I'd like to say that I created this recipe but, actually, a friend of mine did. In fact, she created 40 of them and wrapped them all up in a nice handy book.
Wait, wait. I want to talk about this Mexican Iced Chocolate Smoothie some more. First of all, chocolate, Then add some greens, a little bit of spinach in this case. Then there's fruit and more and more and the outcome is an original treat all wrapped up in a glass. Spicy cold goodness!
Now for a very nice and original cookbook. 40 Days of Green Smoothies is written by Becky Striepe and the variety of different kinds of smoothies is astounding. Becky has even included shopping lists and put the smoothies in order so that no product goes to waste.
You not only can drink your greens but you can drink your fruit right along at the same time. The recipes are so clever and satisfying. You probably already know Becky because she runs the blog Glue and Glitter and is a powerhouse behind her recipes and videos.
