This is one thick smoothie… no one is pretending this one works for weight-loss (!!) but it is an awesome treat! Chocolate Silk… smooth, luxurious, rich…from Katie at chocolatecoveredkatie.com. With a domain name like that, what else can your expect!
This is strawberry chocolate deliciousness.
If you are aiming to reduce or maintain your weight, I’m NOT suggesting you add this one to your regular diet. But as an occasional treat – go for it!

Here’s Katie’s commentary…
Meeting my vegetable requirements for the day is never a problem… Therefore I don’t normally seek out fortified products like powdered vegetable drink mixes. But when the Barleans company asked if I wanted to test their new Chocolate Silk green powder… well, they did say the magic word:
So I agreed to give the chocolate powder a try. This powder really is good… and it passed the roommate test as well.
Do I think it’s wise to substitute powder for actual greens in one’s diet? Probably not; but with antioxidants, probiotics, fiber, and protein, this mix would be great for someone who routinely falls short on the recommended servings of leafy greens.
And it’s also great for someone like me—who couldn’t care less about the nutritional benefits and just enjoys the chocolatey taste.
