This smoothie is a great way to start the day with low calories as well as being delicious. I have never been a regular milk drinker, but I love the Silk Milk line. They come in all different flavors, such as almond and coconut. One of my favorites is the Dark Chocolate Silk Milk. It gives a dessert feel to any breakfast smoothie without all of the guilt.
Here in Washington there are Rainier cherries which are local to the region. To me they have a little bit of a sweeter taste than traditional cherries and are pretty to look at. I have opted to use a Rainier cherry blend in my smoothie, but using traditional cherries is okay also.

I have been drinking this smoothie almost daily this Summer and miss it when I don't get to blend it up in the mornings. The cherries blend so well with the Dark Chocolate flavor and give you a nice energy boost. What is your favorite flavor of Silk Milk?
