Cherries and chocolate and coconut…sigh. Go easy on this one – it’s calorie-rich!


  • 11 1/2 cups unsweetened coconut milk
  • 1 tsp. coconut or vanilla extract
  • 2 very ripe bananas, sliced and frozen
  • 3 Tbsp. powdered unsweetened cocoa
  • liquid or powdered stevia (or your favorite sweetener), to taste
  • 1 15-ounce can pitted, tart cherries (packed in water, not syrup), drained well and frozen (or one 12-ounce bag frozen cherries)
  • A big handful of baby spinach
  • cacao nibs for topping, optional
  • toasted unsweetened coconut flakes for topping, optional


  1. Put everything (except the cacao nibs and toasted coconut flakes) in a high-speed blender in the order shown and blend until smooth! (If using both frozen bananas and cherries, you will need more liquid to get and keep the mixture moving.)
  2. Divide between four glasses and sprinkle with cacao nibs and toasted coconut flakes.
