Chocolate Cherry Smoothie

When Nick asked me to “bring him something special” from the grocery store, he probably didn’t mean a bag of frozen sweet cherries. I put them to good use, though, in this chocolate smoothie, which is probably closer to the “special” he was thinking of.

Chocolate Cherry Smoothie
Serves: 2

8 ounces organic baby spinach
1/2 cup unsweetened soy, hemp or almond milk
1/2 cup pomegranate juice or water
1 tablespoon natural cocoa powder, not Dutch processed
1 cup frozen cherries
1 cup frozen blueberries
1 banana
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons ground flax seeds
x
Place the spinach, soy milk and juice/water in the blender and run it a little to liquefy the spinach. Add remaining ingredients and blend about 2 minutes until very smooth.
