Cherry Pie Smoothie.

This Cherry Pie Smoothie is a healthy breakfast version of my favorite summer dessert, combining frozen tart cherries, almond milk, oats, greens, and more.

It has been a hot minute since I posted a new smoothie recipe. Smoothies are still a frequent breakfast staple in this house, in-between versions of overnight oats. One of my favorite smoothie concoctions for summer is a Green Peach Smoothie, which reminds me of peach pie because of the cinnamon + vanilla flavors. I have been thinking about how to make another summery pie into an acceptable form of breakfast, and I think this is it!

Tart cherries are the best summer treat, especially if they come from Door County in Wisconsin. I can’t wait to head up there later this summer, but until then this recipe will have to do. This smoothie also includes rolled oats to give it extra staying power for a busy morning.

Makes 2 smoothies

3 handfuls kale or spinach greens
2 bananas
2 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk

1/2 cup rolled oats

I leave you with the peony bush in my yard – while taking smoothie photos this morning, I noticed they are so close to fully blooming. Can’t wait!

  • Yum yum! Thanks for sharing–can't wait to give this one a try! Peonies are one of my very favorite summer flowers. Love having cut peonies in the house because it fills the house with that lovely fragrance! Enjoy yours when they finally pop!

  • Both your cherry pie and mention of your peach smoothie has craving one or both for my breakfast tomorrow! I grew up in Ames, then lived in Iowa City before moving to Indiana 🙂 I think Iowa was a fabulous spot to grow up!
