Cherry Vanilla Almond Smoothie Recipe

This sweet, summery, and simple vegan smoothie is packed with fruit, nuts, and not much else, but it could definitely pass for dessert. My nine-year-old taste tester said, "I could drink this all day." And I might just let her.


  • 2 cups frozen pitted cherries
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 pitted Medjool date
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Combine all ingredients in blender and blend until completely smooth. Serve immediately.

    Recipe Notes

  • I'm no proponent of single-purpose kitchen tools, but a decent cherry pitter will really make your life easier if you decide to pit and freeze your own summer bounty. Stem and pit cherries, then freeze on a rimmed baking sheet for at least 12 hours. Frozen cherries from the store with nothing funky added are fine, too. For a good homemade almond milk, I like this recipe.
