“Strength is the capacity to break a Hershey bar into four pieces with your bare hands – and then eat just one of the pieces.” Judith Viorst, American writer
While I am skeptical of smoothies that are neon green — I prefer my kale in non-liquid form, thank you — there aren’t many recipes for this type of food that I don’t like. Our blender and I have a warm camaraderie as a result.
But, there are smoothies and there are smoothies. This recipe is one of the latter, good for a meal substitute when the day is crazy, good for that fourth small meal of the day if you have a hummingbird metabolism like mine. And, if you like chocolate — and who does not? — it is just good. Enjoy!

Combine in blender 2 tablespoons nut butter (I prefer natural peanut butter), 1 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder, 1 medium banana and enough dairy or nut milk for the fluid to reach the 1 1/2 cup mark. Blend thoroughly. Serves one.
