Protein Berry Chocolate Smoothie

Picture

This smoothie may not look like chocolate, as the berries overpower the color, but there is a hint of chocolate at each sip. The cacao mixed with the berries in this smoothie makes it extremely high in antioxidants, more than green tea and red wine. The almond butter makes it high in protein. A great after workout recovery drink, and this can also be replaced as a meal.
