Chocolate Covered Cherry Green Smoothie


This Chocolate Covered Cherry Green Smoothie will fool your tastebuds into thinking you’re sipping something far more decadent than a healthy smoothie!
Chocolate Covered Cherry Green Smoothie

We are big believers in creating smoothies that aren’t just healthy, but also taste amazing. This is one of those smoothies that is extra delicious. Cacao powder not only adds amazing chocolate flavor, it also adds antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals.

Cherries are one of our favorite ingredients, especially when they are in season. But during the rest of the year, we love blending up frozen cherries. Tart cherries can help muscles recover after working out. They are also full of dietary fiber, vitamin A, potassium, and even a little bit of calcium.

The nutrients in cherries can help support muscle, heart, kidney, and nerve cell functions. And get this – cherries contain melatonin. That means sipping this smoothie can help your body if you’re suffering from jetlag.

What can’t cherries do?!

Bonus points for this cherry green smoothie tasting like a milkshake in disguise!

      I am so happy you love this recipe so much! It really is so delicious =P

      Thank you for leaving a comment and letting us know!!!

    I had weight loss surgery 2.7 years ago. Here lately I have gotten in to smoothies to keep me balanced out better for lunch. This one..omg it is so yummy. Yes the cinnamon might taste a bit strong BUT it also is a natural blood sugar regulator.

  3. Sandra says:

    I only put half the cinnamon, but still found that it monopolized the taste. Otherwise it was delicious!

  4. Nancy says:

    I felt like the banana flavor overwhelmed the cherry flavor. Are there any substitutes you would recommend for the banana?

  5. Ana says:

    Delicious. I loved!

  6. Amy says:

    One of my favorite summertime treats! Highly recommend this one to satisfy your sweet desires with the cherries!

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi Amy!

      Thanks so much for your kind words! This one is definitely perfect for summer :). So happy it’s cherry season!

      Cheers!

  7. Caity says:

    This smoothie was delightful. It tastes like a chocolate milkshake, yet it leaves you energized unlike a milkshake.

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi Caity!

      So happy to hear you enjoyed it! I love this recipe when I’m craving something sweet like a milkshake :). I totally agree–doesn’t leave me with a sugar hangover, but satisfies my sweet tooth!

  8. Ami says:

    I didn’t have almond milk, so I used unsweetened coconut milk. I added oats and chia. So delicious.

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi Ami!

      Thanks for reaching out! Love the substitution :). I’m all about using what you have on hand! And oats + chia sound like a delicious addition to this recipe.

      Cheers!

  9. Krista says:

    Loved this one! Delish!! Found some sour cherries in the Frozen section so perfect!! Thanks 🙂

  10. Renee Lamoreux says:

    This is my favorite! It’s like having a dessert for breakfast! Thanks for all the yummy smoothie recipes.

  11. Deb says:

    I just made this smoothie this morning and I love it! I’m going to make it more often!

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi Deb,

      YAY! We’re so excited to hear you loved this recipe. It’s one of our favorites!

  12. Kim says:

    I could only find cacao in bars, will that work?

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi Kim,

      Can’t find cacao? No worries. Swap in unsweetened cocoa powder it makes the perfect substitute!

  13. Maria says:

    This is my absolute favorite!!! I add 2 Tbsp of chocolate plant protein when I use as a meal replacement and I also add maca and cayenne. One time I ran out of bananas and added an avocado (delicious). Love this recipe. Thanks so much!

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi Maria,

      Thank you so much for taking the time to share your love for our Chocolate Covered Cherry recipe. This is one of our favorites too! Also love your additions of adding a hint of cayenne or swapping in avocado in place of banana! Rawk on!

      Cheers 🙂

  14. Clara-Felia says:

    I was wondering what you think about strawberries instead of cherries? Cherries are out if season and hard to find even frozen!

    Thanks

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi Clara-Felia,

      We think that is a great idea!! Strawberries make the perfect substitute for cherries in this recipe!

      Cheers 🙂

  15. Maria says:

    This seems yum but I can’t have dark greens at the moment!
    Need a break from my delicious green smoothies.
    I did rotate them but maybe not as often as I should have?!
    Could I just skip the spinich?
    Thank you xx
