Edible Boston’s Strawberry Ginger Smoothie »

by Desiree Currie   There are few things that taste more like summer than a juicy, ripe strawberry. I’m talking about a berry so ripe that it stains your hands and clothes the moment you lay eyes on it—a berry whose season is so short, yet so refreshingly sweet. The other day, I found a recipe […]
