Bean / green chocolate smoothie

Submitted by: MYOWNHERO
Bean / green chocolate smoothie

Introduction

I'm still tweaking this...but with 11 g of fiber and 14 g of protein I think it's worth trying. The beans make it very filling and a lovely brown chocolate-y color. No need to hide the color of this smoothie :D I'm still tweaking this...but with 11 g of fiber and 14 g of protein I think it's worth trying.

Ingredients

    1 cup black beans (that's 1/2 can, rinse to reduce sodium)

    2 dried prunes. Omit if you don't like/need.
    1/4 cup frozen spinach (or handful of fresh greens)
    Your favorite sweetener to taste. For the recipe I added 1 Tablespoon Agave Nectar and 2 packets of Splenda. Use what/how much you like.

    6 ice cubes, added one at a time.

I'd like to hear your variations and improvements.
