Chocolate Covered Avocado, Cherry, & Blueberry Super Chill Smoothie

A delicious smoothie filled with fruity deliciousness.
Happy first day of summer everyone!
With the start of summer finally here (though the weather certainly beat solstice to a sweltering punch!), it is time to make ice creams and popsicles and smoothies galore!
This featured blended chilly treat combines bananas, Rainer and sweet dark cherries with divine cocoa, enticing Medjool dates, and creamy avocado for a thick, sinfully ice cold treat that trickles down sun parched throat as a much needed elixir and temporary reprieve from ninety degree humidity.
Stored inside of an empty Spectrum Organic Coconut Oil container and not classic mason jar, I have truly enjoyed becoming an economical spendthrift recycle savvy vegan by reusing these to house homemade beauty products and beverages. Their fourteen ounce size seems to be the ideal weight and thankfully sticky label peels away without fuss.
However, with sexy plump cherries on top, yummy smoothie still tastes just as blissful in a good ole tall glass straight from the kitchen cabinet (or dishwasher!). 

Chocolate Covered Avocado, Cherry, & Blueberry Smoothie Ingredients and Preparation

2 frozen bananas
10 pitted cherries
1/3 cup blueberries
1?2 cup almond milk
1/3 cup cocoa
4 Medjool dates, pitted and finely chopped
1 ripened avocado
1 teaspoon vanilla
pinch of cinnamon

Grind bananas inside blender or food processor.
Add remaining ingredients and blend until smooth and slightly chunky.
Pour into a glass, top with desired fruit, and enjoy outside with the sun rays.
