Bok Choy Cherry Smoothie

Good morning Monday! Well I’m starting out November with a cold but that won’t deter me from my green smoothie fix.

This week I have for you a Bok Choy Cherry Smoothie. I got the idea to use bok choy from AndreaHood.com. I couldn’t find a recipe on her site but she posted a bok choy smoothie she made on instagram.

This smoothie actually looks like hot chocolate and that’s due to the frozen sweet cherries.

My post about being a smoothie newbie explains how those frozen sweet cherries are good but they make smoothies brown and sweet. 

If you are new to green smoothies you might want to add more very ripe banana or some sweetener of your choice.

I served this with sunflower seed bread topped with hazelnut spread. Have a great week!
