Cherry Delight Smoothie
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!
