Berry Chocolate Green Smoothie

Mmm, who would guess this chocolatey, dessert-y treat contains almost 4 cups of fresh kale? 🙂

Normally, I use  2-3 cups of greens in a green smoothie, but thanks to the added sweetness of the chocolate milk and berries, you can get away with more!

Ingredients

  • 2-4 cups spinach or kale
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 3/4 cup frozen berries (I used a mixture of blueberries and blackberries
  • 1 scoop chocolate or vanilla protein powder (optional)
  • 1 1/4 cup chocolate milk of your choice (I’m a huge fan of chocolate almond or soy milk)
  • Ice cubes

Directions

Just toss everything in a blender (greens first) and blend until it reaches the desired consistency. Yum…

    • 🙂 delicious is the answer! The banana, berries, and chocolate milk cover the taste of the kale, resulting in a (not overwhelmingly) sweet milkshake-type smoothie. Plus, gotta love all those antioxidants and fiber! 🙂
