Breakfast Smoothie Ingredients

  • Frozen sweet cherries to make the smoothie naturally sweet
  • Unsweetened almond milk for creaminess
  • Plain yogurt (your choice as to what kind, I like goat milk yogurt or coconut milk yogurt) for more creaminess
  • Medjool dates or a small ripe banana for added natural sweetness
  • Cocoa powder or cacao for a super chocolatey flavor
  • Almond butter for a healthy fat
  • Baby spinach or baby kale for nutrition

Highlights

  • Frozen fruit is convenient and is naturally sweet and full of fiber and nutrition.
  • You can substitute dairy-free yogurt instead of regular yogurt for a vegan option. If you are sensitivities to cow’s dairy, try goat milk yogurt for a possible alternative. Or, go with a plant-based yogurt if you want make this recipe dairy-free.
  • This smoothie is sweetened with your choice of Medjool dates or bananas instead of refined sugar.
  • Sneak in a couple of handfuls of greens. I promise you won’t even taste them!

Top Tips

  • You can swap your favorite frozen fruit for the cherries. Strawberries make a great choice although the smoothie will be the sweetest using sweet frozen cherries.
  • Use dairy-free yogurt for a vegan option, although this will change the nutrition of the smoothie by reducing the protein.
  • Store leftovers in a tightly sealed container in the fridge for up to four days.
