  1. I’ve been looking for something different from my strawberry smoothies, so I had to try this. I don’t have dark chocolate syrup so I subbed dark chocolate powder (I think I put a little too much in). I don’t have coconut milk so I used regular but added some coconut flakes (maybe half a tablespoon). And of course I added kale, so the color of mine is a little more disturbing than yours. But it tastes great!
