Coffee Smoothie with Fresh Cherries

Welcome to my Coffee Smoothie with Fresh Cherries Recipe. Bursting with fresh fruit flavor and zinging with coffee, this smoothie is my favorite way to wake up. Any day.

Recipe for Coffee Smoothie with Fresh Cherries

Cherries and coffee go together like brown sugar and raisins, like potatoes and sour cream, like yogurt and honey. They just work.

When I’m in the mood for a coffee smoothie, which happens often seeing as how I require caffeine but live in Florida and thus crave things that keep me cool, I throw coffee and cherries into the blender with some other smoothie essentials and make myself a drink that delivers a flavor whallop and gets me jittery.

This coffee smoothie is a great summer afternoon pick-me-up that uses my favorite luscious seasonal fruit.
