Choco Cantaloupe Smoothie

My obsession with this smoothie right now is sick! Sick, I tell you! Maybe because it's been way too long since I've indulged in melon? Or maybe because chocolate & cantaloupe have a beautiful love affair that was previously undiscovered? Whatever the case, HOLY CRAP!! This smoothie is to live for! I tried it first with the lemon, & then also without. Both ways were suuuuper tasty, but I think I'm favouring the 'no-lemon' version right meow.
I know that all of my smoothies lately have been loaded with chocolate & greens, buuuut....deal with it :) I'm serious, give chocolate & greens a try. You'll be surprised. The best part? It's helping to curb my cravings for all those raw cookies! The diminishing 'cookie handles' on my waist say "thank you." :)

From my slimming waist to yours <3

Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups water
1 scoop Vega, natural
2 tbs raw cacao powder
3-4 cups greens (spinach, kale, your choice!)
1/4 of a cantaloupe, skinned
1 banana, peeled
juice from one lemon, about 2tbs (optional)

Directions:
1) Put all ingredients in a blender. Puree until smooth.
2) Drink your chocolate-green-melon smoothie.
3) Smile. Don't worry, be happy :)
