Chocolate Covered Cherry Smoothie (Vegan)

This smoothie tastes more like a decadent dessert than breakfast and that’s why I love it so much.  Of course, my kids love it too and since there is NO sugar or sweeteners, I feel good about serving it to them.

Cherries are high in potassium, Vitamin C and beta carotene and are loaded with antioxidents.  They taste pretty darn good as well!  Fresh cherries are so good in the summer, but I keep frozen cherries in my freezer most of the time to make smoothies such as this one.

Chocolate Covered Cherry Smoothie (Vegan)

  • 1 cup chocolate almond milk
  • 1 cup frozen cherries
  • 1 very ripe banana
  • 1 heaping tbsp natural peanut butter (or 2 tbsp if you really love PB like I do!)
  • Dash of cinnamon
  • Handful of ice cubes

Blend well in a high speed blender and enjoy!!

This smoothie makes the perfect breakfast, snack or dessert!  And I bet it would make awesome frozen pops, but I haven’t tried that….yet.

    Lord girl I never thought you would get me to want to eat/drink your food. I am really starting to think you need to start your cook book. I am proud of you for trying new healthy ways to feed your family and taking us along your journey!

      Thanks!! Most of the recipes are created by others, so I don’t know if I see a cookbook in my future. I’m trying to be better about creating my own though, so you never know…
