Chocolate Covered Cherry Smoothie

Happy Valentine's Day!

Smoothies are a big hit around here for breakfast. It is so easy to throw some yogurt, a little milk, frozen fruit in and you have an instant healthy breakfast, on the go. Well, since it is Valentine's day, I had to add a little chocolate and some vanilla extract to sweeten it up. If you prefer strawberries, I think they would be an equally delicious substitute.

These are the perfect way to wake up, but I am sure it would be excellent as an after-school snack or a dessert!

First, place the yogurt, milk, syrup, vanilla, and cherries in a blender.
