Black Magic Smoothie
I’m not really a morning person…
… and usually I don’t feel very hungry first thing in the day. But I have found that I do love having smoothies in the morning, as I find they don’t sit so heavy on my stomach like, say, eggs and toast might.
I’ve been experimenting with different combinations of flavors, and this one is a favorite of mine as it combines chocolate and cherries - a match made in heaven!
My smoothies usually end up being pretty thick; that’s just how I like them.
So here’s what you’ll need…
High speed blender (such as a Ninja, NutriBullet or Vitamix)
Large mug, cup, or glass to serve
1/2 C cherries, frozen
1/4 C oats
1-2 Tbps honey
1 Tbsp 100% cocoa powder (I use Hershey’s brand specialty dark cocoa)
1/4 C cashews
Roughly 2/3 - 1 C almond milk
How to make it…
Add all ingredients to blender and blend until smooth.
This makes about 16oz or 4-6 C of smoothie. As I mentioned before, I like my smoothies thick, so this would be a perfect base to build a smoothie bowl from using all you favorite toppings.
