Cherry Banana Ginger Smoothie (SCD Friendly)

There is nothing like the sweet taste of cherries.  Such a quintessential summer fruit (next to my beloved strawberries of course).  I made this lovely smoothie one morning and it was quite satisfying.  The cherries pair well with the creamy bananas and of course I always throw in some ginger.  Ginger is a big part of my healing regimen.  It’s a wonderful natural anti-inflammatory.  
Ingredients:
-1 cup nut milk, I used homemade walnut milk
-1 cup frozen bananas (see notes on how to freeze your own)
-1 cup seeded fresh cherries 
-0.2 or 0.3 ounces of ginger (I like my smoothie with some bite, so I go with around .3 to .4 ounces)

How To:
1.  Blend above ingredients, serve immediately.  If you like a super cold and slushy smoothie, add ice.  This is a nice thick, smooth, cool drink (this is how I prefer my smoothies – not overly slushy).  

Notes:
*Go green and make your own frozen bananas, slice up 4 or 5 ripe bananas (preferably ripe with freckles).  Place on a non stick surface and freeze for 4-6 hours. Transfer banana slices to glass container and store in freezer.  Use as needed.
