HEALTH BENEFITS OF CHERRIES
Adding cherries to your diet can decrease the pain associated with arthritis and gout. They also contain powerful antioxidants that help fight cancer. For the ones with the most flavonoids, choose the deep purple ones over the bright red ones. Cherries contain melatonin, so they may help you sleep. Have a few before bed, just make sure it’s not right after dinner since fruit should always be eaten on an empty stomach.

Hi.i’m yun from indonesia.can i replace the vega one chocolate with cocoa powder? If it’s possible,how to make it? I don’t think can find vega1choc in my country. But would like to try making it. Thanks.
Hey Yun! You can replace the Vega One chocolate protein with any chocolate protein powder – it will give you much more nutrition than just cocoa powder. If you only have cocoa powder though, start with 1 tablespoon and then add more to taste if needed. 🙂 HAPPY BLENDING!
Omg … Chocolate cherry HEAVEN!!! It’s so good, if I could fit another one down I TOTALLY would! 😉
