  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (or milk of choice - Note 1)
  • 1 cup frozen dark sweet cherries
  • heaping 3/4 cup frozen banana coins (~1 medium sized RIPE banana)
  • 2 tablespoons almond butter


  1. NIGHT BEFORE: Peel the banana and slice into coins. Place the coins in a sealed bag in the freezer the night before making this smoothie.*

  2. DAY OF: Combine the almond milk, frozen blueberries, frozen banana, and almond butter in a large, powerful blender. Blend until smooth. Taste and adjust if needed (depending on sweetness of banana you may need to add a bit of honey or maple syrup; we usually don't need to add either!)

  3. Enjoy immediately.

Recipe Notes

Note 1: Any milk works in this smoothie, but it won't be dairy-free or vegan with cows milk.
