Chocolate Dipped Fruit Smoothie

Chocolate is a real treat for me.  I'm careful not to be a glutton. I take serious thought as to how I'm going to indulge myself without creating an extra bulge around myself.  Here lately, I've taken a fancy to sipping on dark chocolate almond milk as an after dinner dessert.  This morning, I decided to add it to my morning smoothie.  I tucked a couple of cups of fresh baby spinach in the pitcher just for good measure.  The kids never even noticed the spinach.
