This smoothie is quite a sharp flavour, with a creamy, smooth texture. The mix of the flavours and feelings makes this a sure-fire hit, and a great way to wake yourself up in the morning. You can also use it as in Ice Cream sauce if you add less yoghurt, and pour it over the top of Vanilla Ice cream for a lovely treat, even more so if you warm it up slightly first – just thirty seconds in a microwave is all that’s needed.
250g bottled, stoned Morello Cherries
150ml Greek Yoghurt
Sugar (to taste)
1. Put the Morello cherries, with their liquid into a blender with the yoghurt and process until smooth.
2. Add as much sugar if wanted – start by tasting as it is, then adding small amounts at a time. It’s easier to put more sugar in, than to add more Cherries!
3. Pour and Serve
