Chocolate-Covered (Tart) Cherry Smoothie Recipe

Posted Mar 24 2010 3:17pm

Thanks so much for all your kind words on my recent posts! Your thoughts and opinions are SO appreciated!! :-D

And I’m tickled pink that y’all loved my Amish farm/critter post: Amish Country, Sunny Skies + Critters !

If you’re new to Healing With (Raw) Juices, or are behind on your blog reading, be sure to catch up on my latest posts:

Caught up yet? Good! ;-)

I snatched this Lucuma powder right up when I went on my $50 iHerb shopping spree . I have other plans for it, too, but I thought I’d throw it in the latest craving: Chocolate-Covered (Tart) Cherry Smoothie. It really did enhance the flavor and texture – I love it!

Evan (from Food Makes Fun Fuel) dumps Lucuma on his yogurt ! Haven’t tried that yet, have you?

And if you’re a first-time www.iHerb.com shopper, you can save $5 on your first order by using this code: TUN499 <— Take advantage of that RAWsome deal! ;-)

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder (I used the NOW brand, certified organic.)
  • 1 tablespoon Lucuma powder (I used Navitas Naturals, certified organic.)
  • 2 tablespoons tart cherry concentrate (I’ll be sharing an in-depth post on this soon – this stuff changed. my. life!)
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 4 ice cubes
  • 1/2 to 1 cup of almond milk (I started with a 1/3 cup and added a little more – but with 1/3 cup, it was more like raw ice cream!) :-D

Directions:

  1. Toss ingredients in blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Pour into a glass and enjoy this rich, decadent drink!

Note: I’m used to the tart cherry concentrate but it might be a bit strong for you if you aren’t. This smoothie is really, really chocolatey and the tart cherry shines through nicely. It’s not bitter, it’s delish! But if you aren’t a fan of even a slight bit of tartness, you may want to balance out the smoothie with either more sweetener, less tart cherry concentrate – or just use sweet cherries.  

 

Have you ever made a chocolate-covered smoothie? (I’m sure Katie has!) What is your all-time favorite smoothie? I love green smoothies most – especially when hemp protein and spinach are involved! But some days, Raw Juice Girl just needs a little chocolate in her life. ;-)
