This cherry smoothie recipe is bursting with fruity flavor! Blend it up to curb a sweets craving or a healthy way to start the day.


  • 2 cups frozen cherries (we use sweet cherries)
  • 1 banana (room temperature)
  • ¼ cup Greek yogurt*
  • 1/2 cup orange juice (or cherry juice)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tablespoon maple syrup (or honey)
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 6 ice cubes


  1. Place all ingredients in a blender, breaking the banana into pieces. Blend until creamy and frothy, stopping and scraping down the sides as necessary and adding a splash more water or juice if necessary. Serve immediately or store in a covered jar in the refrigerator for 2 days.


*Variation: For a chocolate cherry smoothie, add 2 tablespoons cocoa powder and 1 to 2 tablespoons maple syrup. For a dairy-free smoothie, omit the Greek yogurt and add one of the protein adders in the post above (you may need to add a bit more liquid to get it to blend).
