We love this dessert! Great with banana or berries instead of cherries too.

Serves 2


1/2 cup vanilla soy, hemp, or almond milk

1 tablespoon natural cocoa powder

4 dates, pitted

1 1/2 cups dark sweet frozen cherries

[We added 1/2 cup of ice for extra creamy goodness]


Blend all ingredients in a high-powered blender until smooth and creamy. If using a regular blender, add only half the cherries and blend until smooth, then add the remaining cherries and continue to blend.

Variation: Use berries or banana instead of cherries. Freeze ripe bananas at least 24 hours in advance. To freeze, peel, cut into thirds, and wrap tightly in plastic wrap.
