Equipment

  • 2 - Serving Glasses

Ingredients

Cherry Puree

  • 3 cups fresh cherries, pitted and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice

COCONUT CREAM

  • 1/3 cup unsweetened canned coconut milk shaken
  • 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 can Sparkling Water Black Cherry, or any cherry flavor

Instructions

Cherry Puree

  • In a small saucepan, add the pitted and chopped cherries, maple syrup and lemon juice. Cook over medium-low heat, periodically mashing the cherries with a wooden spoon. Cook until the juices have been released from the cherries and the mix becomes slightly thick - about 10 minutes.
  • Press the cherry puree through a fine mesh strainer set over a small bowl. Press the mix firmly through the strainer using the wooden spoon, making sure to scrape the underside of the strainer to collect all the cherry juice! Set in the refrigerator to cool completely - for at least 10 minutes.
  • The cherry puree can also be made ahead of time and stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.

Coconut Cream

  • Shake the can of coconut milk and empty into a container with a lid. Stir as needed to make sure the milk is smooth and free of lumps. Pour 1/3 cup of cream into a liquid measuring cup. Cover the remaining coconut cream and keep in the fridge to use for a different recipe, or to make smoothies!
  • Add the maple syrup to the coconut cream in the measuring cup and stir until mixed.
  • Once the cherry puree has cooled, fill 2 serving glasses 1/3 full of ice. Scoop equal amounts of cherry puree on top of the ice. Next pour equal amounts of the coconut cream on top of the cherry puree. Finish by filling each glass the remainder of the way with the sparkling water. Serve and enjoy!
