chocolate cherry smoothie

Last week seemed to fly by.  My manuscript for the book is due next month and I’m hunkering down to finish it.   I’m knee-deep in desserts ( you know I’m making some killer desserts for you)  and I definitely am going to go on a sugar fast when this is over.   On Sunday I went to a book signing in St. Johns and got to meet my two friends Mickey from Paleo Autoimmune (The Autoimmune Paleo Cookbook)  and Arsy from Rubies and Radishes (The Paleo Foodie).  They both just released amazing books that you MUST buy!

Anyhow, it wasn’t until Friday that I remembered I hadn’t whipped up a recipe for Monday.  Again, I turned to the simplicity of a smoothie to share with you today.   Seriously, there is nothing better than a chocolate cherry smoothie and even better,  there is spinach and gelatin hidden inside for a boost of nutrition.
