Cherry, Banana, and Mixed Berry Smoothie
My son spent the day at Cub Scout camp while my daughter and I went hiking around the Portland Audubon Society today. We were all hot and tired by the end of the day so I decided to make them a fruit-filled and healthy smoothie for their late afternoon snack. My daughter’s friend came over to spend the night so I ended up splitting the smoothie between the three of them. It turned out really delicious and refreshing and they all loved it! Side note: I used Rainier cherries because we love them but regular cherries would be delicious as well.
How to Make a Cherry, Banana, and Mixed Berry Smoothie
Place the cherries, bananas, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, ice, honey, and yogurt into a large container. Blend the mixture using an immersion blender until creamy and smooth. Serve with a strawberry garnish and a straw. Enjoy! If you don’t have an immersion blender a regular blender or food processor would work great too.
- Several cherries stems & pits removed
- 2 very ripe bananas
- ¼ cup of fresh blueberries
- ¼ cup of fresh raspberries
- Several strawberries stems removed
- 1 cup of crushed ice
- 1 cup of vanilla yogurt
- 1-2 tsp honey depending on how sweet the fruit is

I rarely see cherries in smoothies which is just so sad when they are so delicious and juicy! This looks super refreshing after a day in the heat.
Ok, I’m loving your daughters hat. She is styling. My kids love smoothies as an afternoon snack. I was actually thinking of creating one with cherries the other day as they are so good right now. I think I will just copy yours and serve it up.
