Chocolate Cherry PB&J Green Smoothie!

This morning I made a new smoothie combination and I can honestly say it's one of new favorites! I wasn't planning on posting this as a recipe, as it was a very spur of the moment concoction, but It was so amazing I couldn't not share it with you guys! It's sweet, tart, thick and full of nutrients to keep you energized for breakfast or a as a post workout shake! I know chocolate, cherry, a peanut butter & jelly, and some greens sounds like a lot going on...But trust me when I say it's like a dance party in your mouth! Haha let's get blendin'!
