Remember how I won 2nd in the fun Silk Bloggers Smoothie contest? Well, here’s the recipe…
Healthy eating doesn’t come easy to me. Nope. If I had it my way I’d incorporate chocolate into every meal – breakfast, lunch and dinner. (I have put chocolate chips on my eggs, so you know I’m sick.)
During my visit to the Silk team offices we had a smoothie making contest and my Chocolate Lover’s Delight Smoothie won 2nd place! It really was an unfair fight – I mean, dark chocolate is hard to beat!
This delicious treat is packed with anti-oxidants from the cocoa and cherries. It tastes like a rich, creamy chocolate shake but it’s only 200 calories!!

I used Silk Chocolate Almond Milk at home and the Chocolate Soy at the contest – so both work great. (You can see all the products on Silk.com)
Dark Chocolate Cherry Smoothie
1 cup chocolate almond or soy milk
3/4 cup frozen sweet cherries
1 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder (can be found in the baking section)
handful ice to your desired thickness
Blend. Drink. Delicious.
Question: Chocolate or Vanilla?
