Chocolate Lemonade Smoothie

I am completely obsessed with cacao in my smoothies lately. Completely. Even when it just plays a supporting role, as opposed to being the star, I notice a huge change in the flavour profile of my smoothies. And it's great, because I seem to get chocolate cravings daily...so, as opposed to angrily fighting them off with carrots & lettuce, I'm embracing them! You only live once, right? Put some friggin' chocolate in your smoothies! Chocolate makes me happy :) Happy Char, Happy World <3
I had expected this to taste more like a chocolate banana treat, but was surprised that it turned out more like chocolate lemonade! Never would have thought to create something like that: I love when my recipes happen by accident :)

From my chocolate-lovin' tummy to yours <3

Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups water
2tbs cacao powder
2-4 cups greens
1 banana
juice from 1 lemon (about 2tbs)
1/2 cup fresh strawberries

Directions:
1) Blend until smooth. Drink from a wine glass, because you can ;)
