Cherry Pie Smoothie

First of all - Hello!

I hope you are having a lovely day so far, if not - why not make a cherry pie smoothie? Hell, even if you're having a good day, that is just as good enough a reason to whip up this luscious smoothie!

When I saw Katrina's "Blueberry Coconut Milk Smoothie", my first reaction was "I need this in my life!" then I realised I didn't have any blueberries at hand....The disappointment! BUT what I did have, is also a well known delicious berry-thing that works well in pies: Cherry! And so off I went first thing in the morning and had this for breakfast.

Cherry Pie Smoothie
(Serves 1)

1 cup light coconut milk, about 200-250ml
1/2 cup fresh cherries, pitted
1 small frozen banana, or 1/2 a large one
2 tbsp oats
3-4 pecans (or cashews, almonds...)
A few drops vanilla extract
A good pinch of cinnamon
A slightly smaller pinch nutmeg
Chopped pecans, granola or crumbled sweet crackers to top with

- You know how the rest goes - pop everything into a blender or use a stick blender and whizz until smooth. Pour into a tall glass (mine was too tall, so I opted for a wine glass - fancy!), and top with the sprinkle of choice. Et voilâ! And that covers two of your five a day, magic!

Aaaaalso, there was a certain mentioning of good news yesterday, was it not? Well let me tell you who handed in her resignation today!
Yours truly, as I will not be working in an office anymore, yay! I've gotten a job in one of the Street kitchens in town, so needless to say - I am pretty excited! I finish up my "old" job next Wednesday, taking a few days off, and then it'll kick off, and I cannot wait!

I hope you are all having a good week so far!

  1. Yum! I love cherry pie, this sounds fabulous, especially in the morning :)

  2. Good thing I have all these ingredients in my house already to make this!

    1. That is great Shikha! The cherries are definitely best this time of the year, so sweet and juicy! I hope you enjoy it :) x

  3. Yuumm!! Jeg elsker moreller/kirsebær, og det gjør seg virkelig i smoothies. Denne høres nydelig ut, perfekt frokost.
    Håper du har hatt en fin torsdag! Klem klem

    1. Takk! Ja, denne ga meg en god start på dagen, og jeg var mett overraskende lenge etterpå, og jeg som trodde smoothier ikke egentlig telte som et måltid, men denne gjorde det altså :D Kan også blande i litt havre for en ekstra fyldig smoothie :)
      Torsdagen min var rolig og fin takk, kokkelerte litt etter jobb, I dag skal jeg se om jeg kommer meg bort i svømmehallen etter skiftet :) Gooood helg Ragnhild! xx
