Amazon Cherry Smoothie

1/2 c frozen cherries
1/2 c frozen bananas (about 1/2 banana)
1/2 c frozen strawberries
1/2 c milk product
1/2 c yogurt product (any kind that is plain and unsweetened)
1 tsp freshly grated ginger
1 T freshly ground flax seed

Blend in blender until smooth.


(1) We often freeze bananas for smoothies.  The easiest way is to freeze them peeled so that you don't have to try to peel them when they are frozen.  Sounds like a no-brainer but I only post this because of one too many times of dealing with frozen fingers.  :)

(2) If you do not use fresh ginger quickly enough to keep it from going bad in the refrigerator, freeze it whole and unpeeled in a Ziploc bag.  When you need some fresh grated, just pull out the frozen ginger and grate.  Voila! 

(3) Store your flax seed in the refrigerator to keep it from going rancid.  Especially in the warmer months.
