CHERRY CHOCOLATE CHEER

This family-friendly cherry & chocolate smoothie is certain to put a smile on everyone's face.

Cherries are little red gems rich in vitamins, minerals, fibre and antioxidants such as anthocyanins.  Research suggests that cherry consumption can help to reduce inflammation as well as the risk of cancer and Alzheimer's.  Cherries are a natural source of melatonin, which helps to promote healthy sleep and induce a sense of calm.
