Strawberry Smoothie Inspiration!
I always get new recipe ideas when we travel and this one was inspired by a recent family trip to NYC. When I asked my two nieces where they wanted to eat, Black Tap was at the top of their dining wish list.
Black Tap is one of the city hot spots serving up giant milkshakes that are a big deal these days.
This Strawberry Shortbread smoothie recipe is my clean eating #NoRegrets alternative.
