Chia Cherry Smoothie Recipe

This chia cherry smoothie recipe — created by blogger, How Sweet Eats — takes very little effort to prepare. It’s the perfect summer smoothie for a hot afternoon or breakfast alternative! Cherries have always been a favorite, ever since I was a little kid. They make for one of the best snacks on their own, but I’ve loved them in smoothies for years.

The base of this Cherry-Oh! Cherry smoothie? A delicious chia pudding. If you love the texture of tapioca, chia pudding is similar, healthier and quicker to prepare. Make the chia pudding 30 minutes ahead of time so it can set. You can even put the chia pudding in the fridge overnight for a smoothie breakfast. If your chia has sat overnight, you’ll probably need a spoon to enjoy the next day. And what I really love about smoothies: the toppings! Fresh cherries, some extra chia for a little crunch, maybe some yogurt if you’d like or even chopped chocolate. It’s a breakfast dream.
