Dark Chocolate Cherry Smoothie
It was NOT easy to get a decent photo of this smoothie without it looking like mud, so I focused more on the bright colors and the fun bendy straw. Besides, we all know what smoothies look like, don’t we? I have seen so many chocolate cherry recipes popping up lately so I decided to get on the bandwagon. I love the combo of the tart cherries and bittersweet chocolate, especially in the summer.
Also, I have a confession. I haven’t been very diligent at filling my quota of fresh greens during the day. Because of that, I snuck an avocado into this smoothie to start the week off right. Now you don’t have to do that; it’s completely optional. However, it is a great addition of healthy fats to your day and you can’t taste it. So, why not?
What you’ll need:
1 cup (maybe a little more) unsweetened almond milk (or milk of choice)
1 TBS organic cocoa powder
1 cup (give or take) frozen organic cherries
1 scoop berry protein (optional)
ice, if needed
- dash of stevia or honey
