A little something to sweeten your day and boost your mood! Sweet cherries and cacao blended with almond milk come together creating this healthy, rich and flavorful vegan Chocolate Cherry Smoothie.


  • 2 cups frozen cherries
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (plain or vanilla)
  • 2 tablespoons raw cacao powder (cocoa powder is ok too)
  • 1 small medjool date (pitted and chopped) or 1 teaspoon pure maple syrup, optional
  • 1 scoop protein powder (plain or vanilla) or 2 tablespoons almond butter, optional

optional toppings

  • granola
  • cacao nibs
  • hemp hearts


In blender, add ingredients and blend until smooth, adding a little extra milk as needed.

Serve with optional toppings and eat with a spoon or sip with a straw. Enjoy often!

Makes 1 generous, or 2 small, servings.


If using fresh cherries, add 1/2 cup of ice or 1 frozen banana and reduce the cherries to 1 1/2 cups. Start with only 1/2 cup of milk, adding more milk as needed.

Want to make this super decadent, try using light coconut milk from the can!

Make this raw by using water or homemade almond milk.
