Superfood Iced Tea Recipes

Let me start off by saying that i'm a pretty avid tea-drinker. I usually begin my morning with a big cup of detox tea, and I also enjoy sipping on herbal varieties before I go to bed.The aromas are always so soothing, and I love the sensation of my body being warmed from the inside out.

And speaking of warmth, summer is right around the corner. But when the sun starts to blaze down on your skin, drinking a warm beverage doesn't seem like such a "hot" idea. 

Well, it just so happens to be National Iced Tea month! So I was thinking that chilling out with some freshly- brewed tea, fruit, and of course, some ice, is a pretty good way to celebrate. And bringing some Berry Bliss to the party makes it super easy to elevate a basic iced tea to a nourishing beverage... and supercharging it with antioxidants and superfoods like came camu + mangosteen.

 

 

So grab a cup, glass, bottle or pitcher... summer is literally just a few sips away! 

 

Gather This:

For the Gogi Tea

For the Pineapple Tea

Do This:

1. Base: Start each batch of tea by bringing your water to a boil. Turn off the heat, and add the desired amount of tea bags. Steep for 10 minutes.

2. Goji Tea: Soak 2 tablespoons of goji berries in warm water for 10-15 minutes. Then the softened berries to a blender, along with the steeped tea and Berry Bliss powder. Pulse until all ingredients are combined, and strain if desired. Set aside to cool, and add ice as needed!

3. Pineapple Tea: Add your fresh pineapple to the tea while it is steeping. Then add the mixture to a blender, along with the Berry Bliss Powder. Pulse until all ingredients are combined, and strain if desired. Set aside to cool, and add ice as needed!

* Add citrus slices, Berry Bee Honey, or even some fragrant herbs! And feel free to dump your ice cubes in whole, or blend everything together for slushy!

Easy Superfood Pumpkin Spice Latte

One of our favorite ways to use our seasonal pumpkin spice superfood blend, Fall Vibes is in our morning coffee. We’re sharing an easy superfood pumpkin spice latte recipe that’s delightfully sweet and so much better for you than your go-to $5 latte!


 If I had to describe what the flavors of fall would be, I would use this blend. It’s creamy, light and sweet that doesn’t leave you tired, heavy or achy from added sugar. It’s entirely vegan and all organic. You know, only the good stuff. 


What’s in a Pumpkin Spice Latte?

In the PSLs you find at your local coffee shop you’ll find ingredients that aren’t so great for the body and often include LOTS of sugar and sweeteners. Making it at home meals you CHOOSE the ingredients and can sub out any sugars or sweeteners for better options.


Our seasonal FALL VIBES blend is only available for a limited time with a limited amount in stock so make sure to get your hands on it. It has a shelf life for a year so you can celebrate fall all year long!

Gather This:

1 cup almond milk

2 tbsp pumpkin puree canned or fresh

2 tsp maple syrup

1 tsp Fall Vibes

1 tsp Cacao Magic (optional)

½ cup strong brewed coffee or 2 shots of espresso


Do This:

Combine almond milk, pumpkin, maple syrup, Fall Vibes and Cacao Magic (optional) in a small saucepan over a medium low heat. Whisk everything together and as soon as the milk begins to simmer, shut off the heat and transfer the milk mixture to a blender.

Add a cup of strong brewed coffee to the blender and blend for 10 seconds or until light and frothy. (You can also add the coffee right to the pot and skip the blender but the blender does add a bit of extra froth to the top.)

Pour into your favorite mug. Top with fresh cinnamon and enjoy!

Persimmon Pumpkin Bread

Fall is here and we are LOVING making all our favorite fall recipes. Have you tried persimmon? They make an incredible addition to pies, smoothies, breads, taste great raw and so good added into a nice cream with Cacao Magic and Fall Vibes!


Persimmons have incredibly high fiber contents which means that they promote a healthy digestive tract and will keep you feeling full longer. The bright red-orange color of the persimmon is due to high levels of disease-fighting phytonutrients and nourishing antioxidants like vitamins A, C, and K, all of which prevent cellular damage and reduce the signs of aging. Persimmons are also a good source of betulinic acid, a compound that has been shown to have anti-tumor properties!


We’re loving this jack-o-lantern shaped persimmon pumpkin bread created by the insanely talented Danielle of @cacaoforcoconuts_ using our seasonal Fall Vibes. Enjoy this delicious fall treat!

Gather This:

2 cups quick oats blended to flour⁣

⅓ cup carob powder (or cocoa)⁣

2 ripe bananas⁣

⅓ cup pumpkin purée ⁣

1 tsp Fall Vibes

1 tsp baking soda⁣


Do This:

Combine everything in a food processor.⁣
Preheat oven to 350°F.⁣
Spray or line a dish with parchment paper!⁣
Top with persimmons (make them little pumpkins)⁣
Bake for 23-25 minutes until bread is firm!⁣
Cool and enjoy!⁣

Apple Pie Autumn Superfood Smoothie

Fall Smoothie

It’s apple season! We have a super easy apple pie autumn smoothie for you that feels and tastes like fall. We added our seasonal superfood blend, Fall Vibes for this dreamy smoothie, which instantly transformed this smoothie into an autumn treat full of grounding adaptogens and healing superfoods.

They are also full of fiber which helps keep you feeling full longer and makes apples an excellent food to keep on hand if you’re trying to maintain a healthy diet.

2 apples (cut for easy blending)

I can't survive a morning if I don’t get my morning boost and my go-to is this amazing superfood coffee. It has all I need to wake me up and fuel my body for the day - it's basically self-care in a cup.

Gather This:

1 cup high-quality coffee (I love cold-brew or brewed)

Cold Brew Coffee Recipe

If you’re looking to switch it up this cold brew recipe uses our Coconut Magic Coconut Butter to help slow down the absorption of caffeine so it doesn’t make you feel anxious or jittery like coffee alone.

Gather This:

1 cup of cold brew of choice

¼ cup coconut creamer or full fat coconut canned organic milk

1 tsp Cacao Magic Superfood Blend, Cacao Bee Honey and 1 tbsp Cacao Magic Coconut Butter (buy all 3 in our Superfood Coffee Bundle)

What are you grateful for? We have a CHOICE each and every day to see the world and our lives as we want to see them.

 

 

Healing Cacao Cinnamon Date Latte

This version is all-around better for you than a traditional latte you’d buy at your local coffee shop and - in our opinion - tastes better too! The only sweetener used is from Medjool dates, a bit of cinnamon (or our Fall Vibes Superfood Blend for warming spices) and vanilla extract. Not only that, but the scoop of Cacao Magic adds protein, magnesium, and mushroom magic from the reishi.

Gather This:

1 cup unsweetened almond milk

1 tbsp almond or nut butter (we used pecan butter)

1 large Medjool Date (pitted and roughly chopped)

1 tbsp Cacao Magic Superfood Blend

½ tsp ground cinnamon or 1 tsp Fall Vibes Superfood Blend

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

½ - ½ cup of coffee

Do This:

Brew your favorite coffee blend and set aside. In a saucepan, bring all the ingredients (except the coffee) to a low boil.  Remove from heat and place in a high-speed blender. Blend until smooth and creamy. Taste test and adjust flavors as needed. Pour anywhere from ¼ - ½ cup of coffee in your favorite mug and top with the milk blend. ENJOY!

 

 

Magical Cacao Mushroom Coffee Latte

Our go-to superfood coffee recipe kicked up a notch with mushroom coffee, ghee and collagen! We added our Cacao Magic Superfood Blend for a delicious boost of superfood protein and our Cacao Bee Honey for a touch of sweetness and immunity!

Gather This:

1 cups your favorite plant-based milk

1 tsp Cacao Magic Superfood Blend

1 tsp Cacao Bee Honey

1 tbsp Fourth & Heart Ghee (optional but makes it extra creamy; can also sub with coconut butter)

1 packet Four Sigmatic Mushroom Coffee (or 1-2 cups brewed coffee)

1 scoops collagen 

Do This:

Combine all in a blender then heat on the stovetop. Enjoy!

 

 

Cacao Cinnamon Dulce Latte

Cold brew coffee is less acidic than espresso. Secondly, the only sweetener we use is our Cacao Bee Honey. It’s great because not only does it sweeten the drink, but it actually offers nutritional benefits too! Our raw honey strengthens immunity, has antibacterial properties and antioxidants, and aids digestion. Not only that, but the scoop of Cacao Magic adds protein, magnesium, and mushroom magic from the reishi.

Gather This:

1 cup cold brew coffee

1 cup nut milk

1 Tbsp Cacao Magic

2 tsp Cacao Bee Honey

1 tsp Coconut Magic Coconut Butter

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

Do This:

Blend all of the ingredients in a high speed blender for 30 seconds to 1 minute and then pour over ice

For a frappuccino variation, blend the mixture with a cup of ice added to it

Top with coconut flakes, cinnamon, or whatever your heart desires!!
