Smoothie Sunday: Cherry Lemonade Smoothie

I really like cherries, so I wanted to try to use them in a smoothie.  I also decided to make it even more summer-y by making it cherry lemonade flavor.  The main problem with this smoothie was that I was using fresh cherries and don’t have a cherry pitter.  Needless to say, removing all the pits was a major pain in the butt.  However if you can find cherries whose pits have already been removed, or have cherry pitter, this smoothie will go a lot easier.

What you'll need...plus lemon juice because somehow I forgot to take it out for the picture.

Cherry Lemonade Smoothie:

  • 1 cup cherries, pits and stems removed
  • 1 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 5.3 oz. container Greek yogurt (plain or cherry flavor)
  • 6 ice cubes
  • 5 watermelon cubes (optional)
  • Pinch of salt
  • Sugar to taste

In a blender combine the cherries, yogurt, lemon juice, ice cubes and watermelon (if using).  Add salt and sugar if needed.  Once it’s well combined, pour into a tall glass and enjoy.

I added watermelon to both help boost the fruit content and add sugar to this smoothie.  But if you don’t have any watermelon you can just add extra sugar.
