Cherry Smoothie Recipes
Cherries, like strawberries, are one of the most popular fruits because of their great taste. Cherries are easy to enjoy either by themselves, chilled, mixed in drinks, or dipped in different ingredients. They are also very healthy for you as they contain a high amount of antioxidants. Frozen cherries will have a good taste to them but fresh cherries are the best as the flavor just brust in your mouth. Fresh cherries work the best for smoothies as the mixture of the juices from the cherry will color the smoothie as well as provide a great taste.

Good cherries to chose from include bing, van, and lambert.
Other Mixes with Cherry Smoothies
Because cherries have a sharp, sweet taste that goes well with many other flavors, adding different ingredients will increase the taste of smoothies. Fruits like kiwi and pineapple will give an tangy, sweet taste that is very good. Adding other berries like blueberry, strawberry, or raspberries will lighten up the smoothie as well as make it extra healthy. Cherries also go well with most yogurt and ice cream flavors as well. For fruits like honey due melons, cantaloupes, and watermelons, adding cherries into smoothie mixes with these fruits will sharpen the flavor from these fruits. Cherries mix well with most ingredients for smoothies.
