While cherries are around, freeze some on a cookie sheet and when they're solid, put them in a plastic bag for this great "cooler". Summer is coming, what more could you want than a wonderfully refreshing fruit cooler when the weather is hot? Cherries are so healthy and tasty ... prepare for when they're not here! This cooler is good with most any fruit - especially berries!!!
1 dozen (more or less) frozen cherries
1 banana, peeled
milk – your choice of skim, 1%, 2%, or whole … or evaporated skim
2 or 3 ice cubes
Dig out that blender that’s been sitting in your cupboard for awhile, and leave it on the counter – you’re going to want more of these!
Place the cherries and the banana in the blender, pulse till it’s the consistency you like. Add a bit of milk, again – to the thickness you enjoy – add a couple of ice cubes and pulse briefly. Drink to your heart’s content, and make another one!
