In honor of my Birthday Month of May, I have chosen on of my very favorite creations that is sure to satisfy that sweet tooth - The Chocolate Cherry Almond Smoothie, May Smoothie of the Month!
1 Scoop Chocolate Protein Powder
1 Cup Almond (or Chocolate Almond Milk for an even Richer Taste!) Milk

Benefits: Protein, Fiber, Healthy Fats, "Good" Carbs from Cherries, Good source of Vitamins E and B12 and Calcium (from Almond Milk) and thoroughly satisfies that sweet tooth or chocolate craving.
