The strawberries have arrived, the strawberries have arrived! You have no idea how happy it makes me to see Florida strawberries back in our grocery store. Our season starts in December (hard to believe I know) and I think it’s safe to say that strawberries are probably the most consumed fruit in my family. We go through strawberries like crazy when they are in season (whether from Florida or California).

For the most part, we eat strawberries as is for snacks and as part of our meals. I pack them almost everyday in my kids’ lunchboxes and throw them into spinach salads too. My daughter spotted these Strawberry Banana Muffins (they are whole wheat – bonus!) over my shoulder on Pinterest last night and made me promise I would make them for her.

Of course, strawberries in smoothies are a given. I made this Strawberry, Grapefruit and Ginger Smoothie the other afternoon from the Clean Slate cookbook (I’m giving away a copy of it with three other healthy cookbooks – don’t forget to enter!). I found it in a section of the cookbook that is dedicating to “rebooting your system” and drinking to your health. There are 8 pages filled with smoothie and juice combinations and honestly, I want to try every single one of them. This Strawberry, Grapefruit and Ginger Smoothies falls into the “detoxifying” category and is recommended to drink whenever you are feeling sluggish (or to prevent feeling that way). I’ll take one every day.

In all honestly, my kids were not a fan of the grapefruit part of these smoothies. I love grapefruit and was excited to include it in a smoothie finally, I thought it was delicious. For my kids, I substituted an orange instead and all was right in the world.

Cheers!

  1. Love this combo, Aggie. And the picture of your beautiful daughter! Love!

  2. We love strawberries too! The season in Michigan is so short, so when we do have local berries I feel like we glutton ourselves on them! LOL

  3. This sounds great and so different from other smoothie recipes out there.

  4. This smoothie sounds so refreshing. A perfect pick-me-up!!

  5. Oh goodness. It seems as though I can actually smell those strawberries through the computer. I’m buying strawberries the next time I’m at Costco!

  6. 1st: Your sweet girl is BEAUTIFUL and looks just like you. 2nd: I’m on the next plane to Florida…. it’s snowing and freezing here and I am TOTALLY jealous of seeing sunshine and hearing you have fresh berries. So please make my room ready. 3rd: You are ROCKING some excellent food photography GirlFriend. And of course…. the recipe sounds DIVINE. 🙂

  9. I love this, so fresh and tasty! I need one of these right now!!!

  10. Since I’ve been preggers I’m obsessed with smoothies! Kale smoothies from Whole foods when I can’t make my own since my blender was packed away in storage while we’ve been doing a kitchen renovation. I have my blender back now and am SOOO making this! I LOVE grapefruit and do love it when our Fla strawberries come into season! Thanks for sharing!

  11. This smoothie sounds delicious. I just ordered Clean Slate and can’t wait to cook from it. Smoothies are one of my favorite things to have for a snack, but I can never find a recipe I like. I love that this has ginger in it. It’s so good for digestion and I love its “bite”.

  12. Just look at your sweet, sweet girl – she’s growing up so fast! My parents are in Sarasota for a few months right now and just said how the strawberries are out. Want! I love all the bright flavors in this smoothie – am going to give it a try this weekend!

  13. I absolutely love the strawberry ginger combination. I love that sweetness mixed with the spiciness of the ginger. Perfect looking smoothie!

  14. Loving the grapefruit and ginger in this smoothie. I haven’t tried a grapefruit smoothie but it is one of my favorite fruits so now I have to try it! Beautiful color too.

  15. I’m loving all the flavors in this smoothie and wishing we could get the fresh fruit you can in the middle of winter! I’ll have to make up for it by drinking one of these! Pinned.
