Cherry Smoothies

 

The girls picked cherries for their smoothies today! ┬áIn the version I made for the girls I was going for more of a “cherry pie” flavor and one for me that is cherries with chocolate and a hint of amaretto!

 

Cherry Smoothie

1 1/2c coconut milk, or non dairy milk of choice (used So Delicious Unsweetened Vanilla Coconut Milk)

optional additional sweetener of choice depending on your cherries, one of my daughters added about 1/3 of a packet of Stevia In The Raw the other thought it was ok without

As a Vega Recipe Ambassador I receive Vega products, which I used as an option in this recipe. I use Vega not because it is given to me but because it has been my plant-based protein of choice since before I started blogging and some recipes are made with Vega products I purchase. I only write about foods I love, my blog is an extension of my hobby to make fun healthy food creations for me and my family.
