Recipe – Cherry bomb smoothie

Cherry Bomb Smoothie
The taste of summer!

Anyone who has read my blog over recent weeks will know I’ve been slightly obsessed with green smoothies. Well, the 30-day challenge is now finished and I completed it by drinking one green smoothie every day throughout May (which means I actually did an extra day – hurrah!). I really enjoyed the challenge and will definitely continue with green smoothies, although perhaps not every day.

However, as I love smoothies so much, I thought I’d share with you a recipe I threw together this morning for a delicious non-green smoothie (although it could easily be made green with the addition of a handful of spinach or something similar). This one just smacks of summer!

Cherry Bomb Smoothie

  • 200mls fresh orange juice
  • 1 apple (peeled and cored)
  • 1 banana (peeled ad frozen)
  • 10 sweet red cherries (stoned)

Whiz it all up in your blender till smooth and drink it – it couldn’t be simpler! Freezing the banana means your smoothie is lovely and cold, and it’s very easy to do – simply peel the banana, wrap it in cling film or put it into a small food fab (pressing out the air) and pop it in the freezer over night. In the morning, your banana is frozen and ready to use – just break it into two or three chunks to make it easier for your blender to handle.
