Chocolate Silk Smoothie

Pin It!

This is one thick smoothie…

strawberry protein shake

It’s so thick you might want to skip the glass… and use a spoon!

Chocolate soup?

strawberry protein shake

Meeting my vegetable requirements for the day is never a problem. (Sometimes I have to make sure I don’t get too many!) Therefore I don’t normally seek out fortified products like powdered vegetable drink mixes. But when the Barleans company asked if I wanted to test their new Chocolate Silk green powder… well, they did say the magic word:


And I do love the company’s Chocolate-Raspberry Sauce.

So I agreed to give the chocolate powder a try. This powder really is good… and it passed the roommate test as well. Do I think it’s wise to substitute powder for actual greens in one’s diet? Probably not; but with antioxidants, probiotics, fiber, and protein, this mix would be great for someone who routinely falls short on the recommended servings of leafy greens. And it’s also great for someone like me—who couldn’t care less about the nutritional benefits and just enjoys the chocolatey taste.

As stated earlier, this recipe makes one really thick smoothie!

Chocolate Silk Smoothie

(Serves 1)

  • 1 cup frozen strawberries (or other berries) (150 grams)
  • 1 heaping tablespoon (6-8 grams) Chocolate Silk greens (Or you can use regular cocoa powder, and add sweetener to taste.)
  • 3-6 tablespoons milk of choice (or even more, depending on whether you want a drink or chocolate soup!)
  • 1/16 tsp salt

Combine everything in a vita-mix or high-powered blender, and blend until smooth. Note: The recipe will be darker (and thicker!) than in the photos. The photos are of the powder mixed with almond milk, because I only made the strawberry recipe yesterday and didn’t have time for a photoshoot. But I still wanted to post the recipe along with the review of the Chocolate Silk greens.

Chocolate soup > chicken noodle!

(Is there a math symbol for “way greater than”?)











I think it would be really good in my Hot Chocolate Cookies!

  1. Sapphire says:

    Favorite green veggie, eh? Green bell peppers!

  2. Sapphire says:

    or broccoli…

    and I’d use the powder every day in my daily protein smoothie :)

  3. Ann says:

    I’ve recently cut out dairy for breastfeeding, but have had a serious need for chocolate in my life. This is where you come in! I have a list of to-make recipes now to get me through afternoon sugar cravings!
    Anyway, my favorite green vegetable is broccoli! Or spinach. Or kale. Or asparagus…

    1. Mackenzie says:

      I had to go dairy free for the same reason! It is hard not to fall off the wagon, especially when my son’s dairy sensitivity was extreme (i.e. I had to read labels to make sure there weren’t any trace amounts of hidden dairy anywhere!) Kudos to you, I wish I had found this blog while I was strictly dairy free, even though the only thing I still eat that is dairy is cheese now…

  4. Steph says:

    I love spinach! It’s great with anything savory and also in juices! I think I’d use the powder in my late night snack shakes so I don’t eat anything TOO heavy close to bed 😉

  5. Sara says:

    I love spinach! But also asparagus, green peppers, kale… it’s hard to pick just one.

  6. Rachel says:

    Fav green vegetable is probably green beans — cause they are delicious raw or cooked:) Although I like all green veggies…

    Ps. “Way greater than” math symbol is: >> As in, chocolate>>anything else :)

    1. s says:

      spinach is probably my favorite green!

      and yeah rachel’s got it on the math symbol thing :) the ‘way greater than’ symbol is one of my favorites … especially when used in ridiculous ways like orange juice >> life.

  7. Shannon says:

    I eat an obscene amount of spinach. I’m going to turn green soon.

  8. I love leafy spinach. It’s great in a salad, soup, or smoothies.

  9. Caroline says:

    I love spinach!

  10. Evana says:

    I absolutely LOVE asparagus!!!

  11. kaity says:

    broccoli and peas! yumm and id use this in my smoothies every morning def would love some extra chocolate! and even try them in some desserts, my fam could use a lil extra boost of vegetables:-)

  12. Rebecca W. says:

    My favorite green veggie would have to be okra…i don’t think it would taste very good in a smoothie through :(.
    I would love to try this stuff out! Chocolate AND veggie nutrition…thats just too great to pass up!

  13. Suzanne Wirth says:

    I have to admit, I don’t usually fall short in the green veggie dept…LOVE lots of them. Of course, I’m not going to skip the chance to eat chocolate instead. 😉 However, for the purpose of this post, my favorite, currently, is spinach. 😀 Mostly because I just discovered a cookie shortbread recipe that uses spinach to turn the cookies green! Yes, you read that correctly. lol Gotta love St. Pat’s day! 😀 Oh ya, and GO CHOCOLATE! 😉

  14. sarah s says:

    green smoothies made with spinach is tried and true for me, it works every time if i haven’t fit in enough veggies for the day!

  15. Brooke says:

    i <3 spinach

  16. Megan says:

    Love asparagus!! When it’s in season it is aaaahmazing ! :)

  17. Aly says:

    Aaaa! This looks delicious…it’s so hard to pick my favorite green vegetable, but I’ve always been madly in love with broccoli. Ever since I was little, I always loved the “trees”…it didn’t hurt that my dad always cooked them to perfection. Hope I win!

  18. Betsy says:

    Nothing beats roasted broccoli tossed with olive oil, garlic pepper and salt!

  19. jessica says:

    favorite green? KALE of course :) and i love kale in smoothies so much that i would PROBABLY add kale to the blender when i win this chocolate silk powder! well… hopefully, that is 😉

  20. Frida says:

    Like Popeye would’ve chosen, I have to say: Spinach! :)

  21. Christina says:

    My favorite is spinach. So versitile and healthy :) And I’d use the Greens chocolate silk to make THIS green silk smoothie… and probably in every other smoothie! (You just cant go wrong with chocolate and greens 😉 ) Thanks Katie!

  22. alison says:

    Broccoli is my fave! I would use this powder in the chocolate banana hemp milk smoothies I give my kids everyday.

  23. Caitlin says:

    Spinach and Edamame!

    I would use it every day in my post-workout shake. Or in smoothies. Possibly both.

    *greens are that important, yup*

  24. Ashley says:

    Ooooh! It’s hard to pick my favourite green veggie! Lately it has been kale, but that changes all the time.

  25. Wendy says:

    Smoothies smoothies smoooothies!!!!

  26. Noora says:

    My fave green veggie is definitely green peas. More specifically: frozen green peas. Give me a bag of those and it’ll be empty in a matter of minutes, I can’t help myself, I just love to munch them!

  27. Lynn in MD says:

    I love spinach. I would love to try this powder too. My family is making the transition to heart healthy eating… so having chocolate/strawberry smoothies for dessert sounds wonderful!

  28. Sonja says:

    Gotta say spinach is my favorite, as uncreative as that may be. I love me a big, leafy salad or steamed spinach – I use it in place of lettuce on bean burgers…and green smoothies are one of my favorite drinks! I’d definitely use some of the chocolate greens in a smoothie some time :)

  29. Claire says:

    “way greater than” would be “>>” in maths-chat!

    1. Claire says:

      (and my favourite green vegetable is broccoli!)

  30. amy marantino says:


  31. Katie says:

    My favorite foods are green vegetables!! Although it’s a close close first after asparagus, bell peppers, and artichokes, my favorite is broccoli. IT IS DELICIOUS LITTLE TREES.

  32. Andi says:

    I would love to use this daily as my breakfast smoothie. My favorite green veggie is lima beans!

  33. Kira says:

    Spinach!! Can’t get enough of it :)
    I would probably make this smoothie recipe but throw in a handful of spinach with it!
    And I could add that powder to just about anything 😉

  34. Jamie says:

    I want to make this smoothie!!!!

  35. Cari says:

    I love so many green veggies! Kale, spinach. broccoli, avocado— yum! I would love to win this giveaway!

  36. Kristi says:

    Spinach! Or roasted Brussels sprouts! I just bought a vitamix so I would smoothie it up with the powder!

  37. Shayna says:

    Brussel sprouts or artichokes are my two favorite green vegetables! I haven’t heard of the chocolate silk before this, but it sounds delish in any smoothie :)

  38. Jenna says:

    Favorite green veggies…roasted broccoli and cabbage with garlic and evoo!! Yum!! And just for kicks…I’d use the powder in my homemade hot chocolate :)

  39. Annin says:

    Another spinach fan here.

  40. Michael says:

    I NEVER get enough leafy greens! My favorite vegetable is DEFINITELY brussel sprouts. AH!

  41. My favorite green veggie is kale! My stepmom used to make kale and tomatoes routinely, and I would literally drink the leftover “broth” it was so good :)

    If I win the powder, I’ll probably use it in my morning smoothie or maybe even in my almond milk and banana ice “cream” :)

  42. Selina says:

    Favorite green? Oh, I dunno If I can choose just one. I love spinach for my morning green smoothies! But Kale makes any awesome raw salad. And arugula shows up in my diet quite a bit too.

    Truth be told if I were to win, I’d likely use this to make my husbands smoothies. He likes his smoothies sweet and isn’t a fan of the green smoothie. Plus he probably doesn’t get as much greens in his diet as I do. :)

  43. Marsha says:

    I LOVE Brussels sprouts.

  44. Abigail says:

    I would add it to spinach smoothies!:)

  45. Stacey says:

    Favourite green veggie would have to be either spinach or cabbage :)

  46. Kelly says:


  47. My favorite green veggie is kale! Or maybe broccoli, depending on my mood. Aaaah, I can’t decide! I do know what I’d make if I won this giveaway though – hot chocolate. Or hot chocolate smoothies/milkshakes. Yum!

  48. Shana says:

    Spinich!!! would use this in my breakfast smoothie every morning!!

  49. Wendy says:

    BROCCOLI <3 <3

  50. My favorite green veggie lately has been brussels sprouts! I can’t get enough :)

  51. I love so many vegetables it’s hard to decide on my favourite!
    I love broccoli, spinach, brussell sprouts and many more!

    If I won this powder I would love to experiment with it! For example, in banana soft serve, oatmeal, bran, milkshakes and much more!

    Thanks for hosting the contest Katie!

  52. That’s a tough question – I love a lot of green vegetables! I really enjoy perfectly cooked asparagus – that’s pretty much as good as it gets. Although I have been on a big spinach kick lately – it’s so versatile! I love it in huge salads, green smoothies, or sauteed and added to quiche, scrambled eggs, grain bowls… so many possibilities :) Thanks for a great giveaway!

  53. Alex Maxx says:

    My favorite green veggie is kale (:

  54. Cassandra says:

    I love all veggies! Spinach is my most-used, though.

  55. Cassie says:

    I <3 spinach!

  56. Taylor says:

    Spinach! I puree it and sneak it into chocolate cakes and brownies. It sounds gross, I know, but you’d really never even know it was there!

  57. Tina says:

    I love kale! Thanks for the chance to win :)

  58. Jess says:

    I’d love to try this as an ingredient for a pie filling, to be honest. It sounds tempting!

  59. Ally says:

    Kale!!!!!!!!! I can’t get enough of the stuff! If I won this powder I would use it to make green smoothies :)

  60. MaryBeth Lonergan says:

    Love brussels sprouts lately. And also edamame. and spinach.

  61. Tricia says:

    I looove asparagus! But i’ve been having trouble getting veggies in lately so this seems like a really good product :)

  62. Amy B. says:

    Spinach will be my favorite. Forever and always!

  63. Nadine says:

    I’ve been looking for both a greens powder and a chocolate powder. Double win!
    how can anyone choose just one favorite green? I think I might have to choose cabbage. It’s a simple food, but such a yummy one. Cole slaw, cabbage soup, cabbage salad. We always have at least one cabbage in our fridge.

  64. Emily says:

    Love spinach and green cabbage (even though it doesn’t quite count as a leafy green, it is still delicious)!

  65. Aggie says:

    My favorite green veggie is kale. I put it in my smoothies every morning for breakfast and I love to fry it in a pan with garlic, onions, and mushrooms for lunch. If I won this powder I would use it to make my daughter smoothies because she doesn’t like the texture of the fresh fruits and veggies in her drinks.

  66. Amy says:

    It’s hard to pick a favorite green veggie. It would have to be a tie between fresh green beans, spinach and steamed broccoli! I would definitely use this powder in my daily protein drinks! I have been trying to get healthy again after a really tough year and some days I do great with getting enough veggies and other days I fall short a little. I have been following your blog for several months now since finding your chocolate chip cookie dough recipe on pinterest (my kids love that recipe by the way). You do great work and I love reading your posts :)

  67. Monique says:

    hmm, favorite green veggie. . . that’s a tough one. If I had to pick just one it would be peas of any sort. Love my green foods <3

  68. Favorite green veggie is definitely spinach – it’s so versatile! The smoothie sounds awesome – I’m a huge fan of thick smoothies. If I won the powder, I’d whip up this smoothie ASAP!

  69. Dorothy says:

    My favorite greens are broccoli and spinach. I would probably use this powder with my daily smoothies.

  70. Krissi says:

    I love peas because I was never allowed to have them growing up (mom was allergic) so now they are like my forbidden veggie :)

  71. Jessie says:

    Broccoli, or raw spinach! Or asparagus, edamame, kale… Too many faves!
    I’d definitely add the powder to a green smoothie. Veggie overkill :-)

  72. Aggie says:

    Oh! I just had an idea. Maybe I would try putting it in our homemade soy ice cream.

  73. Lucy says:

    I love me some green bell peppers and cellery and collard greens and cucumbers also spinach! Im a kid in the candy store at the veggie aisle :)

  74. Michele says:

    I love kale! It’s delicious, versatile, and adds bulk to pretty much any meal so my stomach doesn’t rumble in an hour :)

  75. Anonymous says:

    Kale, AVOCADOS, spinnach, and beet tops. I LOOOOVE beet tops!

  76. Kate says:

    I ADORE Kale, I love making kale chips and sauteed kale with lemon and garlic. My boyfriend never used to eat veggies but he loved the way I made Kale chips so much they became his “gateway” veggie and now he eats them all the time! I love making chocolate smoothies, I cannot emphasize this enough, they probably make my day if I make a really good one. Its funny because I basically made this exact recipe yesterday and would love to try it with the green’s chocolate silk!

  77. Jordan D. says:

    I love all green veggies! But asparagus is probably my favorite.

  78. Olivia says:

    favorite green veggie = broccoli!

  79. Ashley says:

    I would use it to mix with peanut butter of course! :)

  80. Kristy says:

    Im like you Katie! I could eat vegetables all day long and still want more. I would have to say that Asparagus are my favorite if I had to chose. Especially roasted in coconut oil!
    The chocolate greens is interesting! I’d be curious how it would taste in a brownie. Adding veggies in a brownie mean less guilt and another bite right???

    1. No need to add water, but you do have to be careful when melting chocolate! Google for a tutorial on microwaving chocolate chips, as it needs to be done carefully!

  81. Susie says:


    And I’m a smoothie junkie, so I’m sure the powder would end up in the blender 😀

  82. Riley says:


  83. Alicia Drew says:

    On days I work a long day, I struggle to get all my veggies in, so coming home & enjoying one of these chocolate milkshakes would hit the spot, & help me reach my daily healthy guidelines.

  84. rachel says:

    zucchini .smoothie for certain

  85. Mb says:

    in cookies!

  86. Alanna says:

    My favorite green vegetable is green beans! My parents used to call me “the green bean girl”, haha (very original, I know!). I love broccoli, too, but it doesn’t love me back. :s

  87. Melinda says:

    Tatsoi is one of my current green favorites. Yummy!

  88. Amanda says:

    I’m not much for vegetables, but have worked harder at including them in my diet since our children arrived. (I have to “hide” the vegetables in other food so that I will eat them.) The winner of green veggies in this house is, hands down, green beans- but broccoli is a close runner up! (we usually steam the green beans and then do a quick saute in soy sauce and garlic- but we haven’t done that since our youngest was diagnosed with a milk and soy allergy. I’m thinking this mix is a new essential for this house!)
    I make smoothies every day for either breakfast or a snack for myself and my munchkins. My two (3 and 1) are pretty good about eating their broccoli, but I would LOVE to have another way to make sure that we are all getting our green veggie quota on a daily basis. (is the mix milk and soy free?) =)

  89. Kimberly says:

    Broccoli, of course!

  90. Lisa says:

    I love broccoli!!

  91. MelissaM says:

    Kale is a favorite of mine & my 1 & 3 year old! We love to juice it, make kale chips, & eat raw in salads! :)

  92. Sarah says:

    I would love to have the opportunity to try this recipe as it was created! My favorite green is yummy broccoli!

  93. silvi says:

    My fav green is spinach!

  94. roselyn page says:

    I have many favorite green veggies, and learning so much more to do with them. Today, actually, making barbeque zucchini. I would use the greens to make some of your delicious recipes you use it in. But, come on anything that is chocolate has to go good with peanut butter!!

  95. Debbie says:

    There are so many I like. Not sure I have just one favorite. I really like asparagus, spinach, chard just to name a few. I would use this powder in my daily smoothies. Yummy!

  96. Mindy says:

    I love Kale and Swiss Chard! Chocolate and Greens? I am so there!

  97. jessica rayne says:

    My favorite green veggie is kale! Its tastey as is or prepared with just about anything. And soooo versatile! I have never seen this product before and am very interested in using it. Love your website. Thanks for all the hard work and time you put into it for all of us. :)

  98. Adrianna says:

    My favorite green vegetable is kale. yum.

  99. Jules says:

    I love zucchini and pickles :)
    and for your math symbol problem, just use “>>”

  100. Theresa says:

    Green veggies are my favorite…broccoli, spinach, green beans. I’ve even been kinder to kale, lately. I’d use this powder for smoothies and even baked goods!!!! :) Kinda neat to know that the chocolaty goodness is also good for you! Thanks for the giveaway!

  101. Jen says:

    This would be great in smoothies!

  102. Julie cleeland says:

    Because I have a beautiful artichoke waiting to be enjoyed- I’m going with artichoke:) thank you for this opportunity!

  103. Mara says:

    My favorite green vegetables are cucumber and broccoli, I love both of them!! And I would use this powder to give extra flavor to my daily breakfast coffee!

  104. Alicia L says:

    Favourite green veggie? Broccoli! And kale and spinach! Yum. I love my vegetables.

  105. Jocelyn says:

    I use green’s powder on my yogurt every morning~ my fav green veggie is barbecued green zucchini! one of the reasons I love summer.

  106. Rosi Shepard says:

    Barleans Chocolate silk is needed in my life! My 2 boys 2 and 5 are so picky it’s awful. I am forever using your recipes on them to sneak those veggies in. Thank you so much for making yummy healthy recipes. We will be sipping shamrock shakes again today (your rendition of course). Thank you!

  107. TristineEvans says:

    My favorite is kale. We love it in smoothies in our house. We love your website,!!

  108. Cassondra says:

    My favorite vegetable is bell peppers- delicious :) If I were to try this powder I would love to experiment adding it to my daily morning protein shake!!

  109. Chelsea says:

    Favorite green veggie??? Now, I think that may be a hard one. There are so many that I like. Right now I am really into any roasted veggie but, broccoli and kale I think might be my favs!

  110. Mackenzie says:

    My favorite veggie is Kale or spinach! I am addicted to kale chips, and I love putting spinach into smoothies so I can sneak a little extra serving of veggies into my son’s diet, Thanks for providing all these healthy dessert recipes so I don’t feel so guilty every time I cave and let Ian have a “dessert” as a mid day snack!

  111. I LOVE broccoli but spinach comes in a close second especially for use in smoothies and pasta.

  112. Andrea B. says:

    Does it count if it’s only green on the outside?? If so then I’m totally rocking the kabocha squash!

    Of course if not, it’s a toss up between broccoli and green beans. Mmmmmmmmm.

  113. Elizabeth Rivera says:

    My top 2 green veggies are broccoli & peas, both good alone or thrown into a salad. I would love to try this as I am not big on breakfast & have been wanting to try some sort of shake in the mornings!!

  114. denise says:

    roasted brussel sprouts, spinach and kale. yummy.

  115. Kim says:

    Been on a major spinach kick lately making Green Monster Smoothies. I have tried other Barlean’s products before & liked, this would be great for my kiddos to supplement (as well as myself & the hubby too!)

  116. Sally says:

    I would love to try the greens powder!

  117. Jessica C. says:

    I have an answer for both! My favorite green veggie is definitely spinach. I incorporate it into almost everything and especially smoothies. I would use the Chocolate Silk greens to boost up my most favorite smoothie, Mint-chocolate chip. Yum yum! Thanks for the awesome recipe and giveaway!

  118. Lindsay says:

    I need this powder! I struggle to get my veggies in so this would be perfect for me! I’d definitely use it to make smoothies.

  119. Shelby Heffernan says:

    My favorite green vegetable would have to be roasted green beans!!! I would use the powder to make delicious smoothies!!

  120. Laura says:

    I LOVE KALE!!!!

  121. Erica Cooper says:

    fave green veggie- brussel sprouts! YUM!

  124. Rebecca says:

    Fav green veggie=asparagus!!

    if i won the first thing i would do would be make this smoothie. it sounds delicious!!

  126. Robin says:

    Asparagus – never get tired of it! Love it roasted!

  127. Mona says:

    My favorite green veggies are baby spinach!
    They taste so sweet for a green, and they’re awesome as a salad topped with fresh fruit, like strawberries and grapes. :)

  128. Erin says:

    I would use this to make smoothies for my kids. It’s hard sneaking any veggies in anything, but this might do the trick!

  129. Linda says:

    My favorite green vegetable are Brussels sprouts. :-)

  130. Erin says:

    I would totally use it for smoothies in my Vitamix! My fav green vegetable is broccoli for sure

  131. Korryn O'Neill says:

    I am venturing out into the healthy baking life. I recently bought ground flax for the first time to make in some of your recipes, like chocolate chip blondes (yum!). I would love to try to add more greens in my diet via this powder. Thanks, Katie!

  132. Grati says:

    I´d really love this because….i don´t really like a lot of greens:( Very few and have no idea how to cook them in varied ways and make them better…
    With this giveaway i´d start by making this ¨chocolate soup¨:)) and afterwards i´d try to invents some other delicious smoothies as well….
    As for favourite greens….does cabbage count?This is one veggie that i truly love.And broccoli is up next….
    p.s For all the veggie lovers posting here,could you give some more ideas about how to cook veggies and make them really delicious? (you favourite recipes i mean,i know there are a ton of recipes on the interner,not the same tho)

    1. Sondra says:

      Spinach is awesome when sauteed in olive oil with fresh minced garlic and/or a little onion and spritzed with lemon juice.

      Carrots-I love VeganDads cajun carrots- carrots cooked with agave (he uses maple syrup) a little cayenne and thyme and topped with pecans.

      If you like asian food get yourself some good Five Spice and fry up basically any veggie with a little bit of that and than either soy sauce or rice vinegar (depending if you want a dark or tangy taste)

      Roasting veggies with rosemary, garlic, and a pat of earth balance or olive oil in tinfoil is good (usually I do a mixture and put them in at 375 checking after 10-15 minutes)

      Asparagus and broccolli are to die for grilled (even on an indoor griddle). Peppers and tomatoes are awseome if you brush them with olive oil, put them on high broil and watch carefully for the skin to blacken, then remove from oven and put under an inverted bowl (this roasts them and then steams them to remove the skin.)

      If you like the taste of umami, add a bottle of Umeboshi Plum Vinegar to your repertoire. A couple of drops added to any basic salad dressing gives veggies an addictive quality. (I like taking a bit of juice from a sushi ginger jar mixing it with a few drops of plum vinegar, and pouring it over my salad with toasted sesame seeds and chowmein noodles)

      One more tip- everything tastes good curried. Get yourself a jar of Thai Kitchen Green Curry Paste, a bit of Curry Powder and always keep some thick unsweetened coconut milk on hand- these 3 ingredients plus a tomato base (tomato paste if you have it on hand, but I’ve cheated and used ketchup with okay results) can take any veggie or veggie dish from blah to TA-DA!

      I hope I helped!

      1. Grati says:

        Wow,my mouth is watering already. Thank you,I´ll try these ideas soon.

  133. Aubrey says:

    I love kale!

  134. Martha S. says:

    If its a green veggie, I love it! This would be great in my smoothies!

  135. My favourite green veggie is…broccoli, kale, or spinach. I can’t choose! I love all three of them so much! AND roasted brussels sprouts!

    As for how I’d use the powder…I’d mix it into smoothies. add it to tofu pudding, and mix it into my oat bran! Yum!

  136. Tara says:

    I’d make hot chocolate with it! Yum!

  137. Christine says:

    Broccoli and/or asparagus — love them both!

  138. Becca Lewis says:

    My absolute favourite green vegetable is spinach because you can eat it in salad, blend it in a smoothie or put in on a sandwich. Yum!

  139. supercarrot says:

    broccoli. it’s perfect. (although kale is a very close second)

  140. Ann says:

    This looks delicious!!
    I would use this at least once a day- I’m drinking boosted smoothies for at least one meal a day, but MAN is it expensive! :)
    I am allergic to almost all raw fruits and veggies so my repertoire is limited, to say the least…I come in under my recommended amount nearly every day (although I am having WAY more than I ever did as a kid!) This would be a perfect supplement to help me get there every day!

  141. Cindy C. says:

    I’d add the powder to my morning smoothie. I LOVE chocolate!!!

  142. Olivia says:

    Kale….because I LOVE smoothies with it. This powder would be a great addition to our shakes!

  143. Kelsey says:

    I looove brussel sprouts! And I’d probably use this powder for a shake like you did, or to make banana softserve!

  144. Stacia says:

    The only green vegetable I like is green beans but I do LOVE chocolate so this might be just the thing I need :)

  145. Mushroomz says:

    Brussels sprouts, no doubt!

  146. traci says:

    Broccoli, hands down! And the only way I can get my kids to eat it is in a smoothie.

  147. healthkismet says:

    Favorite green vegetable is green beans….would add powder to smoothies, raw brownies, chili.

  148. Kate says:

    Kale and Spinach
    Edamame is green, so if it counts then its up there too!
    Today I am going to try some blanched beet leaves (with roasted beets) so we’ll see how that turns out.

    Maybe I would try putting the chocolate greens in my oatmeal, pancakes, or smoothies.

  149. Jessica Eagle says:

    Hi, my favorite food is greens, so I have lots of favorite. But I particularly like and enjoy greens such as kale, brocoli and all kind of lettuce. First, I would probably try your suggestion, in your hot chocolate cookie and then I’ll see.
    Have a nice day and thank you for giving us that opportunity to win.
    Jessica :)

  150. Carol L says:

    This smoothie looks awesome and I’d really like to give this product a try!
    My favorite green veggie is roasted asparagus with a touch of toasted sesame oil.

  151. Courtney says:

    Broccoli has to be my favorite green vegetable. It’s funny how there’s a stereotype that children are repulsed by broccoli, and yet my brother and I have always loved it. My mom always complained we ate too much and that she could never keep enough around the house to keep us happy 😉

  152. lori garringer says:

    Veggie—asparagus and artichokes.
    How I’d use it??? I would trick my husband into thinking he was not drinking something healthy!!!

  153. Judy says:

    I love brocolli best…and the first thing I’d use the powder for if I won is make one of the chocolate silk smootie…it looks amazing.

    oxo Judy

  154. Erin says:

    My favorite green vegetable is either brocolli or just simple lettuce. Although I cooked up some rocking asparagus a couple weeks ago, so that could be a contender too. :)

  155. Lainna says:

    Broccoli and spinach for the win.

    If I would I would enjoy at least 1 chocolate delirious drink a day.

  156. Anna says:

    broccoli and/or spinach! tied for first place :)

  157. molly says:

    Bok Choy :)

  158. Katie says:

    Favorite green veggie is probably spinach because I use it in so many different recipes and can add it to so many things! Broccoli comes in a close second.

  159. Becca says:

    My favorite veggie is rainbow chard. Yum!

    I would love this powder! I’d put it in everything- from oatmeal to smoothies. I also think it would be great to share with my boyfriend- he won’t eat veggies and def needs creative ways to get his green vitamins in!

  160. Amber says:

    Just one favorite??

    Hmmm I suppose it would be zucchini. Followed closely by spinach, green beans, and broccoli!

  161. Amy S says:

    I love broccoli!

  162. Sarah says:

    Favorite veggie: broccoli!!! In anything, raw or cooked anyway. Never tried it with chocolate, but I’m willing.

    My daughter is a competitive swimmer. She doesn’t eat meat …or a lot of greens. I try to sneak spinach into things but she doesn’t always ‘swallow the hook.’. She LOVES chocolate though. I will definitely need to get thus powder for her. She needs the nutrients!

  163. Amy says:


  164. kathleen says:

    brussels sprouts, hands down!

  165. Lisa Broadley says:

    My fav veggie I think is asparagus! Or rapini (Broccoli Rabe)…yummy!! As for the powder, possibly in cake. It would be a great way to get kids to ‘eat’ their veggies!!

  166. Audrey says:

    I like broccoli, kale, spinach, collards…

    I would probably add this too smoothies and chia puddings. And probably just drink it with almond milk, too!

  167. Erica B. says:

    Hello Katie! This is my first time leaving a comment on your site :)

    My favourite green vegetable is cucumber! I could sit and eat many cucumbers with dip or hummus specifically, eat cucumber and mayo sandwich, and even blending cucumbers in smoothies. I’ve experimented with cucumbers in spaghetti sauce and even in soup! I love cucumbers!

    I would love to have this container of Barleans Chocolate Silk. It sounds so delicious! And I often find I can curb so many cravings throughout the day by simply having a taste of chocolate. I’m really excited about product as I’ve never heard of it before! I love smoothies in the morning, and this may make my smoothies even better :)

    Thanks for everything you post! Your blog is amazing and so helpful when trying to eat healthier! I’ve been trying to change my life to be more fit and healthy since September and have been blessed by your website. Thank you!

  168. That would HAVE to be a 4 way tie between long stem french green beans, green bell peppers, broccoli, baby spinach :)
    And I would add the powder to several of your recipes, though I’m thinking I would try it in the Voluminous Vanilla Ice Cream…. along with some of my other favorite substitutions/add ins!

  169. monica a says:

    My favorite green veggie is definitely broccoli! I could eat it all day long :) I would use the powder in my oatmeal for some extra nutrition and then in my banana + pumpkin + spinach smoothie of course! :)

  170. Sam says:

    Kale…made into kale chips by just crisping it in the oven!!!

  171. Jenn says:

    Spinach is my favorite, b/c it’s so versatile. I love broccoli, but broccoli is always broccoli, no matter what you do to it.

  172. Rachel says:

    My favorite green vegetable is definitely broccoli! It’s delicious!

  173. Laura M says:

    I love all green vegetables…except maybe Brussels sprouts…
    And while I love eating greens, I would definitely enjoy adding this powder to recipes for everyone to enjoy, especially my friends who have more of a sweet tooth than a love for veggies. It’s a great way to enjoy food that’s good for you too!

  174. jessica light says:

    Kale is my favorite green

  175. ooo pick me! I really need it!

    I’m treating to eat healthier and don’t really like many greens so this product sounds perfect for me.

    I would also looove to make some protein bars with them.

  176. So hard to chose just one, but I’d have to say broccoli!

  177. Linda says:

    My favorite green veggie is broccoli!

  178. Michelle H says:

    I never met a green I did not like, but spinach is probably a favorite. If I won I would use this drink for a chocolate fix without the guilt, and as a treat for the non-green loving members of my family.

  179. Robin says:

    I would use this to try out your fabulous recipe! Sounds yummy…

  180. Michaela says:

    love the pictures! can´t wait for the strawberries to really come in season.
    also while I believe it is way better to actually EAT greens instead of using a powder, I think they are so handy while travelling or living in circumstances where it is not easy to get good fresh produce.
    I think I´d say roasted broccoli. I have detested brokkoli for nearly 2 decades, but as it is your fav veggie (and I think you have an excellent taste when it comes to food :)) I thought I should give it a go and I love it!

  181. Marie Wright says:

    hmmm, I love most green veggies, Kale, Broccoli, Spinach, Fresh Green Beans, etc….. Yummy. I would love to have some Chocolate silk to have a sweet smoothie w/out the guilt. Sounds Heavenly.

  182. Shanleigh says:

    Favorite green vegetable is definitely the artichoke. I grew up eating them and now our kitchen is literally artichoke themed. Between tiles, pictures, rugs, curtains, fake artichokes, etc, there are well over 100 artichoke representations in my kitchen.

  183. Emily says:

    It’s hard for me to pick just one green veggie, but for the sake of spring fever, I’ll go with aspargus!

  184. Brittany says:

    Broccoli. I often dream of just a giant plate of broccoli the size of a table for me to chow down on.

  185. Linda says:

    Asparagus might be my favorite veggie, even tho’ I love them all! I would definitely use this powder in my smoothies (especially peanut butter/banana/chocolate!). Can imagine I could add it to anything I want to have a yummy chocolate flavor!

  186. Heidi says:

    Zucchini is my favorite, followed closely by asparagus, brussels sprouts, spinach, artichokes…

  187. Kim says:

    Wow…this looks good!
    My favorate green vegetable would have to be Kale and Spinach …I use them in every thing from my breakfast to my Smoothies! My 4 kids even don’t mind them!
    I could think of a bunch of ways to use chocolate greens…it would fit right in to so many of your yummy recipes! I am on a homemade ice cream kick right now so I wonder how it would taste in homemade ice cream 😉

  188. Nicole K. says:

    I absolutely adore spinach! I go through about one package a week…

  189. Mary kay says:

    Favorite greens is spinach. I drink a smoothy every morning and Love chocolate so this would be great.

  190. donna says:

    Can I only pick ONE favorite green vegetable? If so, then I guess I choose broccoli. Even though asparagus, brussell sprouts, spinach, english cucumbers, and zucchini aren’t far behind!

  191. Amy S says:

    Spinach!!! I usually have it in my own morning smoothies. I’d be glad to substitute Barlean’s though :-)

  192. Broccoli, especially roasted with a bit of olive oil. Then a squeeze of lemon on it at the end. Perfection!

  193. I’ve recently rediscovered brussels sprouts. Love them roasted and then put in vitamix with and butternut squash and vegetable or chicken broth to make a “to die for” soup. Also love kale. Would love to try these Chocolate Greens.

  194. Michele says:

    My favorite green veggie is spinach!

  195. Karen S says:

    My favorite green veggie is brocolli, cooked, raw, in salads, etc. I love it!
    Thanks so much to you and The Barleans Company for this great giveaway!

  196. Jaime says:

    If i had to pick, i would say asparagus on the grill…mmmmm. I would like to use this in my morning smoothy. The day gets away from me sometimes and i am left needing my greens for the day. sigh. looking forward to trying this whether i win it or not. thanks!

  197. Sonya says:

    I tried chard just a few days ago and really liked it. It was good in my green smoothie anyway 😉

  198. Leah says:

    Spinach is so yummy! I’d use it for paleo breakfast smoothies w/ coconut milk, almond butter and banana!

  199. Marty says:

    Hm…. I would say it’s cucumber… I love them especially fresh from the garden!

  200. Laura says:

    My favorite vegetable is definitely broccoli, I love it!

  201. Sarah D says:

    I would make this smoothie or a quick breakfast-on-the-run smoothie of this powder and milk. I’m nursing my 2-month old and always hungry, so this quick, healthy snack would be perfect. Thanks for the chance to win.

  202. Emma says:

    I love roasted beets…amazing!

    1. Emma says:

      oops, favorite GREEN veggie!

      I’d have to go with broccoli in that case. Or maybe spinach. Artichokes? Ack! Too many to choose from!

  203. Hey Katie!

    I absolutely adore Kale because of its versatility and high-density nutritional value. I love making Kale chips by topping pieces of Kale with oil and nutritional yeast and popping it into the oven. I also always add Kale to my smoothies – it blends with frozen fruits extremely well.

    If I got this giant container of Barleans Chocolate Silk I would start making some chocolate-flavoured smoothies, which I have never actually made! I make green + fruit smoothies every morning but I’m sure I’d love the chocolate variety (being a chocoholic and all… lol). I also think it would be a great way to get all of the nutrients I need to compliment my vegetarian diet.

    Take care :)


  204. Cat says:

    Couldn’t possibly pick a favorite green veggie. Love ’em all! (Ever tried fiddleheads?)
    I’d make chocolate banana smoothies every morning.

  205. Beckie says:

    Mmmmm! My fave veggie is the cucumber. :)

  206. Kate says:

    I can’t pick just one fave – split between broccoli, green beans, and zucchini! I would definitely try this shake if I won the powder or make chocolate pumpkin pudding.

  207. Addie says:

    If I won the powder I would sneak it into my husband’s diet. He is the pickiest eater EVER. He is 27 and has a list of about 10 foods he eats, none of them being vegetable. He eats chicken tenders, sausage and egg biscuits, strawberry frosted pop tarts, sausage gravy and biscuits, chocolate milkshakes, chocolate milk, bakery chocolate chip cookies and pizza shop pizza. Every now and then he will eat a banana but that is about as good as it gets. He is always complaining how tired he is and I tell him it’s because he is malnutritioned. Maybe this would be an answer for him!

  208. Jessica says:

    Favorite green veggie: spinach!

  209. JenniferH says:

    My favorite green veggie…sugar snap peas :) I grow them and they never make it inside, because I’m eating them as I’m gardening. Thanks for the wonderful blog. You have a great sense of humor and it really comes across in your writing.

    1. Dee says:

      I’m the same way when my hubby grows snap peas, or green beans for that matter! The only way he can keep me from eating them before I make it to the house is to spray them with a soap and cayenne spray . . . he says it’s for bugs . . . I think he might be lying! 😉

  210. Dee says:

    I love Spinach! Kind of in a Popeye way! For like 6 years after I had my gallbladder out I couldn’t touch lettuce or spinach . . . Then I found a Spinach Olive Oil, dried cherry, slivered almond sautee recipe (cooked veggies were never a problem, except for broccoli) and went hog wild, ate it nearly every day. Then I slowly started trying it raw! Yay, it didn’t make me sick!

    I also use spinach in all of my smoothie recipes. An easy way to get in an extra serving of veggies with breakfast!

  211. Cristina M. says:

    Kale, bok choy or any kind of lettuce!

  212. Katerimichelle says:

    Favorite green veggie: spinach
    I’d use this in my daily protein smoothie :)

  213. Lauren says:

    As so many others stated, I would have to say spinach is my favorite green….especially in smoothies or salads!

  214. Even though it’s not usually green in color (but it can be!), I count cauliflower as my fave “green” veggie!

  215. Patti says:

    My favorite veggie is roasted broccoli! I also love spinach, I would put this product in my green smoothies! YUM!

  216. Katherine D. says:

    If I won, I would make the most delicious green monster smoothies with this powder :)

    katherinedibello (at) gmail (Dot) com

  217. Andreea says:

    Definitely kale! I eat way too much of it.

  218. Melaina says:

    Favorite veggie… do I have to pick just one?! Kale, spinach, carrots!! This powder would be a GREAT way to supplement my post work-out shakes!!

  219. Kathleen says:

    Fav veggie of all time is spinach—broccoli. Even as a kid I devoured it! :) And this powder would be a great addition to chocolate-ify any of my post-workout smoothies!

  220. I would probably make a shake with it… I’ve been shake crazy lately!

  221. Taylor says:

    My favorite green veggie is probably broccoli! Although I do love swiss chard, kale, spinach… 😀

  222. Hmm, I love most all green vegetables. Zucchini, Brocolli, Green Bell Peppers, Spinach, etc. Bring them on!

  223. Robin G. says:

    My favorite would be spinach for sure! I love spinach salads with strawberries or mandarin slices with almonds and raspberry vinaigrette. And I would use the powder to make your lovely smoothie. Yum!

  224. Michelle says:

    I love broccoli! I eat it or green beans most dinners steamed with carrots. I try to always eat a green vegetable as at least one of three veggie sides each night with my chicken. I’m also on a smoothie kick now that I just bought a blender for the first time in my life (I have seen the light! haha). I’m enjoying experimenting with milk vs. yogurt vs. ice vs. powders. This giveaway would be right up my alley! :)

  225. Amy says:

    I love Brussels Sprouts!

  226. Dona says:

    Kale is the BOMB! I have seen the Barleans powder and was curious. I don’t think I would ever replace my kale and spinach with a powder, but I would love to add it in and pump up the nutritional quotient.

  227. Anita says:

    My favourite vegetable is a toss-up between asparagus, eggplant, and okra!

  228. Erin Rose says:

    MY favorite Green veggies are artichokes! they are soooo good dipped in goddess dressing!

  229. Maura says:

    I’d definitely use it in smoothies since it’s starting to warm up outside!!!!

  230. Chloe says:

    You are asking a tough question! My favorite at the moment would have to be spinach, I think! The first thing I though of using this for was your chocolate pancake recipe with the greens mix, although this is just a different brand! But this also sounds like it would taste good mixed with a berry flavored pancake batter too, or even peanut butter…mmm!

  231. Krista says:

    I am not really looking to win anything, since I live in France, and that might be a long trip for that container to make (if I did win, you could send it to my mom in Houston!). My real point in commenting is to tell you that you inspired the making of a delicious milkshake containing the following ingredients:
    Large banana
    A bunch of pitted, frozen cherries
    Greek style yogurt (sheep’s milk, but you could do silken tofu, I would think)
    Cocoa powder
    Agave syrup
    Soy milk

    It got a nice, creamy wine color, and since I love chocolate covered cherries, I found it oh so yummy. Can’t believe I had never thought to do that before. Thanks for the inspiration! Hope you can get frozen cherries there. Not sure how the jarred kind would fare.

  232. Karen D. says:

    I am absolutely in love with kale! Kalicious smoothie, kale and soba noodles, sauteed with garlic, raw kale massaged salad… I love it. I would live to try chocolate greens. Sounds wonderful.

  233. Katie Henderson says:

    Lima beans! Beans are..kind of a vegetable, right? If not….okra!

  234. Wanda says:

    Favorite green? It’s a toss up at the moment between green beans (very lightly cooked) and broccoli.

  235. I LOVE the consistency that frozen fruit gives to smoothies! I’m hooked! I make mine thick enough to eat with a spoon…who would have thought that “fruit” smoothies could be so indulgent!!

  236. Emily says:

    I looooooooooooooooveeeee spinach!

  237. KT says:

    My favorite green veggie (and veggie in general for that matter) is green bell peppers!! I love the crunch!!

  238. Ash says:

    Favorite green vegetable has to be cucumbers, but if it needs to be leafy….arugula!

  239. Suzie says:

    MMM, I love me a good smoothie or healthy shake, especially chocolate! My favorite green vegetable will have to spinach, its so versatile and healthy! But honestly love them all. Thanks for the post!

  240. Kendra says:

    I would love to use this in our smoothies when I run out of greens or when we need a break from the ones we’ve been eating!

  241. Danielle says:

    Right now, like the rest of the world, I seem to be all about kale. Poor broccoli, I’m neglecting you so.

  242. Krista says:

    P.S. I forgot to tell you what I’d do with that powder. I’d make that same shake again, but trying it with the powder to see the results. And, I think my favorite green veggie might vary depending on my mood. My first thought was rocket salad. Love its pepperiness. But, I really LOVE kale. I can’t get it here in France. It’s like they don’t even know that it exists, which makes me sad. I would eat it all the time if I could. I haven’t had much success growing it yet though.

  243. Sophia says:

    My favorite green veggie would be a tie between broccoli and artichokes!
    If I won this chocolate silk greens powder, I would give it my mother- Because she has celiacs disease she needs all the help she can get to get more nutrition into her diet!

  244. Stacey says:

    I would use this for my 6 yr old who has a strong food aversion and low weight from it. His doctor prescribed boost and he can’t stand it. Frankly, all the additives make me question whether it has any benefit. I would like to blend this with some thick pure coconut milk in hope that he and my 2 other kids will drink it.

    My favorite green is all of them but maybe kale hits the top

  245. mm says:

    Spinach! It’s so versatile.

  246. Iris H. says:

    Fresh broccoli is my fav green veggie! I bet this product would be great in some greek yogurt as an evening snack/dessert! Can’t wait to try it!

  247. My favorite green vegetable is broccoli! When steamed right? Mmmmgmgmgm

  248. Katherine C. says:

    I would totally use these in my black bean brownies recipe, because then I’m only a food group away from them meeting all my nutritional requirements. In a brownie.

  249. Al says:

    I would have to say spinach. It tastes great and it is so versatile! :]

  250. Aja says:

    My favorite green veggie has to be broccoli. Or spinach. If it’s green and a vegetable I will most likely eat it, really.

  251. Lorissa says:

    Ah this looks delish! Definitely would use it in almost every smoothie/”ice cream”/milkshake I make. (which is a lot) I feel like this would b perfect in the healthy shamrock shake! Getting hungry just thinking about it. Mmmm

    As for my favorite green veggie…that’s a toughie…probably broccoli! Steamed with lemon, raw, with mustard, cooked in olive oil…they’re great no matter what yah do!

  252. Tina says:

    Favorite Green – Spinach!! Especially on pizza or in omelets!! I love to try new things so have really enjoyed coming across your blog (the non-avacado guac dip was a HUGE hit yesterday as part of our St. Patrick’s Day fun!!). I find new products intriguing and have never heard of Barlean’s Greens…would love to check it out. Sounds like it might be good mixed in with several of your recipes. And, if you can bake with it, I’d for sure try to use it to make some healthy but yummy after school snacks for the kids!! Always trying to sneak in some extra nutrients since they are quite the picky eaters! :) Thanks for sharing!

  253. Christen says:

    Ooh, favorite green veggie…definitely broccoli!

  254. Laurie B says:

    My favorite green veggie is kale. I’d use this powder to try your recipe!

  255. Denise says:

    Peas, green beans, asparagus, kale….the list is endless and the possibilities endless…

  256. dc says:

    Hmm… favorite.. that’s a tough one, but I’d say a top fav veggie is kale, the dark red kind, or the flat lacinato variety. Although I do think spinach is probably the most versatile (easiest to use in recipes, sub for lettuce, used in smoothies etc.) I’ve never tried a ‘veggie’ powder, and not sure I nutritionally need it, but it does sound intriguing and would be fun to try!

  257. Jena says:

    Kale. Blend it, bake it, drizzle a dressing—we’re learning to love it!
    I think I could use the green powder in all our smoothies, but especially in mint choc chip. Yum!

  258. Amanda says:

    That looks fantastic! My favorite green vegetable is grilled asparagus, and I would love to use the chocolate silk in my oatmeal :)

  259. Melissa says:

    I love asparagus….. Especially with garlic sauce.

  260. Tricia says:

    My favorite green veggie would have to be fresh spinach! Yay! I would really like this powder so I can try this smoothie. :)

  261. Cathy says:

    Hi Katie,
    I love broccoli! I would use it a lot, everything I eat I try to make nutritious, bc I want to be healthy and I am most likely sharing it with a two yr old. When I make your cakebatter milkshake I add toddler supreme which is a vanilla vitamin drink I bought when my doctor said I should by feeding my son cows milk. However my two yr old did not like it, but he loves it in your shakes. If you say this powder is good, I bet it is delish. I love all your recipes, I have desert everyday sometimes twice. Almost everyday we have one of your breakfasts. Anyways I would use the chocolate greens, to make shakes, double chocolate cookies anyone?, oh chocolate pancakes (or maybe even your red velvet pancakes), 5minute chocolate cake, the ideas could be endless! Thanks!

  262. Beth says:

    I will have to go with spinach and broccoli.

  263. Sam says:

    My favorite green veggie is either spinach or broccoli.

    I would use the powder in my morning smoothie. Nothing beats chocolate!

  264. Shannon C says:

    I love kale. I’d use this powder for myself and to sneak in some greens for the kids. They love smoothies.

  265. Elizabeth says:

    I love the nero di toscana kale! And asparagus. And basically every vegetable I’ve ever tasted.

  266. Angela says:

    I love spinach!

  267. Jennifer says:

    My favorite green vegetable is broccoli. I never get tired of it. Mmmmm……..broccoli….. :)

  268. Deborah says:

    Greens…collards, mustards, and turnip greens.

  269. Tracy says:

    BBQ’d asparagus

  270. Elaine says:

    Probably a tie between broccoli and spinach!

  271. Rebecca says:

    Absolutely LOVE broccoli. But not raw. Must be cooked with a bit of a bite still left.

  272. Kayla says:

    My favorite green vegetable is probably spinach. But, I also like asparagus! Do avocados count as a vegetable? haha. I would use this in LOTS of stuff!! Smoothies, puddings, maybe your raw chocolate pie… basically everything! Oatmeal, yumm!! Now I really hope I get this!!

  273. mary says:

    I LOVE Brussel Sprouts! LOVE THEM!!

    I have never had this chocolate mix before so I would probably try it in everything possible that could have chocolate :)

  274. Carry says:

    Spinach and mushrooms are my favorite veggies. I think I’d use the chocolate greens in my pancake batter. Always looking for ways to sneak veggies into the kids’ breakfast!

  275. Beth H says:

    My favorite changes with the season-right now I’m going with spinach!

  276. I love broccoli.. and spinach. And asparagus.. I love vegetables. I probably wouldn’t need this green powder, either, but it never hurts! You had me at chocolate, too. 😉

  277. Gabby says:

    favorite green vegetable: broccoli!

  278. Jennifer Heether says:

    my absolute favorite green is kale! I have never tried the chocolate greens, now im so intrigued!!!

  279. Lauren says:

    I love pretty much all greens, but brussel sprouts probably take the cake (yes, I’m weird). And I would probably use Silk Greens in a banana softserve.

  280. Molly says:

    Brussels Sprouts are definitely my favorite green vegetable. I could eat roasted brussels sprouts anyday!

  281. Sunny says:

    i love broccoli!

  282. Kylie says:

    My favorite green veggie is definitely roasted brussel sprouts! And I would use the powder for smoothies of course :)

  283. Shannon says:

    I’d have to say that my favorite green vegetable would be the familiar ol’ steamed broccoli. So delicious, even plain. As for this fancy Chocolate Silk, I’d probably through some in my morning oat bran along side my PB and banana.

  284. Ashley says:

    I think it’s quite obvious how I would use this if I won…(see above!) :) Thanks for the giveaway!

  285. Michele says:

    Hi Katie! My favorite green vegetable is hands down BROCOLLI! I love it in garlic olive oil and so does my 7 yr old!!

  286. Shaina says:

    Zucchini! There are so many ways to use this green in both savory & sweet dishes :)

  287. Stevi says:

    oh my goodness, I’ve never heard of this stuff. It looks amazing!! I love broccoli and kale!! Oh and brussel sprouts too!!

  288. Jean Weiss says:

    My favorite green vegetable is definitely spinach, as you can use it in such a variety of recipes; from sweet smoothies to savory salads.

  289. Broccoli! Zucchini! Kale! Brussel sprouts! I love them all :)

  290. Jennifer says:

    I love so many green veggies it’s hard to choose. Maybe artichokes would be it. That’s my “turkey” on thanksgiving…a big fat artichoke!

    I’d use the powder any way you recommend. Haven’t steered me wrong yet. I’ve never heard of the stuff but plan to look into it. Thanks!

  291. Linda says:

    Brussel Sprouts, Spinach, Cabbage I love them, but not as much as I love chocolate

  292. Shawnna T-EL says:

    My favorite green are Collard Greens….love them made with spicy chili peppers! If I won this chocolate powder, I would use this to attempt my raw chocolate mousse one more time. I made it with a recipe that called for carob powder the first time, and let’s just say I was less than impressed with it…BLECH!!!

  293. angela says:

    i like roasted broccoli best (with garlic and pharm), but i like romaine lettuce, cucumbers, and avocado lots too

  294. How about this one:

    1. Oh it didnt work it was supposed to be a super big “greater than” sign! Anyway this sounds like a great giveaway. I’ve actually never had powdered anything before not even protein powders seeing as I find it more fun to eat the actual food but like you anything chocolate is welcome.

  295. Kristin says:

    I would definitely make smoothies of some sort every day if I won the Barleans Chocolate Silk Greens… I am so guilty of not eating enough veggies every :(

  296. Anastasia says:

    My fave green veggie is celery and I would use the silk to make my morning shakes :)

  297. Kathy says:

    My favorite recipe has to be spinach. I love them in green smoothies, though I don’t drink them much.
    I’d use the powder in this smoothie, or any other smoothie I want to add some nutritients to!

  298. Victoria says:

    I would use it to make chocolate almond butter!! :)

  299. Ashley says:

    My all time favorite has got to be spinach, but I’ve been on a huge kale kick lately!

  300. Cathy says:

    My favorite green veggie right now is Brussels Sprouts. Wow. Never thought I’d say that. I have a new recipe for roasting them though and YUM!!

    This smoothie looks delicious btw!! :-)

  301. Kathryn says:

    I love spinach! and Id use the powder to make that shake :)

  302. Jenny says:

    Hi, Katie! I’ve been reading your blog for a couple of months now; however, this is my first comment. I don’t remember how I stumbled across your site, or what I was looking for, but I was instantly drawn to your outrageous looking desserts, and the fact that they are healthy is such a huge factor (which, you obviously already know!). I follow you on Facebook and Pinterest, and I come back to your blog every day. I love to eat, cook, bake, and find ways to live healthier, and your blog is one of the best I’ve seen. I really admire what you’re doing (and your chocolate tooth – because as long as you have that, you’ll keep posting). Every photo is gorgeous, and every recipe looks divine. I am not a vegan, but I am trying to find ways to eat and live better for my myriad health problems, but I still want to enjoy my life, including what I eat! So, thank you for your concerted efforts (and all the taste-testing!) in making your readers’ lives, attitudes, and appetites healthier and happier! You and your words are a real blessing. Now, I shall take a crack at the blog question, and at winning that giant container of greens. :-) My favorite greens are broccoli, kale, and spinach; I love the versatility of all of them and I eat them raw, cooked, baked, in salads, on pizza, in smoothies, in soups…the options are practically limitless. *I will say, though, that I recently tried your roasted cauliflower with BBQ sauce, which is now an added favorite even though it’s not a green veg, but worth you knowing, due to the fact that I’ve never been a fan of the texture or flavor of the brainy-looking stuff, but I know it is so good for me, and you devised a method that has cured my cauliflower blues! But, I digress. As for what I would do with the Barlean’s Chocolate Silk Greens, I’m sure I would add it to smoothies, but I might also try it in some sort of pudding, mixed into an ice cream, or possibly in bars. If you create any lovely recipes using the greens, please post them. Thanks, Katie!

  303. Kate says:

    I LOVE cucumbers! They are perfectly refreshing with feta cheese or hummus :)

  304. maija says:

    fresh spinach

  305. Teresa G says:

    KALE…hands down! Raw, please…now I want to make a salad just thinkin about it! I’ve gotten into vegan baking lately and would like to see how I could incorporate this powder into some recipes for the added health factor~

  306. Beth says:

    Wthout a doubt, green beans!!!

  307. jennifer says:

    I just got on the kale bandwagon. I actually may have been doing so many years ago when I would go out to eat and they used it as a garnish on my plate, but I actaully ate it. I knew it was good for me. Now it is now mainstream at all supermarket stores. I have it in my stir fry and make Kale chips. I wonder how nice the Barlean’s cocoa would be sprinkled on the chips. I can only know if I am the lucky one who gets this give away; I don’t think it is available up here on the Pacific Coast of BC.

  308. mariah says:

    My favorite veggie is spinach :)

  309. Susan says:

    My favorite green veggie is raw spincah for sure :)

  310. Jenn says:

    Spinach is my favorite green veggie! I would love to try this powder in my daily smoothie. I am always looking for a way to include more chocolate – wait, I mean green veggies into my diet!!

  311. Clarissa says:

    My fave is probably spinach because it’s neutral tasting so you can throw it in pretty much anything. :)

  312. Lissa says:

    love green smoothies…wish I had more time to make them in the morning. I would definitely experiment with this powder in smoothies!

  313. Rebecca Gillespie says:

    Currently my favorite green veggie is brussels sprouts! Roasted in the oven they are soooo yummy!

  314. Bobbi Philson says:

    Love kale chips.

  315. Jaime Jones says:

    Broccoli!! With spinach as a close second.

  316. Natalie M. says:

    I love, love asparagus….especially bacon-wrapped, roasted asparagus!!!

  317. Karen says:

    Fave green veggie? Definitely broccoli!

  318. sarah g says:

    I would mix them in oatmeal and have chocolate oatmeal!

  319. Donna says:

    Favorite veggies are spinach, kale and brocolli. I get protein as well as all the other good stuff from spinach and brocolli. I would use the chocolate silk in spaghetti or 3-bean chilli. Currently I add in a bit of cinnamon. So this would add some extra zing!

  320. kim says:

    I love broccoli with cheese sauce… does my dog! We are both fighting for leftovers. But since he can’t have anything with chocolate, the Barleans would be all mine so I’d gladly give him the broccoli leftovers!


  321. my favorite green vegetable is a toss up between spinach, brussels sprouts, and broccoli!

  322. Allyson says:

    My favorite green vegetable is brussels sprouts.

  323. Stephanie Davis says:

    My favorite green veggie would have to be broccoli. Or spinach. Or asparagus. Can I only leave one?

  324. 91% Chocolate Lover says:

    My favorite green vegetable is zucchini, because of zucchini bread. But kale is awesome too.

  325. Rebecca says:

    My favorite green vegetable is celery!!

  326. Brianna says:

    My favorite green veggies are Brussels, spinach, and asparagus! I’d use the powder for smoothies and to flavor delicious oatmeal! Great alternative :)

  327. Molly says:

    My favorite green vegetable is Zucchini because you can eat it raw or bake breads, cakes, muffins, etc. with it!

  328. Meghan says:

    green veggie? Green beans or zucchini. yummmmm..

    I’ve never heard of the powder though, sounds amazing!! I would probably use all of it way too quickly…and put it in everything I could imagine to put it in….

  329. Heather Johnson says:

    I love arugula and spinach. If I win I will portion use it in my coffee :-)

  330. Sara says:

    Oh my goodness, my favorite green vegetable? Difficult. Very difficult. I guess I’ll go with zucchini, but greens and green beans are a close second and third. And what about broccoli? And brussels sprouts? Oh and basil? YUUUUUM.

  331. Cyhyraeth says:

    Artichokes. I skip the fancy versions that call for heavy sauces- just boil the things whole and then strip the veggie-meat from the leaves with your teeth. You’re almost guaranteed to savor them, though that’s mostly because there’s no way to eat them quickly because the outer leaves have spiny little claws that bite back if you’re careless. And the artichoke heart? Like a little furry treasure.

    Er, minus the fur. Always scoop out the fur before eating. Nom.

  332. Bethany says:

    I looove asparagus, zucchini, and artichokes. :)

  333. jessie says:

    Definitely kale with peanut sauce. Can’t get enough!

  334. Kayla says:

    Cucumbers hands down!

  335. My favorite green veggie, and my favorite food, is the artichoke!

  336. Melissa says:

    I could never play favorites with veggies–I love them all! I would definitely put this in a smoothie–been looking for something to change mine up!

  337. Ana says:

    My favorite green veggie is CHARD! i cant get enough of it! my garden just explodes with chard every summer.

  338. Kayla says:

    Accidentally hit enter before I typed in my email address! :) And yes, I like cucumbers.

  339. Sue says:

    Favorite green veggie would be Broccoli!!

  340. Tamu says:

    I’m thinking I could use this to boost the chocolate frosting shots recipe you posted. Even though it started out a little bitter from all the cocoa powder (and required a lot of sweetener), it was excellent. Esp. on the top of the 1 minute chocolate cake!
    Anyway, my favorite green vegetables might be kale, collard, and turnip greens.

  341. I’m not sure I could pick only one. I love all leafy greens…kale, spinach, arugula, collards, swiss chard. I don’t think I’ve met a green veggie I don’t like! I could use this powder for anything and everything chocolate…I routinely make my S’mores oatmeal
    that I could use this powder in since I don’t have any other veggies in this meal.

  342. Anna says:

    kale, definitely kale.

  343. Michelle C. says:

    My favorite green veggie is definitely spinach

  344. Emma says:

    Hey Katie! Can’t wait to try this recipe! My favorite vegetable is spinach–it can be used in everything! If I win I will definitely use it to make your smoothie recipe and other great smoothies!

    By the way, I also just started a veg blog. It’s not much now, but if you ever want to check it out that would be awesome! Happy sunday!

  345. Kate Hollstrom says:

    Favorite green veggie: Spinach. It’s the one green veggie I can hide in my morning shake and not taste! This powder would be awesome!

  346. SPINACH! And if I won the giveaway I’d make this smoothie because it looks mighty fine!

  347. Marissa says:

    My favorite green veggie is definitely zucchini! And since I don’t just want to leave my comment at that, I’ll also say that my husband and I would use this powder every day in a yummy fruit smoothie that we do for breakfast; fruits and veggies all in one, PLUS chocolate what else could be better when you’re 25 weeks pregnant like I am?! 😀

  348. Brittney says:

    Favorite green vegetable is Kale, hands down

  349. Danielle says:

    My favourite green vegetable is DEFINITELY kale. mmmmm!

  350. Mandy Cheshire says:

    Hmmm… I eat the most of spinach and kale… But I have been craving baby bok choy!

  351. Sandra says:

    Love all your yummy recipes! I would use the powder with peanut butter for the center of homemade Reese’s cups! :)

  352. Jassy says:

    I <3 broccoli!

  353. Sunnie says:

    I’m gonna be plain honest here . . .
    I love brussel sprouts. LOVE THEM. They are like teeny cabbage babies . . . yummy, sweet, a little crunchy, and delicious drizzled with Bragg’s Liquid Aminos and a little grated black pepper on top. I could fall over just thinking about them.

    Franklin was my favorite show when I was little (remember the little green turtle?). He always hated brussel sprouts though, and I could never quite relate . . .

  354. marti says:

    favorite green vegetable?? how to pick just one!! i would have to say is such a treat, and i could eat it every day! my roomie and i call spring asparagus season! her family picks it wild and we have enough to literally have it at every meal and we DO! :) sooo good grilled, steamed, boiled..roasted…yummmmm

  355. Jo says:

    My favorite green vegetable changes on a weekly basis but lacinato kale is always wayy up there! Green beans are pretty amazing too, especially raw dipped in hummus!

    I would love to add this powder to smoothies and maybe brownies? mmmm

  356. Sasha Lopez says:

    Spinach!! Great fresh as greens in everything including salads, can go into almost any smoothie without harming the taste for those not a fan and so healthy.

  357. Melissa says:

    Broccoli! I know that I don’t eat enough of my veggies despite my love for all of them. I would use this to ensure that I get more of the required nutrients that my body needs. That, and a chocolate fix at the same time! :)

  358. Carlie says:

    my favorite green veggie is cucumber! :) Or green bell peppers-it’s hard to choose just one!

  359. Ashley says:

    I used to hate it, but since I discovered kale chips: I love me some kale.

  360. Lola says:

    I love all greens – in green smoothies. Yum!

  361. mrsluckypants says:

    Well first I’d try your chocolate silk smoothie and hope my kids would love it. Evil laugh. Getting more veggies/nutrients in them would be a plus. Favorite green veggie would have to be asparagus or brocolli or green beans. It’s hard to choose. Thanks for reviewing this powder, I might have never heard about it if it weren’t for you.

  362. Katie says:

    I have yet to find a green vegetable that I do not like. Asparagus, cucumber, spinach, kale, bell peppers…any peppers, broccoli, beans, peas, artichoke, squash… I love them all. And I would LOVE to try out this giant container of Barleans Chocolate Silk. Because, next to vegetables, chocolate is at the top of my list! I’d add it to my daily shake. Yum!

  363. Lauren says:

    I love almost all green veggies, but I’d have to say spinach is my favorite!

  364. Dina says:

    sounds perfect for smoothies for the kids too!! love getting in some more greens into their diets!
    my favorite green- Kale, in smoothies!

  365. Kat says:

    My favorite green vegetable is a no brainer….BROCCOLI!!!!

  366. Claire says:

    Broccoli! Regardless of how it’s prepared, it’s delicious. I would probably either use this powder in milkshakes (like you did) orrrr possibly in oatmeal.

  367. Lisa says:

    I have to choke down most green vegetables unless they are roasted or disguised in an omelet. Which is why I would really like to try the Barlean’s powder! :)

  368. jan says:


  369. Anna Mortensen says:

    Hmmm… My favorite green veggie is kale! And I ate it for the first time about 6 months ago. It was love at first bite. I imagine I’d use this in any number of things. Smoothies for sure. But it also sounds like it would be good in chocolate fudge cake and chocolate pumpkin bars. Mmmmmm…

  370. Moni Meals says:

    Love this shake recipe! I love a thick shake always…HAS to be thick!

    I would use it in shake, oatmeal, pancakes, baking, you get the picture. 😉

    Hope you had a nice St. Pattis!

  371. Yang says:

    Favorite green veggie is for sure asparagus! Love it when grilled, sauteed, or even steamed with a splash of favorite dressing!

  372. Laura says:

    My favorite green vegetable is broccoli. I can’t get enough! I think it’s because my mom was addicted to broccoli when she was pregnant with me.

  373. Kristen says:

    Kale is my favorite green veggie!!

  374. Deb says:

    Kale! I will give the chocolate silk a try in my daily green smoothie. Thanks for letting us know about this product.

  375. Anonymous says:

    arugula! i’ve gone through 3 1/2 bags in one week. granted i used one bag to make arugula chips.

  376. Laura says:

    I like a lot of green veggies, but if I had to pick a favorite, it would be asparagus!!!!

  377. Monisha says:

    I love baby spinach ! Thanks for the giveaway.

    1. monica says:

      Pretty name!

  378. Carrie says:

    Hey Katie! First, cucumbers for the win! In ANY form ( I ❤ pickles!). I would make a super-healthy chocolate protein bar (inspired by you) to be used after working out.

    This looks fabulous by the way. :-) I’m currently water/juice fast and pop in over here for the occasional food porn. You’re pictures are almost lickable!

  379. LJ Briar says:

    Favourite green vegetable definitely spinach! Adaptable, goes great in everything, and my baby rats love it too.

  380. allie says:

    arugula or cilantro, mmmm. i’ve eaten 3 1/2 bags in one week! granted one bag was used for arugula chips.

  381. I love a thick smoothie so this is lovely for me! My favorite green vegetable is broccoli.

  382. jeannine says:

    Would love to win so I could try this….looks amazing.

  383. Dawn says:

    Math symbol for way greater than is >> the more > the more it is greater than…

  384. Melissa says:

    I would definately incorporate this into my smoothie routine. I have a green smoothie every morning, so this would be a great way to mix things up.

  385. Lea says:

    I don’t think I could pick a favorite green vegetable, they’re all so good! I’ve been on a serious brussels sprout kick lately though!

  386. Julie says:

    My favorite green veggie is broccoli & lettuce. Love lettuce, any kind. Oh and sugar peas too.

  387. Roxanne says:

    This looks amazing! I would love to get one of these Barlean’s. As for favorite greens, it would have to be spinach. I love it raw, cooked, or mixed in my smoothies. It’s the best!

  388. Hannie says:

    Asparagus! Chocolate tofu mousse for sure :)

  389. monica says:

    That’s tough to answer…but ill say currently organic spianch in my green smoothie!

  390. Megan says:

    I love spinach!

  391. Ellen says:

    My favorite green veggie? Well, there’s a lot of options… but I’ll have to go with broccoli! I’ve loved it since I was little! And I definitely use the powder in smoothies… and maybe oatmeal?

  392. Lexi_in_joon says:

    Gosh, I LOVE all greens. I guess if I had to choose a favorite it would be
    brocoli! Super filling and so yummy. I’d use the powder in this smoothie, oatmeal, and maybe add to the graham cracker recipe for a chocolatey twist!

  393. Laura L says:

    hmmm….i think spinach and asparagus. but there sure are a lot of good ones out there. you really sold me on this recipe, seriously craving this now! hope i win! or that i find the powder somewhere soon!

  394. My favorite green vegetable is brussel sprouts! Sooooo good, especially roasted!

  395. Emma says:

    Asparagus! Or brussel sprouts. Or green beans. Ahh I don’t know I love them all!

  396. LORI HURD says:

    I would say asparagus is my favorite green veg. I would probally use this product in my daily smoothies

  397. Crystal says:

    Whoo hoo!! Give-a-way time!!!

    Face green veggie? I have many: broccoli, cucumber, spinach, asparagus, chayote (it’s a small light green squash-like thing), green peppers, celery…do I need to go on? And I make smoothies daily, so I’d just incorporate the Chocolate greens into which ever smoothie I decided to make. (Today it’s the mint chocolate chop smoothie you blogged about for St. Patty’s day, but without the mint…so it’s a green vanilla chocolate chip flavoured smoothie!!)

  398. Heather Levasseur says:

    My infant has a SERIOUS sweet tooth – while I was pregnant it gave ME a serious sweet tooth that never really went away when he was born and I started breastfeeding. I’ve always loved greens – spinach and kale are my favorites, but since this baby boy has taken over my system, I find myself struggling to choose the good stuff over the “good” stuff. One way or another, I think I’m going to have to procure myself some of this product, but getting a stash to start with will certainly help bring me and my munchkin to a happy harmony!!

  399. Joanne says:

    Yum, that looks delish Katie! Favorite green veggie? It is impossible to pick one…LOL. Has to be peas, fresh of course, or asparagus-love that green stick! Oh and baby bok choi, Yum! Wanna try your Chocolate Silk Smoothie with the barlean’s or maybe just some guilt free chocolate almond milk!

  400. Joelle says:

    It’s gotta be asparagus. Or maybe spinach… Or brussel sprouts!! There are too many good green veggies!! I can’t pick just one :)

  401. Etain says:

    I love Spinach! I add some fresh green leaves to all my smoothies. For variety I like Collards, Kale, Beet, and Turnip greens too. I’d love some of the Barlean’s because I’m betting it contains some wheat or barley grass, and I rarely find that fresh. :)

  402. Holli says:

    Spinach! I may be slowly moving toward kale but for now it’s still spinach! Hmm I’m thinking the powder would go well in some chocolate dehydrator cookies! I’ve actually made some of your raw batter/dough recipes and then shaped them in cookies to make in the dehydrator. Works pretty well! I especially like the lower sugar chocolate chip cookie dough peanut butter style.

    But mostly the barlean’s powder would be a great way to get some veggies in the drinks and shakes I make for my boyfriend. (I can only use so much spinach before he notices)

    And the math symbol for “way greater than” is just >>
    (Physics major here ;))

    1. Holli says:

      Now that I think about it, favorite green veggie to eat just all on its own would be raw green beans. The only vegetable I would touch when I was little. And it HAD to be raw.

  403. Lisa says:

    hmm, favorite green vegetable? I have so many that I can’t pick just one…love green beans, green peppers, asparagus, spinach, broccoli, wow, I could go on and on :)

  404. Debbie says:

    I have loved broccoli for as long as i can remember. The other kids would tease me because I had broccoli for lunch so often.
    I make a green smoothie for breakfast most mornings. I would love to try the Chocolate SIlk Greens in it.

  405. Stephanie says:

    Another Steph who votes for spinach. But that’s a really tough choice!

  406. Lisa says:

    I love any kind of leafy green that I can blend into my smoothie and not taste but get all the phytonutrients from… I would use this powder to enhance my smoothies- would also come in handy when I run out of greens or when I am in a hurry and don’t really have time to clean my greens…

  407. Breanne says:

    My favorite green vegetables are peas! So sweet and delicious–like nature’s summer candy. But I also LOVE bokchoy which is mostly green.

    Thanks Katie!

  408. Spinach and kale are my go to greens, but chocolate would be a huge improvement

  409. ashley says:

    fave green veggie is def broccoli!!!!

  410. Pat says:

    I LOVE spinach and broccoli. I would use it to make frozen mocha!

  411. Aimee says:

    Heck, I’ll tell you both. My favorite green veggie is broccoli. It’s so darn delicious. And if I had this powder I would use it daily for my daughter who has a hard time consuming enough veggies but has no problem with tasty treats!

  412. Meri says:

    I just tried this recipe, and it was sooooo good! I used cocoa powder and sweetened it with agave nectar. Heaven! Anyway, as for green veggies, it’s a tie between broccoli and spinach

  413. Gwendolyn says:

    My most fav veggie is kale. Ive recently made a lot of choices in our family, to be healthy. Weve cut out meat and dairy, aside from cheese. That’ll come later :). I’ve been concentrating on feeding my family more natural fruits and vegetables rather than processed foods. It’s been a full time job finding recipes and foods that are healthy and yet still taste good. I was so happy to find your site! I know it will help out immensely! My four girls’ ages range from 5 to 13. I want to teach them that healthy food can taste good too! My girls love smoothies for breakfast. If I won the powder, I would use it in their smoothies :)

  414. Stephanie says:

    My favorite green veggie is asparagus!! It’s funny how our taste buds change when we get older…I used to hate it as a child!

  415. Shannon says:

    I love carmalized Brussels sprouts. Sounds weird but they are so, so good just chop em up and sautée with some garlic, olive oil, and brown sugar! Yum!! Love my greens in any form though, spinach smoothies, big salads, kale chips..

  416. Becca says:

    I love spinach! And green bell peppers!

  417. Shadé says:

    I can’t decide between kale and avocado! Really I love all the green vegetables except Lima beans and green peas!! Lol

  418. Celeste Cochran says:

    Yummmm, I’d use this to make your delicious Chocolate Silk Smooothie! My favorite green vegetable is probably spinach!

    Thanks so much, Katie!

  419. Gabrielle says:

    My favorite green vegetable is zucchini! :)

  420. Kristi Bailey says:

    My favorite green veggie is asparagus.
    I would use this product as
    you described in your recipe & give it to my
    Three girls. They do not eat
    nearly enough greens & I know it would be
    good because it was tried & tested by you.
    I may venture out from there to try additional
    breakfast smoothies. I am always looking for
    something that is healthy & taste good for all
    of us!

  421. June says:

    Favorite greens: asparagus, spinach and broccoli! This would also be fabulous if you subbed nut butter in for the strawberries! Or even some mint leaves

  422. Melissa says:

    Spinach is my favorite green vegetable!

  423. Nicole says:

    My favorite green veggie is probably spinach and I would use this product in my smoothies all the time!!

  424. LDT says:

    I suppose green olives don’t count as a vegetable…
    I love sugar snap peas, snow peas, spinach, basil, kale, celery, broccoli, brussel sprouts… I could go on. I suppose if I had to pick a favourite it would be broccoli.

    By the sounds of it, this Chocolate Silk Greens would be great in almond milk ice cream or pudding… Darn, now I’m craving chocolate!

  425. Ilene says:

    It’s hard to choose one but I guess spinach.

  426. suzanne says:

    I love green veggies – I have to stop myself from adding too much spinach to my smoothie in the morning and eat gobs of veggies all day – spinach , kale, broccoli, brussel sprouts, asparagus….to hard to pick just one! I still love the powders though and especially for my boyz who are not quite the veggie lovers I am! We have a big smoothie every morning (when I am stocking up at the store – the employees look at me like I have a disease or something!)

  427. Diane says:

    Definitely… Brocoli ! Cooked with onions. Yum :)

  428. Bri Williams says:

    Kale for the win!!!

  429. Michelle C. says:

    Spinach or asparagus!

  430. Allayne Clegg says:

    asparagus…and I’d use the powder in smoothies!

  431. Nicole says:

    Baby spinach. Broccoli. Roasted green beans. No, wait! My mom’s kale soup! Mustard greens. Baby lettuces. Do I have to pick just one??

  432. Heather McClees says:

    Hi Katie! LOVELY post! I love the new product, and would definitely be using it in my morning smoothies, WITH my favorite green vegetable- asparagus! I mix asparagus, kale, spinach, stevia, Artisana coconut butter, almond milk, and a chocolate green powder ( usually Amazing Grass ) into my smoothie with lots of ice, topped off with some blueberries. It is DELICIOUS, and your new recipe looks awesome!: ) Thanks for the giveaway opportunity!

  433. Tammy Chaney says:

    Kale! It’s the best for me! :)

  434. Raiganp says:

    My favorite vegetable would be broccoli! I eat it everyday. I also have no problem getting my vegetable intake. I would use the powder in shakes and maybe add some to pancakes!

  435. Lola says:

    My favorite green vegetable is brussels sprouts! I love them roasted!

  436. Angela says:

    I can’t pick a favourite!! Brussel sprouts, spinach, kale, cucumber, sugar snap peas… STOP ME!!
    I would probably take all of them and blend them up with that chocolate powder!!

  437. Stacey says:

    My favorite green veggie is either kale, or spinach, or brussel sprouts – I really like them all! What would I do with this powder- toss it into my daily shake!

  438. Camilla says:

    I don’t think I have a favorite 😮 I like many green veggies. If I *had* to pick though…I suppose broccoli…it’s pretty versatile…but also leafy greens in general can be used in a variety of ways, so they’re pretty cool, too.

  439. Tish says:

    I would like to try it in my spinach smoothie.

  440. favorite green veggie at the moment (i love my veggies) is broccoli and asparagus because its in season now!!

    this looks amazing and i’ve never seen a chocolate flavor! i would love to make this smoothie, maybe add some mint to it?

  441. Kathryn says:

    My favorite green vegetable is zucchini, good bbq, stir fried and made into bread! I would use the greens in my chocolate protein shake in the mornings

  442. Autum says:

    My favorite green veggie has to be Broccoli or Asparagus! Whichever I can get the best buy on! 😀

  443. Anna Mumau says:

    My favorite green veggie is SPINACH! I love it in salads, lasagna, smoothies, ice cream, and so much more. I would use Chocolate Silk in my protein shakes, in chocolate milk, and ice cream :-)

  444. sven says:

    Kale with lemon and asparagus please.

  445. Julie says:

    Chocolate taste, uh yum! Oh and the green parts are good for you too? Sounds like a win win!!

  446. Jenn TH says:

    I would the Chocolate Greens just how you suggested! It looks soooooo yummy. Jenn

  447. Barb says:

    Spinach — no wonder Popeye loved it! It can be worked into every meal. This is my first post on your site EVER. Thanks for so many great ideas and recipes.

  448. Karen says:

    I have the palate of a 5 year old so I routinely sneak vegetables into my diet. My blender could be considered medical equipment – lol.
    Greens in chocolate? Oh yeah!

  449. Elizabeth says:

    My favorite green veggie is broccoli!

  450. Hannah says:

    My favourite green veggies are kale chips and spinach blended into my smoothies.

  451. Sarah Spann says:

    I use chocolate powder almost everyday, whether on top of strawberries as a snack, mixed in peanut butter for a yummy chocolate version, or in protein shakes I drink every day after my runs! So I would use it every single day in my shakes for sure :)
    Oh and my favorite green vegetable would have to be either spinach or broccoli! :)

  452. Loie says:

    I know it’s weird, but I actually really love brussel sprouts. Roasted in the oven with olive oil + garlic.. YUM.

  453. Angie says:

    My favorite green veggie is spinach! A math symbol for WAY greater than: ++++> :)

  454. Ellyn says:


  455. gabi says:

    kale is my favorite!! love to make kale chips.

    i’d love to try the greens powder in this smoothie recipe :)

  456. Joslyn Ching says:

    I love love love peas, broccoli and brussel sprouts! My favorite green of all time has to be a three-way tie between peas, cabbage and brussel sprouts though…I could eat them all daily, and never grow tired of them!

    As for the chocolate powder, I’d love to try it in your chocolate fudge pie! Or even use it to make a chocolate sauce…green chocolate sauce? As long as it tastes good, I think I’m all for it!

  457. Leigh Steele says:

    Favorite green vegetable….baby zucchini! love them!

  458. Anne says:

    Green Beans are my favorite….although I am trying to learn to love more of them! I could definately use this poweder to make great shakes and get more greens in my diet.

  459. Cassie says:

    My favorite vegetable is broccoli! I can’t seem to get enough of it lately! :)

  460. heather says:

    My favorite green vegetable is green beans! And I would use the chocolate powder to try out this recipe!

  461. Lacey says:

    My favorite green vege is ALL of them! And I would use the powder to make my daughter healthy chocolate treats like ice cream :)

  462. Alyssa says:

    My go-to green is spinach, but there’s a raw food restaurant nearby that makes a kale salad that is just beyond! I’m trying to find a way to bribe the recipe out of them…
    I’ll bet one could make a nice chocolate green smoothie with this powder. Yum!!!!

  463. Vicki says:

    I hate most veggies, so I would use this to get some nutrition

  464. Lena says:

    I love celery! Everyone always thinks I’m so weird when I say that, but I really do. And it’s so fun munching it :)

  465. Molly says:

    I would have to go with avocado…okay okay so it is technically a fruit, but I love them sooo much! Or kale, I really like the heartiness of it and how dark green some varieties are…you just know it is bursting with healthy goodness! I would definitely use this powder with the strawberries, I love chocolate and strawberries!!

  466. Chantal says:


  467. Anu says:

    brussel sprouts!

  468. Jessica says:

    I loooove broccoli. Can’t get enough!

  469. Britany says:

    I love spinach; sautéed, fresh in a salad, or blended into a smoothie, so I would use this powder to help make mine and my toddler’s (who of course hates veggies but loves my fortified smoothies) even healthier.

  470. Kristen says:

    Its definitely hard to pick a favourite green veggie but since its thankfully in season I’d have to say asparagus. As much as I love chard, spinach, broccoli etc. etc. I eat asparagus by the pound. I grow my own delicious pencil thin spears but I don’t know that I’d ever be able to grow enough! The chocolate silk powder sounds great, I can’t wait to try it.

  471. I LOVE Kale.. but sometimes have a hard time getting my leafy greens in.. :)

  472. Miriam says:

    I would use the powder daily in my smoothie!

  473. Pamela Wobig says:

    Baby spinach leaves for sure!

  474. Definitely spinach! Eat it everyday, at least once :)

  475. Vicki says:

    My favorite green veggie – home grown peas! Thanks Katie, and thanks Barleans! I love Barleans Oils. I’d love this chocolate powder for making yummy smoothies for my family.

  476. Heather says:

    ummm…..sugar snap peas. As someone who often falls short on the veggie end of things I would love to try this! Also, can you really get TOO MANY veggies???? :)

  477. Selah says:

    I just made chocolate covered kale for the first time and it was amazing!!! My new favorite way to make greens!!

  478. Jennifer says:

    I think I love too many green vegetables–broccoli rabe, spinach, kale, cucumbers (though technically a fruit), lettuces of all kinds, arugula, string beans, zucchini, peas, asparagus… Is that enough?

  479. Stephanie says:

    Hmm, I think my favorite green vegetable would be spinach…green beans are a close second.

  480. CarylMay Herlyck says:

    My favorite green vegetable is Kale! Love it in soup and in smoothies and it is also a great garnish! I would use this chocolate silk for smoothies and desserts!! Thanks!


  481. Kerry says:

    I love all green vegetables! It’s so hard to choose a favorite. My top 3 right now would have to be spinach, kale, and brussels sprouts. This chocolate powder looks great! I would love to try it in smoothies, and maybe even mixed in my oatmeal!

  482. megan says:

    Broccoli Broccoli Broccoli or brussel sprouts!

  483. Tawnee says:

    My favorite green vegetable…can I only choose one?!

    I think that award has to go to broccoli. There’s just something soooo perfect about a plate of simple, garlic roasted broccoli with a little tempeh.

  484. Lauren says:

    Brussel sprouts – roasted!

  485. fallen says:

    I can’t decide between broccoli and cabbage. D:

  486. Jolene says:

    Are you kidding me? Pick one favorite green veggie. I don’t think it’s possible. Spinach, avocados, green beans, peas, broccoli, zucchini, cucumbers, I have to say green veggies are my favorite. I think I might try a chocolate green monster smoothie if I won.

  487. Abby says:

    My favorite green veggie… That’s a hard decision I haven’t thought about before. The first one that pops into my head is asparagus.
    I would use that giant can of Barleans to make the amazing smoothie you just posted, and a few variations of the same!
    Thank you so much for your recipes!!! You have made my switch to living a new lifestyle SO worth it!

  488. Janice says:

    I love spinach and broccoli, but I’ll take asparagus, Brussel sprouts or sugar snap peas anytime. I have 2 under 2 so I am very busy and I would use this in shakes on mornings I know I will be out and about all day and short of my green intake.

  489. Nicky says:

    Well, I’d use this product to make chocolate smoothies of all kinds and forms because my daughter absolutely loves chocolate and has been begging me for chocolate milk since we found out we needed to change our diet to be dairy – free… so she would just love this!

  490. Christa says:

    I LOVE to make some of your shakes as my post-run refuel snack to get my sugar levels back up (after a little gatorade of course!). This powder would be great to add to them since it has the extra nutrients.

    Keep the recipes coming Katie! I haven’t tried one that my tastebuds didn’t like. :)

  491. Megan says:

    My favorite vegetable is definitely spinach! Great in salads and smoothies :]

  492. Christina Lengyel says:

    My favorite green veggie? Asparagus! Which btw is an AWESOME substitute in guacamole, which I don’t like either. Thanks for the suggestion! :)

  493. Ashley says:

    Favorite green veggie: Definitely spinach. It’s so versatile!

  494. Sarah the official CCK drooler-we pick Rick says:

    The sign for way greater than is w>. I totally made that up. Not that you could tell :)

    Fave green? I guess I’ll have one when I’m 18. Right now, my mom still has to cover it up- or I won’t really eat it. I am gonna save a TON of money not buying kale for my kids to eat (when they CLEARLY don’t want to). AHEM, Mother.

  495. Erica says:

    It’s tough to pick my favorite green veggie- I love them all! But I’d have to say broccoli, especially steamed and topped with nutritional yeast!
