I was craving something straw-mazing for dessert. Organic strawberries were cheap today at the grocery store so I bought a couple pounds. They are in season right now and oh so yummy! Strawberries are also very good for your health. They boost immunity and are packed with antioxidants like vitamin C which is cancer-fighting, wrinkle-fighting and great for your beautiful eye's sight. Anti-inflammatory properties make them great for those with stiff joints and arthritis. They help regulate blood pressure, which is good for your heart... and what are strawberries shaped like??? - A heart! And don't forget the two f's - fibre and folate. Fibre is great for digestive health and folate is especially important for expecting mothers or women who are trying to conceive.
So I had all these fresh strawberries and I thought,
'what could I blend these with?'
(I blend everything)...
I had frozen mango in the freezer, one cup left, the perfect amount. So I blended one cup of frozen mango and 6-7 large strawberries in the blender with two pitted medjool dates... Straw-mazing!
It was just what I wanted for dessert.
Straw-mazing Strawberry Mango Sorbet

Until next time,
Keep it fresh and fruity!
