These Trader Joe’s cherries come frozen and pitted, and are perfect for adding to smoothies, drinks or just eating out of the bag after defrosting. You can leave the bag of sweet cherries out for a half hour or so and they’ll be perfectly defrosted. They add a good unique kick to smoothies, or for a mixed blended drink. There are a few different types of cherries that TJs has sold over the years, including Trader Joe’s Amarena cherries and Morello cherries. These aren’t sitting in any liquid like those other varieties are, but they have a nice fresh cherry taste that has nothing added to it. Keep these in the back of your fridge for an easy to defrost and eat treat!………….

Frozen Pitted Dark Sweet Cherries from Trader Joe’s
It’s surprisingly not that easy to find frozen cherries for under $4 without anything added to them, so these are a good bargain at TJs. What recipes or other foods does everyone like using these pitted cherries in? Cherries are a good fruit for smoothies since they add a subtle sweetness without dominating the other fruit flavors. You can also garnish cocktails with a few of these cherries for a much cheaper and healthier alternative to amarena or maraschino cherries. If anyone has any unique or creative ways to use these cherries, I’d love to hear! In any case, if you want a good pure cherry flavor without a ton of added sweetness, these are a great frozen option. And you don’t even have to worry about biting into the pit!…..
