I received the products from the Barlen’s as a part of #Choctoberfest. However all opinions are mine.
I have to admit it yes I have a weakness for smoothies. I love to make different types of smoothies. After all these years my smoothies got lots of makeover and now it contain at least one super food so that it is guilt free. This time I made this strawberry chia chocolate smoothie using Barlen’s Greens Powder Chocolate Silk Flavor which tuned out be delicious experiment.
My daughter is crazy about raspberry and strawberry, and if these two fruits are in my refrigerator she is a happy person. She likes to eat these berries with a little bit of sugar. However my son is not a sugar guy he loves strawberry if it is naturally sweet. Since both like chocolate I made this delicious smoothie. I like the fact that Barlen’s Greens has cocoa powder you just mix in with any liquid and don’t need to add any sweetener as it is sweetened with Stevia.
I added 1 tablespoon chia seeds to the smoothie, I have chia, goji berries and acai are in hand which I love to add in my smoothie or oatmeal. It won’t hurt any taste.Chia is really high in fiber, providing nearly 11 grams per ounce.
According to American diabetic Association a single serving can provide the recommended fiber intake for the day.
If you have fresh strawberry, cocoa powder in hand make this smoothie with your favorite milk or yogurt. I have only whole milk in hand use that you can use other diary free milk too.
