Cherry Cacao Smoothie With Coconut

This summer I finally tasted farm-fresh cherries for the very first time. I was smitten with their sweetness! Ever since then, I've been on a kick to soak in every moment of the cherry season that summer has to offer.

This recipe is my new favorite — the sweetness of the cherries compliments so well the richness of cacao. The coconut adds an exotic twist and a creamy texture. Plus, the taste of the added greens is barely noticeable, making this the perfect healthy smoothie for kids, too!
