For our family, returning to the days of simple scratch cooking transcends the mere act of just nourishing the body. The act of growing, gathering, and preparing food, brings memories and experiences which can’t be enjoyed from ordering a pizza or shopping in a store.

New seasons excite our family. The thought of new farms opening, new food being grown, new flavors and textures to experience.

Every year, the cold temps from December and January start producing perfectly sweet strawberries. By February, those little berries have grown massively large and are ready to be picked. Living near the strawberry capital, a little town called Plant City, our family spends 11 months out of year dreaming of those sweet berries.

At the first mention of strawberries being ripe and ready, our family takes the drive to a local farm an hour south to gather as much of the sweet goodness my SUV can hold. It’s more than just the strawberries that excite us. Spending hours in the dirt-lined rows, the kids sampling fresh-picked berries, the joy of getting out in nature together as a family. The excitement of filling basket after basket of half-eaten sweet berries, dirty little hands, and red little mouths. And the weeks and months that follow, cooking together in the kitchen:  scones and muffins, salads, smoothies, and strawberry ice cream. The strawberries are delicious, but the act of spending time together and the memories gained last a lifetime.

With February approaching, I’m eager to get back in the strawberry fields.

This smoothie is just one of the recipes we will be enjoying for months after our picking. A smoothie so creamy, it can be passed as a milkshake. Made with homemade probiotic yogurt, raw milk, a hint of natural sweetener, ripe bananas, and perfectly sweet strawberries. A smoothie the whole family is happy to indulge in and one I can proudly serve.

The leftovers from this recipe are often turned into popsicles or push-up pops. I use these little push-up pops and this popsicle mold. Simply fill with the leftover smoothie and freeze. I keep them in the freezer, at a level the kids can reach for a healthy and quick treat.
