Chocolate Covered Cherry

I've never used cherries in smoothies yet because I eat so many of them raw, I just figured why bother. Pitting them is a pain. Then I remembered they sell them frozen. Game changer! This smoothie was okay, completely different in taste than anything else I'd been drinking lately because of the cacao. The flax and chia made it crunchy. Using coconut milk, adding tofu, yogurt or avocado (or marrying rich and buying a vitamix) would make it more smooth. Cherries mask the bitterness of kale pretty well. It was decent, but it needs work.

Chocolate Covered Cherry
2 cups sweet dark cherries
1 tablespoon unsweetened cacao powder
1-2 cups coconut water or coconut milk
2 cups kale
1 tablespoon flax seeds
1 tablespoon chia seeds
