Chocolate Covered Cherry Smoothie

This smoothie tastes as if a pint of juicy tart cherries were coated in a thick shell of sweet dark chocolate, frozen, and blended into a cool, frosty liquid, only it doesn't require nearly that much time or effort to make. Plus, despite its dessert-like delectability, it's completely appropriate for breakfast.

Notes

*CocoaVia® is a daily cocoa extract supplement that delivers the highest concentration of cocoa flavanols, which are scientifically proven to promote a healthy heart by supporting healthy blood flow†.
*The cocoa flavanols in CocoaVia® are backed by two decades of scientific research that suggests these powerful plant-derived nutrients from cocoa beans may play a valuable role in cardiovascular health.
*Chocolate is a fabulous treat, but it’s not a reliable way to get sufficient quantities of cocoa flavanols. Traditional cocoa processing, which includes drying, fermenting and roasting of beans, destroys many of the flavanols naturally present in the cocoa bean. CocoaVia®supplement isolates the “good stuff” in chocolate in a convenient, versatile form, without all the calories and fat.
