A sure sign that spring is here are those glorious cherry trees covered in blossoms! Cherries are packed with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds and go exceptionally well with creamy cashews in this healthy-enough-for-breakfast, but good-enough-to-eat-for-dessert smoothie recipe!

To get super creamy, blendable cashews, soak overnight in a bowlful of water, then strain and add to the mix!
