Winter is about to end here down under and the weather reminds me of childhood memories spent staying at my Lolo’s Baguio house. The memory is so strong that I can still feel the morning cold and smell the morning mist as I reminisce while writing this.
Fresh strawberries also evoke memories of such time. I remember mum making a dessert by mashing strawberries and cream. Sadly, those days are gone. Lolo has been gone a couple of years and the house is nothing but a memory now.
Funnily enough, its strawberry season now and my mom so happen to impulsively buy a faux-nutribullet blender after watching a documentary on the health benefits of juicing. I ended up using it and now my latest obsession is to create Strawberry smoothies!
This recipe is easy to make. Basically, prepare and measure ingredients, blend and serve! It’s also healthy! One serving of this is less than 200 calories! Perfect for easy morning breakfast.
So in honor of my Lolo’s memory, the summer holiday house he loved and Baguio strawberries:
