The perfect Summer Cherry Coconut Chocolate Smoothie!

Midwest summer storms, SUCK!  Don’t get me wrong I love the calm before a rip-roaring thunderstorm.  The smell in the air, the way the wind starts to pick up and the trees are swaying, but what I do not like, really, really do not like, is when I lose my electricity.  Now I am not talking a quick flicker of the lights or a 30 minute loss, I am talking an over night past 24 hour loss.  Please note that I said Midwest SUMMER, yep you know 90° and oh say 1000% humidity.

Not to complain too much, I always like to be a bit positive, we have a small generator, so the refrigerators were hooked up and no food was lost in the summer of 2015 power outage.

Now that is off my chest, on to this delicious, refreshing, addicting smoothie.  These pictures were actually taken the morning of power outage, so good thing I got them in when I did.  Can’t really make a smoothie without a blender.

Why Cherries are the perfect fruit to add to your Smoothie.

I swear I can not walk past the cherries at the grocery store without grabbing a bag.  They are just so darn gorgeous!

Problem is I really don’t need a whole bag, I really only want half the bag, but it’s not like you can reach in and remove half of them.  So, what better way to use cherries than a smoothie. Not only are they so healthy for you, packed with fiber and antioxidants, but tart cherries are known to help with inflammation.  Which is perfect for after you workout when you want a quick recovery.

I love a smoothie that is loaded with protein after my workout, it is great for my recovery and keeps my hunger under control until my next meal.

When do you like to enjoy your smoothies?  Morning, afternoon, after or before your workout?
