Recipe Redux: Chocolate Cherry Frosty

The theme of this month’s Recipe Redux is “Chocolate Love Is In The Air.” In honor of Valentine’s Day, yummy, indulgent chocolate recipes are in high demand this month. The challenge this month was to complement chocolate with some other good-for-you foods to make a delicious and healthy treat. “We’re creating recipes that will make the heart grow fonder – and stronger.” 

When I read this month’s theme, I started to think of some of my favorite chocolate and fruit combos – chocolate covered strawberries, chocolate covered bananas, chocolate covered cherries. Cherries. I just so happened to recently buy a bag of frozen dark sweet cherries that I was going to use for smoothie making. Smoothies. Chocolate. Cherries. Now the wheels were turning…

Enter, the Chocolate Cherry Frosty. First step was making my own homemade chocolate sauce. I followed this recipe but used 1.5 cups sugar instead of 2 cups. 

Chocolate Cherry Frosty

1.5c frozen dark sweet cherries

1c coconut milk

1/4c plain Greek yogurt (I used Chobani)

1 tbsp chocolate syrup

1/2 banana

Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.

Optional: Eat with a spoon to get the full frosty effect.

Peace, love, and food,

Kara
