Black-Forest-Smoothie

So, my goddesses have been looking for a sexy and yummy way to make their smoothie’s something to look forward to and this recipe will deliver on both taste and health benefits… Enjoy this smoothie post workout, before bed, at breakfast or heck, just about anytime of day! Dark cherries are great for moontime issues as they are known to help you sleep and stay asleep which can make this time of month easier. Cherries, which are members of the same fruit family as peaches, plums, apricots, and almonds, are often regarded as a “dessert” fruit for use in pies, or perhaps as a garnish for cocktails (the maraschino cherry).
