Strawberry Shortcake Smoothie

Smoothies are great for taking your breakfasts on the go.  This Strawberry Shortcake Smoothie is perfect for that.  I added chia seeds and quinoa flakes to it, so there is good protein and fiber which should keep you full for a long time after.  Did you know that quinoa is actually a complete plant based protein?  That is why I love adding the flakes to my smoothies.  Another breakfast that is great for on the go is overnight oats.  If you haven’t given them a try, I highly suggest you do.   This strawberry shortcake smoothie is vegan and gluten free.  I hope you enjoy it.

Strawberry Shortcake Smoothie - My Whole Food Life

I have been buying up all the strawberries since they have been in season.   Then I freeze them so I can enjoy berries all year long.  I cannot justify the price of berries out of season.  Way too much for me.  That is why I stock up and freeze.  If you like smoothies, you may also like this and this.

Feel free to add greens to this if you wish. I suggest about 1 cup loosely packed spinach or kale. You can also pour this into popsicle molds. Enjoy!
