Chocolate Banana Berry Protein Smoothie

I loooove me some smoothies! I frequently whip them up on the weekends as either a light breakfast or healthy mid-day snack. I enjoy changing up my ingredients to make different flavors, but one ingredient that’s been a mainstay is cocoa powder. I’m a big chocolate fan, so including this in my smoothie always gives me the fix I need. The fruit (especially banana) is always sweet enough so that no other sweeteners are needed, and I like to add spinach and protein powder to add some good, subtle nutrients. This one happens to taste just like a chocolate-covered strawberry…mmmm

*I use Nutiva hemp protein powder, but you can use any kind you want. If you use a chocolate protein powder, you may not need the cocoa powder.
