Ingredients
  

  • 1 1/3 cup sour/tart cherries (or sweet cherries)
  • 1 banana (preferably frozen)
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate
  • 1 tbsp cacao powder (unsweetened and preferably raw)
  • 2 tbsp granola
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 20 almonds

Instructions
 

  • Wash and pit the cherries.
  • Put the cherries, the banana, cacao powder and granola into the blender jar and add 1/2 cup of almond milk. 
  • Chop the chocolate bar into smaller chunks and add to other ingredients.
  • Finally add the almond nuts into the blender jar. You can use the whole almonds if you don't mind small nut pieces in your smoothie. If you want to achieve a perfect smooth texture, grind the almonds before adding them to other ingredients. Run the food processor or coffee grinder until the almonds are ground to a coarse meal or fine flour, depending on your preference.
  • Process the ingredients until smooth.
  • Pour the smoothie into glasses. Sprinkle with dark chocolate and top up with a couple of cherries.
