Chocolate Raspberry Smoothie

Chocolate Raspberry Smoothie...Yum!
Evolution of a smoothie -

Me, "What kind of smoothie do you want for breakfast?"
Dan, "Raspberry and banana."
Me, "No problem."   (gets raspberries and bananas out of freezer and puts in blender)
Dan, "Oh, and why don't you put a handful of spinach in it?"
Me, "Ok."  (adds handful of spinach, a scoop of protein powder and about a cup of water, turns on blender)
Dan, "The spinach made it look brown, almost like chocolate.  Do we have any cocoa powder?"
Me, "Yup.  I'll add some."  (blends some more and pours into glasses)
Dan, "Hey, this is good...chocolate raspberry smoothie!"

So, here is the recipe for chocolate raspberry smoothie.  :)

Chocolate Raspberry Smoothie
1 c. frozen or fresh raspberries
2 bananas, cut into chunks, preferably frozen
1 handful fresh spinach
1 T. cocoa powder
1 scoop protein powder

Blend everything with enough water to make the right consistency (I used about 1 c.).  Enjoy!
