Cherries are a truly marvelous tree! Not only do they produce such delicious, gorgeous fruit, but they also create some of the showiest, prettiest puffy flower displays of all the plant kingdom. In cities around the world, spring begins with the unfurling of thousands of these ephemeral pink flowers, which are gone in just a matter of weeks.
Now, the cherries that produce the beautiful flowers are actually different cultivars than the ones which make the yummy fruit. But just look what happens when you combine the sweet, tart flavor of the fruit, with the serene beauty of the flowers! it makes for quite a picture.
Even if you don’t have some gorgeous cherry blossoms on hand, you can still make these delicious cherry and berries coconut cups! They will still be absolutely stunning, both on the plate and in your mouth.
The recipe does call for heating up the cherry juice in order to condense it. If you want to stick to purely raw, you can probably get away with just using 2 tablespoons of uncondensed cherry juice, but the cherry flavor won’t be as intense.
