Cherry Banana Smoothie


Cherry Banana Smoothie recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen
An overload of smoothie pictures have accumulated once again, so I'm sharing five new smoothie combinations today. It's a good thing my kids love smoothies! If smoothies aren't your thing, come back tomorrow for some wonderful Rosemary Bread.

Cherries and bananas combined here to create a delicious frozen smoothie. The frozen fruits really made this smoothie the success it was. I'm sure it would be delicious with fresh bananas as well. However, if you have the chance to freeze them first, I would. The cherries were a nice change for a smoothie and I'll definitely be using them again.
(printable recipe)

2 cups milk
2 large bananas, frozen
1 1/2 cups frozen cherries
1-2 tablespoons honey, optional - taste the smoothie first and see if it is needed, I didn't use any with this smoothie

Layer the ingredients into the blender in the order listed. Puree until smooth.

  1. Hey the smoothie turned purple! Never knew that you can extract purple from cherries. But then again, cherries don't grow in the Philippines so I don't have much experience with them. Thanks for sharing your smoothie combos!

  2. I'm going to try and make this with bananas and oranges instead since I don't have cherries! Wish me luck!
