Cherry Smoothie Recipe For Kids With Banana

Kids love in early summer a cherry smoothie recipe with freshly pitted cherries. It is easy to prepare and is perfect for any time of the day.

In its basic recipe, the cherry drink is a great menu addition to jump-start a kids' day with a healthy and quick breakfast. In between meals, the fruit smoothie becomes a snack. But it also makes a delicious dessert alongside the main meal of the day.

Adding some oats or seeds give the fruit more slow-burning sustenance to stay alert and full of energy for longer. To add variation, choose one of the spices like cinnamon or vanilla essence.

Not sweet enough?

Think about adding one or more pitted dates.

It is in the cooks' hands how much liquid to add, which ultimately makes the drink more or less fluid.
