Cold, smooth drinks during the hot summer?… this sure beats the flavor of a soda pop! I have found a low-fat, quick and easy and way to, simple to make recipes…

2 tablespoons cocoa powder (I used the NOW brand, certified organic.)
1 tablespoon Lucuma powder (I used Navitas Naturals, certified organic.)
2 tablespoons tart cherry concentrate (I’ll be sharing an in-depth post on this soon – this stuff changed. my. life!)
1 frozen banana
4 ice cubes
1/2 to 1 cup of almond milk (I started with a 1/3 cup and added a little more – but with 1/3 cup, it was more like raw ice cream!)
Toss ingredients in blender and blend until smooth.
Pour into a glass and enjoy this rich, decadent drink!
Note: I’m used to the tart cherry concentrate but it might be a bit strong for you if you aren’t. This smoothie is really, really chocolatey and the tart cherry shines through nicely. It’s not bitter, it’s delish! But if you aren’t a fan of even a slight bit of tartness, you may want to balance out the smoothie with either more sweetener, less tart cherry concentrate – or just use sweet cherries.
