With summer fast approaching, and the weather heating up I’m finding I’m not wanting my normal post-run smoothie, which is milk based.
Having some leftover mango nectar while testing out an energy gel, I decided to also experiment with a juice based smoothie.
Then I thought about Boost Juice and was inspired by a tropical creation of pineapple and coconut.
Into the fridge, I go only to discover that the pineapple was sad. The strawberries even sadder.
My only alternative was the frozen fruit I keep in the freezer.
That’s when I saw the frozen cherries and saw that there was hope.
The result was exactly what I needed & wanted. Fresh and satisfying.

When the kids discovered I had made this, they, of course, wanted one too. Needless to say, they thoroughly enjoyed the simplicity of it.
Quite refreshing after a long run on a hot and humid day.
Next time I shall experiment with kiwi fruit and coconut water, maybe even tailwind!
