Double-Dark-Chocolate-Covered-Cherry-Crunch SMOOTHIE! (wow, that’s a mouthful:) For some reason, I crave those frozen unsweetened dark sweet cherries this time of year. They are so filled with antioxidants and naturally sweet. Put them in a smoothie with chocolate protein powder and chia seeds…..and you have an AMAZING tasting filling & nutritious smoothie!
