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?
