Chocolate Pear Berry Smoothie

It's the last day of my cleanse, & I'm craving chocolate hardcore!! My goal, though, was to stick with green smoothies, veggies, & fruit only for the last two days of my cleanse. Still wanting to give my digestive system a break by avoiding raw cookies & sticking with smoothies, I also didn't want to feel deprived: I wanted chocolate, & I wanted it right meow! Yesterday, I had this smoothie without the added cacao; today I had it with. Both smoothies are fantastic: it just depends on what you're craving at the moment. Yesterday, I was good without chocolate, but, um, not today :) Sooo I added some cacao, & sipped my way to happiness. Breakfast was great this morning. I've included both recipes below, as I added ginger in one, & cacao in the other...dunno why I didn't think to add the ginger to my chocolate, one, though, because that would be pretty yummy, too :) Enjoy!
