Cherry Vanilla Smoothie

Tuesday, February 19, 2019
Me and my damn smoothies. I know. I can’t get enough of them. I love me a good ass smoothie. I don’t care the season. I will throw a smoothie together in a heartbeat.

I tend to stick to the usual fruits when I make smoothies. Bananas, strawberries, blueberries, maybe a peach. But I wanted to go for something a little different and decided to go wtih some cherries. I’ll admit…I don’t eat a lot of cherries, but I do enjoy them from time to time. I randomly picked them up during my usual grocery run and decided that I wanted to experiment with them in a smoothie.

I like a lot of cherry flavored drinks so I was assuming at this point that I should like a cherry smoothie…right?

You guys know how I like to make my smoothies. I always throw a banana in there (because it’s just so awesome for potassium) and I just can’t stray away from my good old almond milk. Usually, when I make my smoothies, I already know how much of what I need to use to make what I consider the perfect smoothie. But for this cherry smoothie, I had to steadily add more almond milk to get the consistency that I wanted. This recipe actually created two glasses as opposed to my usual one glass.

My smoothie recipes are never complicated. They are always simple and easy to follow. I try to keep it to three ingredients or less. I think next time I make a smoothie I want to add some vegetables to really give it that extra power.
