Chocolate Cherry Green Smoothie

I haven't smoothie posted in a while, so here is a variation of the sort of morning goodness you can make with greens, cocoa and delicious fruits of one sort or another. (Other ideas here and here.)

This cherry version has a nice tang to brighten up your morning. Plus, it's got a boatload of greens crammed in, so can you just about hit your salad quota for the day in one very tasty way! Sweet!
