I cannot tell you the number of recipes that have been created as a result of leftover ingredients. Taco pizza, cuban pizza, chicken broccoli alfredo quesadillas, pumpkin spice overnight oats, pumpkin spice granola, and even my no mayo egg salad was born out of two lonely eggs needing to be used up. I guess I have a thing with not wanting to waste ingredients.

This new Cherry and Blueberry Green Smoothie is my latest “leftover ingredient” recipe addition. I always have fruit in the freezer for my green smoothies. Love them. Well, I had a bag of frozen blueberries for my blueberry and kale smoothie and a bag of cherries for my cherry vanilla or cherry chocolate almond smoothie. Anyway, as I was organize my freezer I noticed I had left only a little of each fruit. So, the next morning I decided to throw them into my blender (I have this Vitamix btw) and whip up a new green smoothie recipe.

I really love frozen cherries in my smoothies. They are so good and create such a pretty color. Add some blueberries and there is no way you could tell this smoothie has kale in it. This is a perfect “not so green” smoothie for the person who can’t get past the green in a green smoothie. Wow that is a lot of green in one sentence.

With the cherries, blueberries, and ½ a banana I did not feel the need to include any additional sweeteners. It was perfect just the way it was. I did add in a little pure vanilla extract for flavor and chia seeds for fiber and protein. Did you know there is 5 grams of fiber and 3 grams of protein in one tablespoon of chia seeds. That is quite the nutritional punch for such a small amount. No wonder it is considered a power food.

This cherry and blueberry green smoothie has definitely earned a place in my green smoothie rotation. It makes a little less than 4 cups. I usually drink the whole thing for breakfast but you can certainly share it too. The nutritional information is figured for the entire recipe.

  1. I noticed this is the first time your receip said to drink it right away or the texture will change. I love your receipes but can’t drink them when I first get up (meds to take on an empty stomach, then have to wait 1 hour to eat). My smoothies often change texture – some just thicken slightly, but some set up like pudding. They still taste good – they are just really, really thick. Do you know what causes that?

    Just wondering – thanks for all the great receipes!
