I know there are a lot of recipes for chocolate-cherry smoothies out there, so maybe you already have a favorite.  I whipped this up in such a hurry, I wasn’t expecting anything great.  My smoothies are hit or miss.  They’re always good enough to drink but it’s not too often that I make a WOW smoothie.

I used a light bounce placed to the left, in the rest of the photos, with the light coming from the right.  You can definitely tell a difference from the above photos!
