Confession: inspiration for this Cherry Superfood Smoothie recipe came straight from the frozen produce section at my Costco. They have quite an extensive selection of frozen organic fruits and vegetables for way cheaper than my usual grocery store. So, a couple weeks ago when I was strolling through said frozen produce aisle, while also trying to keep my two toddlers from fighting over their growing stash of Costco samples (while they may not always be the healthiest, mamas gotta do what mama’s gotta do), I spotted a massive bag of organic cherries for less than $10… and thus the idea for this Cherry Superfood Smoothie was born!
I love it’s red color, and how well it pairs with other flavors. I’ve made it several times now and my favorite way to top it off is with Cashew Cranberry Orange Frontier Bites and some cacao nibs. They add the perfect crunch!
