Strawberry Cherry Smoothies

These strawberry Cherry Smoothies are easy, healthy and delicious. Talk about a pick-me-up! @NatashasKitchen

This strawberry cherry smoothie is delicious and it’s quite good for you! Talk about a pick-me-up! I tested this recipe during the cooler months with frozen cherries, stored from the previous cherry season and it was so good! I then waited and waited and waited for cherry season to share it with you. I’m not very good at keeping recipes a secret. It’s a painful process for me.

Somehow it didn’t hit me that this cherry smoothie can be made year round since you can use fresh or frozen cherries… Duh. More like D’oh!  At least the pictures look nice with the fresh cherries everywhere. If you have an abundance of fresh cherries, consider pitting and freezing them for winter smoothies. I hope you all enjoy this strawberry cherry smoothie recipe!

Ingredients for Strawberry Cherry Smoothies:

1 cup water
1 orange, peeled and separated into wedges
1 banana, peeled and quartered
1 Tbsp chia seeds
1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen strawberries, hulled
1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen sweet red cherries, pitted
Drizzle of honey or agave nectar, to taste, if desired

Strawberry Cherry Smoothie

How To Make Strawberry Cherry Smoothies:

1. Combine all of the ingredients in an electric blender. Add ingredients in the order they are listed. As a rule of thumb, you want to add the liquid first and the frozen last and everything else goes in between. Blend until smooth.

2. If you like your smoothies a little sweeter, you can drizzle in your favorite sweetener such as honey or agave nectar to taste, then pulse in blender until well incorporated. Enjoy!

Note: Either strawberries or cherries could be frozen. If you like your smoothies chilled, it’s best to have at least one frozen fruit.

    This is really good! I bought some cherries and was looking up your recipes of what I could make with cherries and I found this smoothie, so I quickly froze some cherries.

    This smoothie is like OrangJulius quality! Thank you! Reply

      Hi Christine, I think that would be ok, but I would recommend covering it and quickly re-blending just before serving because smoothies can separate if you let them sit too long. Reply

    can you freeze after you make them for next day? Reply

      Hi Helen, I think the ingredients can be portioned and frozen. Is that what you meant? If you try to freeze it after blending, it would be difficult to thaw although I think you could do it that way also. Reply

    What course could you replace cherries? Thanks Reply

      Yes you could replace them with more strawberries or pretty much any kind of berry. Pineapple would work also. Reply

    Hi Natasha, is there anything to replace oranges as they are not in season. Thanks!!😉😉 Reply

      Hi Ana, clementines would work really well. You could also try a pear plus a little orange juice if it’s too thick to blend (since oranges are juicier than pears). Reply

    This was great! I added some frozen cranberries for a little tart kick and it made it a gorgeous shade of red. I just love eating food that looks as good as it tastes. Thanks for the inspiration! Reply

      I absolutely love the idea of adding cranberries; how festive and a little tartness would be perfect in this! Thanks for the tip! 🙂 Reply

    Your Smoothie looks delicious. I was wondering what substitute could I use for the Banana as I can’t eat them. Or can I just leave it out?

    Thanks for your recipie though. I’m sure those in my family that can have the Banana will love it. Reply

    • Natasha

      You could just leave them out. It will have a slightly more tart taste to it since the banana kind of mellows the flavors of the smoothie, but it will still taste good even if it’s “zippy” as my son puts it 🙂 Reply

    What a gorgeous smoothie, I love the color. This is just what I need for an afternoon snack! Reply

      Laura, thanks for the idea! I’ve been on a roll cooking all day and when that happens, I sometimes forget to even drink water. I get in the zone, I guess ;). Thank you for your nice compliment 🙂 Reply

    Hi Natasha!
    This recipe looks delicious. I was reading over your meet the cook page and it said your a full time blogger now! That’s so exciting! Does that mean you quit your nursing job?

    Thanks for all the wonderful recipes!

      Thank you Zoya! I work 2 days a month right now as a nurse 🙂 I feel like I have to pinch myself to make sure it’s not just a dream. It’s a huge blessing and I’m so thankful 🙂 Reply

    I finally got my Blendtec, thanks to your great reviews and a sale at Costco.com! Too bad we already ate our cherries. Will buy more and make this smoothie asap. And it’s Paleo-approved which is a bonus! Thanks! 🙂 Reply

      Oh I didn’t even realize that! Do you follow the Paleo way? 🙂 I hope you love it! The blender has definitely been a great way to eat more fruits and veggies! Reply

    So I had a bunch of cherries this week and I was thinking of making some smoothies with them – but I ended up just eating them all within the day :). Hard to resist those things. Your smoothies look mouthwatering, I’ll have to try your recipe! Reply

      I agree; a big bowl of shiny, juicy cherries are hard to resist! I’m extra thankful for a good cherry crop this year! Last year it was slim pickings but this year our trees are plastered! Reply

  • I love these photos!!! Stunning! And I can’t wait until cherries start appearing down here so that I can make this smoothie!!

    Can I just tell you that I LOVE how adorably domestic you are?! I love that you pick your own cherries (or maybe they’re from your mom’s garden?) and then freeze them for winter. Jealous beyond belief! Reply

      Lindsey you’re so sweet. Thank you! They are from our trees but my mom has loads too. My husband gets most of the credit for freezing them though! 😉 Reply
