This creamy smoothie tastes like a chocolate cherry dessert but is filled with antioxidants, protein, fiber, and healthy fats instead of white flour and white sugar. Enough said.

WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE: 

Sweet cherries are an all-time favorite summer snack, but there are a few ways to make sure you can enjoy them year-round. Our favorite is by freezing them and then throwing them into smoothies. Their health benefits are seriously impressive. They’re packed with antioxidants that protect your body against free radicals, and eating them has been associated with decreasing inflammation. They’re also a great source of dietary fiber (which most Americans don’t get enough of!), vitamin C, and potassium. Pair this with a smoothie combo of greens, avocado, almond butter, and cacao, and you’re sipping on a nutrient packed, energizing, satiating, and seriously delicious breakfast.
