As a kid there was no better treat than a chocolate covered cherry. This Chocolate and Cherry smoothie recipe recreates that exact taste without the high calorie guilt.
Its also easy to turn this chocolate and Cherry smoothie treat into a nutrition powerhouse just by adding a tablespoon of Chia seed. Chia is a natural seed that adds a large measure of nutrition including heart healthy, cholesterol fighting omega 3 fatty acids and antioxidants. Even better, unlike Flax, Chia doesn’t have a taste of its own so adding it here won’t change the delicious results.
In your favorite blender mix:
