How to make a Dark Chocolate Cherry Smoothie
This recipe is seriously so simple to throw together, and made with just a few basic ingredients.
I used fresh cherries for this recipe, but frozen ones work just as well and yield a thicker, frozen smoothie! If you’re using fresh cherries, my go-to method to easily remove the pits is to place them on a cutting board, and poke the pit out using a metal straw
The yogurt adds a delicious creaminess to this recipe, while providing a boost of protein. I used a vanilla yogurt for a little added flavor, but plain or Greek yogurt work great too!
My go-to liquid for smoothies is unsweetened vanilla almond milk. Any plant-based or regular milk would work as a replacement
Unsweetened cocoa or cacao powder provide that rich chocolate taste with a serving of antioxidants
I love adding almond butter to my smoothies for some extra fat and creaminess
Kale or spinach are my staple greens to add to smoothies. They add some extra nutrients, without compromising the taste
If you like a sweeter smoothie, you can add 1 banana to the mix for a boost of natural sweetness.
Topping your smoothie off with some coconut whipped cream and dark chocolate is totally optional, but gives you a fancy feel right at home! You guys are going to love this refreshing treat!
