Dark Cherry Smoothie Bowl

Cherry season is finally here, so I decided to celebrate by making this dark cherry smoothie bowl.

Chocolate and cherry is one of my favorite combinations and the ingredients take a starring role in this bowl. The coconut is a good supporting actor and the almonds add some crunch.

I’d never made a smoothie bowl with coconut water; usually I use almond milk or coconut milk. I was a little skeptical about what the end result would be, but it all turned out well. I might start using coconut water in more of my bowls, now. It gives the smoothie more of a sorbet or frozen yogurt texture.

Here is a song to celebrate the beginning of cherry season. Or, you know, just to listen to.

Dark Cherry Smoothie Bowl (slightly adapted from Downshiftology)


2 cups of frozen cherries, pitted
1 banana
¾ cup coconut water
whole cherries, coconut flakes, sliced almonds and raw cacao nibs for topping


Add the frozen cherries, banana and coconut water to a blender. Blend until smooth.

Pour the smoothie mixture into a bowl and top with the whole cherries, coconut flakes, sliced almonds and cacao nibs. Enjoy!
