Notes

Recipe Notes:
  • We didn’t use ice since the cherries were frozen. If you like your smoothie really cold you can use ice instead of water.
  • We used sweet cherries instead of tart cherries for this recipe. If you use tart you might want to add a touch of sweetener.
  • If it isn’t sweet enough for you, add a teaspoon of honey or a drop or two of Stevia. We find that the sweetness of the cherries creates a sweet enough smoothie.
  • When adding cherries to a blender, they've got to be pitted! Most of the time, frozen cherries are already pitted {meaning the large seeds in the middle have been removed} but check just to be sure before tearing up your blender and ruining your smoothie! Of course if you use fresh cherries you will need to remove the pits before adding them to your blender.
