Expert Tips

Choose brightly colored, plump berries that are uniform in size and still have the green caps attached. Remove caps before blending!

Strawberries are an excellent source of vitamin C, and provide some potassium and iron.

Stock up on ice from the supermarket if you don't have a great way to make ice at home.
