Blackberry Bellini Recipe

This New Year’s Eve, we plan to stay in and keep things really simple, but that doesn’t mean we won’t be enjoying a beautiful cocktail as we toast to the end of one amazing year and the beginning of another. There is something about a glass of champagne or sparkling wine that feels so festive, and adding some fresh fruit puree to create a Bellini can make a simple glass of bubbles feel even more special. Bellinis are classically made with peach puree or nectar, but I love switching things up and using other fresh, seasonal fruits! These Blackberry Bellinis are so easy to make, have the perfect balance of tart and sweet flavors, and will add a touch of elegance to our last evening of 2014!


Gather This:

  • Prosecco sparkling wine, chilled
  • Handful of blackberries
  • Rosemary for garnish


Do This:

Place 3-4 blackberries in a small, sturdy glass and muddle until berries have been mashed into a thick pulp. Spoon mashed blackberries into bottom of champagne glass. (You will need a long thin spoon to do this neatly if your champagne glasses are narrow.) Fill with champagne and garnish with several blackberries skewered on a rosemary sprig. Not a fan of blackberries? Pomegranate seeds would also look beautiful dancing in your glass of bubbles!

Stuffed Mushrooms Recipe

Summer is in full swing and that means more family dinners and backyard parties! I always have dishes ready to go that are simple to make, great for the body and something everyone can enjoy. One of my favorite easy dinner recipes that works great as an appetizer or a dinner side are stuffed mushrooms. 

For this dish, we used crimini mushrooms, which are amazing little “button” mushrooms that add a lot of nutritional value to your meals. They’re low in calories, fill you up with fiber and help boost metabolism. Plus they taste delish making them the perfect summer veggie for dinners with the family and friends!

Gather This:

8-10 crimini mushrooms

½ cup vegan cheese

1 can sliced or quartered artichoke hearts

A handful of kale (finely chopped)

½ cup sun-dried tomatoes (chopped)

1 tsp Green Dream Savory Blend

Do This:

Line up crimini mushrooms on a cookie sheet and spray with EVOO then season with Green Dream Savory Blend

In a large mixing bowl, combine chopped artichoke hearts, sun-dried tomatoes, kale, and vegan cheese. Season with Green Dream Savory Blend. Mix well.

Using a spoon (with the help of your fingers), take a portion of your filling and carefully stuff each mushroom cap. Place into oven and cook for 15 - 17 minutes or until golden brown at 400°.

Red, White & Blue Yogurt Bowl Recipe

Happy 4th of July loves! After an enchanting family vacation in Tel Aviv, I’m thrilled to be back in the United States to celebrate this country’s birthday. With everything that’s been going on in America recently, it might be hard for some people to feel patriotic - but like our bodies, minds, and souls, our country has its own imperfections, and the desire for positive changes that we want to see it make come from our love for the place we call home. That’s why, on Independence Day, I celebrate my country the same way I celebrate my body: by giving it what it craves and needs. 

This yogurt bowl recipe accomplishes just that. I’ve fallen in love with this unique cashew yogurt from Forager Project, a dairy-free yogurt made from organic, ethically-sourced and sustainably farmed cashews that include healthy cultures to promote the replenishment of crucial gut bacteria. It’s creamy, yummy, and an excellent source of protein and essential vitamins and minerals. To that, I add a fresh assortment of my favorite summer berries such as strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries for both flavor and antioxidants. Then, I throw in some coconut flakes and garnish with a heavy drizzle of Berry Bee Honey, the perfect sweetener for a colorful, tasty finish. It’s got all the red, white, and blue you need to feel like a true patriot this 4th of July. 

I recently tried this recipe with a Cacao Magic Cupcake on the side and could not believe what was going on with my taste buds...SO GOOD! Try it yourself and feel the fireworks in your belly with every scrumptious bite. 

Gather This:

1 cup Forager Project organic dairy-free cashewgurt

A drizzle of Berry Bee Honey

¼ cup assorted berries 

1 tbsp coconut flakes

Cacao Magic Cupcake (optional)

Do This:
Add the yogurt to a small bowl and top with berries and coconut flakes. Scoop desired amount of honey into a microwaveable glass and zap just long enough to liquefy about 15 seconds. Drizzle honey over a bowl and enjoy!

Summer Veggie Plate Recipe

We like to think we have perfected the art of eating the rainbow. Want in on the secret? Lots of fruits and veggies, of course! This summer veggies plate is a great addition to a family barbeque or picnic in the park. Veggies can be a tasty treat if you buy fresh and organic then top them with delicious superfoods & seasonings.

A beautiful veggie plate like this one is such a great way to entertain and appeal to lots of different taste buds at any social gathering or family dinner. We started with a base of spiralized butternut squash for an enhanced flavor profile and added peppadew peppers, olives, and almonds. Peppadew peppers are beautiful South African peppers that little like tomatoes and have a sweet, slightly spicy taste. 

We topped everything with our powerhouse seasoner Green Dream Savory Blend which includes the detoxifying and nutritional properties of Green Dream with nutritional yeast for a cheesy flavor and sea salt. Topped with pesto and you’re ready to dig in!

Gather This:

Spiralized butternut squash (or make your own using a spiralizer!)

1 cup peppadew peppers

1 tbsp pesto

1 cup olives

1 cup truffle macadamia almonds

1 tsp Green Dream Savory Blend

1 tsp pepper

Do This:

Roast the peppers in the oven at 350° for 8 minutes with EVOO and Green Dream Savory. While those are roasting, spiralize your butternut squash with a spiralizer then toss with Green Dream Savory Blend and pepper. Layer your spiralized squash onto a plate, then add olives, almonds and your roasted peppers. Top everything with a spoonful of pesto and enjoy!

Peaches are high in fiber, minerals and antioxidants which helps to aid digestion and prevent aging. We added our Berry Bliss Superfood + Protein Blend and a drizzle of Berry Bee Honey for a boost of Vitamin C and some organic berries to round out the flavor. The perfect summer treat that tastes as good as candy! 

These make beautiful appetizers for the whole family at brunch or a backyard BBQ. Or enjoy them as a midday work break snack!

Gather This: 

Fresh, organic peaches (sliced)

1 cup dairy-free yogurt (we love Kite Hill)

1 tbsp Berry Bliss Superfood + Protein Blend

A handful of raspberries, boysenberries and blueberries

Cut your peaches into round slices (peach count depends on how many people you’re serving or whether this is for yourself!). In a small bowl, mix the yogurt and Berry Bliss powder until well combined. On each peach slice, spread a spoonful of yogurt then top with berries, coconut shreds. Finish with a drizzle of Berry Bee Honey and enjoy!

No-Bake Coconut Lemon Bars Recipe

We can’t get enough citrus in the summer. Citrus flavors are refreshing and versatile - a little citrus is welcome in pretty much any recipe because of the brightness it adds. Everyone here at Philosophie has a HUGE sweet tooth, so desserts are our favorite foods to make with citrus flavors. The acidity of citrus cuts through rich sweets and keeps them from making you feel sluggish and bloated, so you can enjoy them while soaking up the sun and staying active.

These lemon bars are a great example. They’re completely raw- no oven or baking sheets required - and jam-packed with superfood nutrients, including omega-3’s, iron, camu camu + mangosteen. The date/nut base is complemented by a Berry Bee coconut cream topping, with a little lemon zest to temper the richness. The recipe calls for macadamia nuts and walnuts, but you can play around with the flavors and substitute pistachios, pecans, cashews, or even Brazil nuts. Don’t feel tied to lemons either - like we said, summer is the season for all citrus! Try these out with blood oranges, mandarins, grapefruit, or kumquats if you’d like. Make a batch before a hike, beach picnic, or any other fun summer activity.

Gather This:


½ cup pitted dates

¼ cup raw macadamia nuts

¼ cup raw walnuts

1 tbsp lemon zest

1 tbsp Berry Bliss Superfood + Protein Blend

1 tsp coconut oil, melted

A pinch of sea salt


1 cup coconut cream

1 tbsp Berry Bee Honey

1-2 tsp lemon zest

juice of ½ lemon

Do This:

  1. For the base: blitz all ingredients in a food processor or blender, then form into a square on some parchment paper. Place in the fridge to cool.
  2. For the whipped topping: add all ingredients to food processor or blender, and pulse until combined. Season to taste, and add more zest or honey if you’d like. Place in the fridge to cool.
  3. Once your bars and coconut cream have chilled and set, remove from the fridge. Add as much whipped topping as you’d like, and garnish with lemon zest, edible flowers, bee pollen or maybe some coconut flakes!

Enjoy immediately or store in the fridge for up to a week!
