Healthy Cherry “Pie” Morning Smoothie “ Jersey Girl Knows Best

My oh my, do I love me some cherries! I like to change up my morning smoothie for fear of boredom, so this time I figured I would use some of the frozen cherries I have in my freezer leftover from a cherry pie I made a few months back. I can’t wait for you to try it! Ready?! Let’s do this!

Can I start off by saying that before I blend this amazing smoothie, it smells amazing! *drool* I use most of my basic smoothie recipe ingredients here and I blend it all together with cherry pie filling ingredients. Please don’t use cherry pie filling, fresh is always better!

I use my favorite Ninja blender to get the right consistency of this cherry pie morning smoothie. This is way healthier than actual cherry pie…did I mention that?! 😆

After blending all the ingredients together, the color of this cherry pie morning smoothie is a pale pink.

It’s time to enjoy it! Mind you I love homemade cherry pie, but this cherry pie morning smoothie will do the trick and it won’t hurt my waistline. I hope you enjoyed this recipe and you follow me for more on my YouTube channel, Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest!

  • ***Please do not use cherry pie filling***
  • You can omit the banana for a stronger cherry flavor, but I would increase the oats by 1/4 cup and you may need a little more water.
  • You can also use cherry yogurt instead of vanilla yogurt.
  • You can also use frozen tart cherries, but it may be less sweet, obviously!
