This easy chocolate smoothie is a great way to include just a bit of chocolate into your week. One of the great sponsors for #Choctoberfest is Barlean’s. I’ve had the privilege of working with Barlean’s before and made these great healthy whole grain scones using their butter flavored coconut oil. It’s a one to one substitute for butter. I use it all the time on popcorn.
\I love the Barlean’s story – the Barleans started out as a fishing family, pioneering a direct order system to deliver salmon. One Barlean son got interested in a better way to press flax seed and between the direct order system and the Omega 3 rich flax seed oil, a business was born. Barlean’s products are health-focused. As I said at the start, I’ve made great use of their butter flavored coconut oil. During #Choctoberfest, I got to try out several new ingredients, including the Green Powder Chocolate Silk Flavor and the Essential Woman Omega Swirl Chocolate Mint. The Green Powder Chocolate Silk is an essential ingredient in this easy chocolate smoothie. But I love the Essential Woman Omega Swirl Chocolate Mint , too – it’s so good in my yogurt in the mornings!
Barlean’s Green Powder Chocolate Silk is made with antioxidant-rich fair trade cocoa. You won’t notice the super concentrated blend of greens, fruits, and vegetables, because you will be thoroughly immersed in the great chocolate flavor. Best yet, there’s no added sugar, which means I have no problem adding it to my all natural smoothies.
I’ve been enjoying this easy chocolate smoothie with my lunch all week this week. I’d definitely encourage you to try this smoothie out.
