Black Forest Smoothie

Rich chocolate and sweet cherries combine to make one of the most decadent desserts out there: black forest cake. Unfortunately, commercial varieties of this sweet treat (which happens to use two healthy, antioxidant-filled whole foods) may be tarnished with heavily processed ingredients, additives, white sugar, and more. Why not try a healthier alternative? And yes, it'll satisfy your sweet tooth! All-natural cacao powder, or chocolate in its most natural and raw form, contains antioxidant flavonoids, while cherries are full of anti-inflammatory compounds. With an added date for sweetness, you'll love the taste and, even better, you'll feel great drinking it.
