MogoBlog MogoLicious Tasty Tip. Can’t help ourselves. Whenever we can make chocolate an appropriate breakfast choice, we’re all in.

Ingredients for Dark Chocolate Cherry Chai Protein Smoothie:

  • 2 cups frozen pitted dark cherries
  • 1 cup plain greek yogurt (I like 2% the best)
  • 1/2 cup milk (I’m currently obsessed with cashew milk)
  • 1/2 cup ice
  • 3 tablespoons hemp hearts
  • 2 tablespoons almond butter
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened dutch process cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • half of the chai spice mixture below
  • pinch of salt
  • for topping: hemp heart sprinkles, frozen cherries, chocolate curls

Ingredients for Chai Spice:

  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice

Directions for Dark Chocolate Cherry Chai Protein Smoothies:

  1. Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until pureed.
  2. Taste and if desired, add more chai spice! If you want your smoothie sweeter, you can add a pitted date or two. I find that the frozen cherries I buy (from Trader Joes) are pretty sweet and get the job done.
  3. Top the smoothie with extra hemp heart sprinkles, another cherrie or two, a few shakes of the chai spice and if desired, chocolate curls!
