Summer Smoothies: Strawberry Cherry

In the second installment of our summer smoothie series, we combine two fruits that don’t usually share the same space. You hear of strawberries and rhubarb or cherries and blueberries, but could these two lovely summer fruits work well together in a smoothie? Of course! That’s the magic of a smoothie — no matter what you combine (most of the time), you’re guaranteed a refreshing result.

Ingredients
1/2 (heaping) cup frozen strawberries
1/2 cup frozen cherries
1 6 oz. container of low fat greek yogurt
3/4 cup orange juice
1/4 cup honey

Directions
1. Put all the ingredients in a blender and whurrrrr away until smooth. Optional: drop a few blueberries on top.

Voila! Sit outside, sip a smoothie and enjoy the sunshine

Post-baking thoughts: A few have asked if the smoothie is too sweet with the honey — I didn’t find it too sweet at all. The yogurt seems to balance the other, sweeter elements in the blender. If you try it without the honey, let me know!
