Strawberries. The word alone can conjure up images and thoughts of red, vibrant, juicy sweetness. Is there anything better than a big bowl of fresh, local, organic strawberries?

For the longest time I was intimidated by green smoothies. I’m not sure why, but the process just seemed overwhelming.

My 16 month year old eats the smoothies with a baby spoon right out of the cup and doesn’t leave a drop behind.
Both smoothies are loaded with veggies and happen to be dairy free, gluten-free and soy free.
