Vanilla Cherry Smoothie

Right now, I’m thinking of a hot Portland summer. I’m thinking about laying out on my deck and gazing at the lovely trees, the sunshine glinting off the cool water of the  pool and sipping one of these babies.  We are finally settling in at our new house and I am in LOVE with all the space and the possibilities. I can’t wait to see what adventures lie ahead in my new kitchen.

Earlier in the week, I was wandering around in one of my new-to-me grocery stores and nearly screeched with joy when I saw Organic Frozen Cherries.  Cherries are one of my favorite things.  I began imaging all the lovely possbilites and then only wanted to enjoy it in one of the simpliest of forms.  The smoothie.

Now, I make my own coconut milk so if you decide to use store bought, you should thin it to more of a watery consistancy.    This recipe is super simple and super tasty.  If you want to kick it up a notch, add some rum and enjoy.

    Vanilla cherry? That sounds like a scrumptious smoothie. Plus, the other ingredients are ones I would never have though to combine. I recently used coconut milk in an other smoothie and it really gives it a nice texture.
