    It is my absolute favourite time of year; strawberry season that is! In light of strawberry season I am going to share with you one of my absolute favourite ways to hydrate myself using seasonal organic strawberries.

    Strawberry picking has become a yearly ritual that I look forward to. I go to the local organic farm in Stouffville Ontario. It is now my daughter's (who will be 2 in a week) second time going and she loves it just as much as I do.

    It is so much fun (and way cheaper) to get out there and pick your own. It is also a great way to teach kids where food comes from! In my opinion, in the age of supermarkets filled with packaged "food like" products, it is more critical than ever. More to come on that topic in future posts!

    Strawberries are packed with vitamins (especially vitamin C), fiber, and particularly high levels of antioxidants known as polyphenols making them a delicious way to boost your health and protect your body from free radical damage. They are also a sweet low calorie treat that is great for those who are watching their waist lines!

    Now back to the recipe.

     

    Strawberry Lemonade

    1 cup strawberries (frozen)
    1/2 lemon, juiced
    1 tbsp pure maple syrup or raw honey or 10 drops of stevia
    water to cover or coconut water
    add a pinch of high quality sea salt (optional)

    Add all ingredients to a high powered blender and blend until well combined. Enjoy on a hot day while soaking up the sun!

    Please share with me below, what are some of your favourite ways to enjoy strawberries?
