THE CHERRY CONNECTOR

Author: Lily Mazzarella

I formulated this luscious smoothie for a specific reason: I’ve been healing from a chronic arm/shoulder injury for several years and am finally building back strength (woo hoo!) and becoming more active in physical therapy. Aware that an injury could set me back, I’m careful to support my tissues with the nutrients they need to recover. Research has shown that cherries reduce post-exercise fatigue, and that collagen prevents sports injury—a winning combination. Flavonoids from cherries support cross-linking of collagen fibers (what all our connective tissue is made of!). Protein, plant-based omega 3’s, and other healthy fats help reduce post-workout inflammation and restore depleted energy reserves.

* If you don’t have a juicer, you can make these in a Vitamix & enjoy the extra fiber or allow solids to settle and drink!
