This super healthy Cherry Berry Slush recipe was received from my best friend’s little daughter. I was video calling my friend and found that her little daughter Ipsa was making herself a drink in the kitchen. Soon she came to the room, sipping her beverage where her mom was busy talking to me. Her drink looked fancy and very tempting. I offered her if she could send me her recipe then I will publish it on my NutriPledge blog. So here you go.
Wash fruits thoroughly. Take out the seeds from cherries. Then through in a blender, add ice cubes and blend until smooth. Enjoy and drink with confidence!
*Any blender of your choice should work in this recipe!
