Cherry-Ripe-Kakadu-Plum

After seeing the first fresh cherries of the season at our local green grocer, we knew we had to make a cherry ripe smoothie! Made with our Dark Cacao and Kakadu Plum Native WPI blend, this smoothie is loaded with beneficial antioxidants and nutrients.

Health benefits of cherries

  • Help fight cancer and disease – cherries are loaded with flavonoids, which are power antioxidants that help fight free radicals in the body.
  • Ease pain of arthritis – excess uric acid in the blood causes swelling, tenderness and inflammation. Cherries are known to reduce the levels of uric acid in the body.
  • Help you sleep – cherries are one of the few foods which contains high levels of melatonin, the hormone that regulates our sleep and wake cycles.
  • Regulates blood pressure – owing to the high levels of potassium, cherries have the ability to regulate high blood pressure.
  • Cure headaches/migraines – due to the anthocyanin and bioflavonoids, cherries carry compounds that are known to have similar activity to aspirin and ibuprofen, which makes it ideal for a natural cure for headaches and migraines.
