It’s not everyday you find a bag of frozen cherries stuck in a snow bank. My mom did one of her marathon Costco runs and brought me back a huge bag. I wasn’t home at the time so she buried them. One of the perks living in the frozen North. You can literally make a freezer anywhere.
Now that I have an abundance of cherries I experimented with some new healthy smoothies to curb my sugar addiction during the week.
Chocolate covered cherry smoothie was born. I’m sure it’s been done a thousand different ways already. In fact, just when you think you’ve created something unique or put a different spin on something, Google tells you there’s already 300,000 versions. Thanks a lot Google.
This is how I’ll be making it forever and ever! It’s creamy, chocolate-cherry delicious and filling. Also not a DQ blizzard. Which I want every day but my jeans do not.
Here’s how it goes…
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk or low fat regular milk
- ¼ cup vanilla yogurt
- 1 overripe banana, frozen
- ½ cup frozen cherries
- 1 tsp cocoa powder
- chocolate shavings to garnish - optional
- Place all ingredients in a blender, bullet or food processor. Blend until smooth.
