Heather McClees' Soulful Chocolate Green Dream Smoothie

Posted by: Garden of Life on Monday, July 14, 2014

I enjoy a smoothie post-workout nearly every single day since it’s the absolute most refreshing thing I can fathom putting in my body after a good sweat (not to mention completely delicious.) No matter what ingredients I use, I always include a bit of cacao and greens since they’re both high in magnesium.


Magnesium is important for good bone health, mood health, stress-relief, and can also help with digestive function. It’s best to eat as many magnesium-rich foods throughout the day as possible, especially after a period of physical or mental stress such as a workout or a hard day at the office. So why not enjoy some magnesium-rich foods in a delicious smoothie while you’re at it?

I’ve been having the following recipe for the last week and just can’t get enough. Try this out as a meal-replacement since it’s filling and high in protein, fiber, vitamins, and minerals.


Heather's Soulful Chocolate Green Dream Smoothie



     1 cup cold water

     1 scoop Garden of Life Perfect Fit Protein (I like the Marley Coffee flavor)

     1 scoop Garden of Life Perfect Food Raw Cacao Infusion

     1 tablespoon chia seeds

     1 tablespoon coconut flour (thickens it up nicely)

     4 cups fresh leafy greens

     ½ cup your choice berries- I like acai berry pulp

     1 cup ice

     1 cup unsweetened almond milk

     dash of cinnamon and vanilla extract



Add all the ingredients to your blender in the order listed, blend, and serve!

Your recipe sounds similar to how I make mine now and it's so good! I have never tried coconut flour or other nut flours in my smoothies. I will have to try this, thanks!
