This smoothie is a bright way to start the day, and tastes sweet simply because of the cherries. Cheers to good health and glowing beauty!
- 1 cup dark sweet cherries, pitted
- 2 tbl natural almond butter
- ½ cup plain Greek yogurt
- ½ cup unsweetened almond milk
- ½ tsp cinnamon
- pinch course salt
- Place all ingredients in blender, and puree to the consistency you prefer.
- Serve in a glass and enjoy.
Tip: I like to incorporate greens into every meal, and a handful of baby greens in this smoothie is tasty. I personally reach for baby kale for an extra calcium boost, and I like its gritty texture when I don’t blend it too much.
