Thick and Creamy Chocolate Cherry Smoothie

Thick and Creamy Chocolate Cherry Smoothie

Get your chocolate fix (and your greens) with this thick and decadent chocolate cherry smoothie with cocoa powder, frozen cherries, baby greens and almond butter. Vegan and gluten-free.

The cherry and chocolate smoothie combo isn’t something new for me. I’ve been in love with it ever since trying Kristen’s Cherry Chocolate Bomb Shake a few years ago. For some reason back then it seemed like frozen cherries were hard to find, but lately I’ve been seeing them every time I go to the store so I decided to buy a bag and experiment with an updated chocolate cherry smoothie.

This time I jazzed things up a bit by adding a cup of baby greens (love a green smoothie) as well as a little almond butter for some healthy fats.

I personally really like the bittersweet flavor that the cacao powder adds and the tartness from the cherries, but if you like things a little on the sweeter side I’d recommend adding in frozen banana chunks or a few medjool dates into the smoothie too. Either of these will sweeten it right up!

Frozen Cherries are Key
Using frozen cherries gives the smoothie a thick consistency and makes it really cold, which I prefer. Room temp smoothies just aren’t my thing!

This smoothie is meant to serve one, but it can also be halved and used as a snack. I portioned mine into two small mason jars and stored one in the fridge for later.
