Usually with fruits we either have them directly or I make smoothies with them. At times I also juice them. But we prefer smoothies over juices as the fibre from fruits like oranges, apples etc are not extracted when making smoothies.

Both smoothie and juices are rich in nutrients. They do have natural sugar in them and hence in most smoothies you don’t need to add any sweetener. However as per your taste preferences, you can always add sweeteners of your choice.

I have used fresh cherries to make this smoothie. Frozen cherries can also be used. You can increase the quantity of cherries if you want. The recipe makes for 1 tall glass of smoothie and can be easily doubled or tripled.

Making Banana Cherry Smoothie

1. Rinse ¾ cup fresh sweet cherries (100 grams) in water first for a couple of times. Then soak cherries in a bowl of water for 15 to 20 minutes in which ½ tablespoon vinegar is added. This is done to get rid of pesticides. Do use sweet cherries.

2. Later rinse cherries again a couple of times with fresh water. Drain all the water. Then remove the stems. pit the cherries and discard the seeds. You can chop the cherries roughly if you want.
