Chocolate Covered Blueberry Smoothie

My body asked for berries today so I tried something new. It turned out really nice but I think bananas and peanut butter powder will stay the smoothie champ for now.

The mix:
1 cup frozen blueberries
1 scoop chocolate raw veg protein
1/2 scoop raw veg powder
1/8 cup cocoa
1/2 tbsp raw honey
1 cup flax milk

The Mix:
3 kale leaves
1 pink grapefruit no rind or seeds
1 tbsp raw honey
1 tbsp coconut water powder
1/2 cup tart cherry juice

Blender Juicing

I decided on an experiment today. I used the blender, instead of the juicer, to make make my juice.
The mix: grapefruit with no rind and big seeds removed, 3 large kale leaves, tsp of local raw honey, tsp chia seeds, and a cup of water.

Calories: 215

It came out pretty good. The texture was different than when using a juicer, as expected, but did not gross me out or anything. I would not recommend it for a first time juicer.
