Chocolate Covered Cherry Protein Shake
Rich and creamy Chocolate Covered Cherry Protein Shake recipe tastes like like a chocolate covered cherry in liquid form. You will forget you’re drinking a healthy milkshake!
Mr. Wishes is overly obsessed with fresh cherries! As in, he seriously has a problem and he needs help. They are his favorite fruit of all time and I am always trying to find creative ways to use them while they are in season. He plows through them like there they are going out of style so I have to get to them while I can!
He didn’t object to me using up some of his precious cherries for this bad boy. I have been all about the protein shakes lately. They are simply the best for meal replacements (like this peach pie version) or before/after a good workout. I made this chocolate covered cherry protein shake using the new Mighty Nut chocolate powdered peanut butter. This stuff is awesome! It’s the perfect blend of rich cocoa with their powdered peanut butter to add nutrients and deliciousness. The only combination that might be better than chocolate and cherry is chocolate and peanut butter. The powder adds lots of nutrients and is an easy way to add extra protein to shakes and smoothies. You can totally bake with it, also.
Cherries are loaded with antioxidants, beta carotene, vitamin C, potassium, magnesium, iron, fiber and all kinds of other good stuff. The chia seeds help to add a little extra protein to the smoothie as well as adding a healthy dose of omega-3’s. Are you sold yet?
I’m not even the word’s biggest chocolate fan (not even by a long shot), but I thought, “What goes better with cherries than chocolate?!” Nothing…the answer is nothing. The rich colors, the perfect taste – you just need this in your life. It’s the best tasting and best looking shake I have made thus far.
So get out your blender and whip up this sexy beast smoothie/shake…whatever you want to call it. Yes, I just called food “sexy”. Enjoy!
