Cherry, Banana, and Mixed Berry Smoothie

Cherry, Banana, and Mixed Berry Smoothie

My son spent the day at Cub Scout camp while my daughter and I went hiking around the Portland Audubon Society today.  We were all hot and tired by the end of the day so I decided to make them a fruit filled and healthy smoothie for their late afternoon snack.  My daughter’s friend came over to spend the night so I ended up splitting the smoothie between the three of them.  It turned out really delicious and refreshing and they all loved it!  Side note: I used Rainier cherries because we love them but regular cherries would be delicious as well.  

Cherry, Banana, and Mixed Berry Smoothie

Place the cherries, bananas, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, ice, honey, and yogurt into a large container.  Blend the mixture using an immersion blender until creamy and smooth.  Serve with a strawberry garnish and a straw.  Enjoy! If you don’t have an immersion blender a regular blender or food processor would work great too.

Cheers!!!

    I rarely see cherries in smoothies which is just so sad when they are so delicious and juicy! This looks super refreshing after a day in the heat.

    Ok, I’m loving your daughters hat. She is styling. My kids love smoothies as an afternoon snack. I was actually thinking of creating one with cherries the other day as they are so good right now. I think I will just copy yours and serve it up.
    xo,
