    Update 8 March: I absolutely love the guilt free indulgence this smoothie allows me to have. I chose not to use the stevia because I wanted it to be naturally sweetened by the cherries. Yum!!! Original: I am amazed at how delicious this was!! Minus the whipped cream it almost taste identical to a black forest cake!!!

    I used sweetened vanilla almond milk because I didn’t have stevia and even my picky teenager liked it. Great way to get some greens in him.  -  14 Apr 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This smoothie has a great flavor but it doesn't look very appealing. I cut the amount of cocoa powder to 1 1/2 table spoons and used a table spoon of organic agave nectar instead of the sugar substitute.  -  24 Mar 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
