Kick start your day with a good breakfast

Dark Sweet Cherry Smoothie

on October 16, 2013

Going into Game Four of the ALCS, the Tigers need a lot of love and support.


This morning I lift my cherry smoothie to the talents and will-to-win of Prince Fielder, Justin Verlander, Miguel Cabrera, Torii Hunter, Jim Leyland, and the whole streak (just learned that’s the name for a group of tigers).  They can do it, if the wind’s right and their fans roar load enough.

Today’s smoothie is made with two fresh-squeezed oranges, two TBSP vanilla yogurt, a dozen dark sweet cherries, and a good pinch of ginger. When I asked the Google gods whether cherry and orange flavors go together, I found this terrific resource: Flavor Profiles That Pair Well in Recipes. I can’t tell you how often I’ll be using this. Thank you, NouveauRaw.com.

Go, Tigers!
