Chocolate and cherries go together like peanut butter & jelly.
For this Smoothie Sunday, I am more than happy to present you with the creamy, the decadent, Chocolate Cherry Smoothie.
Yes, I know the word CHOCOLATE is in the name of this smoothie, so I want to take a minute to explain how healthy this super smoothie is for you. I bet you didn’t know how awesome cherries are for your health.
This little fruit is rich in vitamins C, E, potassium, magnesium, iron, and fiber. Combine that with my favorite super food, spinach…..and you have the ultimate 1-2 punch of goodness for your body!
Chocolate Cherry Smoothie
(makes 2 large smoothies)
1/2 cup Greek Yogurt
1 cup frozen, pitted cherries
1/2 cup, loosely packed baby spinach
1 cup chocolate almond milk (regular or chocolate coconut milk will also work)
1 TB chia seeds
1 TB honey
Note: If you do not have frozen fruit to use for the smoothies, fresh fruit will work just fine. If using fresh fruit, make sure to add a handful of ice to the other ingredients before blending. The frozen fruit just adds that cold element to make an ice cold drink.
Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
