Cherries are my absolute favorite fruit and they are only in season for such a short time! There are so many health benefits to cherries so try adding them to smoothies, muffins, granola, or my Cherry Chocolate Chip Ice Cream! The secret to this super creamy ice cream is avocado, but you would never know it’s in there. Plus no ice cream maker required!
Health benefits of cherries
Cherries are loaded with antioxidants and anti-cancer fighting properties. They also help fight inflammation in the body and can help with weight loss. Did you know that tart cherries are a natural pain reliever, especially for arthritic pain? They can also help with insomnia because they contain natural melatonin. Try an 8-ounce glass of tart cherry juice an hour before bedtime.
Cherries are also high in potassium which makes them a great food to help relieve high blood pressure. Need any more excuses to eat more cherries?
