Cherries Jubilee Post- Workout Smoothie

I have a new favorite post workout smoothie that I want to share with you. I have named it “Cherries Jubilee” because it tastes exactly like my favorite Baskin Robbins ice cream that I used to get when I was a kid – but it’s better! This is a dairy free, gluten free, protein packed treat that I look forward to after a workout. Give it a try!
