THINKING OF SOMETHING PINK? Even in wintertime, a smoothie hits the spot. And if a little pink goes a long way with your crowd, try this honey-sweetened strawberry smoothie.
The star of this show is frozen organic strawberries, which double as ice cubes and make the whole thing frothy as well as sweet, not to mention pink. I try to keep a bag of these in my freezer and the best sources are always Costco or for those with less room in their freezers, Trader Joe’s always has them in stock. They’re picked at the peak of freshness and frozen immediately, so I never feel bad about using them and you shouldn’t either. Especially when they’re available all year–and affordable too.
