We all know cherries are good for us but did you know a cup only has 87 calories and they are chock full of antioxidants?! Cherries are a great source of fiber, full of beneficial vitamins and reduce inflammation. So after that next workout, pop a handful of cherries. Your body will smile.
I’ve been eating lots of cherries and made a delicious cherry smoothie I thought I’d share. Try it before or after your workout of just as a refreshing lunch.
1 cup cherries, pitted (pop them in the freezer if you want your smoothie thicker or add ice to your smoothie).
1/2 c. greek yogurt
1 cup OJ
and of course, greens – 1 cup spinach (or a handful or two for those of you who hate to measure). If you’re new to adding greens, just put a couple of leaves – you won’t even taste them 🙂
Blend until smooth and enjoy!
How do you like to eat cherries?
Until next time, cheers!
