Food Friday: Strawberry Smoothie

We had a great, relaxing time on our vacation to Myrtle Beach last week. The weather was perfect and not too humid. It would rain during the night so we were able to enjoy the sunny days by the pool and at the beach. Tim got caught up on his sleep and his cable tv shows, Camden enjoyed running around and hanging out with his girl cousins, who were like "little mamas" to him, which gave me a break! Anna loved playing Rock Band with her cousins, now she sings "That's What You Get" by Paramore and "Eye of the Tiger" around the house. I hit the Lilly Pulitzer department at Belk's and bought myself a birthday present (on sale!). It was a wonderful vacation overall.

Now on to Food Friday! New this year to Sea Watch was a Tiki bar/concession stand at the pool. After seeing other people carrying around fruity drinks, Anna decided she wanted to try out a strawberry smoothie (with added whipped cream of course). It was so refreshing! We got a banana smoothie the next day, and we decided that the strawberry one was better. The smoothies were made from a mix but here's a recipe from that sounds very similar to what we had:

6 large strawberries
1 cup Welch's Strawberry Breeze
1/2 cup ice cubes
Can of whipped cream (optional)

Blend juice and with strawberries and add ice cubes until slushy consistency is formed. Soy milk may be used to replace juice for a thicker Straberry Smoothie Recipe. Add whipped cream on top if desired.
