It doesn’t get much better than this chocolate cherry smoothie recipe on a hot summer day. With this recipe, you can have dessert for breakfast! You can use fresh or frozen cherries for this recipe – I like to load up on both when they’re in season this time of year.
This recipe has everything that I love in a breakfast smoothie: Protein from the Sustain powder; healthy fats from the avocado; antioxidants, vitamin C and beta carotene from the cherries; antioxidants, magnesium and iron from the cacao powder.
