Summer of Smoothies (week 1): Strawberries and Cream Smoothie

Strawberries and Cream Smoothie | Very Culinary

I spent the last couple of months playing around with different ingredient combinations to bring you an entire summer of smoothies.

And heads-up!! I contacted VitaMix to see if they wanted to play with me and they said YES. Yay!! I will be giving one of their amazing blenders away during the series – you don’t want to miss that! 

I just love smoothies. Their ease, versatility, and deliciousness! Most of them can be made with only a few simple ingredients and in under 5 minutes. Pretty much anything goes…I mean, it’s pretty difficult to screw one up. Too thick, add more liquid. Too loose, add more fruit or ice. Awesome for breakfast, lunch, or even dessert. And certainly perfect for summer time!

Please move to RI and buy the house to the left of me. The neighbors on the right of me own and ice cream factory. They could supply you with frozen yogurt and ice cream and you could make me smoothies every day.

Sounds like a plan to me.
