CHERRY CRUMBLE SMOOTHIE

In honour of Canada Day, I'm sharing a red and white smoothie recipe inspired by one of my favourite summer desserts -- cherry crumble! It's cherry season in Canada, so I wanted to incorporate cherries into a healthy, nutrition packed smoothie that you can enjoy anytime of day (even though it tastes like a dessert!). My Cherry Crumble Smoothie also contains an unexpected superfood vegetable that makes it naturally sweet and decadent tasting -- just like real cherry crumble.
Prep Time 10 minutes
Servings 1

Ingredients

  • 1 cup frozen cherries pitted
  • 1/2 cup frozen bananas
  • 3/4 cup cooked sweet potatoes
  • 1/4 cup quick oats
  • 1 cup unsweetned almond milk
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • 1 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • Dash of cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Cook your sweet potato. For a super quick method, dice 3/4 cup of sweet potatoes, and add to a 1 cup glass measuring cup. Fill the measuring cup with water, covering the potatoes. Microwave on high heat for 2 minutes (you'll hear the water boiling). Strain the potatoes and allow to cool before adding to the Vitamix with the rest of your ingredients. Can't wait? That's okay -- you can add them right away, your smoothie will just have a thinner consistency.
  2. Combine all ingredients in your Vitamix (or similar) and blend until smooth.
  3. Serve in a mason jar, and garnish with a cinnamon stick, sprinkle of oats or shredded coconut and a fresh cherry.
