Very Cherry Smoothie

Very Cherry Smoothie

I am a savory breakfast person through and through.

I’ll easily take a breakfast burrito or eggy tofu and toast over maple syrup drenched pancakes most days. I want my breakfast to come with a side of avocado or salsa, not topped with powdered sugar.

However, there are some days in the summer months when it’s hot and muggy that a fruit smoothie is the perfect way to start the day. It’s filling without being heavy, easy to take on the road, or sip while I check my email and read new blog posts.
