Peppermint Collagen Hot Chocolate

The holiday season is all about celebrations with friends and loved ones surrounded by good food. What we nourish our bodies affects our health and mood; when we nourish ourselves with real food and lovingly enjoy a holiday treat we are more likely to maintain bliss and balance. 


No need to deprive yourself and definitely no need for judgment or guilt, especially when you incorporate high-vibe superfoods into your holiday treats!


This rich, minty hot chocolate gets its smooth texture from highly nutritious nut milk and its subtle sweetness from immunity-boosting honey. We’ve added our Cacao Magic blend for a variety of potent superfoods, including a dose of finely milled reishi mushroom powder, known to have an ever-growing list of healing properties. And a boost of our Cosmic Elixir for collagen and superfoods. 

Gather This:

1 cup non-dairy milk

½ cup water

3 tbsp Cacao Magic or raw cacao

1 ½ tbsp sweetener of choice

A small pinch of salt

¼ tsp peppermint extract

1 tsp Cosmic Elixir

1 ounce of chocolate ( raw, vegan carob will also work)


Do This:

Blend all of the ingredients together, except for the chocolate. Pour the liquid into a small saucepan, add the chocolate and slowly bring to a simmer over medium heat. Whisk in the chocolate. Simmer for another minute or so, keeping an eye on the chocolate to make sure it doesn’t burn. Remove from heat. Enjoy warm or chilled (wine glass over ice)!

Summer Superfood Popsicles

Summer Superfood Popsicles

Summer is the perfect time to eat ice cream and popsicles, but it can also be the perfect time to cool down with a healthy treat. These three summer superfood popsicles are easy to make and packed full of nutrients that will keep you feeling light and energized during this hot season.


It’s so EASY to make your own popsicles at home and you can make it a fun family activity. We used popsicle molds we found on Amazon. Our favorite thing about this summer treat is that you can sneak in Philosophie superfoods and nutrients so you can trust them way more than the ones found in the freezer section. Plus, the kids love them so much more because they get to play a part in making them and they just taste better. Trust us!

Superfood Summer Popsicles

GREEN POPSICLES

Handful of kiwi

1 cup pineapple kombucha

1-2 droppers of Sunshine Drops

1 cup coconut water


CHOCOLATE COLD BREW POPSICLES

1-2 tbsp cold brew

Handful of dark chocolate

½ cup Cacao Magic

1 cup almond milk

Do This:

For each popsicle, pour all ingredients into a blender and combine until smooth.  Pour mixture into popsicle molds and freeze. Serve on a platter for your next pool patter and finish with a drizzle of superfood honey. ENJOY!

Tips:

  1. Depending on your popsicle mold, you may need to run warm water over the mold for a few seconds until the popsicles easily slide out. These pops can be stored in a sealed bag in the freezer for up to 2 weeks.
  2. If you don’t have pop molds, simply use dixie cups or regular cups with a straw in the middle. Easy peasy!

Is there anything that says summer BBQ like watermelon salsa? With sweet watermelon, fresh veggies, lime juice and our raw superfood honey, this salsa is a total crowd-pleaser. Watermelon salsa is refreshing; it can be served as a side to any summer meal or as an appetizer.


Watermelon is made of over 90% water, so it’s seriously going to quench your thirst. Watermelon is also great for soothing sore muscles. Paired with the Vitamin C of Berry Bee Honey, this app is actually great for immunity during the changing seasons. 


On top of being simply divine & tasty, this salsa is also abundant in antioxidants, probiotics, and omega-3s...which means that summer dreams should definitely be made of watermelon.
