Often touted as the miracle fruit for athletes, this sweet ice-cream topper has been shown to minimize post-exercise induced muscle and joint pain. Tart cherries (not the sweet Maraschino cherries found in Shirley Temples!), also get applause for anti-inflammatory and heart health benefits due to their unique package of phytonutrients, including anthocyanins as well as its vitamin C and potassium. Cherry pits contain chemicals that release cyanide when broken down, so be sure to remove the pit and the stem before adding to your NutriBullet cup.

Selection Process

Select dark red, firm cherries with stems attached. Be sure to avoid soft, damaged or shriveled ones and store in the refrigerator for up to ten days.
