Raspberry and Cherry Smoothie (Dairy-Free)

2 servings (about 2 cups)

This smoothie recipe combines sweet cherries and plump raspberries with invigorating ginger infusion. Both raspberries and cherries get their distinctive red color from anthocyanins, plant pigments that have strong antioxidant and anti-cancer properties. Also ginger has been shown to possess anti-cancer properties. This smoothie is dairy-free and vegan.

Healthy Raspberry and Cherry Smoothie


  • ¾ cup water
  • 3 teaspoons grated ginger root
  • 90g cherries (about 12 cherries)
  • 100g raspberries (¾ heaping cup)
  • ½ cup crushed ice


  • In a teapot, pour boiling water over the grated ginger and let steep for 8-10 minutes. Cool the infusion. While the infusion is cooling, halve the cherries and remove the stones.
  • In a blender or food processor, blend the cooled ginger root infusion, the pitted cherries, and the raspberries until smooth.
  • Add the crushed ice and mix again. Pour into into small glasses, and serve with quirky eco-straws made of stainless steel, borosilicate glass, or bamboo.
