This Cherry Pie Smoothie is a healthy breakfast version of my favorite summer dessert, combining frozen tart cherries, almond milk, oats, greens, and more.
It has been a hot minute since I posted a new smoothie recipe. Smoothies are still a frequent breakfast staple in this house, in-between versions of overnight oats. One of my favorite smoothie concoctions for summer is a Green Peach Smoothie, which reminds me of peach pie because of the cinnamon + vanilla flavors. I have been thinking about how to make another summery pie into an acceptable form of breakfast, and I think this is it!
Tart cherries are the best summer treat, especially if they come from Door County in Wisconsin. I can't wait to head up there later this summer, but until then this recipe will have to do. This smoothie also includes rolled oats to give it extra staying power for a busy morning.

I leave you with the peony bush in my yard - while taking smoothie photos this morning, I noticed they are so close to fully blooming. Can't wait!
