Vegan Green Dream Goddess Salad Dressing

I've been trying to experiment with my superfood powders and thinking outside the box (or outside the blender, so to speak).

You can add the superfood mixes to just about anything if you just play with the quantities and don't add too much in the beginning. This is the first salad dressing I made while incorporating Green Dream superfood powders. I'm pretty impressed at the flavor and taste! Give it a try and comment below!

  • 1 large ripe avocado, halved, pitted, peeled, cut into chunks
  • 1 tablespoon finely grated lemon zest
  • Juice of 1 small lemon
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh basil
  • 2 green onions, sliced (green and white parts)
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tablespoon tamari
  • 1/2 cup vegan mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup vegan sour cream
  • Pinch of cayenne
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Drizzle over a salad, use as a dip, or slather this dressing on sandwiches.

Ingredients:

Directions:

Place all ingredients in a blender (or food processor) and puree.

Serve immediately or transfer to an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.

Makes about 2 cups.

Berry Bliss Ice Cream Recipe

One of my joys in life is making my own versions of treats that most people would buy at their local market, and ice cream is no exception. Homemade ice cream is super easy to make, especially when you’ve got an ice cream machine that does most of the work for you. The best part of making homemade ice cream is the variety of ingredients that can make it healthier and more delicious than what you buy at the store. 


I especially love adding our superfood blends and any one of them can be used depending on what you feel you need or are in the mood for! It’s all about your intuition. Lately I’ve been obsessed with this Berry Bliss version that I’ve perfected over the years, especially during the summer season when all my body is craving is fruits and ingredients filled with vitamin C. The tart natural flavors of goji berry, pomegranate, and acai within Berry Bliss complement syrupy-sweet strawberries and fragrant rosewater so perfectly. It’s a simple recipe that takes less than an hour to make with an ice cream maker. If you don’t have one, there are plenty of no-churn ice cream methods online - or, you can pour the base into a popsicle mold and enjoy this treat on a stick. This method is especially great for kiddos!

Gather This: 

1 tsp rose water

1/2 can full-fat coconut milk

1 tbsp Berry Bliss Superfood + Protein Powder 

1 tbsp Berry Bee Honey 

1/2 cup frozen strawberries


Do This: 

In a high powered blender, mix all ingredients until pureed with no lumps remaining. Add to a chilled ice cream maker or popsicle mold. If using an ice cream maker, the mixture should be ready in about 20 minutes. Popsicles may take anywhere from 2-4 hours to solidify, depending on the temperature of your freezer. Garnish with your favorite berries, rose petals, or a small mint leaf.

Breakfast Fried Rice Recipe

There’s a stigma around breakfast that you need to eat light, eat small and eat simple. Well, that’s NOT for everyone and there are some days where you wake up with a serious hunger and you want all the savory goodness you could imagine. Veggie fried rice with a quality protein like fried egg or tempeh and a bit of greens is absolutely perfect. 


When you think of breakfast, you normally don’t think of fried rice but it has all the components of a satisfying and nutrient-dense meal. You can make it a lighter, healthier dish by using cauliflower rice and sesame oil. The best thing about using cauliflower rice is how fast it cooks making it a reliant breakfast meal when you don’t have a lot of time to spare. Take this dish to the next level by adding a seasoning that lights up your tastebuds and balances out your dish like the Green Dream Savory Blend which uses our detoxifying and energy-boosting Green Dream Superfood + Protein Blend


This breakfast fried rice is packed with veggies, delicious greens, seasoned just right and topped with satisfyingly cooked eggs.

Gather This:

2 eggs

8 oz riced cauliflower

½ cup mixed veggies

1 tsp Green Dream Savory Blend 

1 cup arugula

1 tbsp sesame oil

1 tsp Green Dream Superfood + Protein Blend


Do This:

Roast your mixed veggies (frozen or fresh) and set aside.

Add sesame oil to a pan and turn to medium heat, add in your riced cauliflower. Stir to fully coat cauliflower rice with the other veggies and bacon. Cook, stirring occasionally for 45-60 seconds or until softened.

Lower the heat to low and create 2 grooves for the eggs. Add a bit of oil to each groove and crack an egg in each one. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and Green Dream Savory Blend, then cover the skillet and cook about 2 minutes, or until eggs are cooked to preference. 

Remove from heat and add top with arugula and Green Dream Superfood + Protein Blend. Enjoy!

Kelp Seaweed Salad Recipe

I love getting my fill of greens in creative and exciting ways. Feeling the fire and playful energy this Leo season and taking it to the kitchen! You don’t have to travel across the ocean or spend a ton of money to feel that spirit of adventure and childlike nature, it can happen right in your home. Experiment with flavors and food sensations and make something you’ve never made before. This is how your intuition is built. It’s the second you get out of your head and into your body when you let your senses do the talking and your gut reactions take over. 


One way to switch up your green routine? Seaweed. This ocean-grown veggie is super rich in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. There are different type from red algae, the kind in sushi, to blue-green algae or spirulina. I LOVE spirulina and use it in ALL our Green Dream Superfood + Protein Blend products. Most people are used to seeing the nori sheets wrapped around sushi or in or snack aisle, but you can also use dried seaweed which looks like seaweed noodles and tastes super yummy!


Other seaweed benefits include:

  • Pulls toxins from the body
  • Antioxidant, antifungal and anti-inflammatory
  • Said to help regulate estrogen

Enjoy this super simple and delicious kelp seaweed salad to get you started!

Gather This:

1 oz dried kelp seaweed

½ avocado (sliced)

½ cup multi-tomatoes (cut in half)

2 tbsp sesame seeds (toasted)

2 tbsp rice vinegar

1 tsp Green Dream Savory Blend

Dried lemon (for garnish)

Handful of olives


Do This:

Place seaweed in a bowl, cover with cold water by a few inches and soak until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain and transfer to a large bowl. 

Add avocado, tomatoes, sesame seeds, vinegar and Green Dream Savory Blend and toss well to combine. 

Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate for up to 1 day. Serve chilled or at room temperature with a handful of olives and dried lemon. ENJOY!

Blue Majik Yogurt Bowl

Cancer season may be over, but summer is still in full swing! The bright sun in the sky calls for bright colors in our food, which is why we love adding Blue Majik to our recipes. Blue Majik is a type of spirulina that includes a protein called C-phycocyanin, which has been shown to contain tons of antioxidants and help fight inflammation. It also gives everything it touches a gorgeous blue tint that shines bright in the sunlight. Perfect for someone like me, who loves eating as many colors as possible. 


Like traditional spirulina powder, Blue Majik has somewhat of a “green” taste, so it pairs well with strongly sweet and tart flavors like blueberry, pomegranate, and acai. This yogurt bowl - made with Forage Project's amazing dairy-free cashewgurt - welcomes Blue Majik by incorporating it into all of our favorite add-ins. Berry Bliss Superfood + Protein Blend and Blue Majik are stirred into the yogurt base, then topped with bee pollen, coconut flakes, and your favorite assortment of berries or seeds. 


If you can’t get your hands on Blue Majik, you can still make this yummy yogurt bowl with regular spirulina. Add a little blue food coloring to the yogurt base and stir for that electric blue hue - the end product will be just as healthy and look just as good!  

Gather This:

1 cup Forager Project's dairy-free cashewgurt

1 tbsp Berry Bliss Superfood + Protein Blend

1 tbsp Bee pollen

1 tbsp Coconut shreds

¼ cup Assorted berries (Blackberries and Blueberries work best) 

½ tsp Blue Majik Powder 


Do This:

In your favorite bowl, stir the cashewgurt, Berry Bliss, and Blue Majik together until the whole thing has a swirling, blue color. Top with bee pollen, coconut shreds, and berries. Enjoy!
