Instructions

  1. Add cherries, ice, yogurt, apple, flaxseed meal, carrot, coconut water, and cinnamon to pitcher of high-speed electric blender (one suitable for crushing ice and handling firm textures).
  2. Using a long-handle wooden spoon, push ingredients firmly down into pitcher.
  3. Blend on high (or use “smoothie” option, if applicable) for approximately 1 minute, or until pre-set time has expired. (If necessary, stop machine intermittently to scrape down sides or press ingredients down to remove any air pockets that might impede blending.)
  4. Pour into glasses and serve immediately.
