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.  

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!!!
