Black Forest Smoothie

Black Forest Smoothie

Recently I posted my recipe for Cherry Vanilla Granola. Since I have dried cherries in the house now, I had this wunderbar (that’s “wonderful” in German 🙂 ) idea to make a smoothie that incorporated the flavors of a black forest cake. So here is my delicious result:

  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1/2 frozen banana
  • 1/4 cup dried tart cherries
  • 1/8 cup raw almonds
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla brown rice protein powder
  • 1 teaspoon cocoa powder

Place all ingredients into blender and blend until smooth. Guten Appetit!

  1. Sounds delicious! My kids love smoothies especially with fruit and nuts and I always, always, always have bananas in the freezer ready to go, we’ll give it a try!

      Me too! I love the consistency that frozen bananas give to smoothies.
