Chocolate Protein Smoothie

I'm currently Zoning. Paleo/Zone to be exact so that makes things a little more difficult. 
After my workout today I wanted to drink my regular protein shake, but I knew that wouldn't fall under the guidelines for my block count so I came up with this so that I had a balanced amount of fat/protein/carbohydrates. It was delicious!!! It tastes like a bowl of chocolate ice cream...in a mason jar!

Chocolate Protein Smoothie

Makes: 2 Servings

2 Cups Coconut Milk
2 Scoops Chocolate Protein Powder 
6-8 Cups Frozen Spinach (I buy a huge bag of fresh spinach from Costco and freeze whatever I know we won't get into because it's so much)
2 Cups Frozen Strawberries
1 Cup Frozen Pineapple 

1. Place the coconut milk, protein powder and frozen spinach in your blender and turn on high until blended. 
2. Add your frozen strawberries and pineapple and keep blending until the consistency desired is reached. 

Easy peasy, right?! It's super simple to cut this recipe in half to make it a single serving too.
