I love cherries. As soon as they start to appear in the market in late June I go nuts. When organic cherries were recently on sale at Whole Foods I bought so many that I ended up freezing a whole bag full. Don’t be surprised if you see me making this smoothie in the middle of the winter and pretending it’s a hot summer day!

Besides their amazing taste, cherries have a whole host of health benefits. They are packed with antioxidants, have anti-inflammatory properties, are a low sugar fruit, and contain melatonin, which can help regulate your sleep! Pretty amazing little guys huh?

Cherry Vanilla Shake

  • 1.5 cups almond milk (fresh or store bought)
  • ½ an avocado
  • 2 large handful cherries (pitted and preferably organic)
  • 2 large handfuls ice
  • 2 T vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • liquid stevia to taste
  1. Combine all ingredients in a high speed blender until smooth and creamy.

Food for Thought:

You could also add 2 T Unsweetened Cocoa Powder and make this a Chocolate Cherry Shake!!!
