Fit Fridays #2 // Cherry Pie Smoothie Recipe

I'm a bad person you all know how awful I am at keeping up with my weekly or fortnightly posts! To be fair last week I was a little bit hung over and didn't fancy sitting on my laptop haha. Also I'm not going to lie but I took all of last week of exercise wise and I've missed one day this week so I can't really give any update on how my body is doing as I kinda suck at exercising when I'm busy or ill. I have however lost 2lb I'm not entirely sure how or where from but I've lost it, I'm not sure how I feel about that since my aim is to tone up and get fit not lose more weight plus it's probably where I've lost muscle to fat hahaha. Never mind. Anyway this week I'm sharing with you a super yummy smoothie recipe.

I love a good fruit smoothie for breakfast, it's great if you're in a rush since you can just chuck it all in your blender whilst you finish getting ready then pour it into a cup to go and you're sorted! This is one of my favourite smoothies it's just so yummy and filling!
For the Cherry Pie Smoothie you need:
- 3/4 cup of Almond Milk
- 1/2 cup of Cherry Juice (Fresh stuff, no added sugar or anything!)
- 1 cup of Frozen Cherries
- 1/2 cup Frozen Blueberries
- 1/4 cup Frozen Cranberries
- 1 tsp of Cinnamon
- 2 tbsp of Oats

Pop all of these into your blender, blend until it's all smooth and your mix looks pretty liquidy and then serve and enjoy. You could if you wanted to be naughty top this with cream and a cherry but it's meant to be a sort of healthy breakfast. I usually make a smoothie on a morning when I get up or just after I've finished a work out and it keeps me full until dinner time so it's perfect for people who don't have time for a proper breakfast or lunch! If you don't have frozen fruit you can always use fresh it's up to you!

What's your opinion on breakfast smoothies?
