Cherry Berry Smoothie

 Many years ago we had a house that had a HUGE, old cherry tree in the yard, so we loved finding different recipes that called for cherries. One of my favorite was this tasty Cherry Berry Smoothie, because it was super refreshing, full of fruity flavor, and a healthier afternoon snack option!
Cherry Berry Smoothie / Busy Mom's Helper

1 cup Frozen tart cherries, pitted
1 cup Low fat milk (we used skim)
½ cup Plain lowfat yogurt
4 tbsp. Blueberries, not frozen
2 tbsp. Honey
1 tsp. Pure vanilla extract
Sprinkle of cinnamon (about 1 tsp.)
16 Ice cubes
Blend all ingredients in blender until smooth. Garnish with almonds, walnuts or cherries, if desired.

Notes: I found it’s easier to blend everything except the ice cubes first, then put those in and finish blending. Makes 4 8-oz servings. 164 calories per serving (based on 1% milk).

Would you rather try this Cherry Berry Smoothie for snack, or a quick breakfast recipe?
