Category: Fruit, Beverages

 Ingredients List

  • 30 Fresh medium-sized Louisiana
  • Strawberries, hulled and
  • Washed well.
  • 4 tb Honey (preferred) or sugar
  • 8 oz Water
  • Crushed ice


Terry Marks and Joe Gallo are both native New Orleanians. Joe's family was
raised in Independence, Louisiana on their own strawberry farm. Terry and
Joe own and operate GM Signs in Metairie as their primary business, but
look forward every year to getting the concession trailer ready for the
Jazz Fest. Joe's mother Frances and a host of Joe's aunts, uncles and other
relatives and friends work for many hours before and during the Fest
preparing the chocolate-dipped strawberries. At the Fest, Joe, Terry, their
wives Dale Gallo and Linda Marks, and many friends and relatives work
hauling ice, restocking supplies, making the Smoothies, and serving
customers. In a Vitamix machine or blender, place strawberries, honey and
water. Blend at high speed while adding crushed ice to achieve desired
consistency. Smoothie should be stiff enough to hold a straw, but still be
pourable. It takes a little practice to get it just right. This will yield
4 to 5 (8 oz.) drinks. Walt MM
