Yes! A chocolate smoothie can be healthy!!!
Chocolate contains antioxidants that can be beneficial for hearth health. The darker the better, as research shows its high antioxidant power can play an important role fighting clog formation in your arteries. The cherries in this recipe also provide antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. Strawberry and banana add additional flavor and sweetness. Making this with chocolate milk also makes it higher carb with protein, which makes it a great post-exercise or post-run smoothie. You can substitute regular milk, or soy milk etc if you desire.
