Cherry Berry Smoothie!

Berry Smoothie

Ok, I need your help with something. You know how when you lose weight and you keep checking yourself out in the mirror? How do you pull yourself away? 
Wait...it's just me? Oh. Carry on then. Im just super super super proud of myself for losing 4 pounds so I can pass a mirror, shiny car, window and I'll still check myself out. I feel like I should have a donut for a celebration! Moderation is key people! 

Anyways, this has been one crazy week! Like seriously, it feels like everything I need to do this week is happening all at once. This cold weather does not help my work ethic either because all I want to do is hide in bed under my covers and watch Martin. Going outside wouldn't be an option but duty calls! With it being so cold lately, happiness has come in the form of Target. Oh how I love that store so much. Seriously, if Target was a person I would send them flowers every week just because. Being super busy these last few weeks has left me no time for breakfast in the morning so my smoothies have been my go-to for the last few months.  Thanks to target and the wonder of frozen fruit, I have found some fun new combinations for smoothies. The best thing about smoothies is you can complete sub out what you don't like! You don't like cherries? Use raspberries instead. Not a fan of almond milk? Use regular or soy milk instead.

Before I give y'all the recipe, Let us first give a quick shoutout to the person who came up with the idea to freeze fruit. Like seriously, game changer. You have heard your whole life how fruit taste so much better in season and with it being frozen in the peak of that season, your getting the awesome fruit with a cheaper cost!

According to the USDA, sometimes frozen fruit can be better for your the fruit on the produce aisle because when it is picked, frozen fruit tends to be most nutrition-packed.  Sometimes the fruit picked for fresh produce, is picked just before ripe. Plus, berries are amazing for you!
  • They keep your mind sharp
  • Berries can boost your heart health
  • Because they are full of fiber and liquid, berries can give you a sense of fullness.

Now for the recipe, Enjoy!
