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.
Cherry Vanilla Smoothie
- 1 cup homemade coconut milk
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 5 oz frozen cherries
- 3/4 cup sparkling mineral water
- 2 tablespoons b grade maple syrup
- Combine the coconut milk, vanilla and sea salt and then pour into an ice cube tray and freeze.
- Take the coconut milk ice cubes and combine with the frozen cherries, maple syrup and sparkling mineral water in your blender and mix until you have a smoothie.

You have no idea how good that looks to me!
This sounds absolutely wonderful!
This looks perfect! Cherry and vanilla is such a good combination. 🙂
Aw, thanks. It was so tasty. I really wanted to spike it with Rum too, lol.
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?!
I need to make me some coconut milk
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.

We are smoothie drinking fools over here, thanks for the great recipe!
This would be a great treat in the morning!

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.
This looks so refreshing.
Looks great and refreshing.
