This is a tasty smoothie alternative when you really feel like a sweet chocolatey hit. Add a few sneaky greens in there if you're game, and you can say this is 100% good for you. Raw cacao is super high in antioxidants, so don't feel bad about your chocolate addiction with this one! Add more or less greens depending on your greens-skill-level (start small people...)
