Simple & Sweet Overnight Oats Layered With Berry Smoothie Recipe

Oats are a breakfast go-to because there’s so much flexibility available. You can make them sweet or savory and light or filling. Oats are also super cleansing and full of fiber to keep you full longer! As a bonus, they are a time saver in the mornings. Let’s be honest, most mornings you just don’t have time to make yourself breakfast especially when you have 3 hungry kiddos to feed. I just don’t have the time or patience to sit by the stoke and make the oatmeal most morning. So what do I do? Overnight oats all the way!!


This is the perfect end-of-summer recipe to slowly transition your body into more fall seasonal recipes which officially starts next Monday with the Autumn Equinox! We’re hosting a group fall reset so make sure you purchase either a 5-day, 10-day, or 14-day program to join in! This recipe is cleanse-friendly and super healing for the body! I used a Berry Bliss overnight oats recipe and added a layer of my go-to Berry Bliss smoothie recipe on top and that’s it! So simple. So tasty. So satisfying.


Gather This:

FOR THE OVERNIGHT OATS

½ cup oats

1 cup unsweetened almond milk

1 tbsp chia seeds

1 tbsp shredded coconuts

1 tsp Berry Bliss Superfood + Protein Blend

1 tsp cinnamon

FOR THE BERRY SMOOTHIE

1 packet Pitaya Plus smoothie packet

4 oz. coconut milk

1 tbsp Berry Bliss Superfood + Protein Blend

1 frozen banana

½ cup fresh or frozen fruit of your choice (I love adding something tropical like pineapple)

1 tbsp cashew butter


Do This:

The night before, combine all the overnight oats ingredients in a mason jar. Screw on the lide and store it in your fridge for the night. In the morning, combine all your smoothie ingredients in a blender and blend until smoothie then layer it on top of your oats mixture. Add an extra tbsp of Berry Bliss Superfood + Protein Blend then top with Berry Bee Honey or sweetener of choice. Eat on-the-go and enjoy!

Berry Bliss Coconut Cake Recipe

Cake for dinner? Sure, why not! If it’s plant-based, dairy-free and loaded with superfoods it’s not a bad choice. Plus, enjoying fruits or honey before dinner actually helps with digestion as more savory foods need acid for digestion found if most fruit! This beautiful Berry Bliss Coconut Cake is a great place to start!


We used strawberries for this one because that’s what the Jaffe kids love the most, but you can easily substitute for raspberries, blueberries, or maybe even peaches. You’ll be surprised by how tasty and sweet this cake comes ou!. This dish comes out super sweet because we used dates and Berry Bee Honey (bonus points for the vitamin C boost!) and it’s cheesecake-like richness comes directly from the cashews. You can make any sweet treat healthy with just a few substitutions!


So excited for you to try it and stock up on all Berry Bliss products while you can! These are extra handy to keep around the house (especially Berry Bee Honey) ahead of cold + flu season!

Gather This:

FOR THE FILLING

2 C cashews

1 C frozen strawberries

1 T Berry Bliss Superfood + Protein Blend

2 T Berry Bee Honey

2 T coconut oil

FOR THE CRUST

2 C walnuts

1 C pitted dates

2 T shredded coconut

1 tbsp Berry Bliss Superfood + Protein Blend

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/4 t sea salt


Do This:

Soak the cashews overnight (or for a minimum of two hours). Simply put them in a glass or bowl covered with water, and drain them before using.

Start with the crust. Add all of the ingredients to a food processor. Pulse until the mixture is fully incorporated. If it’s really difficult to blend, and small amounts of warm water (up to a tablespoon).

Add the mixture to the bottom of a small springform baking pan

You have to freeze each layer before assembly. Place the pan into the freezer while you work on the filling.

Add all of the ingredients of the filling to the food processor the same way you did with the crust.

Take the pan out of the freezer and add the layer of filling

Take a knife and scrape across the top to make sure the top of the cake has a flat surface

Put the pan back in the freezer. When you are ready to serve, take the cake out of the springform pan while it is still very frozen, and then let it thaw a bit once you take it out of the pan.

Berry Bliss Beet Hummus Toast Recipe

We use the beautiful properties of roast beets to turn this toast into a magical #ToastTuesday creation. When roast beets are whipped up in a food processor with lemon juice, garlic, garbanzo beans, and Berry Bliss, they create a divine hummus that's high in immune-boosting vitamin C, potassium, manganese, and fiber. Spreading a bit of this hummus on gluten-free toast and adding radishes - you have an amazing little savory treat!


It’s no secret that I love beets - they’re definitely one of my favorite fall veggies. They are packed with nutrients and have a rich, earthy flavor that is so satisfying. There are so many ways to enjoy beets, from raw and sliced to roasted whole, but one of my family’s favorite ways to have them is beet hummus. When roasted, beets become subtly sweet and tender, making them an excellent choice for hummus recipes.

Green Dream Matcha Latte With Adaptogens Recipe

As most of you know, my favorite way to energize in the afternoons is a beautiful high-vibe matcha latte. I love adding Green Dream Superfood + Protein Blend to these drinks and some of my favorite adaptogens and superfoods to not only give me the perfect mid-day pick up but also give me nutrients that keeping me feeling vibrant throughout the rest of the day. 


Matcha is a beautiful powdered green tea with a ton of antioxidants and nutritional properties. It’s been around for hundreds of years and is extremely healing and detoxifying. In one cup of matcha, you’re drinking about three times the antioxidants of regular green tea. Matcha also supports healthy brain health and boosts your metabolism, making this drink a Philosophie cleanse-friendly recipe. I also added my favorite Four Sigmatic Mushroom Focus Shot elixir to this latte which is one of their new energizing blends and promotes focus and energy.
