Cherries are one of my all time favorite foods and I buy tons of them when they’re in season. I’ve loved them since I was a kid. They’re deliciously sweet and so good for you. Cherries control inflammation (a root cause of many diseases), protect your heart and even help you sleep better. Crazy, right?
When I can’t get my hands on fresh cherries, then I go for the frozen ones. Frozen cherries are easier to eat because they’re already pitted – no seeds to spit out!
I use frozen cherries to make my absolute favorite smoothie ever. It’s healthy and it tastes like dessert, so I have to share it with you.
Cherry Chia Smoothie
- 1 cup almond milk
- 1 banana
- 1 heaping tablespoon of almond butter
- 1-2 tablespoons chia seeds (excellent detoxifiers)
- 1 heaping cup of frozen cherries
Add all ingredients to the blender in the order listed and blend until smooth. Drink up and enjoy! It’s way better than a milkshake.
