Tropical Strawberry Smoothie
You must think I’m a smoothie fanatic. Or something like that. I shared this Berry Cherry Pineapple Smoothie two days ago and now I’m sharing this Tropical Strawberry Smoothie. I’ll probably share another smoothie recipe next week. Or maybe not. You’ll have to wait to see what the recipe gods have in store for next week. I will too. Because, randomness.
I’m mostly a random person. I like change. I hate rules. I hate routine. I like change and I embrace it like it’s going out of style. One of the only things I’m not random about is how I make my smoothies. 99% of them are vegan. All of them contain either almond milk or coconut milk and 90% of them contain pineapple. There isn’t much randomness in those features. But if you look at all of the other ingredients I use, you’ll find randomness. Sometimes I use blueberries and cherries. Sometimes I use strawberries and orange juice, as is the case with this tropical strawberry smoothie. Sometimes I don’t use any berries and opt for chocolate and peanut butter instead, as is the case with this Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie.
