Acai Cherry Smoothie

 

This recipe is so simple you only need 5 ingredients and 5 minutes! It is perfect for those days you are in a rush and want something nutritious and filling. 

Both cherries and acai are  filled with antioxidants! I spoke about the benefits of the acai berry in my acai smoothie bowl recipe a few days ago.

Cherries…

  • reduce belly fat
  • support healthy sleep due to its levels of melatonin
  • lowers your risk of having a stroke

Basically add cherries to your diet (now)!

I also included chia seeds, because I try to add them to everything (seriously -everything). I decided to use coconut milk. I find it creamier and richer than almond milk and prefer it in my smoothies.

Acai Cherry Smoothie

I topped it off with coconut shreds, hemp seeds, walnuts and more fresh cherries! These are completely optional. I just like the fancy effect it gives, and honestly it makes for one bad ass instagram picture!

I hope you all enjoy this delicious smoothie as much as I did!
