Cherry lime smoothie recipe

Sweet and tart treat.

Healthy smoothie that tastes delicious and will cool you down on a hot summer day. The mixture can also be poured into popsicle molds to enjoy with the entire family.

Serves 1


  • 1 cup frozen cherries
  • 1 teaspoon lime zest
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 2 large pitted medjool dates
  • ½ cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ¼ - ½ cup dairy free milk, plus more as needed
  • ½ cup ice


Soak pitted dates in 1 cup of very warm water for at least 5 minutes. This helps soften them for better blending.

While the dates are soaking, measure remaining ingredients.

Pull the dates out of the water and discard water.

Add all ingredients to a high-powered blender. Blend until smooth, adding more milk to thin, if necessary.

Pour into a glass and enjoy.
