Sour Cherry Smoothie Recipe

Sour (or tart) cherries don’t stay fresh very long so freeze some to enjoy in winter. This is a great smoothie for avid exercisers because this high antioxidant tart cherry juice can decrease muscle aches. Blend this smoothie up after a workout to rehydrate and reduce exercise-induced free radicals which can lead to painful inflammation.

  • 1 cup frozen sour cherries
