Green Pesto and Radish Salad

For those times when your body is craving a HUGE bowl of greens with vibrant veggies elevate it by drizzling on your own homemade salad dressing made with superfoods. You have the power to up-level any meal when you infuse it with high vibrational fruits/veggies and nutrient-dense superfoods. 


You can add superfood blends to just about anything. We would suggest to play with the quantities and don't add too much in the beginning. For this yummy radish and purple lettuce salad, we used our FAVORITE Green Dream pesto to make this protein-packed, nutrient-dense lunch!

Persimmon Pumpkin Bread

Fall is here and we are LOVING making all our favorite fall recipes. Have you tried persimmon? They make an incredible addition to pies, smoothies, breads, taste great raw and so good added into a nice cream with Cacao Magic and Fall Vibes!


Persimmons have incredibly high fiber contents which means that they promote a healthy digestive tract and will keep you feeling full longer. The bright red-orange color of the persimmon is due to high levels of disease-fighting phytonutrients and nourishing antioxidants like vitamins A, C, and K, all of which prevent cellular damage and reduce the signs of aging. Persimmons are also a good source of betulinic acid, a compound that has been shown to have anti-tumor properties!


We’re loving this jack-o-lantern shaped persimmon pumpkin bread created by the insanely talented Danielle of @cacaoforcoconuts_ using our seasonal Fall Vibes. Enjoy this delicious fall treat!

Gather This:

2 cups quick oats blended to flour⁣

⅓ cup carob powder (or cocoa)⁣

2 ripe bananas⁣

⅓ cup pumpkin purée ⁣

1 tsp Fall Vibes

1 tsp baking soda⁣


Do This:

Combine everything in a food processor.⁣
Preheat oven to 350°F.⁣
Spray or line a dish with parchment paper!⁣
Top with persimmons (make them little pumpkins)⁣
Bake for 23-25 minutes until bread is firm!⁣

Apple Pie Autumn Superfood Smoothie

Fall Smoothie

It’s apple season! We have a super easy apple pie autumn smoothie for you that feels and tastes like fall. We added our seasonal superfood blend, Fall Vibes for this dreamy smoothie, which instantly transformed this smoothie into an autumn treat full of grounding adaptogens and healing superfoods. We love the California fall feeling this smoothie creates, don't you agree? 


While apples may be one of the most commonplace fruits to be found in the grocery store, they still have tons of extraordinary health benefits! Apples are an excellent source of vitamin C, which can help boost the body’s immune system and ward off illness during the cold season. They are also full of fiber which helps keep you feeling full longer and makes apples an excellent food to keep on hand if you’re trying to maintain a healthy diet.


Enjoy this smoothie in the mornings before you start your day or as an afternoon snack! We can’t wait to hear what you think!

Gather This:

2 apples (cut for easy blending)

1 cup unsweetened almond milk

½ cup greek plain yogurt or dairy-free yogurt

½ frozen banana

1-2 tbsp Fall Vibes


Do This:

Throw all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth and to your desired consistency.

Taste and add some Cacao Bee Honey if you want to sweeten.

Pour into tall glasses, sprinkle with some cinnamon, and enjoy!

Superfood Coffee Recipe Round Up

In the Jaffe home, we can’t start our day without superfood coffee. We’ve been adding the Philosophie Cacao Magic Superfood Blend to coffee for years now with our Coconut Magic Coconut Butter and coffee for a balanced energized hit. 


There’s NO crash which I really appreciate and it brings me joy and sanity when I’m feeling off-balance. You can easily adapt it to whatever you need for the day, add extra mood boosters, or keep it simple with just superfoods and coffee. If you’re looking for a high-vibe, uplifting boost without the crash, this does the trick! 


Check out these 5 superfood coffee recipes to jumpstart your day in the best way!



Daily Go-To Superfood Coffee with the Superfood Coffee Bundle

I can't survive a morning if I don’t get my morning boost and my go-to is this amazing superfood coffee. It has all I need to wake me up and fuel my body for the day - it's basically self-care in a cup.

Gather This:

1 cup high-quality coffee (I love cold-brew or brewed)

1 cup homemade cashew mylk (recipe here)

A serving each from the Superfood Coffee Bundle (subscribe + save, AND never miss a day!)

Optional: 1 scoop collagen of choice

Do This:

Add all ingredients into a blender and blend! Pour into a mug and enjoy!



Cold Brew Coffee Recipe

If you’re looking to switch it up this cold brew recipe uses our Coconut Magic Coconut Butter to help slow down the absorption of caffeine so it doesn’t make you feel anxious or jittery like coffee alone.

Gather This:

1 cup of cold brew of choice

¼ cup coconut creamer or full fat coconut canned organic milk

1 tsp Cacao Magic Superfood Blend, Cacao Bee Honey and 1 tbsp Cacao Magic Coconut Butter (buy all 3 in our Superfood Coffee Bundle)

1 scoopful of collagen of choice

Do this:

Add all ingredients into a blender and blend! Pour into a mug and think about what you want to create energetically today. What intention do you want to set for the day ahead? What are you grateful for? We have a CHOICE each and every day to see the world and our lives as we want to see them.

 

 

Healing Cacao Cinnamon Date Latte

This version is all-around better for you than a traditional latte you’d buy at your local coffee shop and - in our opinion - tastes better too! The only sweetener used is from Medjool dates, a bit of cinnamon (or our Fall Vibes Superfood Blend for warming spices) and vanilla extract. Not only that, but the scoop of Cacao Magic adds protein, magnesium, and mushroom magic from the reishi.

Gather This:

1 cup unsweetened almond milk

1 tbsp almond or nut butter (we used pecan butter)

1 large Medjool Date (pitted and roughly chopped)

1 tbsp Cacao Magic Superfood Blend

½ tsp ground cinnamon or 1 tsp Fall Vibes Superfood Blend

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

½ - ½ cup of coffee

Do This:

Brew your favorite coffee blend and set aside. In a saucepan, bring all the ingredients (except the coffee) to a low boil.  Remove from heat and place in a high-speed blender. Blend until smooth and creamy. Taste test and adjust flavors as needed. Pour anywhere from ¼ - ½ cup of coffee in your favorite mug and top with the milk blend. ENJOY!

 

 

Magical Cacao Mushroom Coffee Latte

Our go-to superfood coffee recipe kicked up a notch with mushroom coffee, ghee and collagen! We added our Cacao Magic Superfood Blend for a delicious boost of superfood protein and our Cacao Bee Honey for a touch of sweetness and immunity!

Gather This:

1 cups your favorite plant-based milk

1 tsp Cacao Magic Superfood Blend

1 tsp Cacao Bee Honey

1 tbsp Fourth & Heart Ghee (optional but makes it extra creamy; can also sub with coconut butter)

1 packet Four Sigmatic Mushroom Coffee (or 1-2 cups brewed coffee)

1 scoops collagen 

Do This:

Combine all in a blender then heat on the stovetop. Enjoy!

 

 

Cacao Cinnamon Dulce Latte

Cold brew coffee is less acidic than espresso. Secondly, the only sweetener we use is our Cacao Bee Honey. It’s great because not only does it sweeten the drink, but it actually offers nutritional benefits too! Our raw honey strengthens immunity, has antibacterial properties and antioxidants, and aids digestion. Not only that, but the scoop of Cacao Magic adds protein, magnesium, and mushroom magic from the reishi.

Gather This:

1 cup cold brew coffee

1 cup nut milk

1 Tbsp Cacao Magic

2 tsp Cacao Bee Honey

1 tsp Coconut Magic Coconut Butter

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

Do This:

Blend all of the ingredients in a high speed blender for 30 seconds to 1 minute and then pour over ice

For a frappuccino variation, blend the mixture with a cup of ice added to it

Top with coconut flakes, cinnamon, or whatever your heart desires!!
