This is really good and healthy! Just a little trivia about cherries: Cherries were brought to America by ship with early settlers in the 1600s. Cherry trees were part of the gardens of French settlers as they established such cities as Detroit, Vincennes, and other Midwestern settlements. Today, on average, the United States produces more than 650 million pounds of tart and sweet cherries. Michigan grows about 75 percent of the U.S. crop of tart cherries, usually about 250 million pounds.
- 1 1⁄2 cups almond milk
- 1⁄2 cup apple juice
- 1 cup cherries, pitted (or frozen)
- 2 medium bananas
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1⁄2 cup raw cashews
- Place all ingredients in blender in order listed. Put on the lid and process until smooth.
- Pour into glasses and enjoy!
Very tasty! I didn't have any cashews on hand, so I threw in an extra tablespoon of almond butter (I used water+almond butter for the almond milk). I often buy cashew butter as well, so I'll probably use that in replacement for the cashews in the future. :)
Made it just as written. Tasted good but I couldn't get the cashews to really blend in so it was uncomfortably chunky. Would be a really great drink for those looking to put on weight or needing extra calories.
This is such a wonderful smoothie!!! I originally made it for DH2B for breakfast but ended up drinking his and making another one for him!!! I love the cashews combined with the almond milk. This is a fabulous smoothie!!!
