Green Dream Açai Smoothie

I was craving a big bowl of greens in smoothie form, but we were fresh out of greens!! What’s a girl to do? Between the açai, the matcha, and the Green Dream...I think we had our bases covered! It may sound like a weird combo, but that’s usually when the magic happens! It was the perfect post workout treat!


You know that saying, “Abs are made in the kitchen?” Well, it’s really true. You can work out all day every day, but if you eat like crap, you aren’t going to see results. Simple as that!! People ask me all the time if I work out like a maniac...The truth is that I don’t. I consider myself lucky if I can realistically get a good workout in 4-5 times a week. Honestly, that’s plenty. I’m a very active person, I walk whenever I can, and chasing after my little ones definitely keeps me in shape. The one thing that I consistently do and can attribute to helping me achieve my fitness goals is superfoods! Incorporating greens and superfoods whenever I can, even when I can’t get a workout in, is really what keeps me looking and feeling amazing!

Gather This:

Do This:

  1. Blend all of the ingredients in a high speed blender
  2. Add the smoothie mixture to a bowl and top with your favorite goodies!

Smoothies are the easiest way to facilitate nutrients to their little bodies. All 3 of my kiddos have grown up on smoothies and LOVE them.

Naturally-Energizing Honey Matcha Latte

What a wild year this one has been and so heavy. Lately, I’ve found myself in flight or fight response and my nervous system is shot since COVID, quarantine, BLM, and our world being in a state of collapse. My sleep is off, my anxiety is high and I’m not here for it.


Intuitively, I knew it was time for a break on many levels and this week have decided to slow down, sleep more and take a break from caffeine. I usually start my day with a delicious cup of superfood coffee full of plant-based protein and good, healthy fats but last week I was starting to feel anxious and nauseous after only one cup. My superfood coffee is so good for the body, I knew this was a response to my high stress + anxiety so it was time for a break.


I’m sharing a naturally-energizing honey matcha latte made with our Green Dream Superfood + Protein Blend and Green Bee Honey! So far I feel amazing and my adrenals are getting the break they need to reset. This matcha latte is perfect for mornings and can be easily adapted into a nourishing boost when you add coconut butter, nut butter or soaked nuts. 


Listen to your body! It knows best what it needs for healing.

Gather This:

6-8 oz dairy-free milk

1 tsp matcha powder

1 tsp Green Dream Superfood + Protein Blend 

1 tsp Green Bee Manuka Honey

1 tsp ashwagandha powder

1-2 tbsp coconut butter or almond butter or a handful of soaked nuts (optional) 


Do This:

Blend 'til frothy! To make into a meal replacement, add the coconut butter/almond butter/handful of soaked nuts.

Hydrating + Energizing Gummy Snacks

We LOVE summertime over here and as a true California company, we can’t get enough of the sunshine. Days spent outside means more hydration! Philosophie Babe, Monette Moio of Glazed and Confused (@glazedandconfused.co) whipped up these super simple and tasty hydrating gummies using our newest beauty, Hydrating Dream!


With three kiddos it can be a challenge to get them to drink more water and now that they’re constantly in and out of the pool it’s even more important that I keep their little bodies hydrated. Finding fun and delicious ways to hydrate is a summertime tradition. These gummy snacks are so much better than the common gummy bears and taste SO good! Totally kid-friendly and mamas will love them too.


These little tasty treats are made with coconut water (great for electrolytes), Green Bee Honey (a natural immune-boosting sweetener) and the star - Hydrating Dream (our newest babe full of electrolytes and protein-rich superfoods). Grab a fun ice mold with different shapes and you’re good to go! 


Try these babies out with a huge glass of Liquid Sunshine! Your body will thank you.

Gather This:

1 cup Coconut Water (or coconut milk! Any flavored liquid works)

1 packet Hydrating Dream

2 tbsp Green Bee Honey

3 Scoops Vital Proteins Beef Gelatin


Do This:

In a medium saucepan, heat coconut water over medium heat until hot- not boiling! 

Turn heat to low and add Hydrating Dream while whisking, then add Beef Gelatin while whisking to ensure no lumps form.

Remove from heat and add Green Bee Honey. Mix until combined.

Pour mixture into silicone molds or a 8x8 baking dish if you don’t have them. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours.

Notes:

*If you have tiny lumps from the gelatin, don’t worry about it. It’ll still work! Also, the Hydrating Dream mixture has chia seeds in it so it could be that.

*Can be stored at room temp.

*You can sub any juice/liquid to this recipe

*Honey can be subbed for any sweetener
