Strawberry and Cashew Milk Smoothie

Strawberry and Cashew Milk Smoothie

Spring had definitely sprung during my recent visit to the Midtown Farmers Market, and with the warm midmorning air and sunshine, I couldn’t resist buying a flat of fresh, organic strawberries from Rodriguez Farms. An entire flat may seem like a lot to consume before my strawberries start growing fuzz, but I am a prolific smoothie maker when the weather is fine. After hauling my flat home – and admittedly losing a couple strawberries on the way – I took stock of my fridge and decided to try out my newly purchased cashew milk by Silk to make the following strawberry smoothie for breakfast. The result was delicious. I have to say that cashew milk might just be my new favorite nut milk!
