Tart Cherry Recovery Smoothie
Tart cherries are an awesome anti inflammatory food and are a wonderful post workout carb source. This smoothie is perfect for after a hard workout, or as a dessert.
1/2 cup frozen tart cherries
1 teaspoon chia seeds
1 scoop protein powder
3/4 cups almond milk
Blend all ingredients until smooth.
*I used a vanilla protein powder here, but this may be just as delicious with chocolate. Choose any liquid you like. I chose almond milk, but feel free to use whole milk for more calories, or water for less!
You could also use less liquid and make a thicker mixture to use in a smoothie bowl. Top with more cherries, shredded coconut and nuts of your choice!
