Sip the rainbow.

Summertime is all about the classics. When the season hits, I’m nostalgic for sun-kissed beach days and Saturday afternoons spent by the pool. And when I’m in the kitchen, I’m all about anything I can throw on the grill and desserts that satisfy my sweet tooth—without turning on the oven. Strawberry shortcake is my number one, with tender, flaky biscuits and pillowy clouds of whipped cream. And though craving for something sweet loves it, my blood sugar? Not so much. That’s why this strawberry smoothie recipe is a godsend. I can have my (strawberry short-)cake and slurp it, too.

While you may have heard that fruits can spike your blood sugar, strawberries are a special case. As a low-glycemic fruit, you can eat them without worrying about a glucose (blood sugar) spike. And because this smoothie also boasts a number of protein and healthy fat-filled components, you can anticipate sustained energy all throughout the day.
