One of the best parts about living in California is the access to some of the world’s best produce. Almost every day of the week, you can find local fresh markets that pop up for the day offering the freshest fruits and vegetables harvested earlier that morning. When June rolls around and the sun is radiating, it’s a sign that one of the summer’s most prized seasonal foods has also arrived: Strawberries have officially entered the chat.


During these months, the crisp air in the local markets is filled with the sweet scent of ripe, juicy berries—and we’ll take it over Chanel No. 5 any day of the week. Since bottling up this intoxicatingly-good aroma is unfortunately not an option, how about making anything and everything strawberry-infused while you can? Starting, of course, with this delicious strawberry basil green smoothie recipe, crafted by writer and recipe developer Emily Maxson, the blogger behind Emily’s Fresh Kitchen and author of Emily’s Fresh Kitchen: Cook Your Way to Better Health.
