This delicious Black Forest Smoothie (Chocolate Cherry Smoothie) is an easy plant based and vegan breakfast smoothie with protein, fruit, and raw chocolate to keep you full and satisfy your sweet tooth in a healthier way! With blended frozen cherries, the texture reminds me of a black forest ice cream shake, and this healthy breakfast actually tastes like dessert!




  1. Add ingredients to blender, and blend on high until desired consistency is reached!
  2. Enjoy!


To make blending easier with frozen cherries, blend all ingredients except cherries first; then add frozen cherries in gradually to make blending easy.

If using fresh or fully thawed cherries, cut the almond milk down to 1/2 C to start; add more as needed/desired.

Prep this smoothie in advance for a super easy breakfast! Add all ingredients to the blender, and place in the fridge overnight. Cherries will thaw slightly, making the smoothie easy to blend but a little less creamy. If you wish, prep everything but cherries the night before; then add frozen cherries in the morning for a shake-like black forest smoothie!
