  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon Ground cinnamon


  • Put all of the ingredients into a blender and whizz until smooth

Expert Tips

  • I recommend serving this smoothie immediately after blending since natural separation of the ingredients does occur after 5-10 minutes (it's still tasty though)
  • When separation occurs the drink can be easily reblended by shaking or stirring vigorously
  • You can make this drink with fresh or frozen cherries. Likewise, the pineapple can be fresh, frozen or tinned
  • For ease of blending, I suggest that only one of these fruits be frozen - either the cherries or the pineapple - not both
  • Assuming that one of the fruits is frozen there is no need to add ice to the blender
  • Check your blender can handle ice if you are adding it to your smoothie


This drink can be stored in the fridge for up to 48 hours. Pour it into a bottle with a screwtop lid and keep refrigerated. It will separate, so shake vigorously before pouring it into a glass - hence the screw top lid.
