Black Cherry Vanilla Almond Smoothie

This is one of my favorite smoothies. The black cherries are perfectly sweet and the almond matches up so well. Sometimes I pump up the almond a bit and use almond milk instead of regular milk. It almost tastes like dessert!

I loved these crazy straws growing up. I was so excited to find one! Although not the widest to allow for smoothie passage, it’s still fun to look at.

Ingredients:

1 cup frozen pitted black cherries

1/2 banana

1/4 cup low-fat vanilla yogurt

1 Tbsp sliced almonds

3/4 cup milk or almond milk

Directions:

  1. Place ingredients, in the order listed, into a rocket blender. Seal with the cross blade base and pulse until well combined.
  2. Enjoy!!

    Made this for breakfast this morning, with slight adaptations, and my husband pronounced it delicious. That’s a very high compliment from him. The only changes I made were to use plain non-fat Greek yogurt, omit the nuts, and use half a scoop of vanilla-almond protein powder plus a splash of vanilla extract (I’m a bug about having a high level of protein in my meals). This recipe is a definite keeper. :-)
