Beautiful Blue (Green) Smoothie

I discovered the other day that if I add 1-2 teaspoons of cocoa powder to my smoothie, it adds a deep delicious flavor that has only a hint of chocolate (which allows the other flavors to shine through). And we chocoholics all know that cocoa powder is loaded with antioxidants. This one has soymilk, flax seed, almond butter, banana, blueberries, and two big handfuls of baby spinach! That is cinnamon sprinkled on top, a throwback to our favorite Milwaukee Mexican restaurant where we used to get banana milkshakes sprinkled with cinnamon. Way to get spinach into the unsuspecting kiddos!

The hubby baked cupcakes with the girls this weekend. They were really good, with cream filling and chocolate frosting. The girls love to bake!
