Chocolate Covered Cherry Power Smoothie

Smoothie Chocolate CherryPants has been putting in some extra hours finishing up a project lately. The poor guy was yawning through his cup of coffee last night, so I wanted to make him an extra-special energy smoothie to start off the week.

I love making this little number on birthdays or big exam days (it actually originated when I had a big exam on my birthday). The chocolatey goodness not only makes me feel totally spoiled, but also peps me up and keeps me going for hours!

Note: one look at the ingredients list will tell you this is NOT a light smoothie. Enjoy!
