Cherry Cacao Smoothie Bowl

One meal I never get sick of is smoothie bowls. I love to make smoothie bowls because they taste like a treat, but are packed with fruits and veggies. Smoothie bowls are perfect for busy mornings because they take less than five minutes to make! They are also made with mostly frozen ingredients. Frozen produce is great because it is just as nutritious as fresh produce and is typically less expensive. My newest favorite smoothie combo is a chocolate cherry smoothie This recipe is naturally sweetened by the fruit and contains no added sugar!

What You’ll Need:

Frozen Cherries: You will need frozen cherries for this recipe. I recommend using frozen cherries because the pits are already removed and frozen produce makes the smoothie taste more like a frozen treat.

Frozen Banana: You will need one peeled and frozen banana for this recipe. The frozen banana makes the smoothie taste like ice cream.

Frozen Riced Cauliflower: This may sound strange, but I love adding frozen cauliflower to smoothies. It is a great way to add in extra veggies and I can’t even taste it.

Almond Milk: You will need unsweetened almond milk for this recipe.

Cacao Powder: Cacao powder adds a chocolate flavor to this smoothie, but it tastes bitter by itself. The natural sweetness of the fruits makes this taste like a chocolate cherry smoothie.

Cinnamon: I love adding a dash of cinnamon to smoothies, but this is optional.

Almond Butter: You will need almond butter for this recipe. Look for an almond butter with no added sugar or oil.

How to Make a Cherry Cacao Smoothie Bowl:

Blend all ingredients until smooth!
