This is a great morning smoothie with protein to keep you going!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup fresh cherries, halved and pitted
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1 scoop protein powder (I use soy)
  • 1 -2 tablespoon wheat germ
  • 2 tablespoons honey (or to taste)
  • 5 -6 ice cubes


  1. If you're not used to wheat germ try 1 tbsp first. If you really like wheat germ you can increase amount for added fibre and nutrition content.
  2. Put all ingredients in blender and blend to desired consistency.
  3. If it's thicker than you like add additional orange juice a little at a time. If it's thinner than you like add additional ice cubes.
  4. If you use frozen cherries instead you may need less ice cubes.

It's a little tart but the honey adds a nice sweetness and the orange juice always mixes well with cherries. I'm glad I tried this. I might throw in some sunflower seeds next time.

I used frozen cherries and only one teaspoon of wheat germ. My DD did enjoy this smoothie and the honey evens out the "tang" of the orange juice and cherries.
