This winters, we made visit to Panchgani-Mahabaleshwar twice in this season. While our first visit to this hill station was in the month of December, when winter was just getting chillier, our next visit was in month of February, when it had already started to wane off.
On each visit, we ended up buying strawberries in large quantity. While we came back to Pune after our latest visit, we decided to make some recipes using fresh strawberries.
Strawberry Smoothie with fresh strawberry could be that scene-stealer when served to your guests. I have had this smoothie several times since my return from Panchgani and I can’t seem to be getting enough of it.
With the summers gradually coming around, your kids would love to enjoy Strawberry smoothie and having such easy and quick recipes up your sleeves could really be worthwhile.

- Tip of the Day: How to store strawberries
- a) Never wash strawberries before storing. Strawberry has a sponge like texture that will absorb water and can get spoilt
- b) Transfer strawberries to a clean and dry container. Place a paper napkin at the bottom of container. This will absorb extra moisture. You can store strawberries in this partially closed container upto 5-7 days
