If you’ve been hesitant to try a green smoothie, this delicious Cherry Chocolate Smoothie is for you. It’s dairy-free and has the texture of a creamy chocolate milkshake!

Featuring sweet cherries, raw cacao, and creamy avocado, this smoothie is loaded with nutrition. I originally posted the recipe for it nearly 4 years ago, and it’s still one of my favorites!

Cherries are a natural and powerful anti-inflammatory, which may help to lower the overall risk factors for heart disease, including inflammation, body fat, and cholesterol. These anti-inflammatory qualities may also be beneficial for those with arthritis, and thanks to a hefty boost of antioxidants, cherries may also help regulate sleep cycles and fight free-radicals, possibly reducing the risk for cancer. The fact that they taste amazing in this shake is just bonus.

The sweet cherries and rich cocoa powder completely hide the “green” flavor and color in this smoothie, so no one will ever realize that it contains a sneaky serving of spinach and avocado in each sip. Fat soluble vitamins, such as vitamins A, D, E, and K, are assimilated better when consumed with a small amount of fat. So, you’ll benefit from all of the nutrition found in this shake thanks to the healthy monounsaturated fat found in avocado.

I’ll often use water to blend up this recipe in a pinch, but it’s extra-creamy if you use homemade almond milk. I hope you’ll enjoy this vegan Cherry Chocolate Smoothie as much as I do!
