Ingredient Notes For This Dark Cherry Breakfast Smoothie:

  • Frozen Wyman’s Cherries – These cherries are dark, sweet and tart. They make for the best breakfast, snack and dessert treats. Just add one cup of fruit to the blender along with one banana.
    • If you can’t find cherries, a great alternative would be wild blueberries, mango and strawberries. (You can also use fresh fruit if you want. However, I like the consistency that frozen fruit provides).
  • Banana – If, for some reason, you do not want to add banana then add two cups of frozen fruit.
  • Seeds – I use a trilogy of flax seeds, chia seeds and hemp seeds, which adds loads of fiber and healthy fats. My favorite brand is below.
  • Granola – For this recipe, you can use store bought or homemade granola. I love to pair this Chocolate Sea Salt Granola with this smoothie. The salty-sweet chocolate clusters and cherry flavor are perfect together! And, bonus, this granola is gluten-free. It contains only 6 grams of added sugar and is packed with probiotics to help your stomach. Just sprinkle a bit on top, for crunch, right before serving.

  1. As always, your food photos are irresistible! And I’m into smoothies with my new eating plan. I was fortunate in our small town to find regular sea salt, so I’m doubtful I’ll find chocolate sea salt but I’ll give it a try! This looks too good NOT to try!!!

    1. Thanks so much! You always make me feel so good. 😉 Actually, it’s not chocolate sea salt. It is chocolate sea salt granola that you can top the smoothie with. And it is so so good! I provide a link within the post if you want to check out the granola. (FYI: I have been able to find the granola at Safeway, TJ Maxx/Home Goods and Amazon as well).
