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. Deanne says:

    I would probably eat this shake for breakfast every morning! Or create my own healthy option too!

  2. Laura says:

    I could live off of brussel sprouts. Definitely my FAVORITE green vegetable.

  3. Korby says:

    I like all green veggies…but mostly spinach:o)

  4. Chelsea says:

    My favorite green veggie is probably broccoli, roasted in the oven. Spinach is a close second, I love it in green smoothies and salads!

  5. Melissa says:

    sugar snap peas, yum!

  6. Ivey says:

    So hard to choose- but I think since this veggie has been a favorite since I was four and chose it over ice cream, I’ll have to go with broccoli!

  7. Pamela says:

    Broccoli!! Or spinach…depends if cooking or munching. Would love to try this in smoothies or my in favorite chocolate dessert!

  8. Chase Young says:

    My favorite leafy green would have to be a tie between broccoli and kale. My husband is very allergic to dairy and so is my brother, so I love having a great source of recipes :)

  9. Margaret says:

    Spinach, no doubt! …and it’s about time they consider chocolate a vegetable 😉

  10. Dorothy says:

    My favorite has to be roasted brussels sprouts! I would love try to find a faster way to make a good green/chocolate smoothie.

  11. Jennie says:

    I just grilled asparagus for the first time last night and fell in LOVE with it…..I think I could eat it every day :) :) :)

  12. Amy says:

    I would use the powder in my favorite banana chocolate smoothies.
    As far as the green veggies go, too many to name, but I am on a brussel sprout kick. Roasted with olive oil, salt/pepper…they are soooo good! My kids love them, too. They are even good right out of the refrigerator.

  13. Rochelle says:

    I would love to try this product! I love viggies…my favorite green, probably, cucumbers!

  14. Brittany says:

    Favorite green vegetable?? Well, I do love me some romaine lettuce… because there are so many different things you can do with it/put it on/put it in/etc. Although zucchini is so great too in soups and other baking/cooking endeavors… I definitely would be using this mix, though, in the mornings or maybe even after workouts as a great reward for working so hard 😉

  15. Patricia says:

    Kale. Hands-down, kale.

  16. Kimberly says:

    I would use this powder to make my kiddos free smoothies they would love. They turn their noses up at my “green” green smoothies. :-) If I don’t win (sigh), where can I buy this?

  17. Jessy says:

    I have no problem consuming enough vegetables either (but I’m up for anything chocolate-related, so I would love to try this!), I love them! My favourite is definitely red bell pepper, though. We grow our own, so I eat plenty during the summer. :)

  18. Raney says:


  19. Ashley W says:

    Definitely broccoli! I would love to incorporate more green veggies in to my diet. I’ve been dealing with some health issues recently and the doctor has been urging me to move to more of a plant based diet. I think the powder would do the trick!

  20. Stephanie says:

    I love spinach! I use it with everything!

  21. Brinna says:

    I love asparagus! Oven roasted with olive oil and salt and pepper-So yummy! But broccoli is not far behind :) I really like these types of powders especially because it helps get some veggies into me before noon which usually wouldn’t happen.

  22. Kendra says:

    I love spinach! I like to put a few handfuls into my protein shakes in the morning and have been trying to get my husband to do the same for all the nutritional benefits but he just won’t So this powder would be a great way for him to get his greens too.

  23. Gretchen says:

    There are so many I love! Since I have to pick, I’ll say spinach, but I love broccoli, too.

  24. Marie Diane Mello says:

    This would be an excellent addition to breakfast (or dessert) pancakes. Just imagine what you could do with this and a few mini-chocolate chips!! Wowsa!!!!!!!!!!!!

  25. Sonyanijntje says:

    Favorite green vegetable? But there are so many!! But I think I’d go for the flat beans! They are great in Eastern as well as European dishes, and they still have a bite if you don’t overcook them. These beans just love my home-made peanut-sauce :P. (But I don’t think I’d put those beans in a green smoothie though…)

  26. Deborah says:

    Broccoli is my favorite – especially when roasted with bit of olive oil and garlic salt.

  27. Kim Thiessen says:

    Face green veggie…roasted brocolli or just plain broccoli.

  28. Samantha C. says:

    My favorite green veggie would have to be spinach. Its just so versatile!

  29. Heather@YSP says:

    This sounds great. Do you think it would be overkill if I added it to my spinach smoothies?

  30. Greta says:

    Right now my favorite green vegetable is broccoli, although I do love spinach, kale & zucchini as well.

  31. my favorite green vegetable (right now) is brussel sprouts. I don’t think they’d be a smart addition to a smoothie though …

  32. Caroline says:

    My favorite green vegetable is spinach…’s delicious in a salad, cooked and in my smoothies!

  33. Colleen Keith says:

    I love spinach! It’s my sneaky vegetable, because you can put it in anything to increase the nutritional content and never notice its there :) I would probably put it in this smoothie with some bananas and coconut butter :)

  34. Natasha says:

    Spinach is my favorite green vegetable. I would use this powder in my morning after-workout-before-school smoothie (which includes spinach). I bet it would turn some really yucky color, but it would taste great!

  35. Debbie says:

    This sounds delish. My fave green vegetable has to be green beans. Yummy and crunchy ad try go in anything. Side dish, pasta, salads and general munching! Just out of curiosity, is there anywhere in the UK that I could buy this product from?

  36. Katie B. says:

    If I had to pick one, I would probably choose kale. I LOVE making (and eating) kale chips!! But I do also like asparagus, broccoli, and spinach!

    I would probably try this powder in my protein shakes or even mixed with greek yogurt. :)

  37. Lisa says:

    My favorite green veggie is spinach!

  38. Emily says:

    My Favorite Green veggie…HmmmmNot sure I could pick just one…Broccolli,Kale,Zucchini,Spinach- I love them all!

  39. Jessica Drake says:

    My favorite veggie is an oven baked sweet potato! Yum!

  40. Jade C says:

    Hi Katie,
    My favourite green vegetable has to be broccoli – steamed, stir-fried, roasted.. I love this veggie!! Plus it’s pretty high in protein ..for a vegetable 😉
    Jade C.

  41. Jessica Drake says:

    Oh whoops, it was supposed to be green.. Broccoli!

  42. tiffany says:

    love pretty much all greens, but i’ll have to say kale and broccoli!

  43. Taylor says:

    Brussel sprouts. Hands down. I used to choose brussel sprouts over other options such as goldfish, granola bars, etc. when I was little. Apparently my mom had to have a stash in the freezer for backup purposes, just in case I went through the fresh ones in the fridge. I meant business. Needless to say, I still love them!

  44. Khadijah says:

    I think spinach is my favorite. I love it fresh in a giant salad or added to soups, stews, pastas, etc!

  45. Michelle says:

    My favorite cooked green vegetable is asparagus and raw vegetable is spinach. I would love to try this to make smoothies and other things. I also think it would be a way to sneak veggies into my kids!

  46. Holly F. says:

    Mmmmm, I love asparagus so much! Love, love, love it!

  47. Denelle says:

    Wondering if you can bake with it. Hmmm….

  48. Rebecca says:

    My favorite green veggie is kale! I’m loving kale chips lately! I would use the Barlean’s Chocolate Silk in my chocolate avocado pudding, smoothies and raw ice creams. Yum! I hope I win!

  49. Lisa says:

    I would say asparagus, should be sprouting in my garden soon! Can’t wait…until then the Barlean’s Green Chocolate Silk would be wonderful! :)

  50. Alissa says:

    Awesome! I think my favorite is zucchini~
    But I’ve been eating a ton of spinach lately! 😀

  51. Sarah says:

    What green vegetable don’t I like? The one I use most because it’s so versatile is probably spinach. I put it in green smoothies, add it to tofu scramble; use it in green salads… the list is endless. I LOVE CHOCOLATE so taking greens and chocolate together would be a daily usage in my kitchen. Either way, I can’t wait to try it. Thanks!

  52. Susan says:

    My favorite green veggie is asparagus. I’d use the powder to make that yummy smoothie!

  53. Faith says:

    Just one favorite green? I guess I’d say asparagus…or broccoli, or avocado, or green beans. I think I have a problem.

    I’d love to try this in my oatmeal, and banana yogurt smoothies :)

  54. Jialin Zhang says:

    I love spinach! spinach everything; in salads, smoothies, cooked, raw, any way!

  55. mc says:

    while i don’t realy like the taste, i’d say spinach is my favorite- you can add it to most anything (smoothies too!) and it doesn’t have much taste when combined… gotta love that :)

  56. Amy Rock says:

    Favorite green veggie would have to be green beans! Spinach is good too though! I would use this in smoothies/shakes and pancakes…

  57. Christy Kinder says:

    I would add the Greens powder to my breakfast smoothie to add extra nutrition!

  58. Tiffany C says:

    My favorite is broccoli

  59. Jessica B says:

    Hmmm.. I love peas and green peppers!

  60. Karen says:

    My favorite green veggie is spinach! And I can see I have a new favorite blog to follow! Chocolate! YUMMY!

  61. Nicole says:

    my favorite green is spinach…so versatile! I found your blog after doing some research on lactose free diets (my daughter and husband don’t do well with dairy)…love all your recipes and I can’t wait to try more of them!

  62. Laura says:

    Dear katie,
    I love the sound of this smoothie! Ive never before heard of this powder, but it sure sounds good. I think I would use it exactly as you did or maybe try making brownies with it. :)
    My favourite green vegetable probably is the cucumber, but I wouldnt use that in a smoothie. 😉


  63. Janice says:

    My favorite green vegetables are spinach and brocolli!! I eat them almost EVERYDAY. If I was to win this, i would definitely mix it with my banana oatmeal or my afternoon smoothie on a hot day!

  64. My favorite green vegetable is kale.

  65. Jennifer Bates says:

    I would love a Chocolate product that makes great smoothies. Better yet that it would hello me get some leafy greens in, I am always falling shot on the groupp.

  66. Ashley says:

    Spinach would be at the top of my list, mainly because of it’s versatility. I love it raw — in a salad or blended in a smoothie. It’s also great on a white pizza or with pasta and a cashew cream sauce.

  67. Robin says:

    My fave green veggie- spinach!! I add to to smoothies in the AM, or cook it down to add to an egg beater wrap with flatbread. I also really like broccoli. :) As for the powder, I drink smoothies a lot, and I am a chocoholic, so it’d be perfect for me.

  68. CJ says:

    Favorite green – arugula! And I’d use the powder for those emergency chocolate cravings… and probably as a post workout drink!

  69. Amanda says:

    I love asparagus! And kale is a new favorite.

    I do fall short on my daily vegetable intake. It’s not that i don’t like vegetables. I love them. I just tend to snack on fruit. Thanks for posting about the product. I’ve tried an organic greens powder once before but I was not a fan. I’ll have to give this one a try.

  70. I would love to make smoothies with this ‘veggie’ filled powder…I love fresh green peas the very best!

  71. auntiecarole says:

    Spinach and brussells sprouts. The mix would be used for smoothies—-yummy!

  72. Kristi says:

    I’m loving snap peas lately…they have sweet, satisfying crunch and remind me that spring is almost here! :)

  73. Sabine says:

    Spinach smoothies for me!

  74. Dannette says:

    I would LOVE to use this in Texas Sheet Cake. Am hosting mom’s day this year and that’s on the menu. I’ll have to “practice” between now and then. Great site, Katie. Love it.

    Broccoli, or maybe asparagus

    First Katie, I love your site! Your recipes are pinned to my healthy recipes Pinterest page and shared with many friends who are on the path to eating healthier! Thank you.

    I started down the path myself just over a year ago and lost 74 pounds. In the past 400 days I have eaten spinach almost every day! I go through 3 large containers per week! So my answer has to be spinach.

  80. Zuchhiniiiiiii! And spinach.
    I’d use the powder in smoothies,I think. Yum! 😀

  81. julie says:

    our protein shakes everyday could use a shake up like this!

  82. Susan Sanchez says:

    Hmmm…I would use Chocolate silk in almost everything that called for cocoa powder. As far as a fav green veggie? I don’t know. Haven’t met a green veggie I didn’t like. If I had to choose, I would go with kale

  83. Sam says:

    Avocados! There is nothing better

  84. Krysta says:

  96. Laura Baker says:

    I enjoy sprouts! Like bean sprouts and sunflower sprouts :-)
    At the beginning of this month I made the decision to have an animal free lifestyle. It has been a fun change (your recipes help SO MUCH since I’m a chocoholic) but I do think that I should incorporate something like Barlean’s into my diet since I’m often flying out of the house to get to school on time :-) Thanks Katie!

  97. Elizabeth says:

    Kale! :)

  98. Laurel C says:

    I’m a broccoli fiend!!! I love it!

  99. Rachel B says:

    Leafy greens are my favorites, but I can’t pick just one so I have to say collards, kale, chard, spinach (can’t wait to try your green ice cream) and the non-leafy broccoli. Runners-up are asparagus, cabbage, romaine lettuce, and green beans.

  100. Karena says:

    Favorite green vegetable would be sugar snap peas at the moment! Makes me think of summer. I’d use the powder similarly to how you did. We are new to no-dairy and I’m experimenting with all kinds of “new.” This would definitely be new!

  101. Julie P says:

    fav green veggie- cucumbers!

  102. Ebony says:

    I LOVE BROCCOLI! I love it in curries, stir-fries, stews, soups, pastas, raw (with hummos is spectacular), boiled, roasted, ANYWAY POSSIBLE! They’re just yum.
    And to the person who said cucumber, I’m sorry to inform you but cucumber’s a fruit. 😉

  103. Kiley says:

    I love broccoli rabe

  104. Betsy says:


  105. Verena says:

  106. Harley says:

    I love petits pois! They have a cute name and they’re delicious – what’s not to love there?

  107. Christine says:

    favorite green by far is broccoli! Can add to almost any dish and so many creative ways to jazz it up!

  108. Renee says:

    Can you dip vegetables is chocolate? If you can, then I don’t think there could be one that I don’t like. But seeing as how I’ve yet to try that, I’d have to say my favorite vegetable is broccoli.


  109. Heather says:

    my fave green veggie broccoli! especially roasted. and brussel sprouts. choosing one is hard!!

    i’d use this powder in my smoothies and/or overnight oats :-)

  110. Gi says:

    Oh, Katie, Katie…. I love the way you manage your blog! And your attitude toward product-sponsorship (does this word even exist? xD).
    My favorite vegetable is carrot… I can’t enter with a non-green vegetable, can I? But I don’t care, I can’t deny my true love : D

    (ps: about the newsletter: don’t know if it is a feature which was also I the previous ones, but in this one clicking on the photos doesn’t send you to the post, but to a large version of the photo itself! Just thought I should have told you :) )
    Oh and btw, great photos! I love the black background.

  111. Roxie says:

    My favorite green vegetable is… all of them! Asparagus is definitely at the top of the list. I started eating asparagus when I was five. We had just moved in to a new house and there was a little asparagus patch in the back yard. I was so intrigued by the little spears, and even more intrigued when my mom told me we could eat them. So began my love affair with gardening. And vegetables. )

  112. Leslie Wingate says:

    Asparagus for sure! The kids jump up and down when I bring it home like I just brought home candy. 😉

  113. kelly says:

    I LOVE collard greens :)

  145. Brooke says:

    Brussels Sprouts!

  146. Rachel says:

    Favorite green veggie…zucchini! How I’d use this chocolate silk greens powder? To trick my 4-yr-old into getting more veggies. She’ll eat them for me…but it helps to have tricks up my sleeves!

  147. Tess says:

    Fave green veggie would have to be sauteed fresh spinach with garlic and olive oil. Yum. I would use this powder in my homemade fruit smoothies when I have them for breakfast (about 1-2 times a week).

  148. Ashley says:

  155. Rachel S M says:

    Favorite green vegetable is broccoli or spinach…they are the best! They both go so well with pasta and a creamy sauce. And I love how you can add spinach to smoothies and not even taste it! Ha!

    If I won the chocolate powder, I might try to add it to my cottage cheese-mouse for breakfast, stir it in with chocolate cookies or brownies, or maybe even go for green hot chocolate! I love hot chocolate!

  156. Taylor says:

    Steamed broccoli is my favorite!!

  157. My favorite green vegetable is definitely kale. At least this week.

    I think it would be good with ANYTHING.

  160. KT says:

    My favorite green vegetables are spinach and kale. Do cilantro, basil and sage count? I love those too! If I won this I would make healthy treats for my little ones. They are not so excited about greens as I. Thanks for the entry opportunity!

  161. Anna Lynn says:

    Sugar Snap peas will always hold a special place in my heart!

    I’d love to experiment with this! Maybe mixed into oatmeal? Thanks for sharing the recipe! 😀

  162. Erin says:

    I would definitely make this smoothie! Haha. Kale is my favorite green veggie though.

  163. Cassandra says:

    Spinach is by far my favorite green! I eat it at least twice a day!

  164. Victoria says:

    I’m a huge fan of green shake mixes…I’ve tried a couple varieties but I haven’t found one I really liked yet. Of course whole foods are more nutritious than powders, but I’m definitely one of those people who ‘routinely fall short’ in the veggie department.

    That being said, my favorite veggie is baby spinach, because its probably one of the only vegetables versatile enough to be put into things like desserts (insert your awesome spinach ice cream recipe here!). I also sneak it into pizza dough, pretzel dough, dips, salads, shakes, soups, meatballs, pesto…you name it!

  165. Becky says:

    Winter favorite green: Swiss chard. Summer: sugar snap peas.

  166. Kate M. says:

    Katie!! I am writing in for both me and my roommate!! We LOVE your blog because we both are obsessed with chocolate :) And we are both runners, so we especially love that your desserts are so healthy! I think my favorite green vegetable is edamame, although I am as much a veggie girl as I am a chocolate girl! But we will have to try adding chocolate veggie powder in our long-run-recovery smoothies…nothing like chocolate after 12 miles!! Thanks for writing and KEEP COOKING! 😀

  167. Sarah says:

    Fresh spinach….ate it all the time when pregnant with both my girls and now they both love it too!!
    I would use the powder to make one minute chocolate cakes and in my oatmeal! Yummy!

  168. shay says:

    what if my favorite green veggie isn’t a veggie. My favorite greens are avocados and olives, but if I have to play it by the rules it’s a tie broccoli or green beans. Both a great raw or tossed with roasted garlic and olive oil. or just simply steamed or tossed into a stir fry.

    Excuse me I think I need to go eat something green…

  169. Laurie says:

    Growing up I hated Asparagus but now that I have improved my palate and have a taste for more healthy foods I LOVE Asparagus!!!

    Also I would love to try the Greens Chocolate Silk in lots of the smoothies and shakes I make and maybe even in cookies, cakes or brownies! I guess I would have to experiment….. but isn’t that half the fun anyways! :-)

  170. Katie says:

    I love spinach in green machine smoothies! I’d love to try the powder out with a variety of other fruits–bananas, raspberries, whatever! Looks delish

  171. mona says:

    If I were to win this product, I’d add it into a smoothie with an extra ripe banana, some spinach for some extra green power and almond milk. Yum!

  172. Erica says:

    I really enjoy spinach, pretty much all leafy greens except the really bitter Asian ones like tatsoi.
    Well since I have no problem getting in my greens,I would use it for my picky 2 year old son. If he even see’s a trace of green color in his food he makes a huge mess picking it out or he just won’t touch it all together. I would make him chocolate shakes and especially chocolate popsicles! I would even experiment with some kind of raw chocolate treats. What about using it in your chocolate rice crispies recipe?
    Needless to say it would be well used in my household. ( I also have a 4 year old boy but he munches lettuce like a rabbit!)

  173. DaniWM says:

    Favorite vegie…can that be possible???
    Today it’s kale…makes me feel super-human!

  174. Marilyn Perry says:

    I love raw spinach and green beans. Smoothies are my passion and Green Chocolate Silk sounds like a fabulous addition to my ingredients! :)

  175. Samantha says:

    i loove green veggies..but i think my favorites would have to be peas, or spinach leaves or broccoli! or maybe edemame if that counts!

  176. Katherine says:

    I would try making some brownies with this! Chocolately healthiness….yummmm.

  177. Gina G says:

    Swiss Chard or Broccoli! :)

  178. laura says:

    My favorite green is spinach…..however, my son won’t touch anything green – so I’d use this powder to get his greens in him leveraging his love of Chocolate!

  179. There are so many green veggies to love! I esp. like broccoli.

  180. Melanie Smith says:

    My favorite would have to be…broccoli! You can either steam it, saute it, or eat them raw. They’re good for recovering from bruises, too (which I get a lot of from doing karate!). I’m wondering, though, if it would be a good idea to try and make them into broccoli nuggets…. Would they burn too easily??

  181. Nicole says:

    BROCCOLI!!! I’m having broccoli soup for dinner as I write this post! =)

  182. Christina says:

    Yum! I’ve tried to find this infamous green powder! No luck, darn it. I would love to use it in making my boyfriend’s protein shakes- he uses ovaltine right now! And my favorite green veggie- asparagus for sure! Delish!

  183. Jen says:

    I love zucchini!

  184. Yvette Kane says:

    I would stir some into my cherry yogurt to make Cherry chocolate cordial flavor. Yum! And I would make your shake above. Love berry and chocolate. O.K. just love chocolate!

  185. Astrid says:

    My favourite green veggie is without a doubt cucumber, but I also love spinach!

  186. Rebecca Wright says:

    I have so many favorite green veggies! Broccoli or spinach tho I guess! If I won I’d make chocolate coffee, hot, iced or frozen! Hot diggity (or cold-diggity lol)

  187. Kim says:

    My favorite is probably green beans or raw fresh green peas or spinach. However I am still working on getting all of my greens in everyday so this would be a great addition to my diet

  188. Dana says:

    I would love to try the powder in this recipe! Looks so good! My favorite green veggie would have to be Kale or Brussels Sprouts as long as they aren’t too bitter love to roast them with olive oil and smoked sea salt.

  189. Nikita says:

    I eat copious amount of spinach… I also really love kale. Those are great for smoothies, but I’d have to say my favorite green veggie “as is” is sugar snap peas! In stir fries or hummus preferably though :)

  190. alejandra says:

    My favorite green vegetable is spinach! It has a mild taste and it is so healthy and delicious :)

  191. Laura Martin says:

    oooo – I would LOVE THIS!!! I’m seeing mint chocolate chip cookies!

  192. Betsy says:

    I love spinach! I eat the nutritional powerhouse almost daily! But these chocolaty grens would still be a great bost for those days when I really want a treat :-)

  193. Laura says:

    Favourite green veggie? Broccoli and kale all the way!! I go through at least 4 stalks a week and I need a dehydrator because I can’t afford to support my kale chip habit from grocery stores lol!

  194. Mandi says:

    I love asparagus! Yummmm. I would love to try this powder! :)

  195. purplegirl says:

    My favorite green vegetable? ALL OF THEM!!! I guess if I had to pick one it’d be kale. I’ve been known to devour entire bunches of kale in a single sitting. Like every day. My roommates hate me for taking up so much room in our fridge with all my greens. Hehehe.

  196. Chuck says:

    My favorite green is dinosaur kale.

  197. purplegirl says:

    Oh, I don’t know if this counts as a second entry or not, but it’s worth a try. I’d mi that lovely-looking powder into oatmeal and smoothies… And maybe add it to my giant piles of kale stir fry =P

  198. JM Langhammer says:

    I <3 Brussels sprouts! I also like making green smoothies & it sounds like this might be yummy for those too.

  199. Elizabeth says:

    I LOVE spinach!

  200. AnneW says:

    Favorite green veggie is lettuce! Kinda boring, but I go through at least 2 bags a week! It’s so versatile and I make a different salad every day!

  201. Alexandra says:

    Favourite green veggie= avocado! The butter of vegetables.

  202. Chelsea says:

    Mm, looks delicious as always! I’d say my favorite green vegetable is spinach, but that’s partly because it gives things (like the biscuits we had this morning) such a lovely color when it’s all blended up. 😉 Flavor/texture-wise, I adore zucchini.

  203. Mara says:

    My favorite green vegetable is KALE! I love it!! And I would love to try this powder, probably in smoothies, or brownies. Or any dessert, really.

  204. Chrissy says:

    Favorite veggie? Carrots or broccoli.

  205. Lou says:

    Favourite green veggie? Broccoli for sure :)

  206. I’m not overly fond of any green veggie which is why I need this! I’ve been working hard to incorporate spinach into my diet however!

  207. Kate says:

    It’s been a while since I made vegan pad thai, but there’s nothing better than a spicy, crunchy thai baby bok choy 😉

    I’d love to try the greens! I use Vega supplement powder right now (chocolate, obviously) and I’m curious about expanding my “powder-experience”, but being a student it’s hard to fork over $30-$40 for a tub of product I might not love!

    Thanks for the blog CCK, your desserts have been a saving grace!

  208. Cara says:

    I love asparagus and brocoli! Both taste so good steamed with lemon juice.

  209. Angela says:

    Wow, my favorite veggie is tough! I think I’d have to say Brussel sprouts! Or broccoli…or spinach…

  210. Daineen Drayton says:

    I love to make whole wheat crepes. What would be better to have chocolate crepes covered with honey or agave with fresh strawberries on the side. Yummy!

  211. Melanie says:

    Favorite green veggie: asparagus:)
    But sadly I rarely get to incorporate it or other delicious veggies into my diet (live in a nonhealthy food family, very frustrating for someone who loves to eat as healthy as she can..). I’d use the powder in my daily protein shake to give my diet that delicious green kick! And having it taste like chocolate? Even better! Its my one weakness, I have a small piece daily:)

  212. Justine says:

    kale <# <# <3

  213. Justine says:

    kale <3 <3 <3

  214. Julie says:

    Favorite green veggie…asparagus! I’d use it for smoothies with brown rice protein, some leafy greens, and unsweetened hemp milk!

  215. Vegyogini says:

    Kale is my fave! Thanks for the giveaway!

  216. Krista says:

    love spinach!!! especially as a salad :)

  217. Michele says:

    green peppers is my fav green veggie

  218. Sassy Stephanie says:


  219. My fave is broccoli. Looove it. But if I won this, it would be all for my picky preschooler. I’m lucky if I can get one serving of veggies in him a week!

  220. Billiejean says:

    My favorite green veggie is Spinach! I eat it just about every day!

  221. Rebecca says:

    Broccoli or Cucumbers! I could easily eat all of my vegetable servings for the day with just those two alone!

  222. Tricia says:

    Sounds Yummy!!!!

  223. Albizia says:

    I am divided between broccoli, spinach and nettle. Unfortunately, nettle is a little hard to find so I mostly eat spinach and broccoli. I think I am the only one interested in the bowl of steamed broccoli at a party 😀

  224. Cindy says:

    I like okra, brussels sprouts, and spinach. I would love to try these chocolate smoothies. I really love chocolate!

  225. Emily says:

    My favorite green vegetable is definitely kale (this week!)
    And I would use this for smoothies and maybe mixed into my oatmeal or pancakes?! Sounds delicious!

  226. Sarah says:

    Broccoli and spinach! I’m really hoping I win! I love love love the idea of chocolate greens!!!

  227. BroccoliHut says:

    Currently, I think it’s a tie between broccoli and kale!

  228. Liz says:

    I loveeeee green snap peas!!!! :) This Greens Chocolate powder would be good added to the banana bread pudding oatmeal recipe! YUmmmm!

  229. Ktp says:

    It has to be asparagus. It’s like to eat it with my fingers.

  230. Barb says:

    I am hesitant about getting greens from chocolate powder…my fav is spinich! But I’m willing to try anything that you endorse!

  231. Jennifer D. says:

    Favorite green veggie: baby spinach :)

  232. Sarah says:

    Green– broccoli or Avocado!!!!

    I would use this to make pancakes or healthy protein muffins :)

  233. Britt says:

    That’s like picking a favorite child! I pile on the green veggies with almost every meal. Kale + broccoli + spinach + arugula + brussells + green beans +snap peas…

  234. Crystin says:

    My Favorite Veggetable Is…BROCCOLI!!! I Love Broccoli, I Eat It Everyday! I Like It Steamed, Raw, With Dip, In Soup, In Salad, In Sandwiches, Roasted, On Pizza, Stir-Fried, With Cheese, And, Best Of All, With Other Veggies!!! Yum!!!

  235. Debbie says:

    I would love to use this in smoothies! Looks delicious!

  236. Mary Grace says:

    My favorite green vegetable is for sure asparagus! Can’t wait to make your guacamole :)

  237. Rachelle says:

    I just recently decided to try kale and am loving that so far! I would use Barlean’s product in smoothies, muffins, pancakes and probably even cookies and homemade ice cream! Something with a chocolate flavor like this has many possibilities!!

    You and Barlean’s are wonderful for this giveaway! Thank you!

  238. Dawning says:

    Swiss Chard is my favorite greenie. I’d love to freeze this smoothie into ice pop molds and make summertime treats!

  239. Cara D says:

    Spinach – you can add it to anything!

  240. Nicole A. says:

    Yellow bell peppers!

  241. Andrea says:

    Brocolli or brussel sprouts! I love spinach too. Green’s my fave color :)

  242. Clove says:

    Edamame of course! (wait- edamame are vegetables, right??)

  243. Kelly says:

    I love spinach!!!

  244. Dominique says:

    If I had this chocolate green powder, I’d use it as a supplement in my daily protein shakes in addition to getting my whole greens through raw or steamed veggies… as an athlete and vegetarian I want to be as nutritionally well-rounded as possible! (Plus it has chocolate which enourages me to use it! <3) :)

  245. Christy H says:

    Fav. green veggie: spinach with apple cider vinegar

  246. donna says:

    I do not like green veggies. That is a really good reason as to why I need to win this.

  247. Sherry says:

    YUM!!!! I would use that in my smoothies and anything else it will go in.
    I love Kale, spinach, cucumbers… I don’t really know my fav……Thanks

  248. oooh I think I’ll have to go with asparagus as number one… but I am a greens lover! (I had some tasty fresh kale in my breakfast smoothie just this morning!)

  249. Mary Sue says:

    Spinach is my favorite green veggie. Frozen chopped, because it’s there when I want it to be and don’t have to throw it away because I didn’t use it in time.

  250. emily says:

    I LOVE spinach and add it to everything. Chocolate pb banana spinach smoothies after a run are amazing! I would use this powder to create a thicker, even more filling smoothie or use in for a refreshing afternoon snack.

  251. Kate says:

    I love spinach! I know most people are put of by it, but I love it so much that I even request it for my birthday meal. Just sauteed in a little olive oil, fresh garlic, and sea salt :)

  252. nicole says:

    I love green bell peppers and kale!

  253. Angie says:

    My favorite green veggie would have to be…hmm, any kind of greens (kale, beet greens) sauteed with garlic and butter. I think this powder would be fabulous in “sneaky brownies”.

  254. Stephanie says:

    Cucumbers!!! well, green on the outside, does that count?

  255. Brandi says:

    Hmm.. favorite green veggie, I think that would be sugar snap peas. I can eat like, 2 cups of them at one sitting. I also love spinach. I’m eating some with dinner right now! I would use it for a healthy way to indulge myself.

  256. Mary holland says:

    My fav green veggie is KALE

  257. Hollie Cardenas says:

    My favorite green vegetable is broccoli – but with great websites lik this one, have learned to love spinach too, and it’s quickly becoming my 2nd favorite green. :)

  258. donna says:

    I don’t like any green veggies. That is a really good reason as to why I really need to win this.

  259. Natasha says:

    Spinach is pretty bad ass too :)

  260. Kali says:

    Spinach makes EVERYTHING better. Like a green smoothie. Or a tofu-bacon sandwich. Or a pasta salad. Or a nomlette.:D

  261. sarah deremer says:

    Spinach. Just like Popeye 😉

  262. Sarah says:

    Favorite leafy green: spinach
    Favorite non-leafy veg: asparagus and broccoli

    That stuff sounds sooo yummy!

  263. Lauren says:

    Spinach by far!! Can we say smoothies galore!! This stuff would be awesome!!

  264. Ana says:

    Spinach for sure!! This powder sounds delicious, I love thick smoothies and would love to try this one!

  265. Claire says:

    Peas! I love them, they’re so sweet and cute. Plus having frozen ones makes life so much easier. I’d try using this in my tofu pudding- I think it would be lovely & give it an extra nutritional hit!

  266. chrystal says:

    My favorite green is… Im going with a Kale. It is so beautiful! I love all greens.. I would use the mix mid-day for that needed boost of energy and burst of vitamins and minerals.. 😀 Greens Rock!

  267. Rachel says:

    I like them all, but I really like avocados.

  268. jessica h says:

    Spinach is my favorite green veggie esp in Smoothies! I would use the powder in my smoothie!

  269. Dawn says:

    I’d use it in a smoothie to replace the brand I currently use. I drink one before and after my cardio workout! Sounds yummy! :)

  270. Emma says:

    I love pretty much ALL green vegetables– it’s hard to choose a favorite! I guess my all-time #1 pick would be pickling cucumbers straight off my vines, 5 feet from my front door, but only if they aren’t all bitter at the ends.

  271. Aisatsana says:

    Cabbage! …or maybe broccoli, oh, and brussel sprouts are awesome…and so are snap peas, and green beans, and spinach, and green peppers, and cucumbers…
    Heh..I just like green veggies!!!

  272. Stephanie H. says:

    I can’t decide between spinach and broccoli, so I am choosing both! I would put this in my smoothies or have my husband use it at work. When he is at work (aka away from my control….wahahahaha) he doesn’t always get the nutrition he needs and this would be fast and easy for him to use. Thank you for all of the inspiration and creative ideas!

  273. kerri says:


    And I might come close to using the powder in EVERYTHING ;). [Or maybe not quite!] I would definitely make the above shake! :]

  274. Beth Newby says:

    I would LOVE to try this product! As soon as I started reading your description my thought was “I gotta Google this to find out how much it is!” So convince me with a free trial, they’ll be glad you did! 😉 BTW, I LOVE your blog…I found it while on vacation and can’t wait to get home to try most of your recipes. I’m a “chocolate girl” too…who happened to lose 45 lbs last year, yes, keeping chocolate in my menu! Last brag…went from pushing a size 14 to comfortably wearing a size 4, at that’s at age 55. I’m smaller than I was in high school. Okay, I have to rest my arm, I’ve pulled it patting myself on the back. Keep up the great posts Katie!

  275. Anonymous says:

    Fresh green beans or roasted broccoli make my mouth water!

    Thanks for this site – it has SAVED me when it comes to trying to find healthy (and healthIER) desserts! I bring your things to everything I go to, and never tell people what’s in them till after they’ve tried it. People are always so surprised that chickpeas and dates could taste SO GOOD!

  276. Kristyn says:

    WOOPS! The above comment is from me!!

  277. TJ says:

    Cabbage is my favorite–so versatile.

  278. Vanessa says:

    My favorite green veggie is cuccomber and I would try many variations of smoothies with this powder 😀 !

  279. Gina Cellino says:

    Asparagus! Tossed with a little olive oil and salt and pepper , then roasted.

  280. LisaEesa says:

    Favorite leafy green BY FAR is KALE! Love, love, LOVE IT!!!

  281. Carol Bischoff says:

    Green Beans!

  282. Jenny says:

    Kale is my favorite this week. I told my daughters our new family motto is “EAT KALE” but the youngest refuses to get on board (she’ll eat it, just won’t say it). I would use the powder in our smoothies. We sometimes use cocoa, but the added nutrients would be great!

  283. Tricia says:

    ALL OF THEM!!! Veggies rock, especially green ones!!

  284. HC says:

    I love kale! Maybe I can make this chocolate silk greens into smoothie along with spinach or swiss chard and sprinkle baked kale on top of it! The main reason I love your blog is I’m always learning something creative and new from you like this Chocolate Silk greens. Never heard of it but sounds great! Thanks for this info!

  285. Wendy Y says:

    Favourite green vegetable? broccoli, kale (for kale chips!), gai lan, bok choy (well, that one has some green on it!)… :)

  286. Joshua says:

    kale is one of my favorite vegetables, ive never used this product before would be great in a post ride vegie,fruit, protein smoothy ^_^.

  287. Aubrey says:

    Favorite green veggie has to be asparagus. YUUUUMMM.
    and i would totally make chocolate banana peanut butter smoothies for after a run.

  288. Amy Lauren says:

    My favorite green veggie is definitely spinach. I would use this powder in smoothies but maybe recipes as well.

  289. Stephanie says:

    Kale…. Definitely kale. I love drink green smoothies and I know Barlean’s powder would make them extra de-lish 😉

  290. Dana says:

    Hmmmmmm? Do I have to choose? Well, I suppose it would be a tie between asparagus and spinach. They usually end up together when I cook them but I will also accept them individually. However, I must say that these chocolate greens sound like they could be a new favorite. 😉

  291. Tina A says:

    My favorite green vegetable is asparagus!

  292. Susan says:

    I made a great smoothie this morning with almond milk, frozen peaches and fresh spinach, so today my favorite green is: SPINACH;)

  293. Leslie Boyce says:

    Favorite green veggie? SPINACH! I can throw it in everything. I would love some Barlean’s Chocolate Silk because we are trying to get to a healthier way of eating in our family and my 11 year old WILL eat chocolate!

  294. Nan says:

    Favorite green veggie would probably be asparagus or cabbage or brussel sprouts….well, you get the idea. :-)

  295. Ami says:

    I can’t decide! Spinach/ Rainbow chard for smoothies, kale and broccoli for stirfry… I’ll eat any vegetable, green or not haha :)

  296. Yolanda says:

    I love romaine lettuce, spring mix, poblano peppers,jalapenos, green beans, squash, spinach, cucumbers, its taken alot of effort to learn to eat green. I would like to try smoothies as meal replacements, so it would be great if I win.

  297. abbey says:

    I can’t decide between spinach, kale, and sugar snap peas!

  298. Lucy says:

    My favourite green is spinach! YUM!

  299. Carrie Beth says:

    My favorite vegetable is definitely spinach- so delicious!

  300. Candy M. says:

    Oh gosh, that’s hard. :) I adore asparagus, broccoli, spinach, etc…Right now I’m really craving Brussels sprouts!

  301. Sue says:

    Hmmm…spinach, kale, broccoli would be my 3 top contenders!

    Love your site, so glad I found it. The mint chocolate chip smoothie is SO great, I hope St. Patricks Day can be celebrated every day!!!

  302. xandra says:

    My favorite veggies are green bellpepper raw and carrots steamed.

  303. Liz says:

    I think I’d mix it with some avocado for a pudding or frozen banana for some “soft-serve.”
    Keep the recipes coming! XOXO

  304. Favorite green vegetable = broccoli, hands down.

    I would use the powder in my morning smoothies, I’m always looking for a way to jazz things up each day!

  305. Ruby says:

    Green beans!

  306. Jessica Phillips says:

    Oh my goodness.. This looks so perfect! I love all vegetables but I am a full time student/vegan so find it’s sometimes difficult to get in all of my leafy greens!! I would put this powder in literally everything…I’d love to try it in your Raw chocolate fudge pie, or maybe even the raw brownies so I could snack on them anywhere! I’d certainly never get bored experimenting with all of your amazing recipes 😀

  307. Deanna says:

    Yes, yes there is a math symbol for way greater than. I think it’s two of the arrows, but I’m not sure off the top of my head. I know it exists, because sometimes my math teachers use it.

    I’m not sure what my favorite green would be. I guess maybe spinach? Or a good salad spring mix of greens.

  308. Kaylea Weyrich says:

    I love green beans! I would use this to make this smoothie! I’m all about disguising healthy food!

  309. Amanda says:

    Favorite green vegetable is broccoli! Love your stuff and can’t wait to try making some :)

  310. Kathryn Shaffer says:

    Grilled Asparagus!
    And I’d use the powder in smoothies for my 4 little ones. Yum.

  311. Casey B. says:

    I love asparagus! And chocolate. Who doesn’t like chocolate?

  312. Carolina says:

    Um I don’t have one–yet, but I like spinach and kale is pretty awesome. I need some magic veggie vitamins. C:

  313. Cathy says:

    zuchini! This looks so good! Thanks!

  314. Mary says:

    Ooh…I’d love to make a giant chocolate chocolate chip cookie (the ones with garbanzo beans and oats) with this. Yummy!

  315. Kelly Jones says:

    My favorite green vegetable at the moment is Kale. Just can’t eat enough kale salad. If I win the Barleans Chocolate Silk I think I would use it to make my chocolate chip protein cookies.

  316. Anna says:


  317. Jenna W. says:

    I love broccoli :) Only when cooked though!

  318. Annmaie says:

    I say spinach!! The ultimate super veggie!! Started training at the gym but this time with a trainer. She presses the importance of eating plenty and getting enough protein. Only thing is that I won’t eat the typical body builder type of proteins like beef and chicken. Unless its free range, grass fed, etc. Being stationed in Germany products like this are hard to come by and require a wait for the next farmer’s market and a hefty euro check. I also do not tolerate whey or soy proteins therefore have to make up my own protein shake concoction at home to take with me. I throw handfuls of greens in all my hemp protein shakes! This can be time consuming and this product seems like it would be right up my alley as far as personal goals with nutrition. Other trainers (including mine) doubt my dietary lifestyle and think that what I am trying to accomplish in the gym will never yield results on a fruits, veggies and proteins from mostly plant and nut sources diet. I’d like to prove them VERY wrong!! Cheers!

  319. Emi says:

    Favorite green vegetable? Can I say ‘all’? Well, nearly.
    I love celery, and as spring approaches I am really craving asparagus. Ooh, and Brussels sprouts…
    Can I put this in Everything? It sounds like a great I-just-got-a-new-painful-wire-in-my-braces dessert. 😀

  320. Cara Maxwell says:

    I want to win these!!!

  321. Jen C. says:

    Rainbow chard!

  322. Heidi says:

    Favorite green veggie? So many to choose from… green beans and cucumbers right out of the garden… YUM! As for the powder, I would sneak it into my kids’ smoothies (it might be nice not to have them be completely green every now and then!), chocolate pancakes, chocolate zucchini bread, all kinds of things! A few extra veggies never hurt anyone!!! :)

  323. Taylor Rowell says:

    I would have to say that Zucchini is my favourite green veggie!

  324. Maureen says:

    I have been looking at sites for powdered or capsulized greens… Have not seen this particular product, but if it’s chocolate – I’m in!

  325. Jenn says:

    Spinach is the best. For a while I was eating it 3 times a day

  326. Ariel says:

    My favorite green vegetables would most likely be broccoli, spinach, or green beans. I also don’t know what I’d use this powder in. Maybe for smoothies, oatmeal, or homemade ice cream :)

  327. cindy says:

    I love kale! And I would probably use the powder to supplement my toddler’s veg intake

  328. Mila says:

    My favourite green vegetable? too many 😀 probably cucumber and broccoli, hard to decide^^

    And I’d use it in Protein-Pancakes in the morning, for this recipe, for milkshakes in generale, maybe i’d try to incorporate them in your fudge-recipes to make them more “vegetable-like” ^^

  329. JOY says:

    Mmmmm my favorite green?
    Spinach or lettuce or edamame or lima beans or or

  330. Mila says:

    Noooo, sorry, wrong mail-adress, i forgot the dot, my keybord is kinda crazy today :)

  331. Ellen says:

    My favorite green vegetable is broccoli! Then probably spinach for green smoothies :)

  332. Stace says:

    Asparagus! Or brocoli! Steamed, or in salad, or… Asparagus! And I might try these in the chocolate on no bake cookies cause I can get enough chocolate (and since my batch turned out very greasy hahah) and heck, to quote that old lady on that hot sauce commercial ” I(‘d) put this $&!# on (in?) everything!”

  333. Sandy B says:

    My favorite green is spinach; it’s so versatile and good for you. And I’d use that mix for smoothies ’cause I’m a morning green smoothie girl! Thanks.

  334. Jan says:

    I too love chocolate and a way to add it with veggies…WOW. I can always use more veggies.

  335. Mila says:

    Nooo, wrong mail-adress, there’s a missing dot! Sorry, my keybord is kinda crazy today :)

  336. Allison says:

    I absolutely love green beans, especially when I’ve picked them fresh out of the garden. YUM! And as for the powder, I’d probably use it to make frozen “ice cream” pops for my kiddos! They are the ones that aren’t getting enough veggies!

  337. Leanne says:

    Broccoli. I never had to acquire a taste for this – I remember being 5-6 years old and asking for it for dinner. I even won my husband over to the broccoli love early on in our marriage!!!

  338. Kathryn says:

    My favorite green veggie is baby spinach.

  339. Mallory says:

    I would use the green powder exactly how you did! Perhaps I would use ice instead of strawberries and add peanut butter? And I may blend some spinach in there just to get even MORE!!! I guess spinach is my favorite green as well… I put it in everything i can! :)

  340. Lynn says:

    My favorite green veggie is Brocciflower…not certain of the spelling but it’s a combo of broccoli and cauliflower…it looks like a bright St Patty’s day” green tastes a bit sweet and a bit nutty…very good roasted…bet it would be tasty in some of your chocolate treats so I would make a smoothy with the powder and see!

    New to your site and love your recipes and creativity…please keep it coming!

  341. Jillian A. Mills says:

    I have to go with baby spinach bc it is so versatile. I use it in my morning smoothies. I would love to try this stuff. I am in a region that is VERY hard to find healthy alternatives, so any chance I get to put my hands on something I’ve not tried, I do it! 😀

  342. Laine says:

    Favorite green veggie?? Eek! It’s a three-way tie between broccoli, brussel sprouts, and kale. Arugula is pretty high up there as well!

  343. Morgan says:

    Favorite green veg: definitely kale. If I won the powder I’d probably stir it into oatmeal or blend it seperately from my usual smoothie and make a layered parfait-style breakfast with some crunchy bran buds and cacao on top!

  344. Holly says:

    broccoli! :)

  345. Amanda C says:

    Green veggie favorite would definitely be zuchinni! I am pretty sure I spelled it wrong because it looks that way. I do love it

  346. Karina says:

    My favorite green vegetable is cabbage. I really love a creamy coleslaw with a crunchy topping like nuts or seeds.

  347. Marjorie says:

    My fave green vegetable is spinach! I like it cooked or fresh but NEVER canned!

  348. Eric says:

    That first batch of garden fresh green beans, barely steamed … ahhh a thing of wonder!

  349. Lori Smith says:

    Hi Katie,
    My favorite green veggie is probably zucchini right now, and I would use that Barlean’s powder to try to get more nutrition in my 12 year old son who is eating me out of house and home right now.
    Thanks for another delicious recipe to try!

  350. Paige says:

    My favorite veggie is butternut/acorn/buttercup squash! Squash addict 4lyfe. I would use the powder to make hot chocolate or even in other baking :)

  351. Kathryn says:

    Spinach & avocados

  352. sara jane says:

    I love brussel sprouts. And edamame!

  353. Julie R says:

    My favorite green vegetable, broccoli or spinach. Love both!!

  354. Shannon says:

    My fav green veggie would have to be brussell sprouts!! I love them roasted!! I would use the powder in my green spinach smoothie!!

  355. Tonya says:

    I love zucchini! And I love making smoothies with powders! Banana, chocolate and peanut butter is an amazing mix!!

  356. Joey says:

    Just found this site and am excited to start trying some of the recipes. I was also excited to find someone else who eats chocolate every day.

    My favorite green veggie is broccoli. Not sure how I’d use this powder, the first I’ve ever heard of it, but if it’s as yummy as you say I might use in on everything! I also love smoothies, so that would be a great option – mixed with blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, etc.

  357. I would love to try this chocolate green powder! Love to make smoothies!

  358. I drink a protein shake almost every day, so this would likely be what I’d use this for!

  359. Veronica says:

    Asparagus or broccoli… Either go with anything and everything!

  360. Rachelle says:

    My favorite green is definitely asparagus!

  361. Cathy says:

    I don’t really love green veggies. So, this would be great to add t my diet.

  362. Tiffany says:

    My fav green veggie is roasted brussel sprouts, yum! My kids, however, are not big veggie fans, so I would use this to sneak some in! 😉

  363. Mackenzie says:

    i love my greens in smoothie form so this would be perfect for me!

  364. Courtney says:

    I LOVE spinach, brussel sprouts, and asparagus!

  365. Jennifer says:

    favorite green: asparagus.

  366. Jane says:

    I spent two years of college dorm life living on spinach (and tomatoes) for lunch and dinner. I’m still not sick of it! :)

  367. Kim says:

    Would love to try this

  368. Jan J. says:

    I am obsessed with bok choy! Love spinach and Napa cabbage as well. I would love to try this in my smoothies! Where I actually put spinach for green smoothies but sometimes don’t have fresh spinach.

  369. sl says:

    My favorite is a spinach salad! yummy!!

  370. RunnrJo says:

    I am completely in love with brussel sprouts!

  371. Ariel says:

    My favorite green veggie would definitely have to be Spinach!!! 😀

  372. Heather Smith says:

    I like greens, but don’t eat enough of them. I am training myself to eat healthy(which is why I am following your website!) I would love to try this…I think even *I* would love it. :-) Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  373. Jessie says:

    Spinach is my favorite! It’s so good for you and so easy to cook and add to so many foods. I’ve recently discovered how easily you can hide spinach in a fruit smoothie too! I recently went vegetarian, and spinach has been a lifesaver.

  374. tracy says:

    I love aspargus!

  375. Laura says:


  376. heather says:

    This product sounds great, I’d love to try it! As a busy mother of 3 I don’t always eat as healthy as I’d like and try to fit in some healthy smoothies, this sound perfect for that! My favorite green vegetable is broccoli!

  377. Tracy says:

    We LOVE smoothies at our place and I am finally going to try spinach in them. I would LOVE this powder it would be great for my daughter running out the door to kindergarden.
    And Broccoli will always be my favorite veggie… with garlic, with butter, steamed.. with seasoning salt…. yummmmmm

    thanks for doing a giveaway Katie! I am a new follower to your blog and loving the recipes.

  378. Ashley says:

    Favorite green is either zuchinni or spinach, I could eat either one any way, in any amount, raw or cooked. So good!
    If I won the chocolate powder I would make healthier green smoothies for my picky 2 and 1 year old’s without the bit too obvious green spinach bits floating amongst the ovaltine, lol.

  379. Sarah says:

    My favorite green veggie is broccoli (and asparagus). I think I know what I’m going to have for dinner tonight, now.

  380. Dorothy Bryant says:

    favorite green veggie? Asparagus

  381. Mari says:

    I like kale.

  382. Jules says:

    fav green veggie is spinach!!! I LOVE SPINACH! :)

  383. Kaylee says:

    This looks great! I am terrible at picking just one favorite (brocolli, asparagus, spinach…), but I really like kale. I tired to make that my nickname once, but it never stuck. Oh well, it’s still a tasty veggie! :)

  384. Patti says:

    Hi, my favorite green vege keeps changes–but always comes back to spinach. It’s in my a.m. Breakfast smoothie, lunch salad / sandwich, lasagna, soup, Mac & cheese, etc. I’d use the Barleans powder in a smoothie, brownie / muffin / cup cake, etc that I make — ice cream, too.

  385. Elyse says:

    Favorite green veggie: either broccoli or brussel sprouts. Who am I kidding, I would eat anything green. Maybe use the powder in place of cocoa for a no bake cookie recipe? Turn it into something healthy!

  386. Sara says:

    Oh also if you want to do WAY greater than, we use >> a lot in science.
    Like zucchini > velveeta, but chocolate >> zucchini. :)

  387. Channing says:

    Oooh.. my favorite green vegetable is the artichoke! It never lets me down.

  388. KellyB says:

    Favortie green currently are cheezy kale chips. make them in the dehydrator and they turn out perfect every time.

  389. Carla says:

    Fav green.. right now Kale.. but really this can change daily! LOL

  390. Joy says:

    favorite green veggie…hmm….i would have to say spinach! spinach salad is so yummy

  391. Cassie says:

    My favorite green veggie is broccoli steamed to crisp tender in a small amount of water and olive oil with one clove garlic crushed. Takes about 4 minutes to cook and is yummy! (Though not as yummy as chocolate!)
    I always add lots of green veggies to my smoothies and this would be way easier than cleaning and cutting all those veggies in the morning.

  392. Andy says:

    Hi Katie!

    I am a die hard kale lover. Right now I can’t get enough of crispy coconut kale, mmmm so amazing! I would use this chocolate greens powder for maybe a chocolate pudding and definitely for a variety of smoothies

  393. Hope says:


  394. Vanessa says:

    Dealing with adrenal fatigue issues I try to get in as much greens and whole foods as possible. With that said I believe this product would be put to good use helping with energy levels and digestion.

  395. kristen says:

    wow, a lot of comments!

    I make a smoothie for my lunch every day. I looooove spinach, and that is one ingredient that i put in my smoothie. It would be nice to switch it up a bit. I usually put strawberries or mixed berries, protien powder and a bit of almond extract.
    the chocolate would be a super add to my lunch!!!!!!

    sincerely, Kristen :)

  396. Tracy says:

    Favorite green … Kale!! And I would use it in my daily green (kale) smoothie!! Yum!!

  397. Melissa says:

    I just love iceberg lettuce! I know it is old-fashioned, but with a great dressing, it is a meal for me! Of course I love green veghies of any sort!
    I’d love to try the chocolate green, love to try anything new,

  398. Kate Curren says:

    I have a new found love for kale, however fall short on eating right so would love to try this to help kept me aligned nutritionally

  399. Ursula Carter says:

    Favorite green veggies are asparagus, spinach and broccoli. Wondering how these chocolate greens would taste in oatmeal?

  400. Abby says:

    favorite green vegetable, hmmmm…..definitely asparagus :)

  401. Sonja Christensen says:

    My favourite green vegetable is asparagus so I start getting excited around this time of year because Ontario asparagus is coming soon!

  402. Jodi says:

    Hmm my favorite green veggie…def roasted broccoli!!! And I’d love to try this powder out in some smoothies! :)

  403. Alicen Adams says:

    My favorite green veggie is probably kale. I have it almost every morning in my smoothie. I love it in soup. I love it dried up. I just love it. Plain and simple!

  404. robyn says:

    so hard to pick just one…loving cucumbers these days. and spinach!

  405. Andrew Ramirez says:

    Kale! Love baking them with some sea salt and drizzled olive oil for a crispy chip alternative!

  406. Amanda says:

    Does edamame count? If not, probably fresh garden cucumbers.

    I would love to give this product a try with my 2 year old triplets who will do well with some spinach smoothies at times, but could a bigger boost of greens.

  407. Laquita says:

    I have to say broccoli….there are so many ways to use it, it’s nearly impossible to tire of!

  408. Oh, yum, yum, yum! I would love to win this so I could make this terrific looking smoothie… dreaming of the chocolate bliss right now, lol! Anyway, my favorite green veggie is PEAS! I love peas because they taste good alone, with butter, in a casserole, etc!

  409. Glori says:

    I love Barleans products. This is VERY intriguing. I must try it.

    My favorite green veggie is Brussel Sprouts stir-fried in coconut oil and EVOO until lightly browned and then squeeze lime juice over the top – Delicious!!!!!! Even if you think you hate Brussel Sprouts, you will love this.

  410. Kianni says:

    My favorite greeen vegetable (or at least the one I eat the most) is spinach! and yeah, I’m pretty sure I’d use that “Chocolate Silk” for a smoothie! (probably a mocha one actually)

  411. Tina says:

    mmmm that sounds great. haha. my favorite green veggie is definitely cucumbers!!

  412. Nance says:

    I think my favorite green is a toss up between spinach and baby kale. What would I do with this product?…the sky is the limit!

  413. shea says:

    Asparagus or broccoli

  414. keira says:

    mmmm! its a tie between spinach and brussel sprouts. im one of those weird people who likes brussel sprouts!

  415. Becky Bauer says:

    Love all green vegetables and would use this because of recent colon surgery and having to drink a lot of smoothies and protein drinks to heal colon. Seriously fruits an vegetables are not my friend right now so this would help a lot.

  416. Rachel says:

    Hail to the curly kale!

  417. Natalie Waggoner says:

    Fresh steamed broccoli is my fave. I would definately use this powder in my morning smoothie! Sounds delish.

  418. Cathy says:

    My two favorite green vegetables are fresh spinach and kale that I juice every morning. So, if I would win the Barleans Green Chocolate Silk, I could change up my smoothie to something really decadent with chocolate in the morning. Yum!

  419. Katie H. says:

    My favorite green vegetable is by far asparagus! I didn’t try it until a few years ago and now question why I didn’t try it sooner.

  420. Kayla says:

    Lots of favorite leafy greens but I have to go with…KALE! :) If I won Barleans Greens Chocolate Silk, I would, of course, enjoy the chocolately goodness myself but more importantly, use it to sneak more leafy nutrition into my husband and daughter’s diets!! My previously eat-anything-and-everything-healthy little girl has turned into a picky toddler. I ‘hide’ veggies in her food and keep offering them, but would love to try another tool to get her some more of that leafy goodness! :)

  421. Julie says:

    I don’t like to choose only one, but today my mood would favor spinach.

  422. Katie says:

    Hmm, favorite green? Everytime I tell what my favorite something is, unless it the answer can be Dark Chocolate, then I always think of a better favorite later. So, hmm I like spinach, Romaine, green onion, is Basil a green vegetable? (I know, it’s an herb) I like green beverages, sometimes, broccoli, asparagus, brussel sprouts, fresh cucumbers, zucchini…
    Today, I say my favorite is Zucchini — baked in chocolate zucchini cake, using Barleans Greens Chocolate Silk powder. :-)

  423. Kate says:

    I would use this powder for cookies, cakes, and protein shakes for after I work out..I want my body to have something to nosh right after it’s worked hard. I would also be making this amazing smoothie!

  424. Lisa says:

    My favorite green veggie is green beans! But I also like broccoli, spinach, and sweet peas. :)

  425. Christine says:

    My favorite green is spinach… in salad, in smoothies, stuffed in other foods, or any other way, I love it!

  426. Cassidy Wooldridge says:

    It may be bland on its own, but I absolutely love eating celery! The green vegetable is a staple in my diet for its crunchiness.

  427. Leslie Paquette says:

    Hmm, If I have to pick just one, my favorite veggie is definitely brussels sprouts. I would love to try this smoothie recipe :)

  428. Awesome!! I also get almost too many veggies per day, and my favorite is zucchni for sure! I am also drooling over a chocolate zucchini bread I pinned recently and this powder could really take the bread over the top I imagine!

  429. jennifer says:

    My favorite vegetable is asparagus.

  430. carolyn s says:

    Wow, this is a great idea! I love green veggies. Broccoli, mustard, spinach, brussels sprouts, just about all of them, except iceberg lettuce. Thanks so much for sharing .

  431. Heather R says:

    I’m not sure I could pick a favorite since there’s really only two vegetables that I don’t like (asparagus and artichokes) but I guess if I had to pick a green one it would be broccoli (or spinach, or cabbage, or brussel sprouts or … :] )

  432. A says:

    Kale has got to be one of THE most versatile greens and even ingredients in the world! not only does it taste great but you can do a million things with it – chips, dips, sauces, sides, stir fry’s, even deserts! I <3 kale and even more – it's soooo good for you! Definitely one of my all time fav greens and foods!

  433. Tiffany says:


  434. Nikki says:

    My favorite green veggie is brussel sprouts. I hated them when I was little because my mom only made the frozen ones. Then when I got older I discovered fresh! Yum-ooo on the grill!!!

  435. kat says:

    kale is my favorite!

  436. Janille says:

    I definitely don’t eat enough greens each day, so this would be quite helpful! I’d say my favorite green veggie is a crunchy green pepper!

  437. Shannon says:

    My favorite green veggie is spinach which I always add to my smoothies, but adding chocolate to them would make them even better!

  438. Kate says:

    I LOVE baby spinach leaves! I add them in smoothies, eat them in a salad, or top a burger with them :)
    I would *LOVE* to try this chocolate smoothie, and hope to win!

  439. Hannah says:

    Wow, just LOOK at all your fans… their comments go for miles! You are helping hundreds, thousands, of people (girls especially) satisfy their cheeky sugar side without the side effects. THANK YOU!!!

    I would love to win the powder because I’m sure you’d post to Australia, where as a lot of the companies I have tried to buy powdered ‘greens’ from won’t. :( I would use it in my husband’s breakfast smoothie daily, to get him healthier (I sneak all sorts of things into his smoothies, but nothing so great as this!).

  440. Andrea says:

    My favorite is Brussel Sprouts

  441. SC says:

    I love kale <3 both cooked or raw! It's delicious, plus it feels good to be eating something that healthy.

  442. Heather LaGuire says:

    I would use the Barlean’s in a morning banana shake or add it to a bowl of oatmeal…maybe even try adding a little to my yogurt. I’d also love to try adding some to one of your cookie-dough dips or sneak it in my husband’s cookies??

  443. Crystal says:

    Kale! I love making kale chips!!! Ps. I found your blog on pinterest but I have been spreading the word to everyone!! People at work are making your recipes now too! Thanks!

  444. Sandra says:

    Love green beans!

  445. Katie says:

    My favorite green veggie is Edamame. I eat it almost everyday.

  446. Rissa says:

    My favorite green would definitely be a toss up between asparagus and spinach. My kids (2 and 4) love veggies, but they love smoothies even more, esp. when they’re chocolate!! :)

  447. Sarah says:

    Spinach and asparagus <3333

    i like to do crazy things with my veggies since they're so versatile, so in the morning i cut up some asparagus and somethings broccoli and mix it with some cinnamon, truvia, and sugar free vanilla syrup. sooooo goood on the side with some eggs or a bagel!!

  448. Jen R says:

    Broccoli is the best green veggie, hands down!

  449. Anne says:

    I would love to try this!!!

  450. jeanette says:

    I would use this powder a lot. I have tried and tried but I just do NOT like leafy greens. wish i did. as a result, neither do my kids :(

  451. Emily says:

    I would use it in my oatmeal!

  452. Arlenys says:

    I love sugar snap peas, broccoli, and spinach!! And I’d use the powder for my morning shakes 😉

  453. Aileen says:

    My favorite green vegetable is a tie between spinach and kale. I love how spinach can pretty much be blended w/ anything and the slight bitterness of kale.

  454. Nancy Gordon says:

    My favorite vegetable is kale. I just made kale chips for an appetizer tonight, but I love prepared any way and it’s also great in soups! I would love to try this great chocolate product.

  455. Brooke says:

    I love peas!

  456. Lorraine says:

    My favorite green vegetable is broccoli.

  457. helen says:

    My favs are asparagus and Brussels sprouts. I wish I knew what to with kale.

  458. Melanie says:

    Green beans! I could eat them for lunch and dinner everyday and still keep coming back for more :)

  459. Roni Yager says:

    Favorite veggies are tomatoes…unfortunately I’m allergic to them :(((
    (that’s an extra big frowny face!!)

  460. Kit-Kat says:

    I love any greens, but Swiss Chard marinated in balsamic vinegar is my favorite green…. but I really do love almost every veggie there is out there!
    I would use this product for shakes, and making my own pudding. YUM!

  461. Brooke says:

    Spinach! Raw and cooked, it’s easy to add to lots of meals!

  462. Roni Yager says:

    Oh GREEN veggie! haha! garden fresh zucchini, of course!

  463. Leanna C says:

    I actually do a pretty good job of keeping greens in my diet, but every now and then I’ll take some sort of vegetable “supplement,” like a low-sodium v8 or odwalla or naked juice. My favorite greens are probably asparagus, brussel sprouts, or romaine (in salsa… yum!). And I just LOVE blending spinach into everything!

    If I won the powder I would most definitely make hot chocolate/chocolate soup, especially as the weather isn’t quite heating up yet in California… well, it comes and goes. And I’m always cold, unfortunately. I LOVE knowing that I can enjoy something sweet while still keeping my body healthy! (RE: my dedication to your blog!)

  464. emily jo says:

    I LOVEE broccoli! as well as spinach and asparagus =)

  465. Mollie says:

    Seriously……you want me to pick just ONE?!?!?!?!? It depends on the day, today is probably asparagus, tomorrow could be broccoli, or brussel sprouts, or jalepenos, or spinach, or… get the idea!!

  466. Adrienne says:

    Peas! I love peas. I never get enough veggies so this would be great.

  467. Melissa says:

    Brussel sprouts!

  468. Missy says:

    I’d mix it into my oatmeal.

  469. AmyMcD says:

    I would LOVE to try the Barlean’s Greens powder! As a 35-yr old breast cancer survivor, I am always looking for more ways to get cancer-fighting antioxidants and extra veggies! I have become completely obsessed with your faux Shamrock Shakes, so I would mix the Chocolate silk powder into my Shamrock Shake to make Chocolate mint shakes!! And then feed them to my 2 yr old and 6 yr old!! YUM!!!!

  470. I would love to make this in a smoothie! I love fruits but don’t always get enough veggies daily.

  471. Lisa says:

    Fresh baby spinach…and it would be wonderful in a smoothie with this chocolate green mix!

  472. Jessie says:

    Your smoothie looks so amazing, I think I’d have to use the powder to make one myself!

  473. J says:

    Zucchini all the way!

  474. Nikki says:

    Broccoli and spinach – it’s a tie!

    I would start by making this smoothie..

  475. Elliev says:

    I love, love peas. Everyone thinks I’m yucky for loving peas!

    Also, thank you for all your splendid recipes. I was addicted to the chickpea choc chip batter last month… Geeze.

  476. ellie-v says:

    I’m not sure if my comment went through the first time, i clicked “submit” ONE time and it said “oops! looks lik you’ve already said that”.

    But i’ll repeat, I love peas~

  477. Renae says:

    I can only choose ONE green vegetable? I cannot choose between broccoli, brussel sprouts, and asparagus. That would be cruel.

  478. kara says:

    i love brocolli :) microwave them, steam them…

  479. Justin says:

    My favorite green veggie would probably be collard greens. As a southern girl that’s such a natural for me. I would REALLY love to win this because I’m trying to change my eating habits and adopt a healthier lifestyle. I’m super enthusiastic about smoothies at the moment because they can be so yummy and versatile, and truthfully for me, they seem like about the best way to get the extra protein and calcium that I’m focused on adding more of in my diet.

  480. Lori says:

    My favorite greens are kale for smoothies! I love them in pineapple juice but I think chocolate kale smoothies would be fab!!

  481. Lacy says:

    I Love just about any green veggie!!!!!!!!

  482. Alicia says:

    Peas are my favorite green veggie, but I like spinach in smoothies. I would make a smoothie with this and put raspberries in it because I have some frozen in my freezer yet from my raspberry patch. I hope I win.

    Celery! You can put so many things on it or you can eat it plain. So versatile!

    If I won, I would try this chocolate smoothie. I love strawberries and chocolate. Sounds like a perfect pair!

    Dang, I love spinach. There’s no way to go wrong with the stuff, is there?

  493. Tabatha says:

    When I was pregnant, my husband would ask me what I wanted for dinner and I would reply, “anything, so long as it has a side of broccoli!”. I must have needed all that folate:-)
    Post gestation and i am still loving the broccoli.
