Summer is right around the corner and what’s every raw foodie’s favorite part of the season? The abundance of fresh summer produce of course! This smoothie is packed full of antioxidants from dark cherries and makes for an equally pleasing dessert or breakfast. Add a vegan protein powder like Epic Protein (Lucuma Vanilla flavor would be amazing) Or turn it into a green smoothie by throwing in a handful or two of greens. This treat is based on Kristen’s Chocolate Cherry Bomb recipe.
- 1 small banana (or 1/2 large), frozen
- 3/4 cup frozen or fresh and pitted cherries
- 1/2 tbsp coconut butter
- 2 tsps cinnamon
- 1 cup almond milk
- 3-4 ice cubes
- Optional add-ins: hemp, pea, or rice protein powder, cocoa powder, spirulina, fresh greens
Blend all ingredients on high till the smoothie is creamy and thick. Serve with fresh or frozen cherries on top!
