Halloween Berry Bliss Teething Cookies!

The other Philosophie mama writing to you today! I might be chiming in here and there so I should probably introduce myself...that way when you see pictures below of a child you have never seen before you won't go assuming that Sophie started taking pictures of random children in the park!!! That young one below is my son Levi, and he just turned one in September. I am Kelsey, his proud mama (most of the time!) and I am another Philosophie mama!!  

 

For all you mommies out there who need some help when your little one is teething these really helped my son. And, I made them fun for Halloween too! I actually made them just out of curiosity to see what they would turn out like, not entirely because I thought my son was teething. But BOY oh BOY did my baby boy need these today...

 

 Like REALLY REALLY needed them...

 

 

The teething cookies are really easy to make and with the added Berry Bliss superfood powder you are giving your kids a healthy, nutritious snack, too!! And you can have your kids help in making them into all sorts of fun shapes. Store them in an airtight container and you can have plenty for all those teething moments that come your way!
How fun would these be for Christmas?!! 

Berry Bliss Teething Cookies 

1 cup flour (I used half whole wheat and half coconut flour)

1 cup infant cereal 

3 tablespoon oil (I used Garden of Life coconut)

1 tsp cinnamon

ice water 

1 T Berry Bliss superfood blend

 

Heat oven to 425 degrees. 

Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl until it forms into a ball. Start with 1/4 cup ice water and add more as needed. Keep adding more ice water until it forms a dough.

On a floured surface roll out the dough very thin and use a cookie cutter to shape into anything you'd like. 

Bake for 10-15 minutes until golden brown.

 

 

 

 

Look at our poor dog begging in the corner...I guess a good thing is if your children don't like them they can double as dog treats! :) But I promise your kids will like them!!

 

Do you have any good tricks or strategies when your little ones are teething? Please share!

Berry Bliss Peach Slices Recipe

Elevate your snacks with these beautiful summer peach slices topped with Berry Bliss yogurt! The beginning of summer is marked by the plethora of summer fruits + veggies that pop up at your local markets. A Philosophie team favorite is a delicious fresh peach. 


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

1 tbsp coconut shreds

1 tbsp Berry Bee Honey


Do This:

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:

FOR THE BASE

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

FOR THE TOPPING

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!

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!
