7.20.16 I drink a lot of breakfast smoothies, and this is one of the best that I’ve ever had! Bing cherries have been on sale, so I’ve been trying a lot of new recipes incorporating cherries this past week. This simply has an awesome blend of ingredients, and the perfect balance between sweet and tart. I used frozen banana but also added a little crushed ice to reach the thicker texture that I prefer. Viscouse, thanks for the new smoothie recipe which is going into my favorites folder. This is a winner!-20 Jul 2016
Chocolate Cherry Smoothie
Healthy Chocolate Cherry Smoothie features sweet cherries and cacao blended with almond milk creating a rich and flavorful vegan smoothie everyone will love. It may even leave you feeling happier and energized!
Chocolate and cherries, a classic combination of pure deliciousness in a smoothie!
I always find after having cacao in my smoothie that I get a bit happier and more energized. It’s the mood boosting ‘feel good’ endorphins from the cacao kicking in.
This smoothie is a heart-smart way to staying happy and healthy, and I know you’re going to love it!
Chocolate Cherry Smoothie
This chocolate cherry smoothie recipe has been sitting in wait. A few weeks ago, there was a sale on frozen fruits and I bought a few bags of frozen cherries.
They’ve been waiting patiently in the freezer for me to find the right time to put them to good use and it finally happened!
It seemed like the perfect time with all the cooking I’ve been doing lately. The last few weeks I’ve been triumphantly trying to update older posts and felt the need for something lighter.
Not to mention, the temperatures here are rising and a nice, cold smoothie is the best distraction!
Tips For The Best Chocolate Cherry Smoothie
- Cherries. We’ll be using frozen cherries but you can use fresh cherries if you like, just add a frozen banana or ½ cup of ice cubes to make everything chilly.
- Milk. I used unsweetened almond milk, but you can use your favorite non-dairy milk – oat, soy, cashew, hemp, ect.
- Make it rich. For an ultra-decadent treat, try using light coconut milk from the can.
- Add protein. Give your smoothie a protein boost by adding a scoop of protein powder or a serving of almond butter for added nutrition.
- Use a spoon or straw. You’ll notice I didn’t serve my smoothie with a straw but instead used a big spoon, it was thick enough to scoop up. Plus, I wanted to scoop the toppings with each spoonful. And of course, I added more granola before finishing it off. There is no wrong way to get your smoothie from point A to point B. :)
However you end up making yours, enjoy every last sip, or spoonful!

Cherry-Berry Smoothie Bowl
I never understood smoothie bowls… because apparently I was doing it wrong this whole time. Apparently, you don’t just make a normal smoothie then dump it in a bowl. I remember being like, “This is stupid. Why am I eating this like soup when I could just use a straw?!”
When I read it was supposed to be more like ice cream (because you’re supposed to use less liquid) I felt like such an idiot, how obvious. So now that we’re in the constant-heat-wave part of summer I decided to go for it again because who doesn’t want an ice creamish breakfast? This one turned out pretty good. I’m into it. I’m a smoothie bowl person now.
Chia seeds help make this Vitamin C packed smoothie even more hydrating. They hold up to 10x their weight in liquid, so it helps keep you hydrated for longer—which we definitely need in this heat! Feel free to swap out the cherries and raspberries with whatever fruit you have in your freezer, and if you don’t have collagen powder, you can use any protein powder you like. Smoothie bowls are pretty customizable, but the protein powder and nut butter help make it a balanced meal so you aren’t dying of hunger before it’s time for lunch, so try not to skip those!
Choosing the Right Ingredients
This berry smoothie recipe is forgiving – you can mix up frozen and fresh berries, choose a flavored yogurt, add honey if desired, and substitute milk (dairy or nondairy) for coconut water. Play around with the ingredients and get it exactly to your liking.
- Berries/Fresh Strawberries . I use all frozen berries except for the strawberries – those are fresh. Use all fresh or all frozen or some fresh/some frozen. Really, do whatever is most convenient for you. I will suggest, though, if you use all fresh berries, you’ll need to add a little ice to thicken the smoothie up.
- Greek yogurt. Greek yogurt also creates a thick, creamy texture. Besides bananas (again, not present in this smoothie!), Greek yogurt is one of my favorite ingredients in smoothies. I use vanilla flavored, but any flavor is fine. Plain, strawberry, blueberry, honey, whatever. Maybe even a peach flavor? Get creative.
- Coconut water. Add coconut water to thin things out. If you do not like coconut water or don’t have any, use milk instead. I tried this with vanilla almond milk and it’s just as tasty.
- Honey. Outside of peak season, strawberries aren’t very sweet. Even when I use frozen strawberries (which are often frozen in season), the smoothie tastes quite tart. A little honey sweetens up the whole glass, but it’s optional. Taste test the smoothie after blending everything up. Then add the honey if you see fit or leave it out– totally your preference.

Berry Cherry Smoothie Recipe
Have you ever become obsessed with a certain type of food for like a week or even a month and just wanted to eat it every day. Well, that has kind of been me for the past two weeks (or maybe a month… but who’s counting!). Since it’s the summer I have become obsessed with smoothies and fruit bowls! I make a fruit smoothie practically every morning for breakfast. It never gets old!
I ALWAYS try to find healthy ways to eat. Whether its for breakfast, lunch, or dinner I always make sure what I am putting into my body is healthy and natural.
That’s why I decided to start making my favorite smoothies and bowls for myself almost everyday! It’s just so refreshing in the summer heat AND it’s so pretty to look at, especially this Berry Cherry Smoothie!
Another reason I love it so much is that it is very simple to make! There are only 5 ingredients that will give you all the flavors you need. Strawberries, blueberries, & cherries create the perfect combination. I make sure to use all frozen fruits except for strawberries from time to time depending on what I have stocked in the refrigerator. I personally love using frozen fruits because it provides a thicker and much cooler consistency that makes the smoothie 10x better.
Unlike my other smoothies, this particular drink has no bananas in the mix. I do love my frozen nanas but sometimes I crave a smoothie bursting with sweet berry flavors! So, if you aren’t a fan of bananas to begin with you’re in luck! This is the perfect power smoothie to get your energized for your day!
To add protein as well as a creamy texture, I add Greek yogurt. Greek yogurt is one of my fave ingredients to add into my smoothies! I typically use Dannon Light & Fit plain vanilla or coconut flavored yogurt, but the choice is yours! Choose the flavor that gets your salivary glands workin!
In addition, I use unsweetened almond milk to breathe life into the smoothie. I am not a huge fan of coconut water so I tend to stick with my almond milk. I chose unsweetened so it would be a healthier breakfast free of unnecessary bad sugars. Also, there isn’t much difference in the flavor! Either way, it is absolutely delish!!
I really hope you enjoy the Berry Cherry Smoothie as much as I did! It’s such a refreshing morning drink!

Cherry Limeade Smoothie
In the small town I grew up in, there was one main road down the middle of town and when we got a Sonic put in next to the gas station, it was a big deal. Watch out everybody, we’re big city now.
My favorite drink has always has been a cherry limeade. So refreshing, bubbly and perfectly tart and sweet. I especially love the cherry and squeezed limes at the bottom to nosh on once the drink is gone.
I don’t frequent Sonic much anymore (unless we get a serious craving for Peach Iced Tea), but a craving for something cherry and lime occasionally still persists. Enter: This smoothie. 5 ingredients, tart and sweet, and perfect as a healthy breakfast on the go.
It starts with loads of cherries and fresh lime juice for that quintessential cherry limeade flavor. Ripe nectarine adds creamy texture and a sweet touch that’s neutral but complements the cherries perfectly. Almond milk adds creaminess, while ice chills everything down.
It’s like a breakfast cherry limeade to-go. Yes, please.
This smoothie is like summertime in a glass. It’s
Vegan and gluten-free
& Highly portable
Most mornings we have a smoothie of some form for breakfast and I definitely see this making an appearance in our weekly rotation. Not to mention, it would make an awesome popsicle if you had leftovers. Just sayin’.
Hope you enjoy this smoothie as much as we have. If you make it, you know what to do: Snap a picture and tag it #minimalistbaker on Instagram so we can be cherry limeade buds. OK? K. Cheers!
