cherry almond smoothie recipeI am moving a little slow on this Monday morning. We had a great weekend, and it went by too quickly. It seems like there is so much that we want to do, we need to juggle to fit it all in. It is a good problem to have, don’t get me wrong. It just makes for a a busy weekend. After I send everyone off to work and school, I love getting organized for the rest of the week. I clean up the house, make a grocery list, check the calendar, and get ready for the week ahead. I like the idea of a fresh week.

Another part of the routine is to make smoothies for the freezer. Cherries are in season right now, and I love the combination of cherries and almonds together. Taking inspiration from my favorite cherry cobbler, I added lots of cinnamon and honey for a little sweetness. This smoothie tastes like dessert in a glass. If you are making pies, cobblers, or crisps with cherries and have some extra, throw them in the freezer for your morning smoothie. If your cherries are frozen, you can use them in place of ice. I found a cinnamon grinder at my grocery store, and bought it on a whim. It is amazing how much better the flavor is when you use freshly ground cinnamon. If you see one, you should pick one up. I have been using it on everything. cherry almond smoothies recipe1 cup Almond Breeze Vanilla Almond Coconut milk
