Berry Cherry Smoothie

Oh smoothies, how I’ve missed you.

I’ve been afraid to dip my toes back into the smoothie waters for fear that The Babe would become a smoothie-loving-monster.

Turns out that fear was totally legit.

I mean, she is my child.

And I am a smoothie-loving-mama. The more fruit, color, and flavor the better.

THIS smoothie with it’s delicious strawberries and decadent cherries is perfection.

I also got my paws on a box of maple water from Trader Joe’s.

They say it’s supposed to be as hydrating as coconut water with a nice hint of mapley sweetness. I was game to try it.

The verdict? Perfect for smoothies.

If you don’t have maple water, coconut water or plain old tap water will work just fine.

You could also use milk (almond, coconut, cow), though I’ve been playing around with using water instead. Sometimes I find that the almond milk dulls the flavor of the fruits a bit.

In the end, the combination of cherries and strawberries with the subtle sweetness of the maple water and a bit of lime juice to balance it all out was a winner. One that I’ll be making again and again this summer.

And The Babe?

She sucked it down in two seconds flat.
