Cherry Vanilla Protein Shake #SmoothieMonday

Hi Everyone,

Happy Smoothie Monday!  I have to tell you I am on a serious cherry kick!  I can’t get enough of that fiberlishous little fruit!  They are so plump, sweet and juicy!  Since it is cherry season after all, I couldn’t go without creating a cherry smoothie!  So as you can guess, today’s smoothie is made with cherries!  Let me introduce to you my newest creation, Cherry Vanilla Protein Shake.
Cherry Vanilla Protein Shake
This shake tastes like a dessert! It’s sweet, thick, creamy, has the most delicious, fresh cherry flavor with just a hint of vanilla. I think I am in love! The smoothie is so simple too! It only contains 3 ingredients, cherries, coconut milk and vanilla protein powder.
Cherry Vanilla Protein Shake
This smoothie is so healthy for you too! I used fresh cherries that I pitted myself and froze them. This time of year I always buy a ton of cherries and pit them and freeze them. It saves me money, but the best part is I can savor the fresh cherry flavor all year. If you don’t have fresh cherries, I do know that Target carries frozen cherries that taste wonderful and are around $3.00 a bag. It’s there Market Pantry brand. For pitting the cherries I used OXO Cherry Pitter. I bought mine at Cost Plus World Market, but I believe Target carries it too. I have been using the pitter a lot lately. You’ll see in the coming weeks.
