STRAWBERRY FIELDS FOREVER SMOOTHIE

Oh John Lennon, I wish!  But I am certainly grateful every time strawberry season arrives!

Strawberries are a blessing for the body and mind as well as the taste buds.  They are loaded with fiber and vitamins & minerals including vit C & K, folate, manganese, and potassium.  Strawberries are also rich in amazing phytonutrients like anthocyanins that are believed to help burn fat, boost memory, build bone health, reduce inflammation, and stave-off cancer and cardiovascular disease!

For 2 servings, blend until smooth:

  • 1.5 cups fresh or frozen strawberries (option to add ice if using fresh berries)
  • 1 cup steamed-then-frozen cauliflower
  • 1 cup full-fat coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut water
  • 2 Tbsp white chia seeds
  • 1 to 2 Tbsp almond butter (omit for nut-free)
  • 2 servings collagen peptides (or 2 Tbsp shelled hemp seeds or 1 scoop natural protein powder of choice)
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • raw honey (nonvegan), pure stevia or maple syrup to sweeten as desired
