Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes
2 cups chocolate soy or almond milk
2 cups pitted black cherries
2 scoops chocolate protein powder
2 tablespoons almond butter
Pro Tip: If you can’t stand pitting fresh cherries, you can use frozen cherries and just add extra liquid and omit the ice.
1. Place cherries, milk, banana, almond butter, chocolate protein powder and ice into blender and blend until smooth. (If shake is too thick, pour in more milk.)
2. Divide between two large glasses and serve.
