Chocolate Covered Cherry Smoothie
When it comes to fruit, cherries are definitely in my list of favorites. And not just because they’re delicious. They contain tons of antioxidants, have anti-inflammatory properties and are low glycemic (won’t spike your blood sugar). In fact, they have a lower glycemic index (22) than blueberries (40) and other stone fruits like peaches and plums (42 and 39).
This makes them a perfect addition to your morning smoothies. Here’s a recipe I use quite often. My family and clients love it, too!
