green smoothie!

lately i've been drinking a lot of green smoothies, and in an attempt to make something that could i have quickly (i was late for school) and still have enough energy, i came up with this:

looks-like-vomit-but-tastes-amazing super smoothie!
-a scoop of protein powder (optional)
-1 banana
-1/4 cup of kashi (or other dry cereal)
-1/2 cup soymilk
-1 tbsp cocoa powder
-a handful of spinach
-a handful of blueberries
-a spoonful of sunflower seed butter

first, mix the cocoa powder with boiled water in a mug and then mix the soymilk with it.
put everything else in a blender and pour in the chocolate soymilk.
whrrrr.

you can mess around with the ingredients, of course.
i use protein powder because i'm trying to up my intake.
other berries would be good, or different kinds of greens (broccoli, maybe sprouts?), or different nut butters/cereals.. whatever.
most of the stuff added was purely for nutritional value, but go nuts. :)
