I have been excited for cherries to be in season so I could try some different smoothie combinations. With this Cherry Banana Smoothie, you really could boil it (not literally:) down to the cherries, banana and liquid whether you use water or a type of milk. Since I am at the Vitamix, I usually figure I should just throw extra whole foods in the blender to make our smoothies extra nutrient dense.
- 1 cup cherries, pitted
- 2 bananas
- 1 orange
- handful of spinach
- 1/2 cup carrots
- 1/2 cup strawberries
- 1/4 cup blueberries
- 1 cup water (you may want to add more water if the consistency is too thick)
- 1 cup ice if some of your fruit isn't frozen
- Blend all ingredients until thoroughly blended.
- Serve immediately.
The Verdict: I loved having the banana and cherry dominate. It’s a yummy, sweet combination!
