So first, you're going to want to get out your blender. Here I have a Vita Mix, but I suppose any kind will work.
If you don't have a blender, you can just do this all by hand by stirring with a large spoon.
Add 1 cup of crushed ice into the blender (or whatever you're using).
For the yogurt, I used a 5.3 oz. cup of Oikos lime Greek yogurt. Add the whole thing to the blender.
Add as many Maraschino cherries as you want (I use between 2 and 4). Additionally, pour some of the juice the cherries are in into the blender.
A good splash of milk can now be added into the blender.
About 1/4 of a teaspoon, though it doesn't need to be exact...
...of Imitation strawberry extract.
If you want a really pink smoothie, feel free to add a few drops of red or pink food coloring.
Blend on low for 30 seconds (or stir, if you feel so inclined) and pour into your cup.
And there we go! About 8 oz. of a healthy, natural, quick and easy cherry lime smoothie!
