Cherry and Lemon Smoothie

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


  • 1Β½ 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
  • Β½ 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.




  1. this looks ridiculously good!!!

  2. Aww thanks sweet lady for featuring another one of my recipes!! I’m so thrilled you loved it as much as I did! I’m going to make the lemon bars this week, yay! πŸ™‚

  3. My mouth is watering! I have everything on hand except the cherries! Darn! Well and I don’t exactly have a high speed blender either come to think of it. 😦 Wonder how it would turn out if I just blended the heck out of it in my regular blender? Thanks for the recipe, maybe with a couple of modifications I can make it work with my blender. But now I know what I’m asking Santa for next year! πŸ™‚

  4. Sounds fantastically refreshing – a great one in the heat of summer!

    • Besides chilly days, it hasn’t felt like winter here so far. No snow at all 😦 But as usual it is grey and gloomy most So a sunny drink keeps me going!

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
