5 min
Delicious flavors of cherry, chocolate, and almond blend together for this irresistibly delicious and healthy smoothie. This Chocolate Cherry Smoothie is naturally sweetened and packs 14 grams of protein in this 15oz serving that can be used as a healthy meal replacement or recovery smoothie after a workout. This decadent tasting smoothie is creamy and tastes like a milkshake but WAY healthier and no processed sugar added. Tip: use frozen cherries for a thicker smoothie. Hemp hearts add protein and healthy benefits such as omega-3 and omega-6 for healthy brain function and cognitive focus, but you can omit if you do not have them or can't find locally.
