Berry Cherry Chocolate Smoothie

August 2, 2011

When I got home from BodyPump this morning Travis had gone to get his dry cleaning but had left the blender out so I went ahead and took to making our smoothies!

This weekend I got a huge bag of cherries and the first thing that came to mind was “Cherry Garcia” ice cream! I love all the Ben and Jerry flavors so to trying to replicate as a healthy breakfast is perfect! 

What I didn’t think about was how time-consuming it would be to de-seed all the cherries I would need to make a batch of smoothies for two. *Note to self, cut cherries ahead of time.

 Luckily for me Travis walked in the door with a bag of frozen strawberries and some more soy milk so I added some strawberries to the mix. This was a total life saver. I would have been there for hours(ok a few more minutes, but I had to get ready for work. I don’t have time to be cutting up cherries all morning I have bills to pay and fuzzy mouths to feed!)

Having both cherries and strawberries made this smoothie even more like a milkshake. It kind of tasted like a Neapolitan ice cream milkshake. I was in LOVE!

I have to say I think this is the best one yet! Since we’ve been using soy milk instead of cow’s milk I can really tell a difference in how I feel in the morning’s. I don’t feel so weighed down and overly full.

This is just my preference so do what’s best for you when making your smoothies.

I need to invest in a cherry pitter too – want to split the cost? ;)

My blender has been broken for a month and I am missing it dearly! I procrastinated (standard) on ordering the piece that is broken but finally got around to it this weekend. So you bet your booty I will be making this first thing when the piece comes!

I just started making my smoothies out of soy milk and I love it! They come out thicker and slightly sweeter. This looks delicious!

One of my FAVORITE things to snack on are frozen cherries. You can buy a bag at Publix and they’re already pitted. They are also just delicious on their own. Word.

just made one of these for breakfast this morning! delish!
and i’m completely right there w/ you on the soy milk… almond milk is even more delicious, but not quite as healthy, so my husband and i stick to vanilla soy.
