Chocolate Cherry Espresso Smoothie

Posted Jun 26 2013 8:08am

Now that the weather is getting really hot in DC, I’ve found myself craving smoothies again. But here’s the problem – I’ve just come back from an early a.m. run., and I want caffeine, but I also need to refuel. What to do? Introducing my new favorite: Chocolate Cherry Espresso Smoothie.

I dreamed up this creation last week and have been enjoying it ever since. The star is this unsweetened chocolate almondmilk from Almond Breeze !

And, of course, the espresso. :) We got this Nespresso Pixie espresso machine for our last fall and I’ve been obsessed ever since.

A few seconds in the blender later, and voila! Caffeine and recovery nutrients, all in one smoothie. I’ve heard that cherries help decrease inflammation – perfect for after a run! You can also add protein powder to this smoothie for extra staying power, or pair it with a piece of toast with some almond butter. I <3 almonds in all forms. :)

Oh and yes, I totally put sliced banana on the cup rim to make it look cuter. :) I’m pretty sure food that looks pretty tastes better. Am I right?
