How to Make a Cherry-Banana Smoothie (Skip the Refined Sugar)! by Jaime Reid
Cherries are not only delicious, but also full of an antioxidant called anthocyanins, which help reduce heart disease, cancer and inflammation. Cherries are one of a few food sources that contain melatonin, a hormone that helps maintains the body's circadian rhythm (sleep cycles). Because cherries are high in vitamins C, E and folate, they're great when you crave something sweet.
- 1 cup frozen unsweetened cherries
- 1/2 ripe banana
- 1/2 cup coconut milk
- 1/2 teaspoon raw honey (optional)
- 1 teaspoon chia seeds
- 4 ice cubes
Blend and enjoy!
