Waking up and having something chocolately for breakfast seems so indulgent, but this chocolate cherry smoothie tastes more indulgent than it actually is, as it is very healthy.

I think that adding a frozen banana to smoothies makes them so much better, as it tastes more like an ice cream milkshake, but you can use an unfrozen banana too.
I always love the combination of chocolate and cherries, which is why I have been having this smoothie a lot recently. It is so quick to throw together, that is makes a really good snack or as part of a balanced breakfast. I shall be posting lots more smoothie recipes before summer is over.
Ingredients – Serves 2:
– 2 frozen bananas, sliced (I slice them before freezing)
– 20 pitted cherries
– 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
– 375ml/1.5 cup almond milk (you can use any milk)
1) Put all the ingredients in to a food processor and blend until smooth.

I made this smoothie in my Froothie Optimum 9400 which I am still loving. I use it every morning to make my green smoothies and it blends everything up perfect. Sometimes frozen bananas can be difficult to blend up, but the Froothie is so powerful that it didn’t have any problems with it. It is much more powerful than the Vitamix too. I am going to be giving one of these away very soon.
