Popeye’s spinach smoothie

FullSizeRender (1)

If Popeye was around in this day and age and was a health fanatic, crossfit devotee vegan who milked his own almonds….I would imagine this is how he’d get his daily dose of Spinach.

I was dubious when I first read what was in this recipe as I’ve never believed that chocolate and spinach should be used in the same sentence let alone the same meal, BUT I tried it this morning and it was surprisingly, very very surprisingly tasty. Now not McDonalds chocolate thickshake tasty, but for something so healthy it was quite nice and we all know how gross healthy can be (avocado and chocolate milkshake I’m looking at you)

One tip- I had no ice this morn so it was a little warm, but with either a frozen banana or some ice it is a really great option for a healthy, nutritious, quick start to your day.
