Chocolate Nutrient Boosting Smoothie

This chocolate smoothie is a little different.  Not only does it use raspberries to provide the sweetness and a touch of vitamin C, but also rhubarb, which boosts calcium (a nutrient many people struggle to get enough of) along with magnesium, potassium, manganese and vitamin K1.  

Feel free to add other ingredients depending on your nutritional goals and to your tastes. 

If you make a batch of the rhubarb and raspberry mix you can add it to your smoothies all week.
