Now that I’ve got us singing – let’s talk about cherries. What?! I couldn’t think of any songs about cherries, but the flavor of these little red beauties makes me want to break into song. The nutrition benefits are worth a verse or two as well, something that covers how these stone fruits may help you sleep better or help you lose weight.
I played around with a bag of frozen cherries at the beginning of the summer and was so happy with every result, it seems to be the magic ingredient, it can do no wrong in my smoothies! BUT then there was this dry spell at Whole Foods – no frozen cherries. No biggie, there’s lots of fun with other frozen fruits to be had, like with raspberries, BUT when I saw organic cherries back in my freezer section this week I bought not one but three bags! Cherries are also a good source of vitamin C so toss in your spinach and enjoy all the benefits. Here is my new favorite way to enjoy them:
1 cup almond milk
1 scoop vega
1 big double handful scoop romaine
1 squirt flax
1 tsp agave
