Light Strawberry Chocolate Smoothie
So this isn’t a particularly difficult recipe post. In fact, just about anyone can make a strawberry smoothie.
My original plan was to come up with something a little more creative, like dark chocolate and cherries, but cherries (unlike the cherry blossoms outside) are no where to be found right now.
Strawberries on the other hand, are huge, redder than usual and on sale!
How gorgeous is this smoothie? Couldn’t you just reach out and grab it? The chocolate around the rim is actually honey and a teaspoon of cocoa powder.
I got a new book yesterday. Commencement by J. Courtney Sullivan, and I can’t put it down. I highly recommend it. I still need to read her first book Maine that everyone raves about.
Is it 5:30 yet? I’m ready to hop on the Metro train with my new book and call it a day!
