Vegan Cherry Berry Coconut Smoothie Recipe

If you know me, you know that I absolutely love bananas. I put them in practically everything that I eat and bake (as it is an amazing binding agent). The biggest part about making smoothies for me (aside from always including bananas) is that I only use natural ingredients and stay far away from any artificial sweeteners. The juices I used for this recipe are the R.W Knudsen brand of Organic Just Tart Cherry Juice and the Organic Just Cranberry Juice. I love using these juices in my smoothies because it adds an element of sweetness without adding any artificial sugar. This smoothie is one of my absolute favorites, I drink it as a pre-workout meal as it gives me loads of natural energy to get me through my workout.

I picked up these juices on my recent Target run this week. Do you guys ever go to Target for like one thing and end up leaving the store with a million new fun things? Because I walked in with 5 things on my shopping list and walked out with a cart full of goodies that I didn’t know I needed but now that I can’t live without...like my new Aqua Coffee cup that makes me feel like a mermaid. ;)

Instructions:

1. Take all of the ingredients (except for the refrigerated coconut milk) and combine in a blender!

2. Add ice if needed.

3. Add the coconut milk and blend! Now that you have a smooth smoothie (get it?) Pour it into a glass and enjoy!

If you like your smoothie more on the tart side then this recipe is perfect for you! If you like your smoothies on the sweeter side then add a little bit of stevia. The coconut in this recipe makes this smoothie so creamy, and the combination of the cherry and cranberry flavors leaves your taste buds wanting more.

Using juices in smoothies is a great way to make them way more flavorful. These juices are also perfect to enjoy on the go! When I am teaching at the studio all day I always bring some juices to sip on in between classes! However, make sure you choose ones that are all natural with minimal ingredients. What I love the most about these juices is that they only use one fruit for their juice, so nothing is being added or mixed in your juice.  Fruit juice should taste like fruit not like a candy version of your fruit. The Organic Just Tart Cherry Juice and the Organic Just Cranberry Juice are Non-GMO verified, USDA Organic, contain no artificial flavors or preservatives, made of all natural ingredients and are unsweetened!!!!! This is awesome because it insures that you get the maximum flavor you want in your smoothies so you can enjoy a guilt free fruit juice that makes you feel as good as the the juice looks.

As a conscious consumer I know you all know how important it is to look into the companies that you are purchasing from and making sure that everything is sourced naturally and cruelty free. So I did a little research into the juice company just for you guys. Fun facts are fun right? For example, did you know that R.W. Knudsen began bottling organic fruit juices in 1961? Well they did! Did you also know that he was originally only making these amazing juices for his family only and simply wanted them to have the best quality of juice? Adorable! Last one (maybe) did you also know that right now the company only partners with growers that share the same drive that Knudsen had all those years ago? Well they do!
