Thick and creamy like a milkshake, this Banana Cherry Smoothie is super satisfying and refreshing at any time of day! It has the perfect amount of sweetness from the banana and apple juice, the perfect amount of creaminess from the Sunbutter and greek yogurt, AND the perfect amount of rich flavor from the dark cherries. It only takes a few minutes to throw together!
These Chocolate Cherry Protein Oats are the perfect example of what I refer to as “Instant Overnight Oats”. It’s simple: By adding plain greek yogurt into oats already prepared with water (along with your other ingredients), you get slightly cooled and creamy oats à la traditional Overnight Oats plus a bit of added protein! This Chocolate Cherry variety only requires 4 ingredients and takes less than 5 minutes to make!
Stir in the yogurt until creamy and evenly combined
Mix in the cherries
If you’re looking to enjoy the oats warm, fresh cherries would be recommended.
If you’d rather the oats be cooler like traditional Overnight Oats, the combination of using frozen cherries and cold yogurt will bring the temperature down. The warm oats will thaw the frozen fruit while transferring the chill into the rest of the bowl.
