Chocolate Green Smoothie

Chocolate in a green smoothie? Yes! Why not?! One day I woke up with the biggest craving for chocolate. I knew I wanted to start my day with a green smoothie so I figured, I’d add chocolate to my smoothie. The trick was figuring out how to get it sweet without too much fruit and no added sugar. Bananas and dates give a sweet balance to the bitter cacao and greens. The color will be a deep green, practically brown. It’s not a bad thing just different! The color has nothing to do with the flavor. I hope you try it and enjoy it!
