Banana Cherry Smoothie

Trying another smoothie idea. There is lots of room to make changes or additions. For example, you can add ice cubes if you like a thicker (and colder) smoothie. You can also easily add flax seeds or chia seeds.

Ingredients:
¾ cup organic plain yogurt, you can also use vanilla yogurt
1 banana, remember the riper the banana the sweeter it will be
1½ cups frozen dark sweet cherries (I only had dark tart cherries, so I added about 1 tablespoon honey)

Preparation:
Add all ingredients to the blender and blend until desired consistency.
Superyummy and superhealthy. Cannot have a better way to start the day (or can even be made for a snack during the day!)

Enjoy =)
