This Cherry Chocolate Chia Smoothie is a great vegan breakfast or healthy snack! Nutritious and delicious, this Chocolate Chia Smoothie is the perfect way to fuel your day.
I don't know about you, but I can find a way to enjoy chocolate with just about anything. (Remember that salad I did with a Chocolate Vinaigrette?!)
I'll have to say one of my favorite pairings is chocolate and cherries.
I can still remember eating chocolate covered cherries as a child. So delicious...and so sinful.
Today, we are going to enjoy chocolate and cherries together in a smoothie that you can feel good about.
A Cherry Chocolate Chia Smoothie to be exact!
Not only is it loaded with goodness from the cherries and chia seeds, but I've stepped it up a notch by making it with ALOHA Chocolate protein powder.
Not only is Aloha protein powder delicious, but it is also free of GMOs, gluten, dairy, soy and artificial ingredients. Plant based and organic, this is pure, powerful nutrition.
I love giving my body what it needs - superfoods to help superpower me!

In addition to protein powder, ALOHA also offers bars and other nutritional products. I try to never leave the house without a bar in my purse - you never know when you are going to end up starving and out later than expected. I love knowing I've got pure nutrition in my bag!
You can find the ALOHA products at Target, or you can subscribe at aloha.com and have the products delivered right to your doorstep.
Cherry Chocolate Chia Smoothie
- 2 tablespoons Chocolate Protein Powder or 1 scoop
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
- ¾ cup pitted cherries frozen works great
- 12 ounces almond milk

I'm all about cherry + chocolate in ANYTHING. Super psyched that cherry season is here!

I've heard SO many good things about Ahola. I need a new protein powder. I used to use my hubby's stuff and let's just say it's not great. This smoothie looks soooooo tasty!
The smoothie sounds and looks wonderful Wendy. You can't go wrong with chocolate cherry.
How do you always make a simple smoothie look so amazing Wendy? I'd never heard of Aloha, will definitely have to look into it.
Thsi sounds so good. I do love my chai.

Oh... I am going to have to find some frozen cherries! YUM! I will try this very soon!
Mmmmm, this looks like a recipe my whole family would enjoy! We're fans of chocolate anything!
I love cherry and chocolate together! It is my absolute favorite combination, in a smoothie sounds great!
Oh my goodness this is heaven! I have a son who loves everything chocolate, chocolate ice-cream, chocolate smoothies and I just know that he'll love this. I will have to try this for sure.

I love chocolate and I love cherries, but I've never tried anything with chia seeds before! This smoothie definitely sounds like it could be a healthier alternative to a milkshake 🙂
My mouth watered when I saw this. Yum, will be picking up some ingredients today.
I absolutely love cherries, especially when they are in season. This sounds so yummy!
This looks so yummy and good for you too. What a great way to start the day!
You do like chocolate! This does sound so delicious to drink right in the morning. I could even give this to my kiddos to get more protein in them!
I love using Ahola - I usually have chocolate smoothies to as they're so delicious. Would love to try your cherry version 🙂
This looks delicious! I hear that chia seeds keep you feeling full for a long time, too.
Oh how I must make this! You had me at cherries and chocolate!
I don't think I ever tried protein powder. I always assumed it would be full of preservatives. I will look for Ahola at Target.
I am not a fan of Chia at all but this sounds great. I will have to look for this protein powder.
We love smoothies at our house, but we've never used a protein powder. I usually use nut butters for healthy fats and proteins. Especially for the kids.
wow this sounds really good. I mean who doesn't love the chocolate and cherry combo? it's so good

I can't believe how creamy and rich this smoothie looks. I think it would be a great way to introduce Chia into my diet.
I am into protein shakes, so I am going to try this recipe for sure!
Omg this smoothie looks absolutely amazing!!!! I'm definitely going to be pinning your recipe to give it a try for myself!
Hope you enjoy it!
