Cherry Smoothie 

Print Friendly 

Description:
Cherries can be sweet or sour, red or black. My favorite varieties are the big black ones. We used to enjoy “Bing” cherries I commonly now see a variety called “Lapins”. Cherries contain anthocyanins, the red pigment in berries. Cherry anthocyanins have been shown to reduce pain and inflammation. Anthocyanins are also potent antioxidants. In addition, they appear to significantly lower blood levels of cholesterol and triglycerides. Cherries are considered a warm food and are great for increasing circulation. They make an excellent detoxifying food, helping the body eliminate uric acid and cleanse the kidneys. They contain ellagic acid, an anticancer compound. So, not only do they taste fabulous, they are also very healthy. A word of caution, cherries are considered to be part of the “”Dirty Dozen” when it comes to fruits and vegetables that have been found to contain the highest levels of pesticide residues. So, it is vitally important to choose only organically grown cherries. They may be considerably more expensive, but your health is worth every extra penny you spend.
Fresh cherries are best stored in a bag in the fruit drawer of your refrigerator. They can also be pitted and frozen into serving sized portions.


Ingredients:
1 cup Almond Milk (or Hemp Milk or Flax Milk or Cashew Milk)
1 - 2 cups pitted cherries
2 T raw cacao powder
Pinch of cinnamon
2 -3 pitted medjool dates


Directions:
Make your own almond milk or purchase it unsweetened. Blend all ingredients and enjoy. You can add ½ cup of ice to make a chilled drink.
