Superfood Paleo Collard Green Wrap

 

 Sometimes I'm not in the mood for a salad. I LOVE my salads, they are GIGANTIC the size of my head + are fun to create + enjoy, but sometimes I'm just not in the mood. Collard green wraps are a great way to feel like you're eating a sandwich, but with the health benefits of a salad! Don't worry too much about sticking to the ingredients exactly, any chopped veggie would be awesome in this wrap. 

 

 GATHER:

  • 4 large collard leaves
  • 3/4 cup hummus, tahini, pesto or spread of choice
  • 1 tomato, sliced into thin wedges
  • 1 medium carrot, cut in half and sliced into thin strips
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, sliced into thin strips
  • 2 Persian cucumbers, sliced into thin strips
  • 1/2 cup pea sprouts
  • 1/4 red onion, sliced into thin strips
  • 1/8 head of red cabbage, shredded
  • green dream superfoods, to taste

DO THIS:

  1. Put raw collard leaves in a plastic bag + freeze them until they turn bright green, about an hour. This makes them more pliable without losing any raw nutrition.
  2. Run the leaves briefly under cold water and lay them topside down on a cutting board. Using a paring knife, gently shave down the raised part of the spines so the surface of the collard is nice and flat. Spread 3 T of hummus/spread of choice down the center of each leaf + distribute the rest of the vegetables evenly among the leaves, laying them parallel to the spines. Be sure to leave about an inch on each edge uncovered. Sprinkle Green Dream Superfoods on top. 
  3. Roll the collard tops and bottoms (stem side) inward, fold one of the long sides in, tucking all the filling underneath it, and continue rolling the leaf from that side to the other side to get a tight wrap. Slice in half with a sharp knife.

Green Dream Matcha Chia Pudding Recipe

Green Matcha Chia Pudding

Matcha chia pudding is a vegan, healthy, energizing snack! Created with matcha powder, coconut milk, Green Dream, chia, cinnamon, and vanilla, it's a lovely way to start the day. Plus, you can definitely prep this one the night before – it only takes 5 minutes! 

Green Dream and matcha team up to make this satisfying and detoxifying pudding an AMAZING source of antioxidants. Spirulina, the star ingredient in Green Dream, is bursting with antioxidants, including zeaxanthin, cryptoxanthin, phycocyanin, betoa-carotein, superoxide dismutase, and lutein. These free-radical fighting molecules bolster the immune system, combat invasive viruses and pathogens, and promote healthy vision and beautiful skin.

Matcha powder is actually an even more potent source of nutrients! In drinking the finely powdered leaves, your body is flooded with antioxidants called polyphenols, which have been linked to promoting heart health, regulating blood sugar levels, and reducing blood pressure. Matcha also contains another polyphenol called EGCG that's been shown to stop cancer cell growth and support the metabolism–which explains why the price tag on matcha is quite a bit higher than green tea bags!

This Green Dream Matcha Chia Pudding is a delicious snack and natural form of medicine full of fiber and healthy fats to keep you satisfied all morning! Top it with granola and fresh fruit!

 

Green Superfood Matcha Chia Pudding

Gather This:

2 cups coconut milk
½ cup chia seeds
1 teaspoon Green Dream Superfood Blend
1 teaspoon matcha powder
1 teaspoon Cosmic Elixir (optional & great source of collagen!)
1 tablespoon vanilla
½ teaspoon cinnamon
granola, nut butter, cacao nibs, bee pollen (toppings) 

     

    Do This:

    Combine all ingredients in a large jar, put the lid on, and shake well! Let it sit for at least 1 hour in the fridge, during which time it'll take on a gel-like pudding texture! Top with your favorite toppings like granola, nut butter, bee pollen, and cacao nibs!

    Chia seed pudding is the PERFECT nourishing and nutrient-dense breakfast or snack that you can prepare ahead of time for the week. It’s creamy, delicious and loaded with fiber, nutrients, protein, and healthy fats. No cooking, no chopping, and literally only a handful of ingredients. 


    The coconut milk makes this pudding so thick and creamy, and loads it up with an ample dose of saturated fats to support brain function and healthy appetites. We’ve also added some Green Dream for a detoxifying and energizing boost of superfoods.


    TIP: You can prepare a few mason jars with chia pudding and leave them in the fridge, they can be easily taken to work for a healthy snack and are perfect after a yoga practice. The chia pudding keeps well for about 3-4 days in the fridge.

    Makes: 1-2 servings


    Gather This:

    ¼ cup chia seeds

    1 ½ cups of canned coconut milk

    1 tbsp superfood honey (we used Cosmic Dream but any raw superfood honey would work!)

    1-2 tbsp Green Dream


    Do This:

    Pour the entire can of coconut milk into a bowl then mix in your chia seeds, honey and Green Dream. Make sure all of your ingredients are combined, then add a large mason jar or storing container. Set your pudding in the fridge to chill (until the chia seeds absorb the liquid- about an hour so).  

    Once ready to enjoy, give it a good stir and add a little sea salt or sweetener to taste, along with some of your favorite toppings.
