Oh hey there new breakfast best-friend! Ya, I’m talking to this Chia Chocolate Cherry Banana Smoothie.

This rich, chocolatey, cherry-centric smoothie loaded with chia seeds, chocolate chips, cocoa powder, frozen strawberries, frozen banana, fresh cherries, and a splash of almond milk and maple syrup.

It’s hard to tell whether this dairy-free, naturally Paleo smoothie is a dessert or just a fabulous vitamin C-filled breakfast smoothie (or anytime of the day smoothie), which is not a problem in my book.

FYI- one serving of this smoothie contains 80% of your daily recommended value of vitamin C.

How to make this Chia Chocolate Cherry Banana Smoothie:

It’s so so easy to put together, that it may become part of your regular breakfast (or dessert) routine.

All you have to do it put 1 frozen banana, ½ cup of pitted fresh cherries, 1 cup of frozen strawberries, 1/4 cup almond milk, 1/2 Tbs maple syrup, 1 Tbs chia seeds, 1 Tbs cocoa powder, and 1 Tbs enjoy life chocolate chips into a blender and mix.

That’s it! And you have this delicious cherry chocolate smoothie ( those are the only two flavors I can taste, despite everything else inside) all to yourself!

I used fresh cherries here because I find the flavors to be more powerful than frozen ones. I also think using a frozen banana is key because it really adds a nice creaminess to the smoothie, which works so well with the flavor of chocolate. YUMM.
