Cherry Delight Smoothie

 High Nutrition Cherry Smoothie for you 10-a-day

Cherries are super-sweet and so are an ideal ingredient for a summer smoothie. But they aren't just sweet; they are one of the best sources of antioxidants, are high in fibre, vitamin C, vitamin A and potassium. They also contain calcium, protein and iron. As if that wasn't enough, cherries are a natural painkiller and anti-inflammatory, and have been recommended for people suffering from arthritis and gout. All this wonderful nutrition and a delicious smoothie into the bargain!

Ingredients:

  • 450g spinach;
  • 270ml water;
  • 1 banana;
  • 100g blueberries;
  • 225g cherries (look for frozen cherries as they tend to be cheaper and are pre-pitted).

 

Directions:

Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
