Strawberry Delight

Secret #1: I don't enjoy any fruit (other than melons & apples) raw. I have a really hard time getting past their textures. I kind of panic when I have eat them. It's weird, I know. So the only way I can get all the nutrients & antioxidants from fruit is to blend them up into smoothies/smoothie bowls! Hence, why I drink them all the time (and maybe how I ended up owning a smoothie bar??) 

My favourite fruit to work with in smoothies are frozen (or fresh!) strawberries. I think they are perfect on their own and I eat a ton of them! Secret #2: my close friends & family order the "Jehna Smoothie" (no, I didn't name it that!) from SimplyWell, a "off-menu-secret-item" that people become obsessed with. Here's the recipe (if you can even call 3 items a recipe) and I highly advise you try it out!

INGREDIENTS:

If you're making into a smoothie bowl, these are the toppings I used:

  • 2 tablespoon Sea Salt Manitoba Harvest Roasted Hemp Seeds
  • 2 sliced strawberries 
  • Sprig of mint (I chopped it up and mixed it in after the photo)

HOW TO:

  1. Add powders into blender (creates less of a mess if you do those first) 
  2. Add strawberries
  3. Add water
  4. Blend on high for 2 minutes until smooth. Add more water if needed 
  5. Add to cup or bowl
  6. Top with your fav toppings!

Let me know what you think! And yes, you can order this at SimplyWell! (Let me know if you think of a better name for it!) We also sell the protein & greens powder in-store!
