We spent Tuesday morning with our crew at Wise Acres Organic Farm picking strawberries! It was crazy hot, but we had a great time, and I think the kids loved it! Because the berries are organic (no pesticides, chemicals sprayed on them) you can pick the berries and eat them right in the field! Clara Jane was a little pro at this! 😉 If you’re in the Charlotte/Matthews area, I would highly recommend this farm.
After picking our strawberries we got a few strawberry lemonade smoothies (made fresh there, no sugar added!) then let the kids swing and play. It was a fun play date!
One way we’ve used the berries is for breakfast. This is a smoothie bowl! We made our normal smoothie (lots of spinach; plus a little of each frozen fruit: raspberries, blueberries, pineapple; a banana; 2 Tbsp almond butter; almond milk) with fresh berries and Grain Free, Sugar Free granola on top for some crunch!
