This thick, creamy, indulgent plant-based cherry chocolate smoothie tastes like a dessert but is loaded with antioxidants, fiber, protein, and beneficial nutrients. A more-ish dairy-free, refined sugar-free, vegan breakfast or snack that's ready in just 5 minutes!
In a high-speed blender, combine the frozen cherries, banana, peanut butter, cocoa powder, and plant-based milk, and blend until it’s completely smooth. Start with ½ cup of milk and if you want a thinner smoothie, add the remaining ¼ cup.
Note: If you’re using a standard blender (instead of a high-speed blender), start with the plant-based milk and ¼ cup of the cherries and slowly add in the rest of the ingredients. It’ll be easier on your blender.
Adjust the consistency: Add more plant-based milk or use fresh (not frozen) ingredients for a thinner smoothie. For a thicker one, add some ice cubes or ground oats.
Tweak to your liking: We’ve included several optional add-ins that you can experiment with based on if you’d prefer more fiber, protein, antioxidants, etc.
For a lighter smoothie: Replace half the banana with frozen cauliflower or omit it entirely and adjust the amount of liquid accordingly.
Tips for best blending: Always add the liquids and softest ingredients closest to the blades.
