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.

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.

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.
