They say that chocolate milk is the perfect running recovery drink. I say add a little cherries, coffee and ice and then it’s perfect.
CHERRY MOCHA SMOOTHIE
1/2 cup of crushed ice
1/2 cup frozen cherries (you could use fresh, if you want to sit there and pit them!)
1 packet of Starbucks Via or 1/2 cup extra strong coffee (i.e. 3T coffee grinds in a French Press with 1/2 cup water)
1t cocoa powder
1/2 cup milk
1t stevia extract or maple syrup
2-3 drops almond extract (this is optional, but wow, it’s good!)
Blend together in a blender until the ice is crushed and your drink has a slushy consistency.
