It’s officially smoothie season! Smoothies are a great meal, snack or post long run recovery drink. While this one isn’t high enough in protein to be a recovery drink, it’s still full of healthy ingredients. It includes every runner’s favorite food in the post Born To Run era, chia seeds.
And every pms-ing woman’s favorite food chocolate (in the form of cacao).
It’s a chocolate-covered cherry smoothie!
Chocolate-Covered Cherry Smoothie Recipe
- 10 ounces of your choice of milk (I used coconut milk)
- 1 frozen banana
- 1/2 cup frozen pitted cheeries
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
- 1 tablespoon raw cacao
Put ingredients in blender and blend until smooth.
Additional variations: add one scoop of your favorite protein powder or 1 cup of greens for a boost of nutrients.
