Description

This dark cherry smoothie bowl is topped with whole cherries, coconut flakes, almond slices and raw cacao nibs for a sweet, crunchy breakfast.  Oh, yes – a cherry smoothie bowl! As you know from my pitaya smoothie bowl and mango smoothie bowl, I’ve become slightly obsessed with smoothie bowls. They’re actually one of my new favorite things. Not only are they scrumptious, they’ve really become a creative outlet. I mean, look at how much fun you can have designing the top. It’s a smoothie bowl piece of art! I also love how cherry picking season signals the beginning of summer. And ya’ll know I LOVE summer! In years past I would drive up to my parent’s place (as they’re surrounded by cherry orchards) and pick bucket loads of cherries. Then I’d eat a bunch (until I achieved cherry overload) and freeze the rest for future recipes. But this year was unfortunately a cherry picking bummer. The drought in California did massive damage to the cherry farms. Instead of being open for several weeks, the cherry farms were only open for a couple of days this year before all cherries were gone. Poor little trees. But thankfully I was able to pick some fresh, organic cherries before the trees were wiped clean. So first item on the menu? A dark cherry smoothie bowl of course! Cherries are loaded with antioxidants and polyphenols that help fight disease, as well as vitamin C and fiber. They’re also a natural food source of melatonin, which can help to improve your sleep. Good stuff. But I will say this, they’re also fairly high in sugar. So as is the case with all my smoothie bowl recipes, I wouldn’t recommend eating them every day. But for a once a week smoothie bowl splurge, this recipe is simply divine! For toppings on this recipe I chose more cherries (’cause they’re pretty!), coconut flakes, sliced almonds and raw cacao nibs (another superfood). But feel free to get creative with what you have on hand. Enjoy!
