strawberry coconut smoothie

I just realized we are about halfway through with summer. 
Bummer, right?! I know! 
But hold back your tears, friend. 
There's still some time to drink corona at the water, to play soccer in the park, to eat as many strawberries as your eyes can grasp and to dance until the sun comes up.

Talking about strawberries...
I'm putting a whole bunch of them in the easiest, most basic yet incredible delicious smoothie.
It's done in under five minutes and contains only good things.
Things that are not chocolate, nor french fries.
This, my dear friends; is health..
