    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!!! Thanks for sharing  -  02 Feb 2016  (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)

    Next time I make this, I will put the spinach into the measuring cup loosely, rather than packed. I will also decrease the cocoa a little bit. The cocoa and spinach flavors overpowered the cherries. I believe they also created the brownish green appearance rather than thedailygourmet's lovely purple that she got.  -  18 Mar 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
