Why I Love This Recipe

Everybody loves chocolate… -chocolate-covered cherries, chocolate-covered peanuts, chocolate ice cream. This luscious smoothie swirls all these flavors together into a smooth, creamy dessert drink. Seemingly decadent, sweet canned fruits offer convenient nutrition – with a simple way to fit more fruit into your day.


Ingredients You'll Need

1 can (15 ounces) dark sweet cherries in syrup
1 can (15 ounces) apricots in juice
1 1/2 cups chocolate ice cream or frozen yogurt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons chopped peanuts
Cinnamon stick, for garnish (optional)


Directions

Whirl the cherries, apricots, ice cream and cinnamon in a blender, just until smooth. Add peanuts; blend 5 seconds more. Serve immediately in tall glasses. Garnish with a cinnamon stick, if desired. Another serving option: serve the smoothie as a chilled dessert soup in a small bowl or stemmed glass.
