Cherry Power Smoothie

Back when we started eating healthier last year, I remember Babe bringing home cherry concentrate. He used it a few times and then I finished it because it wasn’t the right kind. In order to reap all the benefits from having tart cherry concentrate in a smoothie it should be organic and have no additives. The one he bought had additives. I don’t remember it getting bought again, possibly because he could not find the right one in our closest supermarket.

Organic Tart Cherry Juice has no added sugar, gluten, BPA or fat. The last claim is an odd one to me, because I would never have thought of cherries as containing fat, but ok. Adding tart cherry can help aid sleep, speed up muscle recovery, help fight heart disease, and neutralize harmful oxidants. We use it in smoothies, but really you can use it anywhere. You can add it to baking, yogurt, ice cream, sun tea… Wherever you think a touch of cherry would be good! In order to get the benefits of one serving (2 tablespoons) of Organic Tart Cherry by eating cherries, you would need to eat at least 80 cherries!

Smoothies aren’t recommended on the Whole30, but they aren’t really banned either. The creators of Whole30 want you to eat your calories, not drink them. I was drinking a smoothie every day for lunch before my Whole30 began, and have only had a few since I started. A main reason I haven’t had smoothies this month is I used them for mid day protein boosts, and protein powder is banned on Whole30 for having dairy and hidden sugars in them. Once this month is up I will return to my smoothies, and this Organic Tart Cherry concentrate will be waiting!
