1 cup fresh or frozen cherries (pitted, if fresh)
2 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
2 Tablespoons unsalted almond butter
2 Tablespoons agave nectar
1 ripe medium banana
Ice cubes (optional)
This chocolate-y drink tastes more like a milkshake than a smoothie—but is packed with enough nutrition and protein to make for a tasty, on-the-go breakfast.
1. Place the cherries, almond milk, cocoa powder, almond butter, agave nectar, and banana in a blender; if using fresh cherries, add 3 or 4 ice cubes.
2. Blend until completely smooth, pour into glasses, and serve.
