Daily Greens Smoothie: Sweet Cherry Berry

This delicious smoothie combined sweetness from Bananas & Blueberries and tartness from the Dark Tart Cherries. I used ½ Banana in my smoothie, but if you need it to be sweeter, I would recommend using the whole banana. As always, I used my based Greens Smoothie ingredients, feel free to swap out ingredients to accommodate your need and taste. Enjoy!!

Health Highlights: Cherries are rich in beta-carotene, a heart healthy compound, and vitamin C, an antioxidant that fights free radical activity. By neutralizing free radicals in the body, cherries help reduce inflammation and other inflammatory conditions. (Reader’s Digest Foods that Harm – Foods that Heal, 2013)
