Antioxidant-Rich Cherry-Berry Green Smoothie

This smoothie recipe is one of the smoothies we’ve been enjoying lately, in preparation for the school year and our return to quick and easy breakfast options. This Cherry-Berry Green Smoothie is incredibly simple to make, and relies on two main fruits to add a major antioxidant POW and WHAM: berries and cherries, both of which were just in season #stockedfreezer.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup cashew milk make your own
  • 1 cup baby spinach or chopped kale
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 3/4 cup frozen berries I like to use strawberries or a berry mix: blueberries, blackberries, strawberries.
  • 3/4 cup frozen cherries pitted

Optional Add-Ins*:

  • 2 TB old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1-2 TB nut butter such as: peanut butter, cashew butter, or almond butter
  • 1 TB Rainbow Superfood Smoothie This is my favorite "superfood" powder--it's pricey but I love the ingredients. It will make the smoothie taste chocolatey.
  • 1 scoop collagen peptides I add this to our smoothies for the immune support. It dissolves in hot and cold liquids. This isn't gelatin which is used to make jello-like treats.

Instructions

  1. Add the ingredients to a high-speed blender starting with the liquid/soft ingredients and finally adding the frozen fruit. You may need to add more liquid during the blending stage, so keep extra cashew milk, or water, nearby. Blend the ingredients, on high, for 40-60 seconds.
  2. Serve cold. You can also freeze this smoothie in popsicle molds for a frozen treat!
