in a glass – Strawberries, Raspberries, banana and lime smoothie.
Phew, it is now topping 104F here and rising by the day.
Lots of strawberries and bananas.
The thing is the bananas we pick by the hand and it is big,  so I have to think of all ways to use them apart from just freezing them.
Strawberries well you can only eat so many and we can’t give them away.
So it’s smoothie time again, strawberries, a banana, a few frozen raspberries and 3 cheeks of lime juice and about half small glass of coconut milk.
I like my drinks a bit tart and I don’t do sweet drinks so you may want to cut the lime a little and add some honey to sweeten but the beauty of the smoothies is anything goes you can make to order.
If I want it colder and more frozen, then I use frozen bananas.
Now for a little bit more about the Strawberry which is cultivated world-wide, most people love a strawberry….Don’t they????
The garden strawberry was first bred in the 1750’s in Brittany, France and believe it or not, they are not technically berries but accessory fruits!
A member of the rose family they are the only fruit to wear their seeds on the outside. Although the seeds can be propagated, they are more commonly reproduced by the runners which are then pegged into the soil.
A piece of trivia: There is a museum in Belgium dedicated to the Strawberry.
