What the Beck?

Recipe Review
Today’s Recipe and Location:   Chocolate-Covered Cherry Smoothie

I figured out that there are 155 calories per serving, if 5servings are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

         For someone who doesn’t eat cherries, I must say that I LOVE this dish. I think it didn’t make me itch, because it has a lot of milk and yogurt in it to lessen the acidity. I made five servings and can’t wait to have them for breakfast this week.  I love another new meal. (I also adore the chocolate grating on the top).

Here is what I need to prepare
this wonderful smoothie

It is such a pretty color and
that chocolate makes it so yummy.
