update 7/21/09 pitting cherries is easy take out the stem and then shove a chopstick in the indention that the stem makes and out comes the pit - original review 7/18/09 so yummy (note to self: pitting cherries is a little messy buy a pitting thingy). I didn't like the way it looked in the glass after I poured the cherry-pineapple over the ice so I poured the whole thing ice and all back in the blender and whirred it more. I thought (before I made it) that I'd need to add more liquid but I was wrong. Already drank it all and I didn't share:) Read More

I did not care for the texture and the taste was unremarkable. Read More

You may use frozen cherries in this we did since fresh cherries are not always available. I also added plain yogurt and a little bit of chopped ice and pineapple juice from canned rings. My extra ingredients made a regular smoothie instead of pouring over ice. DELISH!!! Read More

Yummy! I had some cherries that needed to be used up. This was the perfect way. I also blended in some vanilla ice cream and sprayed some whipped topping on top. Delicious. Read More

I've been trying to find more drinks with cherry - they're not common. Good flavor. I could taste plenty of the pineapple. The problem with anything with pineapple though is that it's stringy even running through the blender. I included the juice from the can to make it easier to mix and just mixed the heck out of it but there was still a bit of the stringy stuff left. (Since the pineapple is plenty liquidy I may see how well this strains before adding the cherry.) I used frozen cherries so also only used a couple of ice cubes. Read More
