Chocolate Cherry Smoothie

Chocolate Cherry Smoothie 

It’s time to shine the spotlight on this chocolate cherry smoothie. I started making this after our trip to Michigan, where we enjoyed seasonal fresh cherries from a roadside farmstand. 

By using frozen cherries, you can enjoy this smoothie all year round, not just in the summer. I love frozen produce for that reason.

The chocolate taste comes from the flavored protein powder. Below, I linked to the one I used. Trust me when I say you’re going to love the chocolate + cherry combo. Think… chocolate-covered strawberries.

Chocolate Cherry Smoothie 

Serves 1

Ingredients 

  • ½ cup frozen red cherries 
  • ½ cup frozen cauliflower
  • Scoop of chocolate protein powder
  • 1 tablespoon flax or chia seed
  • 1 pitted date
  • Heaping spoonful greek yogurt 
  • Heaping spoonful almond butter 
  • 1 teaspoon cocoa nibs (optional)
  • 1 cup milk of choice 

Instructions 

  1. Combine all ingredients in a high-speed blender. Blend until smooth. Pour in a glass and enjoy immediately. 

Notes

  • I used this Vega One Chocolate protein powder. 
  • Why cauliflower? I use cauliflower in this recipe as a way to sneak in a veggie. The flavor is neutral so you can’t taste it. If you don’t like cauliflower you can skip it or add a handful of spinach instead. 
  • I add the pitted date for extra sweetness. You could also add 1/2 a banana.
