Cherry almond smoothie

Cherries seem to brighten things up — no matter how you use them. Why not incorporate them into a tasty and good-for-you breakfast smoothie? Since mornings can seem rushed, this is the perfect solution when you’re short on time. Simply put all your ingredients in the blender and you’ll be serving up smoothies in seconds!

You could always serve this smoothie as a dessert option, too! Consider shaving chocolate over the top, or maybe adding a dollop of whipped topping to it.
