Frozen Cherries... How I Love Them!

After months and months of searching local stores, I finally found these lovely frozen cherries!  I saw so many posts about them from bloggers in one of my Facebook groups...  extolling their perfect texture and delicious taste, that I just had to have them...  oh yeah, who SAYS bloggers have no power to influence?

Well, I did finally find them, at my local Costco, and I have been eating them by the bagful.  They are grown in my own province and I  think I  like them even better than fresh cherries.  They are already washed and pitted and stemmed and ready to eat.   Mmmmm.




I often eat them right out of the bag, still frozen!  Or I might plop a few in a bowlful of yogurt for an afternoon snack.  They freeze the yogurt that sticks to them... it takes forever to eat!




I also like them on a heaping bowlful of yogurt mixed with protein powder... vanilla or chocolate... either is delicious!  Just look at the juice that comes as the cherries start to thaw.






But one of my favorite ways to enjoy them is in a protein shake... a smoothie...  they are great with vanilla or chocolate.  The color... the taste... amazing!  And so very simple and quick to put together. I often have one for breakfast these hot Summery mornings.






Vanilla or Chocolate Cherry Smoothie for one:

  • 1 cup frozen cherries
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 1 scoop protein powder of choice
  1. Blend till thick and creamy.
  2. Pour into glass and enjoy!



Are you a frozen cherries fan too?  What is your favorite way to eat them?

  14. I love cherries but have never found frozen ones! I sometimes buy frozen berry mixes for addition to crumbles and pies (or just stewed apple). Would love frozen cherries - will see if I can hunt some out... :)
