I like to think of myself as the Queen of Eggs.
I could eat them for every meal of the day. I’ve always been like this. My Mom always reminds me of the time when I ate 8 whole eggs for breakfast one day as a child.
Meg the Egg Monster was my name.
While I may be egg obsessed, Lisa is definitely smoothie obsessed and she’s kind of rubbed off on me actually…
My love for smoothies has definitely grown over the past few weeks and I definitely think it has something to do with Lisa and her daily smoothie pictures and recipes!
Although I may never be the Queen of Smoothies and only ever hold the title of being the Queen of Eggs, I hope you enjoy the smoothie recipe I’ve created for you today.
It’s thick, just the way I like my smoothies and it’s definitely nutrient packed, too!
Choco Cherry Coconut Protein Smoothie
1 cup coconut milk
6 ice cubes
1 cup frozen pitted cherries
1 scoop protein powder (I like using vanilla)
1 spoonful cocoa powder
1 spoonful coconut butter
I’ve been obsessed with cherries lately, so this is definitely my go to smoothie lately! Cherries can be called a “super food” as they are packed with anthocyanins, which is an antioxidant which aids in the reduction of heart disease and cancer. Cherries also contain melatonin, which helps regulate sleep cycles. They are a great fruit to have post workout as they aid in the reduction of muscle soreness!
So, go ahead and enjoy yourself some cherries!
