Raspberry Cocoa Powder Smoothie

It's smoothie season! Well, technically not weather-wise, but waistline wise probably so.  I definitely indulged in many delicious Christmas cookies and was happy to do so!  And now, I'm happy to get back to filling my body with healthier choices, like this delicious and filling smoothie. 

When I make smoothies it's usually with at least one baby hanging off my legs (or sometimes two) so the measurements below are an estimate.  Feel free to use more or less, depending on your preference.  I usually just dump and make.  They always turn out great! 

Raspberry Cocoa Powder Smoothie
1/2 cup frozen raspberries
2/3 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 cup spinach leaves
1/4 cup almond milk, unsweetened, vanilla
1/2 banana
1 TB honey
1 TB cocoa powder

Combine all ingredients in the blender until smooth!  Drink and enjoy :).  This goes especially well with a handful of almonds for a healthy, quick lunch or snack.
