Cherry Blossom Smoothie Recipe

I love smoothies, winter or summer, they are always a tasty treat. So, if you have a Cuisinart Smoothie Maker or a Cuisinart CBT 700 Blender you will love this Cherry Blossom Smoothie Recipe. If you use the sweet cherries this smoothie is a real sweet treat. So, try it, even though it is now winter in the most places, you will love it.

Cherry Blossom

What You Need:
  • 2 C cherries, sweet or tart and frozen
  • 1 banana, peeled and cut into pieces
  • 1 C cherry juice
  • Maraschino cherries
How to Make It:
  1. Place the frozen cherries, the banana pieces and the juice into the blender.
  2. Blend until smooth.
  3. Pour into glasses and top with the maraschino cherries.
Sweet cherries make this drink quite a sweet delight. Tart cherries take away some of the sweetness but they still make a delightful drink.

Remember, the Cuisinart CBT 700 Blender is a strong blender and will be able to handle anything you throw its way. If you use the cherries frozen you will see that you get a "soft" and thick almost ice cream texture. If you want this kind of almost "ice cream" smoothie you can also freeze the banana before making it.

A food idea is to cut fruit and freeze them in byte sizes ready to make smoothies when you need them. This way you can make use of specials on fruit etc.
