  • 450 grams fresh cherries

Wash and dry the cherries, and remove all the pits. Place in a freezer bag or glass container, and freeze for at least three hours. If you don't have the time, you can use frozen cherries.

Peel a banana, and place half in the freezer.

Pour 60ml of the almond milk into ice cube trays (save the other 60ml) and freeze those as well, for at least three hours.

Place the frozen cherries, half a frozen banana, the almond-milk ice cubes, and 60ml almond milk in a food processor, and process until completely smooth, several minutes.

Stir in chocolate chips. You can enjoy this immediately!
