Black Cherry Protein Smoothie

Black Cherry Smoothie 2

I call this a black cherry protein smoothie, because I decided to mix blackberries and cherries together. It gives this drink a glorious deep purple color. Smoothies are wonderful to enjoy year round. You can vary the ingredients by season or by what is available in the market or your garden. There are numerous tings I  love about this smoothie, you would never know there is cauliflower in it, it tastes delicious, its protein rich due to the addition of vanilla protein powder which adds an additional 20 grams of protein!

Take a look at these infographics and you’ll soon learn why I chose these nutritious and healthy ingredients!
