Vegan MoFo Day 3: Cafe 118 Divine Cherry Smoothie

Hello my friends!! Happy Hump Day! I guess Thursday is my new hump day as I work Tuesday through Saturday but for normal people it’s all smooth sailing from here :)

Today’s super simple recipe recreation is for a super simple smoothie. I’ve never tried it but it definitely caught my eye on the Cafe 118 menu! Cafe 118 is a raw food restaurant in Orlando. I found it when my friend and I were taking a stroll in the really cute Park Avenue neighborhood on one of my previous trips to Orlando (in February I believe). The area is so cute with tons of great restaurants and shops. Hidden up a side street is one of the few raw restaurants I’ve heard of in the Orlando area. We didn’t eat there since we had already eaten but I grabbed a menu with the plan to recreate some of their delicious dishes and drinks.

Isn’t it gorgeous?!

I woke up this morning not feeling super hungry and also with the plan to try and get some prep work done for future recipes. I decided to keep breakfast simple and for that, I decided a 3 ingredient smoothie would be perfect. I knew that the Divine Cherry Smoothie from Cafe 118 would do the trick.

Frothy and frosty, a perfect treat!

It has a pretty similar flavor profile to my Cherry Chocolate Smoothie but has even fewer ingredients. I used some of my fresh cherries that I froze over the summer :) Here is my “recipe.” I feel bad calling it a recipe because it is 3 ingredients and so easy but here ya go!

Cafe 118 inspired Divine Cherry Smoothie

Ingredients:

1 cup frozen cherries

3/4 cup Unsweetened Chocolate Almond Milk

1/2 tablespoon Coconut Butter (I used Artisana)

Directions:

Put all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth and frothy. Enjoy!

Thanks Cafe 118 for the inspiration! I plan on making more of their drinks and smoothies in the future. This is such a treat, you can definitely have this as a sweet treat for dessert too. Or put it into molds and freeze into a popsicle ;)

As I discussed on Monday, I participated in a Birthday Care Package Swap with the lovely Gabby of the Veggie Nook. You can check out the package I sent her here!

Hope you all have a great day! I did lots of prep today so hopefully it’ll be easier for me to get meals together over the next few days. I’m looking forward to what I have planned over the next few days :)
