Chocolate Covered Cherries Smoothie

Sometimes I miss my favourite ice cream flavour – Ben and Jerry’s Cherry Garcia — black cherry and vanilla. Oh, wow, is it good. BUT, since it’s not a choice for a diabetic or someone whose completely lactose intolerant, I had to find another way.

I have found that with a little imagination, I can replicate many of the foods I used to enjoy, but were not healthy choices. This smoothie may not exactly be Ben and Jerry’s Cherry Garcia, but it does hit the spot.
