Strawberry Coconut Smoothie. Fuel your morning with this delicious smoothie combo of fresh strawberries and coconut.

 

There is nothing better than fresh picked from the farm strawberries. I have completely spoiled myself and can not buy strawberries from my chain grocery stores. I live in Maryland and the California strawberries they sell are not even pink in the middle when you slice into them. They are white. Ew! I can’t wait for Strawberry season. I absolutely love picking strawberries at the farm. I get a whole flat and freeze them for smoothies. Can we just agree that of all the berries strawberries are the best for smoothies?!

I may have went a little overboard on the garnishes for this Strawberry Coconut Smoothie. For the love of these these ripe juicy local berries I sliced one up for a super sweet burst of strawberry in this Strawberry Coconut Smoothie. I also sprinkled the top with coconut and oats for a small hint of crunch. I know this sounds like dessert but this Strawberry Coconut Smoothie is for breakfast.

I love smoothies for there flavor and convenience. They are perfect as a breakfast on the go! No crumbs, no mess just deliciousness in a cup. I blend up smoothies before heading out the door to run errands. ┬áMy only tip is don’t forget about the cup and leave it in your car. It won’t be pleasant finding that old smoothie cup in your car a few days later.
