Just in time for spring comes a fruity and tart “Berry Cherry” smoothie mix that mixes cherries and mixed berries for a smoothie that is both really good and really nutritious.

Don’t let the simplicity of this recipe fool you! Enjoying this mix is going to give a lot of antioxidants, vitamins, and an energy boost as well.

  • 1/2 cup Cherries (no stems! If you can’t get fresh cherries don’t beat yourself up; frozen will work as well)
  • 1 cup Blueberry Juice (but not from concentrate, that doesn’t have all the good stuff in it)
  • 1/2 cup of mixed berries, whatever you like best
  • 1 Tbsp Chia seed. We like Chia seed in smoothies better than Flax but that will work too.

And that’s it! Everything in the blender at once and mix.

Two tips:
-If you like your smoothies cold, use the frozen cherries and chill the Blueberry Juice first.
-This is a very open source smoothie! Just about any type of berries you like are going to work really well.

Smoothies are easy to make, and this banana cherry smoothie recipe is a great source of vitamin C and adds fiber to your daily diet. It is a twist to a cherry juicer recipe because it uses black cherry juice concentrate-and what a wonderful flavor it makes. If you like cherries, you need to try this recipe very soon.

Its also easy to turn this Banana Cherry smoothie treat into a nutrition powerhouse just by adding a tablespoon of Chia seed. Chia is a natural seed that adds a large measure of nutrition including heart healthy, cholesterol fighting omega 3 fatty acids and antioxidants. Even better, unlike Flax, Chia doesn’t have a noticeable taste of its own so adding it here won’t change the delicious results.

In your favorite blender mix:

– 1 cup of frozen cherries
– ½ cup frozen banana chips
– 1 tablespoon of Black Cherry Concentrate
– 1 cup non-fat Yoplait Cherry Orchard yogurt
– 1 Tbsp. Chia seed
