Coconut Butter Easter Bunnies Recipe

Coconut Butter Easter Bunnies Recipe

These coconut butter pastel bunnies are the perfect treat for an Easter egg hunt! They're chock-full of healthy fats, magnesium, potassium, vitamin C, and iron AND super yummy. Try making them with Berry Bliss and Green Dream Coconut Butter or popping them out in other spring or Easter-themed shapes--I would love to see some coconut butter eggs and tulips! 

 

Gather This:


Do This:

Create a double boiler by placing a heat proof bowl over a pot of simmering water. Make sure that the base of the bowl does not touch the water. Add 2 cups of Berry Bliss Coconut Butter to the bowl along with 4 tablespoons of the coconut oil. (Note: If your coconut butter is too firm to scoop out 1 cup easily, simply set it in a shallow pot of warm, but not boiling water for several minutes, or until soft enough to scoop.)

Stir the Berry Bliss Coconut Butter and coconut oil constantly as they melt until they are well combined. Once combined, pour into bunny molds or your favorite easter-themed silicone mold. 

Refrigerate for about an hour or until hardened and then remove your coconut butter melts from the molds. Store in refrigerator until serving.

Omg those look delicious! I’m new to your blog and products; I’m a recovering ED and am so happy to find someone with your health style (I’m not sure how else to put it?) is there a way you could send a coconut butter sample before I buy one? I hate being flaky, but it wouldn’t hurt to ask. Anyway, THANK YOU for being an inspiration!

Savory Green Dream Trail Mix Recipe

I can’t get enough trail mix in a single day. When I’m out in the world - hiking, walking, or just getting from one activity to the other - trail mix is one of my favorite sources of fuel. The problem with most trail mixes, however, is the excessive sugar and unhealthy fat that comes with them. These make the mix yummy while you’re eating it but lead to a hard crash and low energy soon after you eat them. There are two ways to beat that problem - by making trail mix at home, and by going against the grain with a trail mix that’s savory rather than sweet. That’s right - I think trail mix shouldn’t need M&Ms, caramel chips, or sugary, processed fruit chunks to be desirable as a snack.


In fact, this savory trail mix beats just about every sweet, store-bought version I’ve ever had. My boys need lots of vitamins and minerals to keep their growing, active bodies full of energy, and they love the savory alternative this recipe provides. It’s got everything you love in a traditional trail mix, like almonds, cashews, and walnuts. These nuts are great sources of healthy protein and fat, with the benefit of being really filling. I also included pumpkin seeds, which are probably the most nutrient-rich seed you can eat.


One key ingredient of this recipe is dried golden berries. These may look like cranberries or raisins, but they’re actually similar to a tomatillo or cherry tomato with a sort of tropical sweetness, like mango or pineapple. Not only do they give this mix a tangy twist, but they’re also full of fiber, Vitamin C, and Thiamine, among a whole bunch of other essential nutrients and minerals.


All you need to do to make this trail mix is follow the recipe in the name. Gather the ingredients mentioned and mix them well in a bowl. Once all the ingredients have gotten to know each other, introduce them to our Green Dream Savory seasoning for a superfood burst that ties all the flavors together. Then, once you’ve got the mix, find yourself a trail and get snacking!

Gather This:

½ cup almonds

¼ cup pumpkin seeds

¼ cup walnuts

¼ cup cashews

2 tbsp coconut shreds

2 tbsp Goldenberries

1 tbsp Green Dream Savory Seasoning

 

Do This:

Mix all ingredients in a bowl and combine well. Top final mixture with additional coconut shreds, golden berries, and Green Dream Savory Seasoning, to taste.

Baked Avocado Egg Recipe

I love a good breakfast, but when you’ve got several mouths to feed – including your own – cooking it can feel like a total chore. Because of this, I need a solid go-to breakfast option that doesn’t disrupt my important morning ritual and gives my body all of the nutrition it needs to get through my day. That’s why I love this simple recipe that meets all of my body’s needs, tastes great, and takes no time at all to prepare.

 

Baked Avocado Eggs are a staple of Paleo cooking that provides everything you need in a breakfast. All you do is slice an avocado lengthwise, remove the pit, and crack and egg in the cavity of each slice before throwing it in the oven. That’s it!

 

Both avocados and eggs have plenty of healthy fat to fill you up in the morning, and eggs are an excellent source of protein, the nutrient you need most after a night of rest. For an extra protein boost, I love sprinkling my avocado egg with Green Dream Savory Seasoning, which includes nutritional yeast and Green Dream Superfood + Protein Blend. Nutritional yeast is a fantastic and delicious source of natural protein, B vitamins, and crucial trace minerals like zinc and manganese, which is why I included it in the Savory Seasoning.

 

I also toss a few hemp seeds on the avocado when it comes of the oven. Hemp seeds are another awesome source of protein and healthy fats, with the extra benefits of minerals like potassium, iron, zinc, and calcium. They add a really nice nutty flavor to the avocado egg and have this chewy texture similar to chia or flax seeds.

 

Prepping this for the oven can take less than 1 minute and only needs about 15-20 minutes in the oven, depending on how you like the texture of your egg. That’s a perfect amount of time to do a short workout, meditate, put on your make up, or get your kiddos ready for school. Try it out for yourself and feel free to experiment with your favorite toppings!

Gather This:

2 medium eggs

1 ripe avocado

½ tsp Green Dream Savory Seasoning

Hemp seeds


Do This:

Preheat your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Slice avocado lengthwise and remove pit. Scoop out about 1 tbsp of avocado to create more room for the egg. Place avocado on a baking sheet flesh-side up (if the avocado tilts sideways, make a little stand out of aluminum foil to prop it up). Crack one egg into the cavity of each avocado half. Bake for 15-20 minutes. Remove from oven and season with Green Dream Savory Seasoning and hemp seeds. Let cool and enjoy!

Green Dream Pear Matcha Latte Recipe

After a long weekend, an energizing and detoxifying smoothie is an absolute must. We celebrated baby Noa almost turning ONE!

We had friends and family over who have stood by us for this whole journey for a little house party with lots of yummy food, a magical unicorn cake and even an alpaca!


Easing back into my work after the celebrations of this weekend means soft + gentle mornings and lots of nourishing foods and drinks like this Green Dream Pear Matcha Latte. I love energizing with this vibrant green matcha latte! Matcha provides a boost of energy without leading to the usual caffeine crash that accompanies coffee. This beautiful powder is also incredibly healing and is chockfull of catchechins, which aid in counteracting the harmful effects of free radicals.

1 handful spinach

1 tbsp Green Dream Superfood + Protein Blend

Superfood Bagel Brunch Recipe

I love a good brunch with my sisters and family - slow, soft morning and all the delicious foods you could get. The best brunches are warm, savory and satisfying. Nothing makes me more filled up than cooking up a delicious brunch with my kiddos.


Good foods are made so much easier now especially when we use the Green Dream Savory Blend, which has all you want in a seasoning. The nutritional yeast is an excellent source of B vitamins, fiber, and important minerals like zinc. It's also gluten-free, dairy-free, and extremely low-fat. Mixed with the variety of protein-rich ingredients in Green Dream Superfood + Protein Blend (plus a little bit of sea salt), it's the perfect seasoning for a tasty brunch treat like these tasty gluten-free bagel creations. This avocado bagel recipe is easy and delicious, especially when seasoned with Green Dream. Try it out (bonus points for enjoying yours with a gorgeous avocado flower like the one in the picture!).


Gather This:

1 bagel, cut in half (we LOVE Canyon GF Everything Bagel)

1 avocado (½ smashed, ½ sliced)

1 fried egg

1 tbsp Green Dream Savory Blend

1 tsp hemp seed


Do This:

Cut the bagel in half and toast for about 3-4 minutes, depending on how toasty you like it.

Fry the egg in avocado oil over-medium (just enough for the yolk to run a bit, but not enough to spill over).  

Slice ½ of the avocado into a flower (or, if you aren't feeling fancy, any way you prefer).

Top one half of the bagel with the sliced avocado. Smash the remaining avocado to top the other half of the bagel and top it with the fried egg.  

Sprinkle Green Dream Savory Blend and hemp seed over both bagel halves and enjoy!
