You will love the combination of chocolate and cherry in this Chocolate Cherry Chill Protein Smoothie. Cherries are a great addition to a daily protein smoothie for their many health benefits.
Cherries contain fiber, vitamins C, carotenoids and have the highest antioxidant level of any fruit which helps the body fight free radicals. Sweet cherries have a low glycemic index, lower than peaches, blueberries and plums and they contain many anti-inflammatory compounds that may help to relive pain from osteoarthritis and can even reduce muscle damage after strenuous exercise. They are also a good source of melatonin which regulates sleep cycles.
For a vegan option try making this Chocolate Cherry Chill Protein Smoothie with our NEW Organic Vegan Boomer Nutrition Chocolate Protein Powder (I recommend adding half a banana for the best flavour) or stick with our original Boomer Nutrition ENERGY Chocolate Whey Protein Powder for a creamier version.
When made with Boomer Nutrition Protein Powders you get the added benefit of B Vitamins for energy and added leucine for muscle recovery and preservation, an important part of slowing age-related muscle loss.
For added chocolate flavour, make with unsweetened chocolate almond or rice milk or add a tbsp of unsweetened cocoa powder.
