This vanilla cherry smoothie is delectable and simple to prepare, making it an excellent choice for either the beginning or the end of the day.
In general, I believe that smoothies can be placed into one of two categories: the nutritious breakfast smoothie or the “dessert” smoothie, which is not quite as nutritious as the former.
I would put this vanilla cherry smoothie squarely in the dessert category, but I also think it would make a fantastic milkshake.
I spent a significant amount of my life not enjoying eating breakfast, and although I’m getting better about it now, for a long time the only breakfast I could handle was smoothies. Although I’m getting better about it now, I spent a significant portion of my life not loving eating breakfast.
This one has been one of my go-to recipes, and it’s wonderful because it can be easily changed to meet your smoothie mood! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

The cherry flavor is the most prominent, but you can also pick up on the raspberry and Greek yogurt notes.
dense and rich in texture
incredibly simple! Put all of the ingredients in a blender and process them until they are completely smooth. The water and the substances that are more delicate should be added first.
Notes and Suggestions:
You can make this an even simpler breakfast by pre-portioning all of the frozen ingredients into freezer-safe glass or plastic containers, or into plastic baggies. After that, all you need to do is remove the container from the freezer, add the liquid of your choice, and then add the yogurt, and you’re good to go!
You may up the amount of protein in this by adding your preferred vanilla protein powder, flax seeds, or chia seeds, among other options.
To increase the amount of vegetables in the dish, simply add a handful of spinach or any other type of leafy green!
You might use cottage cheese as an alternative to Greek yogurt if you don’t like the flavor of Greek yogurt. You will still receive all or most of the protein that yogurt provides, but the flavor of yogurt will not be there. Additionally, cottage cheese is typically more affordable.
