If you want to use frozen strawberries, just measure out 1 cup and let them defrost overnight in the fridge first.
If you prefer a sweeter soup, feel free to add 1 tablespoon of raw honey or 2 Medjool dates to the blender.
Also, for paleo friends, feel free to add 1-2 scoops of collagen peptides to the blender to add protein to this soup.
