Strawberry season is right around the corner here in Michigan and I could not be more excited!!

Strawberry Farm - The Lemon Bowl

To celebrate, every year I take my boys to a local strawberry farm to pick up two flats (16 quarts) – one for my mother and one for us.

When we get home, we head to the kitchen to bake 6 pies! Just kidding. We always freeze our summer strawberries so that we have local, seasonal berries on hand to use smoothies throughout the fall and winter.

If you’re curious about freezing berries this summer, it is easier than you think! Follow this step-by-step guide to freezing strawberries and your freezer will be filled with deliciousness in no time. You can use the same method for raspberries, blueberries, peas and more.

One of my favorite smoothie combinations includes strawberries, juicy mango, banana, ginger, flax and chia seeds.

Adding Banana to a blender

Pro Tip: When making smoothies, the riper the banana the better. I don’t like to add any additional sweetener like honey or agave to my smoothies so using naturally sweet, ripe fruit is the best way to ensure a delicious smoothie every time, without added sugar.

Dicing Mango

Frequently asked questions:

Can I use frozen fruit if I don’t have fresh?

Absolutely! Frozen fruit is always a good option, especially when certain produce is out of season or hard to source locally. We always have our freezer stocked with frozen berries, mango, pineapple, ripe bananas and more.

Can I prep this smoothie ahead of time?

While I don’t recommend blending smoothies in advance, a great time-saving hack is to stock your freezer with Make-Ahead Smoothie Freezer Packs. Then, in the morning, you simply add liquid and blend.

How can I make this smoothie dairy-free/vegan?

A great way to make this smoothie vegan is to replace the yogurt with full fat, Thai-style coconut milk. Alternatively, just add more water.

Are fruit smoothies a healthy breakfast option?

The secret to a healthy smoothie is to stick with unsweetened, whole fruit and no added sugar. For more nutrients and health benefits, flaxseed and chia seed area always a good add-in because they provide fiber, minerals and heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids.

Pouring Smoothie into a glass

The amount of smoothie you’ll have at the end varies based on how much ice you add but this recipe is easy to double if you’re feeding the whole family.

You can blend the chia seeds in but I love garnishing with chia so that you get that little crunchy texture as you’re sipping.

What is your favorite recipe for strawberry season?? We always have big plans for creative ideas but honestly, we love eating them plain. And yes, by “plain” I also mean smashed up with a little sugar on top of a freshly baked shortcake topped with vanilla ice cream.

Happy strawberry season! Your straw is waiting.

    I miss Michigan strawberries! I don’t think the strawberries in Washington are quite as good (maybe it’s the rain?) though the small, flavorful berries of the Puget Summer variety are close. I’m always up for a strawberry smoothie recipe, especially one that includes mango. Right now, though, frozen strawberry kefir is the strawberry recipe I’m making the most.

      Oh thank you for writing in! We definitely are lucky to have our strawberries but I can assure you we don’t take the short season for granted! We are freezing as many as possible!

    I freakin’ love strawberry season! Being relatively close to Michigan, I have gotten to enjoy some of the beautiful strawberries from your neck of the woods. I have been eating strawberries just plain for the last few months. Today I think I am trying out a GF cookie with some fresh strawberries tossed in.

    I’ve always wondered if I’m supposed to add the chia before blending or not, so I guess sprinkling them on top is the best option? I tend to do the chia gels, then mix them into the smoothie. I’m hooked on chia now, so thanks for this recipe!

      I don’t think there’s a right or wrong way at all!! I do it both ways but like it a bit crunchy which is why I sprinkle on top. :)

      Yes!! I totally made it with the mangos from our friends at the Mango Board!! I’m not going to lie, it was nice to have ripe mangos in the house vs frozen which I usually have. Miss you. :) xo

    I’ve never been a big fan of chia seeds but I have actually never tried them in a smoothie! I bet they make for a really yummy thick consistency :)
