cherry vanilla smoothie


Right now, I’m thinking of a hot Portland summer. I’m thinking about laying out on my deck and gazing at the lovely trees, the sunshine glinting off the cool water of the  pool and sipping one of these babies.  We are finally settling in at our new house and I am in LOVE with all the space and the possibilities. I can’t wait to see what adventures lie ahead in my new kitchen.

Earlier in the week, I was wandering around in one of my new-to-me grocery stores and nearly screeched with joy when I saw Organic Frozen Cherries.  Cherries are one of my favorite things.  I began imaging all the lovely possbilites and then only wanted to enjoy it in one of the simpliest of forms.  The smoothie.

Now, I make my own coconut milk so if you decide to use store bought, you should thin it to more of a watery consistancy.    This Cherry Vanilla Smoothie recipe is super simple and super tasty.  If you want to kick it up a notch, add some rum and enjoy.

    I would try that with frozen strawberries.

    We’ve finally started getting beautiful and warm temps here, and that smoothie would be perfect!

    Oh with the mineral water it’s almost like a fountain drink isn’t it?!

    Sounds delicious and I have to try my hand at making homemade coconut milk or well my blender 🙂

    This looks amazing, although I can’t see myself making coconut milk.

    This would be a great treat in the morning!

    This looks so good!

    Vanilla cherry? That sounds like a scrumptious smoothie. Plus, the other ingredients are ones I would never have though to combine. I recently used coconut milk in an other smoothie and it really gives it a nice texture.

    Looks great and refreshing.

    Yum! I love anything vanilla and cherry just adds to it!

    I think i may substitue the cherry for blueberry. This sounds very good.

    Sounds interesting. I have never tried coconut milk.
