Cherry Garcia Smoothie

Oh, cherry season. How I love thee. I usually end up eating my first bag of the season in a single seating, thus creating the world's worst stomach-ache. And I'm like, "why did I do that?", only to go back for more cherries the next day. Cherries and chocolate are even more sinful, and actually remind me of my family vacation to Vermont when I was a kid. We visited the Ben & Jerry's factory and got to watch how they make ice cream, and then sample their best-seller "Cherry Garcia" at the end. This is Cherry Garcia reincarnated in a healthy breakfast smoothie. And you don't have to fly all the way to Vermont to get it.

Cherry Garcia Smoothie

  • 1 cup pitted cherries
  • 1 pkg. chocolate Carnation Breakfast Essentials (I used sugar-free)
  • 1 tbsp. chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 cup ice
Add all of the ingredients into a blender and puree until smooth.
