Chocolate Smoothie Recipes
Chocolate Coffee Smoothie: Add half a teaspoon of instant coffee before blending.
Black Forest: Instead of yogurt, substitute six ounces of frozen cherries. If not buying the fruit already pitted, be sure to remove the pits prior to blending.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie: Blend in two tablespoons of peanut butter, powdered peanut butter, or almond butter for a rich and decadent chocolate shake.
Nutella Smoothie: Follow the steps for the chocolate peanut butter shake above, substituting the nut butter for store bought or Homemade Nutella.
Chocolate Strawberry: Instead of vanilla yogurt, use strawberry yogurt and add one or two frozen chopped strawberries. Or make a blueberry version with blueberry yogurt and a small handful of frozen blueberries.
Chocolate Banana Smoothie: For an added sugar free smoothie, use a ripe frozen banana as your sweetener of choice. This will also yield a thicker smoothie.
Tropical Smoothie: Use canned coconut milk as your milk of choice and six ounces frozen mango or banana instead of the yogurt.
Chocolate Green Smoothie: Add a handful of fresh spinach or kale. Or blend in up to a fourth cup of frozen spinach or greens of choice.

Chocolate protein smoothie recipe
Even when prepared without protein powder, this healthy chocolate shake packs in up to twelve grams of protein.
To make an even higher protein morning meal or healthy snack, feel free to add a scoop of your favorite chocolate, vanilla, birthday cake, or other flavor protein powder.
Depending on the brand and type of protein powder you use, the protein smoothie can have over twenty five grams of protein!
Adding a spoonful of peanut butter or a sprinkle of nutritious chia seeds or flax seeds will also up the fiber and protein in the recipe.
Use leftover protein powder for Protein Brownies
Healthy chocolate smoothie ingredients
You will need unsweetened cocoa powder or chocolate protein powder, milk of choice, vanilla yogurt, your favorite sweetener, a pinch of salt, and optional peanut butter, cashew butter, tahini, or almond butter.
The recipe does not call for adding any ice cubes, and I recommend not using any. Ice dilutes the richness of the chocolate flavor.
Measurements for the sweetener will depend on whether you are using sweetened or unsweetened yogurt and milk, as well as your own personal tastebuds and what type of sweetener you choose.
For a recipe made with unsweetened milk and yogurt, I like to add around two or three teaspoons of pure maple syrup or unrefined sugar. You can use pretty much any all purpose sweetener here, so go with your favorite.
Chocolate breakfast shake
Turn the recipe into a filling breakfast option by adding one to two tablespoons of quick or old fashioned rolled oats.
Blend the oats until their texture resembles that of flour. Then add all remaining ingredients, and blend again. Aside from the added fiber and protein, adding oatmeal is also a great way to make the smoothie even thicker.
How to make a chocolate smoothie
Combine the yogurt, milk, cocoa powder or protein powder, salt, optional nut butter, and sweetener in a blender. Blend until thick and smooth.
Pour the drink into a tall glass. Or use a mason jar if you wish to be fancy.
You can also turn it into a chocolate smoothie bowl. Top the bowl with granola, mini chocolate chips, shredded coconut, raspberries, two ingredient Chocolate Truffles, or sliced bananas and homemade Coconut Whipped Cream.
Chocolate Milkshake Trick: If you have a high speed blender like a Vitamix and want to make an even thicker smoothie, pour the milk into an ice cube tray and freeze it ahead of time. Once frozen, pop out the frozen milk ice cubes and blend them along with the other ingredients to make a super thick chocolate smoothie.
Vegan and keto options
To make a vegan chocolate smoothie, use nondairy yogurt and plant based milk. I like almond milk, oat milk, soy milk, or canned coconut milk.
For a keto chocolate smoothie with no sugar, use either sugar free vanilla yogurt or plain Greek yogurt. If using an unsweetened yogurt, add a fourth teaspoon of pure vanilla extract and adjust the sweetener to suit your tastes. Keto sugar replacements include allulose, xylitol, or stevia.
In addition to being vegan and low carb, the healthy recipe can also be soy free, gluten free, dairy free, egg free, nut free, low fat, and low calorie.
Chocolate milkshake or smoothie?
The difference between a milkshake and a smoothie is that ice cream is the main ingredient in milkshakes, while smoothies blend ingredients like fruit, yogurt, milk, and sometimes greens, avocado, and vegetables or fruit juice.
Smoothies are usually much healthier than milkshakes due to their traditional lower sugar and fat content and the addition of more nutritious ingredients.
A milkshake is more often served as a dessert, whereas a fruit smoothie with yogurt can also make a great healthy breakfast or snack.
- 6 oz vanilla yogurt (dairy free or sugar free if desired)
- 1/2 cup milk of choice
- 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder or chocolate protein powder
- pinch salt
- 2 tbsp peanut butter (optional)
- sweetener of choice to taste
- Add everything to a blender, and blend until smooth. Serve, and enjoy. If you have a high speed blender (like a Vitamix) and want to make an even thicker smoothie, freeze the milk in an ice cube tray ahead of time. Once frozen, blend with the other ingredients to make a super thick chocolate smoothie.View Nutrition Facts

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…
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…
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 😉
I love spinach! But also asparagus, green peppers, kale… it’s hard to pick just one.
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 🙂
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.
I eat an obscene amount of spinach. I’m going to turn green soon.

kale kale kale
Robin (RsIslandCrafts) says
I love leafy spinach. It’s great in a salad, soup, or smoothies.
I love spinach!
I absolutely LOVE asparagus!!!
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:-)
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!
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! 😉
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!
i <3 spinach
Love asparagus!! When it’s in season it is aaaahmazing ! 🙂
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!
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 😉
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!
Broccoli is my fave! I would use this powder in the chocolate banana hemp milk smoothies I give my kids everyday.
Ooooh! It’s hard to pick my favourite green veggie! Lately it has been kale, but that changes all the time.
Smoothies smoothies smoooothies!!!!
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!
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!
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 🙂
“way greater than” would be “>>” in maths-chat!
(and my favourite green vegetable is broccoli!)
amy marantino 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.
I would love to use this daily as my breakfast smoothie. My favorite green veggie is lima beans!
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 😉
I want to make this smoothie!!!!
I love so many green veggies! Kale, spinach. broccoli, avocado— yum! I would love to win this giveaway!
Spinach! Or roasted Brussels sprouts! I just bought a vitamix so I would smoothie it up with the powder!
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 🙂
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 🙂
Another spinach fan here.
I NEVER get enough leafy greens! My favorite vegetable is DEFINITELY brussel sprouts. AH!
Lisa K @ NutriNosh says
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” 🙂
I LOVE Brussels sprouts.
I would add it to spinach smoothies!:)
Favourite green veggie would have to be either spinach or cabbage 🙂
Leah @ Chocolate and Wild Air says
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!
Spinich!!! would use this in my breakfast smoothie every morning!!
BROCCOLI <3 <3
Holly - InspirationBeauty says
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!
Stephanie @ Legally Blinde says
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!
Alex Maxx says
My favorite green veggie is kale (:
I love all veggies! Spinach is my most-used, though.
I <3 spinach!
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!
I love kale! Thanks for the chance to win 🙂
I’d love to try this as an ingredient for a pie filling, to be honest. It sounds tempting!
Kale!!!!!!!!! I can’t get enough of the stuff! If I won this powder I would use it to make green smoothies 🙂
MaryBeth Lonergan says
Love brussels sprouts lately. And also edamame. and spinach.
I looove asparagus! But i’ve been having trouble getting veggies in lately so this seems like a really good product 🙂
Amy B. says
Spinach will be my favorite. Forever and always!
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.
Love spinach and green cabbage (even though it doesn’t quite count as a leafy green, it is still delicious)!
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.
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 🙂
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
Justeen @ Blissful Baking says
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!
My favorite greens are broccoli and spinach. I would probably use this powder with my daily smoothies.
I love peas because I was never allowed to have them growing up (mom was allergic) so now they are like my forbidden veggie 🙂
Broccoli, or raw spinach! Or asparagus, edamame, kale… Too many faves!
I’d definitely add the powder to a green smoothie. Veggie overkill 🙂
Oh! I just had an idea. Maybe I would try putting it in our homemade soy ice cream.
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 🙂
I love kale! It’s delicious, versatile, and adds bulk to pretty much any meal so my stomach doesn’t rumble in an hour 🙂
Kale, AVOCADOS, spinnach, and beet tops. I LOOOOVE beet tops!
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!
Jordan D. says
I love all green veggies! But asparagus is probably my favorite.
I would use it to mix with peanut butter of course! 🙂
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???
Chocolate-Covered Katie says
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!
And I’m a smoothie junkie, so I’m sure the powder would end up in the blender 😀
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.
zucchini .smoothie for certain
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
Tatsoi is one of my current green favorites. Yummy!
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?) =)
Broccoli, of course!
I love broccoli!!
Kale is a favorite of mine & my 1 & 3 year old! We love to juice it, make kale chips, & eat raw in salads! 🙂
I would love to have the opportunity to try this recipe as it was created! My favorite green is yummy broccoli!
My fav green is spinach!
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!!
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!
I love Kale and Swiss Chard! Chocolate and Greens? I am so there!
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. 🙂
My favorite green vegetable is kale. yum.
I love zucchini and pickles 🙂
and for your math symbol problem, just use “>>”
This would be great in smoothies!
Julie cleeland says
Because I have a beautiful artichoke waiting to be enjoyed- I’m going with artichoke:) thank you for this opportunity!
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!
Alicia L says
Favourite green veggie? Broccoli! And kale and spinach! Yum. I love my vegetables.
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.
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!
My favorite is kale. We love it in smoothies in our house. We love your website,!!
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!!
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!
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!
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.
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!!
roasted brussel sprouts, spinach and kale. yummy.
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!)
I would love to try the greens powder!
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.
Shelby Heffernan says
My favorite green vegetable would have to be roasted green beans!!! I would use the powder to make delicious smoothies!!
I LOVE KALE!!!!
Erica Cooper says
fave green veggie- brussel sprouts! YUM!
Fav green veggie=asparagus!!
Asparagus – never get tired of it! Love it roasted!
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. 🙂
I would use this to make smoothies for my kids. It’s hard sneaking any veggies in anything, but this might do the trick!
My favorite green vegetable are Brussels sprouts. 🙂
I would totally use it for smoothies in my Vitamix! My fav green vegetable is broccoli for sure
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!
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)
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!
Wow,my mouth is watering already. Thank you,I´ll try these ideas soon.
I love kale!
Martha S. says
If its a green veggie, I love it! This would be great in my smoothies!
I’d make hot chocolate with it! Yum!
Broccoli and/or asparagus — love them both!
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!
broccoli. it’s perfect. (although kale is a very close second)
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!
Cindy C. says
I’d add the powder to my morning smoothie. I LOVE chocolate!!!
Kale….because I LOVE smoothies with it. This powder would be a great addition to our shakes!
I looove brussel sprouts! And I’d probably use this powder for a shake like you did, or to make banana softserve!
The only green vegetable I like is green beans but I do LOVE chocolate so this might be just the thing I need 🙂
Brussels sprouts, no doubt!
Broccoli, hands down! And the only way I can get my kids to eat it is in a smoothie.
Favorite green vegetable is green beans….would add powder to smoothies, raw brownies, chili.
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.
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.
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.
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 😉
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!!!
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.
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. 🙂
Broccoli and spinach for the win.
If I would I would enjoy at least 1 chocolate delirious drink a day.
broccoli and/or spinach! tied for first place 🙂
Bok Choy 🙂
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.
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!
Just one favorite??
Hmmm I suppose it would be zucchini. Followed closely by spinach, green beans, and broccoli!
Amy S says
I love broccoli!
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!
brussels sprouts, hands down!
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!!
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!
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!
Hope Whitfield says
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!
Kale…made into kale chips by just crisping it in the oven!!!
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.
My favorite green vegetable is definitely broccoli! It’s delicious!
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!
jessica light says
Kale is my favorite green
Juju at Tales of Whimsy.com says
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.
My favorite green veggie is broccoli!
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.
I would use this to try out your fabulous recipe! Sounds yummy…
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!
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.
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.
It’s hard for me to pick just one green veggie, but for the sake of spring fever, I’ll go with aspargus!
Broccoli. I often dream of just a giant plate of broccoli the size of a table for me to chow down on.
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!
Zucchini is my favorite, followed closely by asparagus, brussels sprouts, spinach, artichokes…
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 😉
Nicole K. says
I absolutely adore spinach! I go through about one package a week…
Mary kay says
Favorite greens is spinach. I drink a smoothy every morning and Love chocolate so this would be great.
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!
Amy S says
Spinach!!! I usually have it in my own morning smoothies. I’d be glad to substitute Barlean’s though 🙂
Alex Reisinger says
Broccoli, especially roasted with a bit of olive oil. Then a squeeze of lemon on it at the end. Perfection!
MaryJane Higgins says
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.
My favorite green veggie is spinach!
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!
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!
I tried chard just a few days ago and really liked it. It was good in my green smoothie anyway 😉
Spinach is so yummy! I’d use it for paleo breakfast smoothies w/ coconut milk, almond butter and banana!
Hm…. I would say it’s cucumber… I love them especially fresh from the garden!
My favorite vegetable is definitely broccoli, I love it!
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.
I love roasted beets…amazing!
oops, favorite GREEN veggie!
I’d have to go with broccoli in that case. Or maybe spinach. Artichokes? Ack! Too many to choose from!
Couldn’t possibly pick a favorite green veggie. Love ’em all! (Ever tried fiddleheads?)
I’d make chocolate banana smoothies every morning.
Mmmmm! My fave veggie is the cucumber. 🙂
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.
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!
Favorite green veggie: spinach!
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.
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! 😉
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!
Cristina M. says
Kale, bok choy or any kind of lettuce!
Favorite green veggie: spinach
I’d use this in my daily protein smoothie 🙂
As so many others stated, I would have to say spinach is my favorite green….especially in smoothies or salads!
Amber Shea @Almost Vegan says
Even though it’s not usually green in color (but it can be!), I count cauliflower as my fave “green” veggie!
My favorite veggie is roasted broccoli! I also love spinach, I would put this product in my green smoothies! YUM!
Katherine D. says
If I won, I would make the most delicious green monster smoothies with this powder 🙂
katherinedibello (at) gmail (Dot) com
Definitely kale! I eat way too much of it.
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!!
Amanda Taylor says
I would probably make a shake with it… I’ve been shake crazy lately!
My favorite green veggie is probably broccoli! Although I do love swiss chard, kale, spinach… 😀
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!
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! 🙂
I love Brussels Sprouts!
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.
My favourite vegetable is a toss-up between asparagus, eggplant, and okra!
Erin Rose says
MY favorite Green veggies are artichokes! they are soooo good dipped in goddess dressing!
I’d definitely use it in smoothies since it’s starting to warm up outside!!!!
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!
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:
A bunch of pitted, frozen cherries
Greek style yogurt (sheep’s milk, but you could do silken tofu, I would think)
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.
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.
Katie Henderson says
Lima beans! Beans are..kind of a vegetable, right? If not….okra!
Favorite green? It’s a toss up at the moment between green beans (very lightly cooked) and broccoli.
Lisa @bitesforbabies says
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!!
I looooooooooooooooveeeee spinach!
My favorite green veggie (and veggie in general for that matter) is green bell peppers!! I love the crunch!!
Favorite green vegetable has to be cucumbers, but if it needs to be leafy….arugula!
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!
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!
Right now, like the rest of the world, I seem to be all about kale. Poor broccoli, I’m neglecting you so.
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.
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!
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
Spinach! It’s so versatile.
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!
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.
I would have to say spinach. It tastes great and it is so versatile! :]
My favorite green veggie has to be broccoli. Or spinach. If it’s green and a vegetable I will most likely eat it, really.
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!
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!
Ooh, favorite green veggie…definitely broccoli!
Laurie B says
My favorite green veggie is kale. I’d use this powder to try your recipe!
Peas, green beans, asparagus, kale….the list is endless and the possibilities endless…
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!
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!
That looks fantastic! My favorite green vegetable is grilled asparagus, and I would love to use the chocolate silk in my oatmeal 🙂
I love asparagus….. Especially with garlic sauce.
My favorite green veggie would have to be fresh spinach! Yay! I would really like this powder so I can try this smoothie. 🙂
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!
I will have to go with spinach and broccoli.
My favorite green veggie is either spinach or broccoli.
I would use the powder in my morning smoothie. Nothing beats chocolate!
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.
I love the nero di toscana kale! And asparagus. And basically every vegetable I’ve ever tasted.
I love spinach!
My favorite green vegetable is broccoli. I never get tired of it. Mmmmm……..broccoli….. 🙂
Greens…collards, mustards, and turnip greens.
Probably a tie between broccoli and spinach!
Absolutely LOVE broccoli. But not raw. Must be cooked with a bit of a bite still left.
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!!
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 🙂
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!
Beth H says
My favorite changes with the season-right now I’m going with spinach!
Melinda @cookingalamel says
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. 😉
favorite green vegetable: broccoli!
Jennifer Heether says
my absolute favorite green is kale! I have never tried the chocolate greens, now im so intrigued!!!
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.
Brussels Sprouts are definitely my favorite green vegetable. I could eat roasted brussels sprouts anyday!
i love broccoli!
My favorite green veggie is definitely roasted brussel sprouts! And I would use the powder for smoothies of course 🙂
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.
I think it’s quite obvious how I would use this if I won…(see above!) 🙂 Thanks for the giveaway!
Hi Katie! My favorite green vegetable is hands down BROCOLLI! I love it in garlic olive oil and so does my 7 yr old!!
Zucchini! There are so many ways to use this green in both savory & sweet dishes 🙂
oh my goodness, I’ve never heard of this stuff. It looks amazing!! I love broccoli and kale!! Oh and brussel sprouts too!!
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.
Jovana @ Fit and healthy Jovana says
Broccoli! Zucchini! Kale! Brussel sprouts! I love them all 🙂
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!
Brussel Sprouts, Spinach, Cabbage I love them, but not as much as I love chocolate
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!!!
i like roasted broccoli best (with garlic and pharm), but i like romaine lettuce, cucumbers, and avocado lots too
Maria Carolina Rueda says
How about this one:
Maria Carolina Rueda says
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.
Chocolate-Covered Katie 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 🙁
My fave green veggie is celery and I would use the silk to make my morning shakes 🙂
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!
I would use it to make chocolate almond butter!! 🙂
My all time favorite has got to be spinach, but I’ve been on a huge kale kick lately!
I love spinach! and Id use the powder to make that shake 🙂
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!
Chocolate-Covered Katie says
Aww Jenny, thank you!!
I LOVE cucumbers! They are perfectly refreshing with feta cheese or hummus 🙂
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~
Wthout a doubt, green beans!!!
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.
My favorite veggie is spinach 🙂
My favorite green veggie is raw spincah for sure 🙂
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!!
My fave is probably spinach because it’s neutral tasting so you can throw it in pretty much anything. 🙂
love green smoothies…wish I had more time to make them in the morning. I would definitely experiment with this powder in smoothies!
Rebecca Gillespie says
Currently my favorite green veggie is brussels sprouts! Roasted in the oven they are soooo yummy!
Bobbi Philson says
Love kale chips.
Jaime Jones says
Broccoli!! With spinach as a close second.
Natalie M. says
I love, love asparagus….especially bacon-wrapped, roasted asparagus!!!
Fave green veggie? Definitely broccoli!
sarah g says
I would mix them in oatmeal and have chocolate oatmeal!
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!
I love broccoli with cheese sauce…..as 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!
Ashley @ My Food 'N' Fitness Diaries says
my favorite green vegetable is a toss up between spinach, brussels sprouts, and broccoli!
My favorite green vegetable is brussels sprouts.
Stephanie Davis says
My favorite green veggie would have to be broccoli. Or spinach. Or asparagus. Can I only leave one?
91% Chocolate Lover says
My favorite green vegetable is zucchini, because of zucchini bread. But kale is awesome too.
My favorite green vegetable is celery!!
My favorite green veggies are Brussels, spinach, and asparagus! I’d use the powder for smoothies and to flavor delicious oatmeal! Great alternative 🙂
My favorite green vegetable is Zucchini because you can eat it raw or bake breads, cakes, muffins, etc. with it!
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….
Heather Johnson says
I love arugula and spinach. If I win I will portion use it in my coffee 🙂
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.
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.
I looove asparagus, zucchini, and artichokes. 🙂
Definitely kale with peanut sauce. Can’t get enough!
Cucumbers hands down!
Treats With a Twist says
My favorite green veggie, and my favorite food, is the artichoke!
My favorite green veggie is CHARD! i cant get enough of it! my garden just explodes with chard every summer.
Accidentally hit enter before I typed in my email address! 🙂 And yes, I like cucumbers.
Favorite green veggie would be Broccoli!!
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.
Shelby (everydayvegangirl) says
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 http://everydayvegangirl.blogspot.com/2012/02/week-of-oatmeal-7-fantastic-creations.html
that I could use this powder in since I don’t have any other veggies in this meal.
kale, definitely kale.
Michelle C. says
My favorite green veggie is definitely spinach
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!
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?! 😀
Favorite green vegetable is Kale, hands down
My favourite green vegetable is DEFINITELY kale. mmmmm!
Mandy Cheshire says
Hmmm… I eat the most of spinach and kale… But I have been craving baby bok choy!
Love all your yummy recipes! I would use the powder with peanut butter for the center of homemade Reese’s cups! 🙂
I <3 broccoli!
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 . . .
favorite green vegetable?? how to pick just one!! i would have to say asparagus..it 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
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
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.
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! 🙂
my favorite green veggie is cucumber! 🙂 Or green bell peppers-it’s hard to choose just one!
I used to hate it, but since I discovered kale chips: I love me some kale.
I love all greens – in green smoothies. Yum!
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.
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!
I love almost all green veggies, but I’d have to say spinach is my favorite!
sounds perfect for smoothies for the kids too!! love getting in some more greens into their diets!
my favorite green- Kale, in smoothies!
My favorite green vegetable is a no brainer….BROCCOLI!!!!
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.
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…
Favorite green veggie is for sure asparagus! Love it when grilled, sauteed, or even steamed with a splash of favorite dressing!
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.
Kale is my favorite green veggie!!
Kale! I will give the chocolate silk a try in my daily green smoothie. Thanks for letting us know about this product.
arugula! i’ve gone through 3 1/2 bags in one week. granted i used one bag to make arugula chips.
I like a lot of green veggies, but if I had to pick a favorite, it would be asparagus!!!!
I love baby spinach ! Thanks for the giveaway.
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!
LJ Briar says
Favourite green vegetable definitely spinach! Adaptable, goes great in everything, and my baby rats love it too.
arugula or cilantro, mmmm. i’ve eaten 3 1/2 bags in one week! granted one bag was used for arugula chips.
Katrina @ Warm Vanilla Sugar says
I love a thick smoothie so this is lovely for me! My favorite green vegetable is broccoli.
Would love to win so I could try this….looks amazing.
Math symbol for way greater than is >> the more > the more it is greater than…
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.
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!
My favorite green veggie is broccoli & lettuce. Love lettuce, any kind. Oh and sugar peas too.
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!
Asparagus! Chocolate tofu mousse for sure 🙂
That’s tough to answer…but ill say currently organic spianch in my green smoothie!
I love spinach!
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?
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!
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!
Katie @ Peace Love & Oats says
My favorite green vegetable is brussel sprouts! Sooooo good, especially roasted!
Asparagus! Or brussel sprouts. Or green beans. Ahh I don’t know I love them all!
LORI HURD says
I would say asparagus is my favorite green veg. I would probally use this product in my daily smoothies
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!!)
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!!
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!
It’s gotta be asparagus. Or maybe spinach… Or brussel sprouts!! There are too many good green veggies!! I can’t pick just one 🙂
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. 🙂
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 ;))
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.
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 🙂
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.
Another Steph who votes for spinach. But that’s a really tough choice!
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…
My favorite green vegetables are peas! So sweet and delicious–like nature’s summer candy. But I also LOVE bokchoy which is mostly green.
[email protected] Kitchen says
Spinach and kale are my go to greens, but chocolate would be a huge improvement
fave green veggie is def broccoli!!!!
I LOVE spinach and broccoli. I would use it to make frozen mocha!
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!
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
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 🙂
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!
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..
I love spinach! And green bell peppers!
I can’t decide between kale and avocado! Really I love all the green vegetables except Lima beans and green peas!! Lol
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!
My favorite green vegetable is zucchini! 🙂
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
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
Spinach is my favorite green vegetable!
My favorite green veggie is probably spinach and I would use this product in my smoothies all the time!!
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!
It’s hard to choose one but I guess spinach.
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!)
Definitely… Brocoli ! Cooked with onions. Yum 🙂
Bri Williams says
Kale for the win!!!
Michelle C. says
Spinach or asparagus!
Allayne Clegg says
asparagus…and I’d use the powder in smoothies!
Baby spinach. Broccoli. Roasted green beans. No, wait! My mom’s kale soup! Mustard greens. Baby lettuces. Do I have to pick just one??
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!
Tammy Chaney says
Kale! It’s the best for me! 🙂
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!
My favorite green vegetable is brussels sprouts! I love them roasted!
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!!
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!
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.
I would like to try it in my spinach smoothie.
Debbie (Accidently Delish) says
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?
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
My favorite green veggie has to be Broccoli or Asparagus! Whichever I can get the best buy on! 😀
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 🙂
Kale with lemon and asparagus please.
Chocolate taste, uh yum! Oh and the green parts are good for you too? Sounds like a win win!!
Jenn TH says
I would the Chocolate Greens just how you suggested! It looks soooooo yummy. Jenn
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.
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!
My favorite green veggie is broccoli!
My favourite green veggies are kale chips and spinach blended into my smoothies.
I know it’s weird, but I actually really love brussel sprouts. Roasted in the oven with olive oil + garlic.. YUM.
My favorite green veggie is spinach! A math symbol for WAY greater than: ++++> 🙂
kale is my favorite!! love to make kale chips.
i’d love to try the greens powder in this smoothie recipe 🙂
Leigh Steele says
Favorite green vegetable….baby zucchini! love them!
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.
My favorite vegetable is broccoli! I can’t seem to get enough of it lately! 🙂
My favorite green vegetable is green beans! And I would use the chocolate powder to try out this recipe!
My favorite green vege is ALL of them! And I would use the powder to make my daughter healthy chocolate treats like ice cream 🙂
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!!!!
I hate most veggies, so I would use this to get some nutrition
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 🙂
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!!
KALE KALE KALE!
I loooove broccoli. Can’t get enough!
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.
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.
Sarah @climbinvegan says
I LOVE Kale.. but sometimes have a hard time getting my leafy greens in.. 🙂
I would use the powder daily in my smoothie!
Pamela Wobig says
Baby spinach leaves for sure!
Yellow Haired Girl says
Definitely spinach! Eat it everyday, at least once 🙂
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.
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???? 🙂
I just made chocolate covered kale for the first time and it was amazing!!! My new favorite way to make greens!!
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?
Hmm, I think my favorite green vegetable would be spinach…green beans are a close second.
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!
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!
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.
Heather @ For the Love of Kale says
KALE, obvi! 😉
I can’t decide between broccoli and cabbage. D:
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.
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!
Favorite green veggie, eh? Green bell peppers!
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.
and I’d use the powder every day in my daily protein smoothie 🙂
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!
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. 🙂
My favorite vegetable is definitely spinach! Great in salads and smoothies :]
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! 🙂
Favorite green veggie: Definitely spinach. It’s so versatile!
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.
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!
I would probably eat this shake for breakfast every morning! Or create my own healthy option too!
I could live off of brussel sprouts. Definitely my FAVORITE green vegetable.
I like all green veggies…but mostly spinach:o)
Nothing beats roasted broccoli tossed with olive oil, garlic pepper and salt!
Like Popeye would’ve chosen, I have to say: Spinach! 🙂
Spinach and Edamame!
I would use it every day in my post-workout shake. Or in smoothies. Possibly both.
*greens are that important, yup*
My favorite green veggie is probably broccoli, roasted in the oven. Spinach is a close second, I love it in green smoothies and salads!
sugar snap peas, yum!
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!
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. 🙂
Broccoli!! Or spinach…depends if cooking or munching. Would love to try this in smoothies or my in favorite chocolate dessert!
Spinach, no doubt! …and it’s about time they consider chocolate a vegetable 😉
Taylor @ Nuts for Apples says
My favorite green veggie lately has been brussels sprouts! I can’t get enough 🙂
My favorite has to be roasted brussels sprouts! I would love try to find a faster way to make a good green/chocolate smoothie.
I just grilled asparagus for the first time last night and fell in LOVE with it…..I think I could eat it every day 🙂 🙂 🙂
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.
I would love to try this product! I love viggies…my favorite green, probably, cucumbers!
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 😉
Kale. Hands-down, kale.
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?
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. 🙂
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!
I love spinach! I use it with everything!
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.
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.
There are so many I love! Since I have to pick, I’ll say spinach, but I love broccoli, too.
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!!!!!!!!!!!!
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…)
Broccoli is my favorite – especially when roasted with bit of olive oil and garlic salt.
favorite green veggie = broccoli!
Kim Thiessen says
Face green veggie…roasted brocolli or just plain broccoli.
Samantha C. says
My favorite green veggie would have to be spinach. Its just so versatile!
my favorite green vegetable (right now) is brussel sprouts. I don’t think they’d be a smart addition to a smoothie though …
My favorite green vegetable is spinach…..it’s delicious in a salad, cooked and in my smoothies!
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 🙂
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?
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. 🙂
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!
My favorite green veggie is spinach!
Sylvia (My Attempt at Balanced Living) says
I LOVE broccoli but spinach comes in a close second especially for use in smoothies and pasta.
My Favorite Green veggie…HmmmmNot sure I could pick just one…Broccolli,Kale,Zucchini,Spinach- I love them all!
Jessica Drake says
My favorite veggie is an oven baked sweet potato! Yum!
Jade C says
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 😉
Jessica Drake says
Oh whoops, it was supposed to be green.. Broccoli!
love pretty much all greens, but i’ll have to say kale and broccoli!
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!
i love broccoli!!
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!
Jenelle York says
My favorite green vegetable is kale. I add is to smoothies, soups, pastas…
I think spinach is my favorite. I love it fresh in a giant salad or added to soups, stews, pastas, etc!
if i won the first thing i would do would be make this smoothie. it sounds delicious!!
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!
Holly F. says
Mmmmm, I love asparagus so much! Love, love, love it!
Wondering if you can bake with it. Hmmm….
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!
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! 🙂
Danni (Healthy Kitschy Vegan) says
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!
Awesome! I think my favorite is zucchini~
But I’ve been eating a ton of spinach lately! 😀
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!
My favorite green veggie is asparagus. I’d use the powder to make that yummy smoothie!
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 🙂
Jialin Zhang says
I love spinach! spinach everything; in salads, smoothies, cooked, raw, any way!
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 🙂
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…
Christy Kinder says
I would add the Greens powder to my breakfast smoothie to add extra nutrition!
Tiffany C says
My favorite is broccoli
Jessica B says
Hmmm.. I love peas and green peppers!
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! 🙂
My favorite green veggie is spinach! And I can see I have a new favorite blog to follow! Chocolate! YUMMY!
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!
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. 😉
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!
Brittany @ GOtheXtraMile says
So hard to chose just one, but I’d have to say broccoli!
Laura @bitemevegan says
My favorite green vegetable is kale.
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.
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.
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.
Favorite green – arugula! And I’d use the powder for those emergency chocolate cravings… and probably as a post workout drink!
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.
The Better Baker says
I would love to make smoothies with this ‘veggie’ filled powder…I love fresh green peas the very best!
Spinach and brussells sprouts. The mix would be used for smoothies—-yummy!
I’m loving snap peas lately…they have sweet, satisfying crunch and remind me that spring is almost here! 🙂
Marlee @ SweetHealthNut.com says
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 🙂
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.
allison n. says
Broccoli, or maybe asparagus
Hi Katie~this is the first time I am leaving a comment on your site,even though I’ve been following for several months. I just recently started getting healthy. You are such an inspiration! I have only tried a couple of your recipes & all have been de~lish!
My fav green veggie is spinach! I wish I could say that sometimes I eat too many veggies, but definitely not the case for me….yet! I am going to try this green powder in hopes of getting more of the veggie benefits now! Thanks for your blog~I am so glad I stumbled upon it! 🙂
I love spinach and broccoli!
Spinach is my favourite!
Kat @ a dash of fairydust says
Zuchhiniiiiiii! And spinach.
I’d use the powder in smoothies,I think. Yum! 😀
our protein shakes everyday could use a shake up like this!
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!
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
Avocados! There is nothing better
I’ve never heard of these! But the product sounds cool! Thanks for introducing it!
Sharon M says
I like all greens. I like to cook with spinach. I have been struggling with the taste of a protein powder smoothie. Maybe this would solve the problem. I would sure love to try it!
I LOVE green vegetables, Artichokes, brussel sprouts, celery, and so on through the alphabet
Tanya @ Dine, Dash, and Deadlift says
Hmm, I love most all green vegetables. Zucchini, Brocolli, Green Bell Peppers, Spinach, etc. Bring them on!
I have to say I love kale lately.
LOVE your recipes! The green mint milkshake has been a HUGE hit our house!
I’d have to say my favorite green veggie is Asparagus! I love it roasted with some olive oil, salt and pepper!
How do I choose a favorite green veggie? Snap peas, edamame, spinach, broccoli- I love it all!
My favorite green vegetable is, by far, spinach! Always has been!
I love spinach! Salads, smoothies, etc.
I love asparugus!! Simply steamed and with lemon and salt…. perfect!
I’d have to say asparagus or green peppers! 🙂
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!
Laurel C says
I’m a broccoli fiend!!! I love it!
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.
Katie @ Nutrition in a Peanut Shell says
My favorite green vegetable is broccoli! When steamed right? Mmmmgmgmgm
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!
Julie P says
fav green veggie- cucumbers!
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. 😉
I love broccoli rabe
Green aspargus and collard greens are my favorite vegs…. Or yellow bellpeppers, … Or zucchini? I dont know, vegetables are just…. – yumm! I would combine the powder with mixed, overnight soaked oats to have some kind of chocolate batter for breakfast 🙂 hugs, v.
I love petits pois! They have a cute name and they’re delicious – what’s not to love there?
favorite green by far is broccoli! Can add to almost any dish and so many creative ways to jazz it up!
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.
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 🙂
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.
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. )
Leslie Wingate says
Asparagus for sure! The kids jump up and down when I bring it home like I just brought home candy. 😉
favorite green veggie..hmmm, a big box of herb mixed lettuce. Love me some salad. =0) The first thing I would make, your recipe of course and not just saying that either. That smoothie looks amazing and I LOVE them thick and creamy.

I love adding spinach to everything! Well not everything. But lots of things! I’ve discovered asparagus can be very tasty too. Oh and brocoli… except in my teeth.
spinach in salads or cooked love it .. mixed greens,collard greens,broccoli , green apples…
I would love to try this in a smoothie.
I’d add this to some kale & spinach for a chocolate-y smoothie!
My favorite green veggie is actually spinich. Boring, I know! 🙂
My favorite green vegetable are sugar snap peas! They are so good I even sneak them into the movie theater!
Hmmmm, I’d have to say Kale! Or maybe….nope it’s Kale for me 🙂
I love all kinds of green veges – snap peas are my current favorite.
I think I might like to try this powder in the coconut whipped cream – yum!
My latest favorite green veggie is kale. I’ve been putting it in everything!
Broccoli…or cucumbers. Although very hard to pick!! I would LOVE to have this silk smoothie as a bedtime snack….when I am craving chocolate and trying hard to not eat something horrible for me!! I would also use it in smoothies for my kids. They love mommy’s smoothies, and I love to trick them with what I put in them! (avocado, spinach,ect).
Spinach, and baby bok choy! Yum! 🙂
Haley @ Health Freak College Girl says
oh gosh favorite green vegetable?? let’s see…spinach, broccoli, brussels sprouts, zucchini, green beans, swiss chard. love them all!
Love, love spinach! You can add it to everything from chocolate smoothies (with Barlean’s Chocolate silk, hehe) or stirred in with a hot vegan soup. mmmmh. It’s got style, it’s versatile ; )
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!
Spinach is my favorite green vegetable. I love to add it to omelets and smoothies!
My all time favorite green veggies is Brussels Sprouts 😉 Could eat them every day if my family didn’t gripe about it.

Miranda @ Miranda's Munchies says
SPINACH! And if I won the giveaway I’d make this smoothie because it looks mighty fine!
I’m from the UK and L.O.V.E your blog!
This product looks fab and if i won the supply i would enjoy smoothies each day to help me get big and strong for the little baby i have (growing) on the way!
All greens are good, but my favourites are cabbage, celery, spinach, peppers, cucumber- pure YUM – next on my list is a Vita-mix to whizz it all up together, thanks for the inspiration x
My favorite green veggie is kale because I know it’s amazing for me!
Brussell sprouts. Chocolate milk or silk chocolate cake!
Definitely asparagus. Mmm.. so good 🙂
i really like kale! i haven’t included it in a smoothie yet because i don’t think my blender can handle it.
I LOVE collard greens 🙂
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!
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).
Greetings from one of your new followers! My favorite green veggie is broccoli. If I won this giveaway, I’d use the powder to make a smoothie on mornings when I’m trying to fly out the door to get to work.
My favorite green vegetable is spinach. It’s easy to sneak into things… But man I’d love a good chocolate option for my morning smoothies! Great giveaway!
MMM, this looks tasty and like something else I need to try. My favorite green veggie is asparagus grilled or baked with olive oil and a little seasoning. YUM!
Kale, brussel sprouts, and spinach. I would use this powder with my smoothies or oatmeal every morning for breakfast.
My favorite green veggie is……….lettuce!
my favorite would have to be cucumbers!! I love how they are so juicy!!
My favorite green veggie is probably Brussels sprouts, sauted in olive oil with mushrooms. But I also love fresh spinach or grilled asparagus. I would definitely use the powder for milkshakes – yum! 🙂
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!
Steamed broccoli is my favorite!!
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! 🙂
Shannon Roche says
My favorite green vegetable is definitely kale. At least this week.
[email protected] says
Broccoli’s my all-time favourite… but spinach comes close!
Fav veggie? probably spinach and/or tomato’s
I think it would be good with ANYTHING.
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!
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!
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! 😀
I would definitely make this smoothie! Haha. Kale is my favorite green veggie though.
Spinach is by far my favorite green! I eat it at least twice a day!
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!
Winter favorite green: Swiss chard. Summer: sugar snap peas.
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! 😀
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!
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…
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! 🙂
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
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!
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!)
Favorite vegie…can that be possible???
Today it’s kale…makes me feel super-human!
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! 🙂
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!
I would try making some brownies with this! Chocolately healthiness….yummmm.
Kristin @ Treat. Eat. Repeat. says
Gina G says
Swiss Chard or Broccoli! 🙂
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!
Pixie Vincent says
There are so many green veggies to love! I esp. like broccoli.
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??
BROCCOLI!!! I’m having broccoli soup for dinner as I write this post! =)
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!
Rebecca @ Naturally Healthy and Gorgeous says
I love zucchini!
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!
My favourite green veggie is without a doubt cucumber, but I also love spinach!
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)
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
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.
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 🙂
My favorite green vegetable is spinach! It has a mild taste and it is so healthy and delicious 🙂
Laura Martin says
oooo – I would LOVE THIS!!! I’m seeing mint chocolate chip cookies!
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 🙂
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!
I love asparagus! Yummmm. I would love to try this powder! 🙂
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.
My favorite green is dinosaur kale.
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
JM Langhammer says
I <3 Brussels sprouts! I also like making green smoothies & it sounds like this might be yummy for those too.
I LOVE spinach!
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!
Favourite green veggie= avocado! The butter of vegetables.
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.
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.
Favorite veggie? Carrots or broccoli.
Favourite green veggie? Broccoli for sure 🙂
Kim of Mo'Betta says
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!
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!
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! 🙂
I love asparagus and brocoli! Both taste so good steamed with lemon juice.
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!
Wow, my favorite veggie is tough! I think I’d have to say Brussel sprouts! Or broccoli…or spinach…
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!
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:)
kale <# <# <3
kale <3 <3 <3
Favorite green veggie…asparagus! I’d use it for smoothies with brown rice protein, some leafy greens, and unsweetened hemp milk!
love spinach!!! especially as a salad 🙂
green peppers is my fav green veggie
Sassy Stephanie says
My favorite green veggie is Spinach! I eat it just about every day!
Broccoli or Cucumbers! I could easily eat all of my vegetable servings for the day with just those two alone!
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 😀
I like okra, brussels sprouts, and spinach. I would love to try these chocolate smoothies. I really love chocolate!
Broccoli Broccoli Broccoli or brussel sprouts!
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!
Broccoli and spinach! I’m really hoping I win! I love love love the idea of chocolate greens!!!
Brussel sprouts – roasted!
I loveeeee green snap peas!!!! 🙂 This Greens Chocolate powder would be good added to the banana bread pudding oatmeal recipe! YUmmmm!
It has to be asparagus. It’s like to eat it with my fingers.
I am hesitant about getting greens from chocolate powder…my fav is spinich! But I’m willing to try anything that you endorse!
Jennifer D. says
Favorite green veggie: baby spinach 🙂
Green– broccoli or Avocado!!!!
I would use this to make pancakes or healthy protein muffins 🙂
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…
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!!!
I would love to use this in smoothies! Looks delicious!
Mary Grace says
My favorite green vegetable is for sure asparagus! Can’t wait to make your guacamole 🙂
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!
Swiss Chard is my favorite greenie. I’d love to freeze this smoothie into ice pop molds and make summertime treats!
Cara D says
Spinach – you can add it to anything!
Nicole A. says
Yellow bell peppers!
Lauren @ What Lauren Likes says
Brocolli or brussel sprouts! I love spinach too. Green’s my fave color 🙂
Edamame of course! (wait- edamame are vegetables, right??)
I love spinach!!!
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) 🙂
Christy H says
Fav. green veggie: spinach with apple cider vinegar
I do not like green veggies. That is a really good reason as to why I need to win this.
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
Kelsey Hibberd says
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!)
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.
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.
