    I do the exact same thing. When strawberries are cheap in the summer, I stock the freezer. Try adding a little Greek yogurt if you want to up the protein content. I do that, and call it breakfast. We are big smoothie fans around here, and there is NO way we could afford to go out for them with 4 kidlets.

      Smoothies are really affordable! I love that about them and they can feed a lot of people at once. I’m always making them for myself and I always make too much. I wish they could last longer as left overs. I try to put the leftovers in the fridge but it’s never as good later. Do you ever try to eat them as leftovers? Any tips I should know about??
