Check out the Philosophie Babe recipe below using our fav Cacao Magic Superfood + Protein Blend.
It's official: summer is here and has brought a heat wave to prove it. And when it comes to summer heat there's really only one way to respond: healthy frozen treats, and lots of them. We're talking smoothies, smoothie bowls, slushies, popsicles, iced matcha lattes, and yep, fudgesicles.
Traditionally speaking, fudgesicles aren't known for being nutrient loaded and good for you. But these aren't your average fudgesicles. We took Philosophie Superfoods', well, philosophy to heart and transformed this yummy summertime favorite into an actual superfood with a carefully curated list of plant-based ingredients that will both nourish your body and your inner child.
A base of coconut cream and almond milk provide that ultra creamy texture as well as plenty of nourishing fats for glowing skin, while raw cacao delivers a hefty boost of flavonols for some much-needed antioxidant protection. We used primarily dates to sweeten as a whole food alternative to more refined options and to give the recipe more dietary fiber for stable blood sugar. Gooey dates also make the texture a bit denser – we wanted these to be nice and fudgy. By using Cacao Magic these pops are also infused with a wealth of immune-boosting and vitality-enhancing superfoods like reishi, maca, and chia seeds, not to mention a generous amount of hemp protein. Speaking of hemp...it's amazing protein content is just one of a number of incredible health benefits. By adding a few servings of our Organic Hemp Oil with Hemp Extract we've infused the anti-inflammatory, mood-boosting, and nerve-supporting benefits of broad spectrum CBD (cannabidiol) so you can keep things calm and cool all summer long.
