We couldn’t let EF Smoothie week end without another chocolate smoothie—I would never allow such a thing. I’ve loved getting to come up with so many creative smoothie recipes for you guys (while keeping fruit out of the equation for the most part.) but I have to say I’m looking forward to going back to cooking and photographing more solid foods. There are only so many ways to take a picture of a smoothie before you get a bit bored.

 

Confession real quick: I’ve never had a Black Forest cake. Or a Black Forest anything. But I mean… chocolate and cherries are a pretty basic flavor combo to master even if you’ve never had the cake. So i think it’s safe to say these are legit Black Forest smoothies, ya know?

 

Oh! I totally just realized today was Valentines Day. It’s not a day that’s really on my radar…like ever. But I’m so proud of myself for making a chocolate recipe for today. I’m really getting the hang of this blogging thing. I should quit my day job.

What you need to make Black Forest Collagen smoothies:

  • Creamy coconut milk (or dairy free milk of choice)
  • Frozen cherries – for that black-forest-esque taste!
  • Frozen riced cauliflower – this helps thicken the smoothie without adding junk!
  • Cocoa powder – again to help with the Black Forest taste
  • A fresh, soft date (soak your date for a minute if its a bit dry)
  • Collagen protein – I love Great Lakes or Vital Proteins!
  • Ice cubes to thicken the smoothie and make it a cold treat!
  • Whipped coconut cream chocolate chips, and cherries for topping because every day deserves a kick ass smoothie with presentation.

Tips for making these Black Forest Collagen smoothies:

 

  • Buy frozen cherries so they’re already pitted. No one has time to pit their own cherries for days.
  • Making some good homemade whipped cream to top these off with—I make mine with chilled coconut cream and it’s perfection.
  • Make sure you’re using riced FROZEN cauliflower. Not fresh or cooked!
