This was a pleasing combination for our breakfast smoothie. Like most smoothies, there is a lot of flexibility to use what you have on hand, or what is in season, or local, or whatever floats your life preserver.:-) The basic ingredients are the cherry cider (found mine at Trader Joe's) and the chocolate or cocoa powder. I've been using a chocolate flavored protein powder lately, and it is a nice thickening agent as well as a good cocoa flavoring for my smoothies. Feel free to add other nutritional supplements. I like to add some combination of flax seed, bee pollen, spirulina, chia seeds, vitamin and mineral powders, etc.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 cups cherry cider
  • 2 tablespoons chocolate protein powder
  • 2 cups ice
  • 1 cup kale or 1 cup spinach or 1 cup other leafy greens
  • 1 apples or 1 kiwi or 1 pear

Directions

  1. Add all to your blender and blend until smooth. Taste, and adjust the balance of cherry and chocolate to taste. Bananas and dates are great sweeteners if needed.
