Acai Banana Cherry Smoothie

Yield: 1 Serving

This smoothie is a delicious blend of acai, banana and black cherry juice. When frozen, bananas give a wonderful creamy texture to smoothies. All ingredients in this smoothie are excellent for combating stress.


10 oz pure black cherry juice
1 ea banana, frozen
1ea Sambazon Pure Acai frozen smoothie pack
1 tbs flax oil
1 tsp spirulina or unflavoured mixed green food powder
1 serving protein powder of choice


To freeze your banana, simply peel, wrap in cellophane, and leave in the freezer overnight.

Place all ingredients in a blender and run on high speed until smooth.

For regular blenders you will need to break up the banana and frozen smoothie pack. If necessary, you may wish to thaw the acai pack before using. For the best creamy texture however, the banana should be frozen.

If you own a Vita-Mix, you will have no problem with the load, and do not even have to break up the smoothie pack. Simply walk the speed up to 10, switch to high, and press the frozen ingredients into the blades using the tamper.

Both my husband and I really enjoy the rich taste of this smoothie. I used Cool Hemp unflavoured protein powder.
