Enjoy Chocolate Any Time of Day!
The first time you whip up one of these Chocolate Cherry Shakes, it will remind you of something served at an ice cream shop, with thick, creamy decadence and flavor… All it needs is the cherry on top! But what makes it unique from sugary, high-calorie treats is its impressive ingredient profile, including 310 Chocolate Shake.
310 Chocolate meal replacement shake has the taste of rich, indulgent cocoa – but with no sugar or artificial sweeteners. Instead, it’s sweetened with plant-based, Stevia, along with whole food fruits included in the formula. With only 90 calories per shake serving, it’s an amazing source of protein, fiber, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and real food nutrients.
Plus, 310 Shake is soy free unlike many other non-dairy shake options. Soy isolate (which is used to make soy-based meal replacements), is a controversial protein, since over 90% of the soy crop in the US is genetically-modified. Not to mention that soy contains estrogen-mimicking properties that can potentially mess with your hormones and cause health problems.
Instead, 310 Chocolate Shake uses three plant-based proteins with proven health benefits: pea, brown rice and hemp.

Rich Nutrients in Every Chocolate-Cherry Sip
Along with 310 Chocolate Shake, this rich and indulgent smoothie also contains some of the best ingredients for you. Believe it or not, cacao powder is one of the richest sources of polyphenols – which offer intense antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits. Plus, the fruit powder will fulfill your craving for chocolate, without the sugar, and is also a powerful mood booster!
Next, cherries contain an abundance of nutrients that benefit heart health, and may help improve sleep quality. In addition, the juicy fruit can help boost exercise recovery – making this Chocolate Cherry Shake a great post-workout drink. In particular, cherry concentrate has been shown to help reduce pain and speed up muscle recovery in athletes.
Finally, this shake recipe also includes MCT Oil – a highly concentrated and nutritious oil (which comes from coconut oil), but has faster absorption in your body. Due to this, it boosts metabolism and provides an instant burst of energy, along with mental focus and motivation. Plus, it can help increase fat-burning!
