Serving up easy and healthy breakfast smoothies that taste like a dream! Today’s Chocolate Smoothie Recipe with Coconut and Chai is satisfying and sweet. Just what I need to start my day off on the right track.
Now that school is back in session, our morning time is rush, rush, rushed!
We get the kids up at 6:30am whizz through primping, then head downstairs to pack lunches and prepare breakfast before we head out the door at 7:20. That’s a lot to pack into 50 minutes, but none of us can stomach getting up any earlier than 6:30 in the morning.
It can be tricky to prepare a healthy and filling breakfast in the 10-15 minutes we allow for breakfast each day. And honestly, most of the things I can think to feed the kids in a short timeframe are loaded with junk.
So most days we rely on a good smoothie recipe to keep the kids happy, fill our tummies, and pump us full of vitamins and minerals.
One of our favorites is a chocolate smoothie recipe with coconut and chai… and Yes, it’s full of vitamins and minerals. I promise.
I accomplish this by adding a scoop of Greens+ Advanced Multi Superfood to each smoothie.
Greens+ is a powerful powdered greens blend packed with raw green foods, superfruits, sea vegetables, herbs, probiotics, and vitamins. It is soy free, dairy free, gluten free and non-gmo.
You can mix it with water and take a shot of greens for a healthy morning boost, or you can mix it into your favorite chocolate smoothie recipe, like we do.
We love adding Greens+ Vanilla Chai Superfood to our chocolate smoothie recipe with coconut milk, for a rich blend of complex flavors. The touch of chai spices and creamy coconut milk, make this a healthy smoothie the kids beg for!
Another Greens+ product we discovered this year are the +PlusBars. Greens+ makes a variety of Energy, Protein, and Superfood bars that pair well with smoothies in the morning, and make great healthy snacks on the go.
The kids have been taking +PlusBars in their lunch boxes. It’s a treat that I feel good about giving them.
We especially love the Chocolate Peanut Butter Chia Crisp +PlusBars made with crispy brown rice, dark chocolate, and chia seeds.
And guess what… They happen to pair perfectly with today’s smoothie!

These all look great. Thanks
I love all things natural and superfoods-ish … and the protein bars are awesome!
Wow – that smoothie sounds crazy good. I am so trying that for breakfast!
Have been drinking smoothies to lose weight and I would love to try the green powder for a health boost!
I tried a superfood once and it was amazing; I felt so good. I don’t know why I stopped using one and really need to start again; my diet hasn’t been the best and I’m not feeling that great. This superfood would help me get back on track with my health.
I like chia seeds, I use them in smoothies!
The bars look great – haven’t tried them yet.
I haven’t tried this certain brand. I do eat superfoods pretty frequently though
I could use a quick healthy snack when I work my 12 hour shifts!
I eat chia seeds on a regular basis and I think they really give me an energy boost!
I have been looking at the Superfood greens for a while but haven’t gotten the nerve to buy it. I definitely would love to try both products.
Not sure there is such a thing as a “superfood” bout would love to try a Greens+ product
I’ve never tried a super food but have recently starting working out with a trainer and looking to eat healthier.
Would love to take these on my hikes.
who doesn’t need extra nutrients in their lives?
We use Chia seeds in our morning smoothies. They are nice to thicken up the smoothies, too.
Never tried a superfoods product before but since i love to try different ingredients for my everyday smoothie, i’m excited about trying this product…thanks..
My daughter got me to use a superfood product a couple of years ago and I did notice I had more energy and just felt better overall. I didn’t keep up with it, mostly due to cost. I’d love to try these products!
I always am looking for new ways to add nutrients into my diet!
I am pinning this recipe & will find the green product to try this smoothie!! sounds great and to win the products would be a bonus!! thank u
Sounds delicious! I love chia seeds!
This smoothie looks amazing! Chia seeds are my go to super food :)
I have tried other green powders, but this one looks great!
I love greens plus products but.recently going on disability can not afford it and I can definitely tell the difference on how I feel. It would be an amazing blessing to win this packahe!
I’m sure they have a lot more fiber in them than what I have eaten recently!
This smoothie looks delicious! And these PlusBars look like the perfect grab-n-go snack!
I have tried greens powder. It helps me have energy and focus.
I love smoothies!!! Would love to try these :D

Discovered Greens+ about 16 yrs ago & they are a FABULOUS, honest company.
This would be great for a boost of energy after a work-out.
I eat superfoods all the time. They keep me healthy and I love it.
Those look so good! I have to try them!!
I try to make healthy meals but we are always and the go and sometimes we do not get adequate amounts of nutrition. I would be grateful to try these products
I would love this! Such a nice opportunity!
I have tried the super foods and the peanut butter Plus Bar with protein is my favorite.
It gives me plenty of energy and tastes great almost like a Mary Jane candy at Halloween.
I haven’t had a plus bar, but chia seeds are one of my favorite toppings for salads, yogurt, froyo, etc!
would love to try this. Thanks
I have tried Chia Seeds & Goji Berries (not sure if that is a “super food”) I usually add them to pancake batter or toss on a salad. I’m always looking for ways to improve my diet as well as my family’s .
Great smoothie! Mornings are so rushed, and this would definitely get the kids full before we have to rush out the door.
My husband has been using greens plus berry blast in his morning smoothies for years! I had no idea they had all these other products, yum!
I could definitely use all of the help I can get staying healthy with the new job I just started!
Never have tried a superfood. I think this would come in handy to energize me throughout the day and after my workouts.
I’ve tried Acai berries. I think it would be great for a little cleansing and to build up my immune system.
I have not tried a superfood yet. This should help fuel my tennis game.
I have tried chia seeds and goji berries. I have also tried greens plus multi. Lol, it was okay, should have put it in a smoothie though!
Love this smoothie and those Plus bars are the best-such good flavors.
I actuall had an Acai bowl today! That is a superfood. I also take regular shots of wheatgrass, which definitely don’t taste as good as Acai. haha. I know that they also sell acai powder to make bowls with, which I would love to do at home!! I really do believe that eating superfoods contributes to your overall wellness. I know the peanut m&ms at work sure don’t haha.
The only super food I’ve tried is Chia seeds. I’d be interested to try Greens+ to improve my health. I like that you can add it to water or smoothies.
I haven’t tried any of the new bars, I love the Greens plus natural energy and chocolate bars. They are tasty and I feel that they fuel my body in a heathy way. I look forward to trying the new ones.
Never tried, but am a health food nut so I would!
I have never tried a superfood or chia. I have been thinking about it because of the healthy benefits.

I have never tried a superfood product, but now that winter is quickly advancing I know I could use the extra nutrition. The powder would be great in a smoothie.
Not tried super foods, but would like to as we are changing our lifestyle to become healthier.
I’ve never tried a superfood product. It would make breakfasts. healthier.
We have not tried a commercial superfood – just what grows in our gardens. The bars would be a great snack to use while out in the fields working.
