Brandi, of The Healthy Flavor, inspired me again. With an ample bag of frozen dark cherries from Costco in the freezer and a lot of leftover lemon juice from my Lemon Coconut Breakfast Bars, I decided a frosty one would go well with breakfast earlier this week…..
Cherry and Lemon Smoothie
- 1½ cups frozen pitted dark cherries
- 3 Tbsp fresh lemon juice (about 1 large)
- 2 Tbsp natural nut or seed butter
- 3 Medjool dates, pitted
- 1 Tbsp ground flaxseed
- ½ to 1 cup water
- 1 cup ice cubes
Add ingredients to a high-speed blender. Process on high, tamping, until smooth and creamy, adding more water as needed. Serve immediately with a wide straw.
Serves 1 very large or 2 normal servings.
