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 green smoothie tasting like a milkshake in disguise!
