Hi there! Hope you’re having a great week so far.
Today’s Recipe of the Week was born out of a little experimentation. See, we’re big smoothie fans in this house. We all drink ’em, even my husband. Some of us like them made with juice, some of us like them made with milk, but we all agree that they’re better with frozen fruit and vanilla yogurt.
Last week, I decided to make my daughter’s a little extra-special. I tried making a smoothie with some marachino cherry juice and the result was…eh. So when we were at the grocery store picking out frozen fruit, I saw frozen cherries and figured they would be the ticket for the cherry vanilla flavor I was after. Our second effort was definitely blog-worthy.
Cherry Vanilla Smoothie
1/2 c. vanilla yogurt
1 c. frozen sweet cherries
1/2 c. milk
dash of vanilla extract (optional)
Combine ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Add more milk if the consistency is too thick. Enjoy!
