Blissful Cherry Recipes with @cheribundi

This Summer, the temperatures have risen to record high numbers. Even though the season is winding down (I hate saying that!), it's still plenty warm, and we all need to keep well hydrated regardless of the weather! These delicious and nutritious Cheribundi Tart Cherry Juice recipes definitely make hydration a breeze - and a flavour-packed one at that. Cheribundi’s refreshing taste, and fun red color is a perfect way to drink in concentrated antioxidants, vitamins and other nutrients while making almost everything you add it to Instagram-beautiful.

More then 150 pro and college sports teams use Cheribundi for its health benefits too, and tart cherry juice certainly has its fair share of them. These include anti-inflammation and pain relief - something that my family (including avid gardeners, gym buffs and arthritis sufferers) definitely need on a daily basis. Below are a few of Cheribundi's favourite recipes to try out for yourself!



Cheri Pop
Who doesn’t love an ice cold Popsicle on a blazing summer afternoon. This snack is great for a day of hanging out in the pool, or after long day at the park. So simple, so delicious, two ingredient Popsicle.
32oz Cheribundi tart cherry juice (or any of your favorite Cheribundi variations)
1 popsicle mold
  1. Take delicious Cheribundi juice and pour the 32oz bottle into your popsicle mold. (If the mold doesn’t come with it’s own handles, add 1 popsicle stick into the mold.) 
  2. Put the mold in the freezer until solid. 
  3. Remove the popsicles from the mold, and you have yourself a super simple frozen treat to keep you cool this summer.



Chillin' Cheri Snowcone
Break out that electric ice shaver you haven't used since your last kid turned 5, and turn down summer's heat wave with frosty fresh-pressed tart cherry juice snow cones.
Electric ice shaver
8 oz Cheribundi Tart Cherry Juice
Ice
  1. Shave ice into a cone cup, and then pour delicious Cheribundi Tart Cherry Juice over the top.
  • You can also pour Cheribundi into ice cube trays and shave the frozen tart red juice right into the cones for a simple, delicious, healthy treat that's ready in mere seconds!

Mom’s Cheri Treat
Even moms need a break from the heat this summer. This icy cold treat with a little kick is the perfect solution.
4 oz dry limeade mix
1 Tbsp. lime juice
4 cups cold water
2 cups of Cheribundi tart cherry juice
1 cup tequila
3/4 cup triple sec
  1. Mix all ingredients into a large pitcher, and stir to combine. 
  2. Pour into plastic cups with lids and cap. 
  3. Freeze for up to 5 hours. Remove when ready to drink!

Thanks again to the folks at Cheribundi. Not only did they share an amazing, delicious and healthy treat  with me, but their customer service staff are beyond wonderful! They went above and beyond to make sure I received my package (even when UPS didn't want to play ball) and followed up to make sure everything was A-OK! I'm looking forward to seeing their products in my local stores in the GTA.
