Pieced Pastimes: Cherry Chocolate Smoothie

Cherry Chocolate Smoothie

On my last trip to the market, a package of fresh cherries happened to find their way into my basket and I am so glad they did. They were perfectly ripe with a lovely, sweet taste that just can't be beat. Add to that their 'super fruit' benefits and I knew it was a smart decision.

Being that the bag was pretty big, I needed to come up with a way to use up these delicious little morsels before their prime time passed by.

Smoothies seemed to be the way to go and this combination proved to be a winner.

Now, onto the recipe:

Cherry Chocolate Smoothie

Serves 1

- 1 Banana, sliced (frozen for a cooler drink)
- 3/4 cup Baby Spinach
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1/2 cup fresh pitted cherries
- 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 tsp pure maple syrup or agave (use more or less for your sweetness preference)

Place all ingredients in a high speed blender and mix. Add ice for a thicker, frappe like consistency.

Smoothies are my go-to breakfasts during the summer and this sweet mixture is now part of my regular rotation.
