HEALTH BENEFITS OF CHERRIES
Adding cherries to your diet can decrease the pain associated with arthritis and gout. They also contain powerful antioxidants that help fight cancer. For the ones with the most flavonoids, choose the deep purple ones over the bright red ones. Cherries contain melatonin, so they may help you sleep. Have a few before bed, just make sure it’s not right after dinner since fruit should always be eaten on an empty stomach.

LOOOOOOVE the Vanilla Chai! It's our favorite too! If you were going to get more flavors we'd go chocolate next 🙂 Especially since we'll be doing some more NON-smoothie recipes soon where you can use it for a protein boost. 🙂 Thx Amy!
I've only tried the VegaOne Vanilla Chai. Love it… but need to USE IT before I can justify additional $ to purchase other flavors!
I love the Vega protein bars and have been dying to try more of their products! Also would be something yummy to add to my morning smoothie!
