Dark Cherry Smoothie
Keep a bag of cherries in the freezer, and you can make this incredible smoothie as a snack, or even a dessert.
- 1 cup frozen sweet cherries, pitted
- 1 frozen banana, cut in chunks (see Tip)
- 1 1/2 cups plain yogurt or milk, dairy or other
- 6 fresh dark cherries, for garnish
In a blender, combine the cherries and banana, add yogurt and blend to puree. Transfer to two glasses and garnish with three cherries per glass.
Tips & Notes
If you’ve got too many ripe bananas, cut or break them into chunks, seal in a plastic bag, and pop into the freezer to add to future smoothies.
