I'm in cherry heaven. 88¢ a pound. Now is when I buy them up... pit them (yeah not so fun) and freeze them for making smoothies, Black Cherry Protein Ice Cream, Cherry Nut Protein Muffins before they get $$$ again. I love cherries.
This was breakfast...
Shelly's Cherry Berry Cottage Smoothie
1 cup Vanilla Soy Milk (you can use any milk)
1/2 cup Frozen Pitted Cherries
2-3 Frozen Strawberries
1/4 cup Cottage Cheese (I used storebought Pineapple Cottage Cheese)
1 Tablespoon Sugar Free Black Cherry Torani Syrup
Whiz in blender till smooth. Top with Sugar Free Land o Lakes Whipped Cream, optional.
You can add Vanilla or Chocolate Protein Powder to this I often do but I was having it with a Banana Nut Protein Muffin so I didn't add it this time. I had plenty of protein with the milk & cottage cheese and the muffin. This is a great way for people who hate cottage cheese to eat it... you can't tell it's in there. Just thickens everything and makes it yum!
