Little Sweet Obsession : STRAWBERRY

Recently, I have been craving with something sweet. But I know sweet stuff doesn't really good for your health and actually have too much of sugar in your diet might cause breaking out. So, few weeks back I saw my little nephew was eating strawberry ice cream , which actually homemade and I kinda attracted me. (It was good though). His babysitter was making him strawberry ice cream and give me a bite, and I was blown away. It totally taste exactly like ice cream but with more watery consistency, but either way it taste yummy.

Ever since then everytime I went to fresh market, I always bought 1 kg of strawberry. I know it's a lot, but it keep me company for 1-2 weeks. :)

This morning I tried make a strawberry smoothies, and it turned out pretty nice. I ate it with my leftover Dunkin Donut and some cut strawberries, and yeah, I do read while I'm eating. It just happened to be my habit. :)
