Cherry Cheesecake Smoothie (GAPS, SCD, Paleo, Gluten Free, Dairy Free)

Hi everyone! I hope your week is off to a great start. And if it's not, don't worry I have a delicious recipe to share with you today that is bound to cheer you up. 

And in keeping with the cherry theme that I started last week I am posting a smoothie recipe that I originally developed last year. Yep this one has been collecting dust for over a year! What a bad blogger I am. Because you see, when I finally remembered it, cherry season was more than over so I was forced to put this one back in the vault to wait... And wait...

And guess what? It's cherry season again which means I can finally share this one with you! And trust me this is a good one. You will want to try it. Like now. Besides cherries, which are loaded with antioxidants, this smoothie also contains cinnamon, grassfed gelatin (which we all know is a superfood right? If not you need to read this post), and healthy fats like cashew butter and coconut butter. Are your taste buds getting excited? I hope so!

So you know what can be annoying? Computers. I mean I love them, but sometimes also hate them. Why am I whining about computers do you ask? Because mine is currently in for repairs which means I am without it. Yep, the trackpad on my laptop just up and quit. And that little piece of equipment is rather vital it turns out. So for 3-5 days I am computer-less. And I have to admit it's rather sad how dependent I am on that little guy. My school work, blogging activities and even some of my social life all depend on it. I am feeling a little lost without it. Sad but true. So you will have to forgive me if my social media is a little neglected this week. I will get back to you eventually don't you worry. To be honest it's probably good for me to take a little break from the computer. I honestly can't remember the last time I went an entire day without using it. Can you? I am using this time as an excuse to catch up on some reading, cooking, workouts and spending time with friends. When I look at it that way it actually sounds pretty positive. 

And on that note I think I will leave it there for today. But don't forget to visit my social media pages: InstagramFacebookPinterest and  Twitter.

Happy eating everyone!
