Banana Split Smoothie


A banana split smoothie!  Inspired by a beautiful marriage of a chocolate craving and having a bunch of farmers-market-fresh cherries on hand.

1 1/2 C nut milk 

1/4 C oats

1 Tbsp cacao powder

1/4 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 C cherries, pitted 

2 bananas, frozen or ripe (use ice cubes if using ripe)

1 Tbsp maple syrup or agave

1-2 medjool dates as needed for sweetness (add more syrup if you don't have these)

1 Tbsp hemp seeds, optional (thickens it a bit and adds omegas/protein)
