Cherry Cacao Smoothie

Cherry Cacao SmoothieI have to admit, all I can think of on a hot summer’s day is a bowlful of frosty, creamy, you-know-what (ice-cream!!). What’s wrong with that? Nothing… except sugar and dairy are on my eat infrequently list. New Englanders are known for their love of ice-cream. There are at least 5 ice-cream and froyo stores in Harvard Square alone! What to do when temptation is everywhere? 

Luckily, this delicious Cherry Cacao Smoothie does a fine job of satisfying that craving. No ice-cream maker needed, just a blender, some ice and a love for chocolate. Although this recipe can be made without the cherries, they really are a delicious addition.
