Spinberry Cherry Smoothie

1 black plum, skin on, pitted
1/2 cup pitted, fresh cherries
1 tbl chia seeds
3 ice cubes
1/2 cup water
Blend and enjoy!
Just a note- I recently received the greatest gift of any serious cook
or juicers dreams...a vitamix! I went big and got the professional
series and man this thing does not joke around. Because of the serious
horsepower, I don't have to peel any of my fruit (except with the
obvious exceptions of bananas, pineapple etc.) thus I retain all of the
rich vitamins that are stored in the skins. I also do not have to add
very much liquid. You may have to adjust the recipes to fit your
blenders power and your preference for thick or thin juices.
If you find smoothies with greens in them hard to get down,
freeze all of the fruit before blending it. I find that the colder the
smoothie, the better it tastes.
