Made with pitted cherries and frozen yogurt (or Ice Cream if you prefer), this isn’t a low calorie mix. But that’s OK, sometimes you just want a treat to taste good and worry about the calories next time. This Cherry smoothie mix is perfect for those times.

Its also easy to turn this cherry smoothie mix 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 pitted cherries
1 banana or a generous ½ cup of frozen banana chips
½ cup of Ben & Jerry’s Cherry Garcia Frozen Yogurt (or your favorite)
1 tbsp
Chia seed

Blend until smooth, pour into a chilled glass, and top with a big Bing cherry!< ?h4>
