Chocolate Pecan Smoothie

This should be called Blueberry Banana Smoothie, but I'm not the one who wrote it.  Anyhow, after a terrific ETL meal Sergio asks me, "what's for dessert?".  I had a plan though and came prepared, with this super quick smoothie.  Yes, it has Spinach in it but you can't even taste it (which I think is too bad).  Make sure and use frozen blueberries or you won't get the right smoothie consistency and in our experience smoothies taste better when enjoyed through a straw.

5 ounces organic baby spinach
1/2 cup soy milk
1/2 cup pomegranate juice
1 banana
2 tablespoons raw pecans
1 tablespoon Dr. Fuhrman's cocoa powder or other natural cocoa powder, NOT Dutch processed (purchased at health food store)
2 cups frozen blueberries
1 tablespoon ground flax seeds

First liquefy spinach in soy milk and pomegranate juice. Then add all remaining ingredients and blend until smooth.
