Barleans Chocolate Silk Greens Review {And Giveaway}

We love Barleans Chocolate Silk Greens here at our house so I wanted a chance to share the goodness with all of you!  I was sent a bottle to facilitate my review and wanted to share my and my families opinion with you!

Just a little about the company Barleans taken from their website:  The company originally started as a fishing business in Ferndale, WA but as the industry became harder to make it due to environment and political factors the owners looked to flax oils.  You can read more about how the company started and the history behind Barleans here.

Barleans has a variety of products they produce to be very fresh when you receive them.  Some of which include;  Flax Oils, Flax Oil Blends, Greens, Forti-Flax, Omega Kids and much more.  I want to share my experience with the Chocolate Silk Greens with you!

My Review:
First of all, when we started little girl off on regular milk we tried almond milk at first because I was unsure of cow's milk.  Long story short after switching to Organic cow's milk she wasn't too keen on it at first.  Here comes the "Cocos"  this is what her milk is called in our house.  Now we only put a tiny spoon full in her cup but I do not feel bad about it because of the awesome stuff is it made with!  Here is the list of ingredients from their website:

Here is a list of a few great things about the Powder:

  • More than 50 super foods and supplements
  • MEGA 5,000 ORAC antioxidant value per serving
  • Delicious chocolate flavor made with 100% natural cocoa powder
  • Perfect super-nutrition for the whole family - kid's love it!
  • Zero sugar - sweetened with all-natural stevia leaf extract
  • Perfect replacement for sugar-laden chocolate milk and hot chocolate
  • Delicious hot or cold
  • Dairy and Soy-Free

The jar has a 45 day supply but in our house we don't use a full scoop so it lasts much longer.  Hubby recently told me he has been putting it in his coffee for extra chocolate flavor and goodness.

Below is a picture of how we use it with little girl.  I just put milk in her cup add a little powder then shake well!  There you have "Cocos" and a happy toddler to boot!

You can find Barleans on their website where you can also search to find the closest store near you.  We have it at our local co-op grocery store which is awesome!
