A recipe for jet lag – cherry coco smoothie

 (FYI:  There’s still time to CLICK, comment & win a “red hot” traveler’s kit!)   

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

  1. Coconut water is now becoming available in the U.S. Very tasty and high in potassium and electrolytes (more than sports drinks).
