After a week of eating out, Ryan and I both woke up craving something healthy and light for breakfast. Since we have plenty of fruit in the freezer, I pulled out some tart cherries and strawberries to put in the blender and made this:
It was based on a recipe from Shape magazine called Tangy Cherry-Berry Sipper. Here is my adaptation:
Cherry Berry Breakfast Smoothie
1 cup frozen strawberries
1 cup pitted tart cherries
1 cup lowfat plain yogurt
1 tbsp wheat germ
2 tbsp honey
2 tsp vanilla
½ cup ice
½ cup cherry juice (or use cranberry juice)
½ cup water
Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into two glasses and serve with a straw.
I love smoothies and it’s a good way to pack in fruits and/or veggies quickly any time of day.
