JASON WROBEL’S CHOCOLATE CHERRY SUPERFOOD PROTEIN SMOOTHIE RECIPE
This chocolate cherry superfood protein smoothie featuring Sunwarrior protein is the PERFECT beginner smoothie to introduce to your friends and family who may be new to blending. (Don’t have Sunwarrior yet? That’s ok, here are some other great protein powder options!) Cherries and chocolate are a heavenly combination in smoothies! We’d like to think this is a great cross between a nutrition drink and a delicious dessert, because why not have both?
This smoothie recipe is also way high in Vitamin B-12, you don’t even have to tell your kids and they will love it just as much as you do! (If you love this recipe make sure to check out Blender Babes’ Cherry Vanilla Crumble smoothie as well!).
A high power blender will handle those goji berries, but if using a “regular” blender just be sure to soak them first!
