Original recipe yields 3 servings
An unfortunate drawback of this recipe is that most kitchens, unless you've made a point of specifically shopping for the ingredients for this recipe, probably don't have cherry juice, vanilla yogurt, raspberries and red grapes all at the ready to make this smoothie - except for me on this particular occasion and only because I had recently made a major grocery shopping trip. I say unfortunate because Hubs, who really enjoys his weekend smoothies, says this is probably one of the best he's ever had. The recipe, then, is rather limiting. He said ideally he'd have liked it a little thicker but I don't know how you'd do that without significantly altering the taste. Except for reducing the sugar by half, which proved to be a good call, I made this exactly as written. While you do taste the cherry, this is still predominantly raspberry, but the two flavors meld to create something uniquely delicious. This is NOT your same ol,' same ol' berry smoothie. Another interesting observation is that I've just noticed this supposedly is three servings, which I'm sure for most "normal" people it is. But Hubs drank the whole thing, lickety-split. If you're lucky enough to have all these not-so-common ingredients on hand, gather them up and make this. If not, put them on your grocery list!
My 8 year old and I both loved this! I'll be making it again for sure.
Fantastic!! My family enjoyed it after adding 2 cups of water.
