1 cup any milk substitute - soymilk (vanilla flavored), almond milk, hazelnut milk, etc.
1 cup whole frozen cherries (black cherries or pie cherries, either is good) (without pits)
1/4 cup roasted carob powder (tastes better when fresh)
1 tablespoon sweet molasses or 4 fresh and soft medjhool dates
Do not use old dates because they don't blend well.
If using dates, blend liquid and dates first, then add all other ingredients and blend.
Blend first at a low speed to break up the frozen cherries, then at a higher speed till smooth.
Yeilds 1 3/4 cups.

This is a good tasting high-calorie and easily digestable breakfast drink. I use it "medicinally" to curb chocolate cravings and to combat depression. This recipe has been crafted so that
it will impart some of the mood enhancing properties of chocolate. Even
people with gallbladder trouble can drink this with no ill effects.
