Cool Down With This Chocolate Cherry Smoothie Recipe

chocolate cherry smoothie
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.

Chocolate Cherry Smoothie Recipe


  • ½ cup almond or hemp milk
  • 1 packet Sustain protein powder
  • ¼ avocado
  • ½ cup frozen cherries
  • 1 tablespoon cacao powder
  • Dash of cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon of round flaxseeds and/or shredded coconut (optional)

Blend in a high-speed blender such as a VItamix and serve with a cherry on top.  Enjoy!
