  • 3 cups sliced frozen bananas
  • tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons ground chia seeds*
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup pitted and chopped fresh cherries (about 15 cherries)


  • In a food processor, combine the frozen bananas with the cocoa powder, ground chia, and vanilla. Process until fairly smooth. 
  • Add the pitted cherries, and pulse them into the mixture. Process until reaching your desired texture. Serve immediately, or freeze for 4 to 5 hours before enjoying. 


Want to make ground chia seeds at home? Just add chia seeds to a dry blender or coffee grinder, and blend until fine, like a powder. Store leftovers in an air-tight container.
