Make a vegan version of the viral Erewhon sweet cherry smoothie at home for a fraction of the price! With cherries, pineapple, and avocado, it's a sweet, creamy smoothie with a hint of tartness. This smoothie was developed in conjunction with Sofia Richie.

The original recipe calls for colostrum, definitely not into that, so it's clearly left out here.

Ingredient Notes and Substitutions

  • Cherries: use frozen cherries, or freeze your own fresh cherries if you have a lot.
  • Milk: any non-dairy milk will work. I like something really creamy like cashew or homemade almond milk.
  • Cherry juice: try to get tart cherry juice rather than black or sweet cherry juice. Either will work but the tart cherry adds an extra layer to the smoothie.
  • Yogurt: coconut yogurt is great, but any unflavoured vegan yogurt can be used.
  • Fruit powder: pitaya and acai are ideal, but you can use something like strawberry or raspberry too. This is just for the look in the glass so it can be omitted.

Step by Step

Cherry smoothie steps 1 to 4, mixing and layering in the glass.

Step 1: add the smoothie ingredients to a blender.

Step 2: mix until very smooth.

Step 3: paint a glass with a little yogurt and sprinkle fruit powder in the cup.

Step 4: pour the smoothie into the cup and top with more yogurt if desired.

Top Tips

  • Choose a darker fruit powder: if you use something like strawberry powder, it works okay, but won't show up as well as acai or pitaya against the dark pink smoothie.
  • Use frozen fruit: fresh fruit will make the smoothie too watery, so be sure to get frozen cherries, pineapple, and avocado.
  • Use sweet cherries: make sure you're getting sweet or black cherries, and not sour or tart cherries, which will make a less sweet smoothie.

Why is the Erewhon smoothie so expensive?

They use name-brand items that they sell on site (and the brands pay to be included) so it drives the price up a lot. It's all branding.

Is a cherry smoothie good for you?

Cherries are high in vitamins and antioxidants, so it can be a good option. I think of this smoothie as more of a treat than a daily drink like a green smoothie.
