The best Spring cool-off

What is the best way to hydrate after a long day of spring sun? A smoothie. Not only that but a Cherry Vanilla smoothie. This smoothie tastes like the best sweet treat but doesn’t have the guilt.

Smoothies are one of the easiest drinks to make up and they are perfect for a grab and go or a relaxing break at home!


1 1/2 cups of frozen pitted cherries

1 1/4 cups of milk

3 tablespoons of sugar

1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon of almond extract

Pinch of salt

1 cup of ice


Blend together. Serve cold and enjoy!
