Cherry and Strawberry Yogurt Smoothie

Good news today. I think I'm back in game and I feel much more inspired again. I took a few days off and kept telling myself that I don't have to produce anything beautiful and great every single day! It helped. I have to learn to accept that, but it's working. I want to say a BIG thank you to all of you for your supportive comments on my last post! They mean the world to me and help me keep going! Thank you my foodie friends!

Another good news is, that it is a Food Blogger Connect time this weekend, and I am going to spend wonderful three days with fellow food bloggers and friends, and eat a lot! I am looking forward to seeing everyone there! I think there are still a few tickets left for Saturday, so if you are the "last minutes decision" kind of person, there is still a chance to join us. I'm sure we are all going to have a blast.

I hope you will like my today's recipe, because I didn't cook much this week as I'm home alone gain. I finally got first cherries at the market last week. They were surprisingly very sweet, so I enjoyed them raw, added some in morning yogurt, and the rest I mixed with strawberries, honey, apple juice and homemade yogurt into a smoothie. If you like ice smoothie, put your fruit in the freezer for 2-3 hours before blending. It makes a wonderful refreshing smoothie.
