I debated whether I should even put up a photo of this smoothie. Other than showing off my 3D sea turtle cup (which you can’t even tell on a photo), there’s really no point. All my smoothies with Spinach in them look the same! A muddy looking brown color =)
Original recipe from Nature’s Bounty*
- 1 scoop chocolate protein powder
- 1/4 cup tart cherry juice
- 3/4 cup skim milk
- 1/2 cup frozen cherries
- 2 cups spinach
- 1 cup ice cubes

I LOVE the flavor of cherry and I LOVE chocolate, so this smoothie called to me! It was super delicious, too!
*I’m not sure why the Nature’s Bounty recipe uses 2 scoops protein, it may be that their protein powder is less calories/protein per scoop? I’ve never used it so I’m not sure, but my smoothie was fine w/ 1 scoop.
