Chocolate Cherry Smoothie

A little something to boost your mood and sweeten your day! Sweet dark cherries and cacao blended with nut milk come together in the blender to make this healthy, rich and flavorful Chocolate Cherry Smoothie.

Why we love this: Cherries are high in vitamins and minerals such as potassium, calcium, vitamin A, and folic acid. They are also high in powerful antioxidants and a great source of fiber.


  • 1 cup frozen cherries (fresh and pitted also works well here)

  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk

  • 2 tablespoons raw cacao powder (or cocoa powder)

  • 1 medjool date (pitted)

  • 1 scoop protein powder or 2 tablespoons almond butter, optional

optional toppings that we love:

  • granola

  • cacao nibs

  • hemp hearts

Instructions: Toss the smoothie ingredients into a high speed blender and give it a good whirl! Add more almond milk if needed. If using fresh cherries, add a handful of ice to the blender.
