Smoothie bowls make great, nutritious meals. They taste like a treat, but can be packed with fruits and vegetables. Smoothies make the perfect breakfast for busy mornings because they can be made in less than 5 minutes. They are also made with mostly frozen ingredients, which makes it really easy to have these ingredients on hand. My newest favorite smoothie combination is a chocolate cacao 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 gives the smoothie an ice cream-like taste and texture.
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 without adding flavor.
Almond Milk: You will need unsweetened almond milk for this recipe.
Cacao Powder: Cacao powder adds a chocolate flavor to this smoothie, but tastes bitter by itself. The natural sweetness of the fruits balance out the cacao to give this smoothie its chocolate cherry flavor.
Cinnamon: I love adding a dash of cinnamon to smoothies, but this is optional.
Peanut Butter: You will need peanut butter to make this recipe. You can also substitute the peanut butter for almond butter.
