Choc Cherry Bomb
Prep: 5 min
+ 2 hours freezing
Cook: 0 min
Servings: 2
This decadent drink is so thick and creamy you’ll need a spoon to get through it!


  • 1 small banana, frozen
  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat milk, frozen into cubes
  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat milk
  • 12 frozen cherries
  • 1 tbs cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup water, cold
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence


  1. Add all ingredients to a blender or jug that can be used with a stick blender.
  2. Blitz until desired texture is reached. Note: if your mixer is not very powerful, blitz everything together without any frozen ingredients, then add the frozen things a little at a time, blitzing as you go.


You can substitute cow’s milk with a plant-based milk alternative like soy (choose one that is fortified with calcium).

Serving Suggestion:

Freeze any leftovers in an ice cube tray. Enjoy frozen, defrosted, or blitz into a quick drink.


*To make milk ice cubes, pour milk into an ice cube tray and freeze until hard (at least 2 hours). *To freeze bananas, peel and chop and place in a ziplock bag. 1 cm slices will freeze in about 2 hours. *Frozen, pitted cherries are available at many supermarkets and are usually much cheaper than fresh. To freeze fresh cherries, cut in half and take out the seed. Freeze in a ziplock bag for at least 2 hours.

Healthy tip!

Having a party? Serve vegie sticks and water crackers with salsa rather than high-fat chips and dips.

    Hi Sian, we haven't tried it with fresh cherries, but as long as you take out the pits, it should work just fine :)

    Would this work with fresh cherries?
