Chocolate Cherry Smoothie

Chocolate Cherry Smoothie


This recipe has a lot of ingredients. The way to make this recipe easy is to know where the ingredients are. The cherries and bananas are in the freezer, of course. Keep a shelf in the pantry for the cocoa and, hemp, flax, and chia seeds. Have a shelf in your refrigerator for your greens. It becomes so easy to make in just a few minutes. This recipe is from the kitchen of Mark and Wanda Huberman, who adapted a recipe from Dr. Joel Fuhrman.
