This cherry and strawberry mint smoothie recipe makes a refreshingly cool minty treat that awaits you. The delightful blend of strawberries, mint and cherries makes this a beverage fit for any season. It’s also most pleasant when sipping under a shady tree in the spring.
For the most flavorful taste, use cherries that are as fresh as possible. Pit the cherries and freeze them overnight, being extremely careful not to bruise them. The cherries should be dark in color, firm and with no bruised areas. To pit them, gently run a pairing knife around the cherry, being careful not to let the blade touch the cherry seed. Next, gently peel the pulp away from the seed.
The strawberries should also be fresh, with the stems completely removed. Use the reddest areas of the strawberries, while discarding the white sections. The white sections can impart a somewhat bitter taste that some will find distasteful.
A Few Super Strawberry Smoothie Tips!
Blending is an important key if you wish to make the creamiest strawberry mint smoothie possible. When blending your ingredients, you should always take care to blend them on a medium speed until all of the fruit is blended well. You can then increase the speed to high and blend until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
You can serve your smoothie in a chilled glass, or tumbler if you want to enjoy your smoothie on the go. If serving guests, then chilled wine glasses are a fabulous way to serve such a tantalizing beverage. Be sure to serve with a sprig of mint and a strawberry slice as garnish.
Sometimes smoothies can be too thick to drink from a straw. If this happens to you, then you can either allow the smoothie to melt a bit, or you could instead use large smoothies straws that are created specifically for smoothies.
