CHERRY AND CHOCOLATE HEALTHY SMOOTHIE BOWL

CHERRY AND CHOCOLATE HEALTHY SMOOTHIE BOWL

Cherry and chocolate is a match made is dessert heaven. But this is not a dessert recipe. This smoothie bowl is full of healthy goodness and is the perfect breakfast or brunch for a warm sunny day. It’s sweet and decadent so you’d think you were indulging in a fat and sugar filled pudding, which is part of the novelty!

The quantities for this are very much “eye-balled” and it always depends on your appetite but better to make too much than to make too little – then you can share some smoothie bowl love with your loved ones!

Obviously cherries are very much a summer fruit so if you find yourself making this in winter: 1. you’ll be cold; and 2. I’d recommend frozen cherries over the imported, unnatural ones.

Serves: 1 (think 2-3 bananas person if you want to make it for more people)

Prep time: 5 min
