Who doesn’t love a Cherry Bakewell? If you adore the taste but want something a little more health-conscious, our Mulberry & Cherry Bakewell Smoothie is an absolute winner. With all of the sweet flavour of the well-loved tart thanks to the naturally sugary dates and delicious cherries (plus an amazing amaretto hum from the almond butter), you can wave goodbye to your cravings and say hello to a smoothie that tastes too good to be… well, good! Added goodness comes from our Mulberry Superfood Powder which boasts one heck of a nutrition label – click here to read all about the benefits of mulberries or here to see our Very Mulberry Smoothie recipe.
1. First, pop the milk of your choice and your frozen cherries into the blender and whizz until properly blended
2. Add the tablespoons of Mulberry Superfood Powder, manuka honey and almond butter to the cherry milk
3. Blast for a further twenty to thirty seconds, or until your smoothie looks thick and creamy. Throw the dates in and whizz those up into the mixture, also
Tip: Adding actual almonds in Step 2 will give your smoothie a lovely texture, and a capful of vanilla essence will add to the ‘Cherry Bakewell’ taste. If you’re over 18, a tiny splash of Amaretto liqueur will turn this recipe into a decadent and ‘grown up’ smoothie. Enjoy!
