Peanut and Chocolate Covered Cherry Smoothie
1 cup black cherry juice
1/4 cup peanut butter, smooth
4 oz vanilla Greek yogurt
1/2 small banana
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, ground
1 tsp honey, strained or extracted
4 tsp unsweetened cocoa
1 cup ice
Add all ingredients to blender and blend until smooth.
As an option, replace peanut butter, honey and cocoa with delicious dark chocolate peanut butter and nutrition facts would be slightly different.
