Chocolate Cherry Smoothie

Beth Renzetti


Using cherries native to the Pacific Northwest, no sugar added, naturally sweetened with the cocoa powder, and super filling because of the oats and chia seeds, this is a fast, simple, and delicious quickie meal or snack!

Not only does it taste great but there are added health benefits too. Chia has been proven to boost energy, stabilize blood sugar, lower cholesterol, and aid in digestion.
