Ingredients
  

  • 16 oz cherries use one bag frozen or 16oz pitted if fresh

Instructions
 

  • If using frozen cherries, take bag out of freezer 10-30 minutes before you start.
  • Toss the defrosted cherries into a high speed blender
  • Blend until smooth.
  • Freeze into cubes or store in a jar in the fridge. This puree can stay in the fridge for 5 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.

Notes

Frozen cherries are the easiest in this recipe, but you can use fresh as well if you have an abundance of cherries.  Simple take the pits out of the cherries and toss them into the blender.  If using fresh cherries, you may want to let them puree a little longer then if you were using frozen ones, to make sure the skins get completely pureed as well.
