Take a trip down Memory Lane with the nostalgic taste of this Cherry Popsicle Smoothie!

I love smoothies! Even after 12 weeks of nothing but soup and smoothies post jaw surgery, I still love smoothies!

I especially enjoy adding all things green to my smoothies. This smoothie tastes like childhood to me – and I promise that you cannot taste the spinach. Your kids won’t even know it’s in there if you don’t tell them. It’s that good!

It’s super-tasty, really easy, and reminds me of fun Michigan summers with lots and lots of cherries!

Cherry Popsicle (Green) Smoothie Recipe

Simply blend the following ingredients in a blender on high for approximately one minute:

–1 cup apple juice

–1 large handful frozen raspberries (don’t skip this – it’s a key ingredient!)

–1 large handful frozen dark cherries

–2 heaping handfuls of fresh baby spinach

Makes ~ one 20 oz. smoothie

Note: I tend to like my smoothies a bit on the runny side. If you prefer a creamier consistency, add 1/2 frozen banana (optional) and/or use less apple juice. You could also dilute the apple juice with water to reduce the amount of sugar.
