Memorial Weekend Recipe Roundup

It’s warming up here in LA and while Memorial Week will look different this year that doesn’t mean you can’t have your own private backyard BBQ! 


Memorial Weekend has always meant spending time with family and this year is no different. It’s about embracing the warm welcoming of summer and more playtime and joy. It’s moving at a slower rhythm and embracing more joy-FUL days ahead.

Creamy Dream Butter Chocolate Cups

 Happy October! This month feels like the beginning of sweet season and celebrations. We are loving this superfood dessert recipe by Philosophie Babe, Abby (@abbywellbalanced), and had to share with all of you!


It only uses TWO ingredients and a pinch of sea salt! Y’all know how much we love a simple recipe plus who doesn’t love dessert with superfood magic?!


These chocolate cups are made with our macadamia nut, coconut DREAM BUTTER. The Dream Butter tastes awesome on its own but goes beautifully well with chocolate. Abby used Hu Chocolate (our fave!) because of its super clean ingredients. There is no dairy, soy or refined sugar in Hu chocolate. These three ingredients make convention chocolate inflammatory to the whole body including the gut.


Once you try homemade chocolate cups at home, you’ll never go back to store-bought ones again! 

Makes: 12


Gather This:

Dream Butter

One bag Hu Kitchen Chocolate Gems (about 9 oz.)

Pinch (or two) of sea salt


Do This:

In a saucepan, melt the chocolate gems on low heat until you have a smooth chocolate sauce.

Line a muffin tray with paper or silicone muffin liners.

Pour a tablespoon of melted chocolate into each muffin liner.

Place in the freezer for about 10 minutes.

Remove tray from the freezer, spoon 1-2 teaspoons of Dream Butter on top of the chocolate layer.

Place back in the freezer for 5 min, then sprinkle a touch of sea salt on top.

Continue to freeze cups for 30 min to an hour.

Peel out of the muffin liners and enjoy!

Simple Pumpkin Spiced Latte With Fall Vibes

We’re celebrating the start of autumn and the re-launch of our seasonal superfood blend, Fall Vibes by making this delicious pumpkin spiced latte by Philosophie Babe, Danielle Bear (@cacaoforcoconuts_)!


Who says you can’t have clean + nourishing pumpkin spiced lattes? No us! We love our seasonal superfood blend because it’s loaded with high vibrational superfoods and adaptogens to support your body during this season of release and softness. Our Fall Vibes blend has been lovingly crafted by all of us and was specifically created with you in mind. Made from healing adaptogens, nutrient-dense superfoods, and traditional fall spices it’s the best way to celebrate fall without sacrificing your health with artificial sweeteners. 


Enjoy this creamy, cozy latte with a cacao cookie! It’s creamy, light and sweet and doesn’t leave you heavy or achy from artificial sweeteners. It’s entirely vegan and all organic. You know, only the good stuff. 

Ingredients:

2 tbsp pumpkin puree

½ cup nut milk

1 tbsp maple syrup

1 heaping tsp Fall Vibes

½ cup coconut creamer (or sub more nut milk)


Directions:

On the stove, in a small pot, stir the pumpkin, nut milk, maple syrup and Fall Vibes. Start with medium heat then reduce heat and let it thicken slightly. The thickness will depend on the milk you use and what’s in it. I used homemade almond milk so there wasn’t much to thicken.

If you have a frother, froth the coconut creamer or nut milk. If you don’t have one, add this directly to the pot (you can also combine all this into a blender to froth it up slightly).

Pour the pumpkin puree into a mug, top with frothed creamer and some pumpkin spice. ENJOY!

Homemade Mint Chip Nice Cream

This year somehow felt like summer went by way too fast but also seemed to last for months and months. I’m going to miss the sweet summer moments with my family but I’m making more of an effort to bring more joy and play into our everyday lives. 


So while the kiddos are back in zoom school I’ve decided to celebrate the end of summer with this homemade mint chip nice cream recipe! I love how creamy and vibrant this recipe is and the mint flavor is so satisfying. We’ve added lots of dark chocolate chips and topped it with Green Bee Honey for an extra boost of immunity. 


Full disclosure, I ate two huge bowls of this nice cream all two myself and felt ZERO guilt about it. It’s so clean! All vegan, gluten-free, paleo and made with whole, real ingredients. Dig in!!

 

 

Gather This:

4 cups frozen banana slices (~2large bananas)

⅛ tsp pure peppermint extract, or more as desired

Pinch of salt

½ cup coconut cream

1 tsp Green Dream Superfood + Protein Blend

1 tsp Green Bee Honey

2-3 tbsp chocolate chips (we love Lily’s Sweets)

TOPPING: Green Dream Superfood + Protein Blend & Green Bee Honey


Do This:

Place frozen banana slices, peppermint extract, salt, coconut cream, Green Dream, and Green Bee Honey into a high-speed food processor or blender.

Blend on high for 1 to 2 minutes stopping to scrape the sides every so often.

If your blender is having a hard time blending the bananas, add coconut cream or almond milk by the tablespoon. Add in the chocolate chips at the end and blend once.

Once pureed together, your mint chip nice cream should be like a super thick smoothie or soft serve. Option to eat immediately or to transfer to a parchment-lined bread pan to freeze for later.

Freeze nice cream for 1 to 2 hours so that it hardens enough to scoop like ice cream, but isn’t too hard where you can’t scoop it.
