  • For the smoothie bowl:
  • 2 cups frozen Montmorency tart cherries
  • 3/4 cup dairy free milk of choice (almond, coconut or oat milk), plus more to thin if necessary
  • 1 scoop your favorite protein powder (I like collagen peptides or plant based protein powder)
  • 1 tablespoons natural nut butter of choice (I love peanut, cashew or almond butter)
  • Optional: 1 tablespoon cacao powder for a boost of iron
  • For the optional toppings:
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1 tablespoon mini chocolate chips or cacao nibs
  • ½ tablespoon chia seeds
  • Drizzle of drippy nut butter
  • Granola if you’re feeling fancy
  • A few extra frozen tart cherries or dried tart cherries if you have some on hand!


  1. To make the smoothie bowl: add tart cherries, milk, protein powder, nut butter, and optional cacao powder to a high-speed blender. Blend on high until ingredients are well combined. You may need to add more milk, but since this is a smoothie bowl, we want it pretty thick. I think ¾ cup is perfect.
  2. Pour into a bowl and top with coconut flakes, chocolate chips, chia seeds and a few tart cherries. Enjoy! Serves 1.

Recipe Notes

Feel free to add 1-2 cups organic spinach to the smoothie if you want to get some greens in. The smoothie will likely turn a brownish color though.
