Black Forest Smoothie

I decided to treat myself to a gourmet smoothie to celebrate having everything booked for the wedding. To go along with the whole wedding-planning spirit, I decided to throw some ingredients together to make a cake-flavored smoothie.  It's pretty luscious.  Alex didn't like it (even though he guzzled it in a matter of seconds), but don't take that into consideration unless you don't like the taste of dark chocolate!  Rating 8/10.

6 oz container dark cherry yogurt (regular cherry works just fine as well)
1 ripe banana
2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup coconut milk
1 1/2 tbsp turbinado sugar
1/4 tsp almond extract
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
2 ice cubes
1/4 to 1/2 cup frozen cherries (optional- totally fine without)

Blend all the ingredients together, top with whipped cream if you are feeling decadent!
