Butternut Squash + Brussels Sprouts GF StuffingGather:
- 1 pound butternut squash, cubed
- 1 pound brussels sprouts, halved
- 1 medium gala apple, cut into a 1/2 inch dice
- 2 shallots, thinly sliced
- 3 T olive oil, divided into 2 T + 1 T
- 1 C onion, diced
- 1 C celery, diced
- 10 slices bread of choice: crusty sourdough, dry cornbread, whole grain, or, if you are gluten free, millet bread from Food For Life will work nicely. Prior to preparing the recipe, leave bread out for a day to become slightly dry, then cut into cubes.
- 1 1/2 C low sodium vegetable broth (plus extra as needed)
- 2 t fresh rosemary, chopped
- t fresh thyme
- t chopped fresh sage
- 1/3 C dried cranberries or dried goji berries
- 1/3 C pecans or walnuts
- Sea salt + pepper to tasteDO THIS:
- Heat oven to 400 degrees. Toss the squash, brussels sprouts, apples, + shallots in 2 T oil, season well with salt + pepper. Roast till vegetables are very tender (I actually like my sprouts a bit singed) and remove from oven. Reduce oven heat to 350.
- Heat other tbsp oil in a large pot. Sautee the onion + celery till translucent (about 5-8 min). Add the bread cubes and allow them to get golden brown with the veggies in the oil. Add a dash of salt and pepper.
- Add the roasted vegetables, vegetable broth, cranberries (or goji berries), pecans, + seasonings. Stir the mix till the broth has almost entirely absorbed in the toasted bread. Transfer to a baking sheet + bake at 350 for about 20 minutes. Serve hot.
We’re celebrating the start of autumn and the re-launch of our seasonal superfood blend, Fall Vibes by making this delicious pumpkin spiced latte by Philosophie Babe, Danielle Bear (@cacaoforcoconuts_)!
Who says you can’t have clean + nourishing pumpkin spiced lattes? No us! We love our seasonal superfood blend because it’s loaded with high vibrational superfoods and adaptogens to support your body during this season of release and softness. Our Fall Vibes blend has been lovingly crafted by all of us and was specifically created with you in mind. Made from healing adaptogens, nutrient-dense superfoods, and traditional fall spices it’s the best way to celebrate fall without sacrificing your health with artificial sweeteners.
Enjoy this creamy, cozy latte with a cacao cookie! It’s creamy, light and sweet and doesn’t leave you heavy or achy from artificial sweeteners. It’s entirely vegan and all organic. You know, only the good stuff.
2 tbsp pumpkin puree
½ cup nut milk
1 tbsp maple syrup
1 heaping tsp Fall Vibes
½ cup coconut creamer (or sub more nut milk)
On the stove, in a small pot, stir the pumpkin, nut milk, maple syrup and Fall Vibes. Start with medium heat then reduce heat and let it thicken slightly. The thickness will depend on the milk you use and what’s in it. I used homemade almond milk so there wasn’t much to thicken.
If you have a frother, froth the coconut creamer or nut milk. If you don’t have one, add this directly to the pot (you can also combine all this into a blender to froth it up slightly).
Pour the pumpkin puree into a mug, top with frothed creamer and some pumpkin spice. ENJOY!
We are head-over-heels for these energizing cacao date bites created by our Philosophie Babe, Monette (@glazedandconfused.co). They’re packed with protein and nutrients that make you feel like a superhuman!
On top of tasting dreamy and delightful, these cacao bites are naturally energizing thanks to the Cacao Magic and dates (which also pack a variety of minerals like calcium, iron, phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, and zinc)!
These are a great alternative to energy bars and so much better for you!
1 cup walnuts
2 scoops collagen protein (optional)
1 dropper Blossom CBD (optional)
1 tsp Lions Mane (optional)
1 tbsp water
A pinch of salt
Pit the dates and chop walnuts. Add all ingredients into a food processor or high-powered blender and blend until well-combined. Roll into 1-inch balls using the warmth of your hands to mold them together. To set, pop in the fridge or freezer for 15 minutes. Otherwise, eat as is! Will keep fresh in an air-tight bag or container for up to a week. Freeze for longer-term storage.

This year somehow felt like summer went by way too fast but also seemed to last for months and months. I’m going to miss the sweet summer moments with my family but I’m making more of an effort to bring more joy and play into our everyday lives.
So while the kiddos are back in zoom school I’ve decided to celebrate the end of summer with this homemade mint chip nice cream recipe! I love how creamy and vibrant this recipe is and the mint flavor is so satisfying. We’ve added lots of dark chocolate chips and topped it with Green Bee Honey for an extra boost of immunity.
Full disclosure, I ate two huge bowls of this nice cream all two myself and felt ZERO guilt about it. It’s so clean! All vegan, gluten-free, paleo and made with whole, real ingredients. Dig in!!
4 cups frozen banana slices (~2large bananas)
⅛ tsp pure peppermint extract, or more as desired
Pinch of salt
½ cup coconut cream
1 tsp Green Bee Honey
2-3 tbsp chocolate chips (we love Lily’s Sweets)
TOPPING: Green Dream Superfood + Protein Blend & Green Bee Honey
Blend on high for 1 to 2 minutes stopping to scrape the sides every so often.
If your blender is having a hard time blending the bananas, add coconut cream or almond milk by the tablespoon. Add in the chocolate chips at the end and blend once.
Once pureed together, your mint chip nice cream should be like a super thick smoothie or soft serve. Option to eat immediately or to transfer to a parchment-lined bread pan to freeze for later.
Freeze nice cream for 1 to 2 hours so that it hardens enough to scoop like ice cream, but isn’t too hard where you can’t scoop it.
Summer is coming to a close but we’re celebrating these final few weeks with healthy, homemade popsicles. These have been a Jaffe staple all summer long and I’ve been making superfood popsicles for my kiddos since they were little babes. It’s the easiest way to sneak in some nutrients and Philosophie superfoods by disguising them as a tasty summer treat.
These apple juice and strawberry pops are all-natural and incredibly sweet and refreshing—mamas love them too!
1 cup unsweetened apple juice (We used a local brand Little West)
1 tsp Liquid Sunshine
2 cups frozen strawberries (thawed)
½ lemon (juiced)
Blend the juice and superfoods together. Pour mixture into popsicle molds and freeze for at least 5 hours or overnight. Serve on a platter for your next pool patter and finish with a drizzle of Berry Bee Honey + a handful of your favorite berries. ENJOY!
Share your fave recipe with us in the comments or drop us a line to tell us why you love our superfoods! Sending you all big hugs on this warm weekend ahead! Enjoy! ♡
