Delicious food is one of the best parts of life—but not when it leaves you stuck with a sugar hangover or food coma. While it’s good to maintain balance in your diet and savor a few treats, you can avoid the negative health consequences of refined sugar by making healthy recipe swaps whenever possible—just like we have with these sweet chlorella recipes.

Why Add Chlorella to Your Recipes? 

Many people love taking Sun Chlorella as a nutritional supplement for natural body purification, but adding chlorella to your dessert and raw food recipes can further help increase the nutritional value of your meals.

Chlorella contains vitamins and minerals such as D, B12, and iron, which can help build up your immune system, improve your mood, and support your digestive system. These added benefits are superb for any vegan diet that is deficient in these vitamins. Chlorella also contains a special nutrient called Chlorella Growth Factor, or CGF. CGF is rich in nucleic acids, which help support your cellular health. 

Nucleic acids help our bodies naturally produce RNA and DNA, which give “instructions” to our cells and tell them which functions to carry out— such as repair and regeneration. As we age, our natural production of RNA and DNA declines, which is when our cells repair and regenerate more slowly. This is why receiving nucleic acids from dietary sources such as chlorella, is so beneficial to our health at any age.

By improving the health of your cells, the nucleic acids in Chlorella Growth Factor can also help energize your body. Energy production takes place in your cells, so when your cells are healthy, your body can produce long-lasting energy more efficiently (goodbye, espresso!).

Get ready to maintain and improve your natural wellness with not one but two chocolate-covered strawberry recipes—one for when you want to show off and one for you when you are short on time and want that instant gratification. We also have a chocolate bark recipe that is mmm mmm- lost for words good.

Chlorella Chocolate Bark

Recipe by Jacqueline Rayas

This chlorella chocolate bark recipe is unreal- you'll want to make it year-round!



  1. Prepare one baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Melt 1 cup of the chocolate. You can use a double boiler or heat in the microwave for about 45 seconds, stir, then another 15 seconds if needed (depending on the microwave).'

  3. Once fully melted, add Sun Chlorella Powder and make sure the chocolate is evenly green (do not microwave after adding the Chlorella).

  4. Melt the other cup of chocolate. This will be for the white swirl effect.

  5. Pour the Sun Chlorella chocolate mixture onto a baking sheet, spread evenly, and leave it at least ¼ inch thick.

  6. Pour the other cup of chocolate on top of the chlorella chocolate.

  7. Quickly but steadily swirl the two chocolates together with a toothpick until swirls are formed and you get your desired look.
