Colorado Department of Agriculture

Each month, the Colorado Department of Agriculture features a different commodity to highlight the variety and quality of products grown, raised or processed in the state. This month, Colorado strawberries are featured in our Strawberry Banana Soy Smoothie recipe.

When selecting strawberries, choose shiny, firm berries with bright red color and green caps, and avoid soft or mushy berries. Strawberries are fat free, sodium free and high in vitamin C and folate.

Fun Fact! The average strawberry has 200 seeds, and it is the only fruit with seeds on the outside.

Look for Colorado strawberries at your local farmers’ markets or at restaurants across the state.
