strawberry and lime smoothie, a la sunny vegan

strawberry lime smoothie, vegan healthy and easy

 

It’s no secret I love strawberries.
It’s also no secret that I love limes.

So, yes YES yes, a strawberry and lime smoothie was only a matter of time. and yes YES yes, this is my new favorite!!

My girl is home sick today and getting fluids and nutrition into her is a top priority. Strawberries are loaded with vitamin c, fiber, antioxidants, but did you know that one serving of strawberries has more vitamin c than an orange? While limes are also full of vitamin c, they have the added benefit of a flavenoid called  flavonol glycosides which may help to fight cancer as well as have a natural antibiotic affect.
And to top all of that nutrition off, it’s a darn pretty drink!

Out of fresh berries? Frozen work just as well so you can enjoy this any time of the year.
