Strawberry season is one of our favorite times of the year. Aside from eating them straight off the bush, my family and I enjoy all kinds of baked goods and treats with strawberries, like Freezer Jam, Strawberry Fraisier Cake and Strawberry Daiquiri Pie. Since we have quite a bit of warm weather almost year-round, frozen drinks are always welcome. Fresh Florida strawberries are often a main ingredient, like in my Frozen Strawberry Lemonade.

Did you know that 8 medium strawberries equal your daily requirement of vitamin C? My family loves supporting locally grown, nutritious, and delicious Florida Strawberries. #ToddlerLnC has fun picking strawberries in the field, and enjoys everything I make with them. She usually is a strawberry-covered mess even before we get in the car, because she eats just as many as we pick out in the fields.

I love letting her pick and eat something that is nutritious and healthy, especially locally-grown Florida Strawberries, which are perfect for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. Fresh from Florida Strawberries are available December through April, so everyone can get flavorful and nutritious strawberries all Winter long.

Citrus is great in strawberry recipes, especially lemons, because they are so bright and really brings out the flavor in strawberries. I decided to use Meyer Lemons in my frozen drink, since they are in season. Meyer Lemons have a bright yellow-orange skin, and are sweeter and less acidic than conventional lemons found in the grocery store.

Vanilla Greek Yogurt was also added, which is a healthier mix-in for drinks and makes it extra creamy. The tart lemon and creamy yogurt are such a delicious combination for strawberries! It is almost a mix between a smoothie and a daiquiri - so tasty!
