Hi there! I’m back again. But why wouldn’t I be? This is my site, after all. Anyway, I’m here because I just made some smoothies, and they were tasty, so I thought I would share the recipe with you.
When I lived in California I was a big fan of Jamba Juice. My favorite smoothie was the Berry Lime Sublime. Only I hate raspberry seeds so I always substituted cherries for the raspberries. Anywho today’s recipe is sort of an homage to that drink, with a little twist. It is especially tangy and refreshing, so it will help to remind you that soon enough spring and summer will be here.
OK. Enough talk here’s the recipe:
Super Sublime Lime Smoothie (yields four 8oz. servings)
1 cup frozen dark sweet cherries
1/2 cup frozen strawberries
1/2 cup frozen pineapple chunks
1 cup lime sherbet
1/4- 1/3 cup fresh lime juice (juice of 2 limes)
1/4 fresh orange or tangerine juice
1/2 -3/4 cup water
2 tsp. sugar (optional)
Combine the lime and orange juices in your blender. Add in about 1/4 cup of water and the frozen cherries. Blend until smooth. Add frozen strawberries to blender and blend, adding additional water if needed. Add frozen pineapple chunks and repeat. Once all of the fruit has been blended, add sherbet and final 1/4 cup of water. Sugar can be dissolved into the final addition of water if you find that your fruit mixture is too tart. Blend until the sherbet is well incorporated, divide between 4 glasses, and serve.
These were so tasty, that we didn’t want to stop drinking them to take pictures, but I’ve included a picture of my son’s “why no more smoothie in my mouth?” face for reference. Enjoy!
