If you read yesterday's post, then you are here to find out about this smoothie that uses that delicious raw almond milk I showed you how to make. If you didn't read yesterday's post, go check it out and then make sure to come back and get the recipe for this smoothie that uses the delicious raw almond milk ;)
When I buy fruit for my daily smoothies, I most often buy them frozen. Because lets face it, I'm in Canada and fresh, affordable and ripe fruit isn't always available all year round. I have my go to fruits or fruit blends I use regularly, and I make sure I use them in different ways so I don't get sick of them. But yesterday, while I was at the store, I found frozen cherries. My store had never carried them before (that I know of). I knew exactly what I wanted to make with it: a choco-cherry smoothie!
And delicious it was!
I apologize if you are the measuring type for no matter what recipe you make, because smoothie making isn't always an exact science. Sometimes, you just throw things together and the result can still be delicious. Build those kitchen instincts! I'll just give you the super simple, super basic, super nutritious list of ingredients and you can play with it to suit your taste ;)
- frozen cherries
- raw vanilla almond milk
- chia seeds
- raw cacao powder (start with less, rather than a big scoop, as it can be bitter and overpowering)
- agave nectar (or even maple syrup would have been fantastic)
That's it! Just blend and enjoy as breakfast, snack or satisfying dessert!
