Dark Chocolate Cherry Smoothie

IMG_0020

Research shows that drinking tart cherry juice can aid in muscle recovery. Cherries are known for their anti-inflammatory properties which prevent muscle damage. A little cocoa powder gives this delicious smoothie a touch of chocolate behind every sip. If you want to increase the protein content, try adding chocolate protein powder instead of the cocoa powder.
