Healthy Benefits of Strawberries
Not only are these little red juicy berries super flavorful, but they are an awesome little power fruit that can help protect your heart! Strawberries are loaded with potassium which can help protect against heart disease. They are also packed with Vitamin C which has a nutrient that can help reduce certain stress.
Strawberries are also loaded with Fiber which we all know is great for your digestive system. Eating high fiber fruits and vegetables help fight against diseases such as colon cancer and constipation!
Another amazing benefit is that strawberries are loaded with Vitamin C which most of us know is great for boosting our immunity and helping to fight off common colds and flu. Just 1 cup of strawberries contains 100% of your daily intake of Vitamin C.
When are Strawberries In Season?
Well I live in Florida, and here our prime season is between December and March. Exact prime time differs from year to year since the weather plays a huge role in the quality of the crops. But the peak season for most of North America is generally between April and June. Learn more about Florida Agriculture and when produce is in season in Florida.
Fresh Vs Frozen Strawberries In Smoothies
I love fresh strawberries, especially since I can usually find a great selection of in season berries. But I definitely use frozen strawberries, too! For some of the recipes if you are using frozen strawberries, just use less ice since the frozen strawberries will already help give you the consistency you are looking for in a smoothie.
