I have a confession to make: I’m newly addicted to all things containing cherry. It started last week when I had an iced nonfat dark cherry mocha at Starbucks. So, while I didn’t take many food pictures this week, I do have some of the cherry variety.
Cha-Cha Cherry from Arden’s Garden- it had cherries, pineapple, and mango in it. Surprisingly, it wasn’t too sweet, but it did have pulp in it.
White chocolate cherry bread from Great Harvest – you guys, this was amazing. So decadent and dessert-like… in Tobey’s words, “It’s not really bread.”
Up close… do you see the melty white chocolate? It was just out of the oven.
The original culprit- a tall, iced nonfat dark cherry mocha… you must try it! The cherry flavor isn’t artificial tasting at all, and the drink itself isn’t overwhelmingly sweet.
Kashi dark cherry chocolate bar:
I used the whole bag of cherries in this next picture… oops! Sugar overload?
Following Caitlin’s lead, I blended together:
- 1 cup almond milk
- 2 cups spinach
- 15 frozen cherries
- 1 tbs reduced-sugar Nesquik
- 1 small banana
There are another 15 or so blended cherries on top… I told you that I’m addicted! This was perfect after a long walk outside, but next time, I would probably leave the chocolate powder out.
And one more… a chocolate covered cherry on top of milk chocolate frozen yogurt.
WOW- that was a lot of cherries! We’ll see if I can maintain my cherry intake this week, or if I’ll be dealing with cherry burn-out.
Do you like the cherry + chocolate combo, or does fruit + chocolate not do it for you? What two things do you love combining?
