Caitlyn's Chocolate Chip Splash

My six-year-old is back in the kitchen.  It won't surprise me if she has a smoothie restaurant by the time she's 10 - she loves inventing new recipes!  She made this one up this morning and asked me to share it with you.  I told her that with that much chocolate, it will definitely be a once in a while treat!

Caitlyn's Chocolate Chip Splash

1 cup chocolate chips
2 pinches salt
1 cup frozen strawberries
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup water
1 1/2 cup milk
Lots and lots of love (this can be accomplished by blowing kisses into the blender)
cinnamon sugar, for topping

Put all ingredients except cinnamon sugar in the blender.  Puree until smooth.  Pour into glasses and sprinkle cinnamon sugar on top.  Enjoy!

Edit 9/20/15:  We make this one for breakfast at least twice a week now.  We've revised it to only use 1/2 cup of chocolate chips, and add 1 cup plain yogurt for extra protein.  Still delicious!
