How was your Labor Day?  Mine was great, but I need some serious help over here.  We’re weeks away from fall and I’m in denial about it.  

I have no idea why it’s so hard for me to let go of summer this year!

Maybe it’s because I’ve been obsessed with cherries. I’ve been making my cherry overnight oats like mad, and this Pineapple Cherry Smoothie has been on repeat!

My youngest son proclaimed it the best smoothie I ever made, and I had to agree that it has a place up at the top of my list too.

One major reason is that it tastes just like a Big Stick Popsicle, which totally takes me back to my childhood. 🙂

I was reminiscing about the old days when the idea for this smoothie popped in my head.  The Big Stick Popsicle has cherry, pineapple and orange flavors, and I figured I had to give it a whirl.

I’m so glad I did!

Recipe ingredients

You only need 3 ingredients for this cherry smoothie recipe:

  • Cherries. Use fresh or frozen.
  • Pineapple. Use fresh or frozen.
  • Orange juice. For best results, use fresh orange juice as it’s unsweetened and has a fresher flavor.

How to make this recipe

This cherry smoothie is extremely easy to make. If using fresh, pit them up to a few days in advance to save time.

Pro tip:  If all of your fruit is frozen, you’ll need another 1/2 cup of liquid.  You can use more orange juice, or if you’d like to keep sugar to a minimum, use water or coconut water.  If all of your fruit is fresh, you’ll need to use at least another 1/2 cup of ice.

  1. Place everything in the blender (liquid first, followed by the fruit).
  2. Blend until smooth, adding more liquid or ice as needed.
