Daily Routine Fitness: Zesty Strawberry Watermelon Smoothie
It’s officially strawberry season here in B.C and my little family is loving it! We have been blending, baking and enjoying our body weight in strawberries these days. Adelaide is especially fond of these beautiful red treats and the delicious snacks that have been filling her day. As the days get warmer, we tend to eat lighter, fresher and more local based meals. It has been our goal over this last year to really enjoy the foods that are in season and can be accessed easily. So as the berry bushes start filling up, we are not only using these items daily, we also are filling our freezer and getting ready to prepare for the colder, dryer months.
This Zesty Strawberry Watermelon Smoothie is a delicious start to any morning. I came up with this smoothie after my friend ” Justine ” sent me a little gift of essential oils. For awhile now I’ve been starting my morning off with a warm cup of water and lemon essential oils to give my gut the proper jump start it needs for the day. I recently started experimenting with adding these delicious and healthy oils to my recipes and I’m loving it! Just 1 drop of lemon adds the perfect amount of zest to this traditional fruit smoothie.
All of my ingredients have been purchased at our local farmers market and Nature’s Fare Markets – Kelowna.
- Place all ingredients in blender and mix till smooth.
