Harmless Harvest Guest Recipe: Lavender Chia Seed Mousse

 

Raw Organic Chia seeds can swell to ten times their original size, making a small serving very filling. They are known as a superfood by many athletes + competitive fitness models. I love the way they keep me full for a really long time. They also have a very high level of free redial fighting antioxidants which help prevent against disease + aging. 

 

Gather:

 

-4oz Harmless Harvest coconut water

-4oz coconut milk full fat + cream from top

-1/4 C raw organic chia seeds

-1/2 C blueberries

-3 dates

-1/2 T lemon juice

-1-2 drops of lavender oil

1 T Berry Bliss Protein Powder

-1/2 t vanilla

-1 1/2 T coconut palm sugar

-1 T Green Dream coconut butter

-pinch sea salt

 

 

Do This: 

Blend coconut water, coconut milk, palm sugar, lemon and sea salt. Pour mixture into a bowl and add chia seeds. Let chill for at least 45 minutes. Make sure to stir the mixture periodically to keep the chia from settling. You can make this dish the night before so it’s ready to go in the morning! Kiddos love it!

I make a salad dressing with green dream, coconut water, raw Apple cider vinegar, maple syrup and walnut oil. Hymalayan pink salt and pepper. It’s so yummmmmmmm! You all have to try it. I make this when I make my kale and red cabbage salad. Make sure you massage the kale so it’s not so tough to eat.

I like to keep it simple,

Strawberries, banana, kale, chia seeds, flax seeds, cocoa magic philosophie superfood, and some harmless harvest coconut water for a delicious smoothie to start my day!

Add a little gf granola and your set!

Harmless Harvest is the BEST! I absolutely love making smoothies with coconut water and berry bliss w/ frozen berries and bananas, it’s divine.

I would use it in strawberry coconut ice cream. Strawberries, coconut cream, philosophie berry bliss, Harmless Harvest Coconut Water, vanilla and blend!

Michele on

First of all, NO BRAINER! I combine the two all the time – smoothies, chia seed pudding and overnight oats!

My favorite is a chia seed pudding because in a smoothie the unique flavors of each can get lost.

A simple chia pudding with Green Dream and Cacao Magic, using Harmless Harvest as the liquid – is off the charts! Yesssssssssssssssssssssssss!

Fun sweet, healthy Halloween treat: blend harmless harvest with cacao magic, frozen bananas, and throw in some dates for added sweetness. It’s like a chocolate ice cream treat! Yum!! :)

I’d blend the coconut water and lavender with kale…then add in the chia seeds. I’m always on the go so it would be a great drink on the go.

Goji Berry Rose Refresher

Hydration doesn’t have to be boring! Besides our daily dose of sunshine water with liquid chlorophyll there are so many fun ways to get creative with your water. Making a mocktail with a herbal infusion and superfoods adds nutrients to amp up your system and makes it tastier and more vibrant.


A herbal infusion can look like flowers, herbs, spices and fruit to everyday beverages like water, sparkling water or kombucha. These herbal elements have a deliciously subtle taste, don't add extra sugar and add their own set of health benefits depending on the herbs you use. 


Goji berries protect the eyes, support your immune system, and promote healthy skin. Rose provides a bit of magic and a boost of antioxidants, tannins, flavonoids, and essential A, C, D, E, and B3 vitamins. We’ve also added our Berry Bliss which is high in antioxidants, protein, vitamin A, and contains camu camu—one of the world's most abundant forms of vitamin C.


Make sure to top it off with berries and ice for a beautiful spring refresher! 

Gather This:

1 cup hot water

4 tbsp goji berries

2 tbsp dried rose petals

UPON SERVING -

Mixed berries

Kombucha or sparkling water

Juice of half a lemon

1 tsp Berry Bliss

Optional: fresh mint, maple syrup or honey to sweeten


Do This:

Steep the goji berries and rose petals in hot water for at least 20 minutes (ideally overnight) or until the goji berries are soft and the water turns slightly pink and infused with the flavors of the goji berry and rose.

Strain the goji berries and rose from the water and then add kombucha or sparkling water, Berry Bliss, lemon juice and mixed berries. You can add ice for an extra cool beverage.
