My husband, Phil,
likes LOVES this Cocoa LeafGreens Milkshake as a treat (in place of chocolate ice cream) when relaxing and watching his favorite movies which are usually made by Nora Ephron (think Sleepless in Seattle, Julie & Julia), Ron Howard (Appollo 13) or anything John Wayne, lol.
Many of my clients (and I) enjoy this as their morning protein shake, 20 minutes or more after taking their BarleyLife Extra or their Garden Trio.
This is a nutrition powerhouse, high in anti-oxidants, vitamins and minerals and protein and tastes…just like a chocolate milk shake!
1 serving of Cocoa LeafGreens contains the (enzyme-rich, nutrient-dense dehydrated juice) of 4 pounds of leafy greens PLUS enzyme-rich dehydrated sprout juices (sprouts are the most nutrient dense time of a plant). Nothing out there compares to this. In addition it has three types of cacao powder, including raw cacao powder!
Cocoa LeafGreens Milkshake
Fabulous Healthful Ingredients
- 1/2 cup Real Coconut Water
- 1/2 cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
- 5 frozen cherries or frozen strawberries (any frozen fruit will work)
- 2 Tablespoons plain yogurt (Safeway naturals organic yogurt is a good choice)
- 1 scoop ProPeas Protein Powder
- 1 teaspoon Cocoa LeafGreens
- Optional (for good fat and a peanutbutter flavor add 2 Tablespoons creamy almond butter)
I like to use an immersion blender (the link is for the one I have, which I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!) for this, whips up quickly, however, you could also use a magic bullet or high speed blender.
Quick and Easy Instructions
Combine all and blend until smooth, serve immediately with a straw and watch for a smile!
NOTE: The frozen fruit gives it the frozen ice cream texture, if you don’t want the extra sugar from fruit just use water, it will still be great! You can also use only coconut water or only almond milk if you prefer.

Note: the difference in the Cocoa LeafGreens Shake with almond butter is primarily increased fat, however, raw almond butter is a good fat. The Cocoa LeafGreens Milkshake with Almond butter is not a weight loss food but is a great health food.
