Tasty Tuesday - Chocolate Cherry Smoothie

I just got back from the Type A Conference in Asheville, NC. As with all conferences, there were a ton of sponsors, many of whom were various companies who feed us throughout the time we're there. On Friday morning, Ovaltine provided a choice of four different smoothies invented by their Ovaltine Moms.

It's possible that I went back for seconds. I had never thought of using Ovaltine in a smoothie, let alone the Mocha Loco smoothie that was beyond delicious. Nonetheless it inspired me. Mister Man agreed, and I think the two of us have a new favorite smoothie flavor.


Chocolate Cherry Smoothie

Ingredients:
1 c plain Greek yogurt
1 1/2 c frozen cherries
3 T Ovaltine
1/4 milk

Directions:
Place all the ingredients in your blender, and the higher powered the blender, the better. Have I mentioned how much I love my Vitamix? Blend it starting on low then turn to the max. Keep going just until it's all blended. You may need to turn it off to scrape down the sides once or twice to ensure everything gets mixed together.


Serve immediately and enjoy. This makes four snack size portions.

Yum! Enjoy this and more with Tempt My Tummy Tuesday and Blessed with Grace and my newly discovered (oops, sorry, Rachel!) Mouthwatering Mondays.

PS No, I had no involvement from Ovaltine in this whatsoever. I was truly inspired, and they don't even know I'm posting this.

Greek yogurt is good for so many things. I use it for mac n cheese.

I am always 1 ingredient short! This time the Ovaltine. Sigh

Unknown Mami - That is really interesting. I have NEVER thought of using Greek yogurt for mac and cheese. I bet it would add a great tang. Hmmmm....

Lisa - It was awesome. I just used the last of our cherries for a berry crisp, but I need to get more to make more of this. Yum!

Heather - Oh you need Ovaltine in your house. It's one of the few chocolate like things without so many nasty ingredients in it. It's all I use for Mister Man - 1/4 t in a cup of milk, and he's good to go!

Kelly - Go get you some chocolate, Lady!
