Happy thinking out loud Thursday! Or should I say, happy Cinco De Mayo? ;) Anyone have any plans for this holiday that holds absolutely no meaning for me but gives me an excuse to eat all the Mexican food I want?

Strawberry Cheesecake Smoothie

Thick, creamy, and bursting with strawberry flavor, this Strawberry Cheesecake Smoothie is dairy-free, gluten-free, and refined sugar free! Strawberry season is here my friends, and I couldn't be more ready for it. I never realized upon moving here just how many fruit stands would be near me. I can quite literally drive 5 minutes up the road and run into at least two different strawberries stands that are placed directly in the middle of berry fields. Talk about fresh produce!
