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 !
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.
