Thirsty Thursday: Chocolate Covered Cherry Smoothie

Who doesn't love the combination of chocolate and cherries?  It is almost up there with peanut butter and chocolate.  This is a super refreshing fruit filled smoothie to satisfy your sweet tooth anytime of the day without any added sugar. Cherries can help promote sleep, lower inflammation in the body and help protect the body against cancer. Both cherries and bananas are great sources of potassium to help lower blood pressure. Unsweetened cocoa powder is a good source of fiber, iron and magnesium. Enjoy this as a mid day snack or as part of your breakfast. The healthy fats in the coconut milk will keep you full.
