Earlier this week I wrote about melatonin and how it helps cure jet lag. Tart cherries are a natural form of melatonin. This got me thinking about recipes containing cherries. I’m a terrible cook. I have zero creativity in the kitchen. So I decided to contact an expert for help. Who better to ask than Robyn, an international flight attendant with a passion for health and raw food and the author of the fantastic blog Girl on Raw? Two days later Robyn emailed me her latest creation – a cherry coco smoothie recipe. (Thanks Robyn!)
Cherry Coco Smoothie Ingredients:
1 Young Thai Coconut Water and Meat (view How To Open a Thai Coconut Video here)
1 ½ cups of Frozen Organic Cherries
2 Frozen Bananas
Juice of 1 Lime
1 T of Agave/Maple Syrup
Pinch of Salt
Blend all ingredients on high in a high-speed blender and serve with a cherry on top!
Serves 3 – 4
