I just got back from the Type A Conference in Asheville, NC. As with all conferences, there were a ton of sponsors, many of whom were various companies who feed us throughout the time we’re there. On Friday morning, Ovaltine provided a choice of four different smoothies invented by their Ovaltine Moms.
It’s possible that I went back for seconds. I had never thought of using Ovaltine in a smoothie, let alone the Mocha Loco smoothie that was beyond delicious. Nonetheless it inspired me. Mister Man agreed, and I think the two of us have a new favorite smoothie flavor.
Chocolate Cherry Smoothie
1 c plain Greek yogurt
1 1/2 c frozen cherries
3 T Ovaltine
Place all the ingredients in your blender, and the higher powered the blender, the better. Have I mentioned how much I love my Vitamix? Blend it starting on low then turn to the max. Keep going just until it’s all blended. You may need to turn it off to scrape down the sides once or twice to ensure everything gets mixed together.
Serve immediately and enjoy. This makes four snack size portions.
PS No, I had no involvement from Ovaltine in this whatsoever. I was truly inspired, and they don’t even know I’m posting this.
