It’s so easy to incorporate superfoods into any dish you plan to make and loads on the nutrients. You’re friends and family will be grateful for it!


Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite Thanksgiving dishes!

Pumpkin Spice Smoothie

Start off your holiday with this sweet take on a pumpkin spice smoothie made with Berry Bliss Superfood + Protein Blend, Green Bee Honey and Coconut Dream Coconut Butter.

Gather This:
1 cup almond milk
1 frozen banana
2 pluots or persimmons
1 tbsp Green Bee Honey
1 tbsp Coconut Dream Coconut Butter
2 tbsp Berry Bliss Superfood + Protein Blend
1 tbsp almond butter
1/2 cup organic pumpkin puree
1 tbsp cinnamon
1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice


Do This:

Mix all ingredients in a high-speed blender. Top with pecans and granola (optional). Cut open and scoop out the contents of a pumpkin to use it as your cup for an extra fall flavor and fun!

Colorful Quinoa Salad

This salad is the perfect pair for any turkey or mashed potatoes. Every ingredient in this dish has tons of health benefits! Add in a dash of Green Dream Superfood + Protein Blend for extra nutrients!

Gather This:

2 cups of cooked tricolor quinoa
1 tbsp coconut oil
½ red onion
2 cups of kale, washed, ribbed, and chopped
¼ cup of pine nuts
juice of 1 medium lime
1 roasted or boiled sweet potato (peeled + diced)
¼ tsp Himalayan pink salt
¼ tsp pink peppercorns
¼ cup pomegranate seeds 


Do This:
Heat coconut oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook, stirring, until browned, about 5 minutes. Add kale, stirring until wilted and just tender (but still bright green) about 3 to 4 minutes
. Add salt + pepper and stir. Add sweet potatoes, kale and onion mixture, Green Dream and lime juice to cooked quinoa. Fluff with a fork to combine.

Garnish with chopped pine nuts and pomegranate seeds and serve slightly warm or at room temperature.

Gluten-Free Stuffing

I’m obsessed with this butternut squash + brussels sprouts stuffing it’s such a better alternative than stuffing you would pick up at the store. Add in some Green Dream Superfood + Protein Blend for an extra energetic boost!

Gather This:

1 lb butternut squash (cubed)
1 lb brussels sprouts (halved)
1 medium gala apple (diced)
2 shallots (thinly sliced)
3 tbsp olive oil (divided into 2 tbsp + 1 tsp) + 1 cup onion (diced)
1 cup celery (diced)
10 slices bread of choice: crusty sourdough, dry cornbread, whole grain, or, if you are gluten-free then millet bread from Food For Life will work nicely. Prior to preparing the recipe, leave bread out for a day to become slightly dry, then cut into cubes.
1 1/2 cup low sodium vegetable broth (plus extra as needed)
2 tsp fresh rosemary (chopped)
1 tsp fresh thyme
1 tsp chopped fresh sage
1/3 cup dried cranberries or dried goji berries
1/3 cup pecans or walnuts
Sea salt + pepper to taste


Do This:
Heat oven to 400 degrees. Toss the squash, brussels sprouts, apples, + shallots in 2 T oil, season well with salt + pepper. Roast till vegetables are very tender (I actually like my sprouts a bit singed) and remove from oven. Reduce oven heat to 350.
Heat other tbsp oil in a large pot. Sautee the onion + celery till translucent (about 5-8 min). Add the bread cubes and allow them to get golden brown with the veggies in the oil. Add a dash of salt and pepper.
Add the roasted vegetables, vegetable broth, cranberries (or goji berries), pecans, Green Dream + seasonings. Stir the mix till the broth has almost entirely absorbed in the toasted bread. Transfer to a baking sheet + bake at 350 for about 20 minutes. Serve hot.

Persimmon Pumpkin Pie

This recipe is SO good. We gave the pumpkin pie a sweet makeover by adding persimmons, our vitamin C-packed Berry Bliss Superfood + Protein Blend, and a scrumptious coconut crust.

Gather This:
1 cup raw macadamia nuts
1 ¾ cup shredded coconut
1 tsp vanilla
¾ tsp Himalayan Pink Salt
3 tbsp coconut nectar
2 tbsp coconut oil
3 tbsp garbanzo bean flour
¾ cup dried figs (soaked in hot water for 10 min + drained)
3 ripe persimmons (de-stemmed + peeled)
½ cup canned pumpkin
¾ cup full fat coconut milk
4 eggs (separated)
1 tsp of freshly grated ginger root
¼ tsp of allspice
¼ cup of palm sugar
1 tbsp of Berry Bliss Superfood + Protein Blend


Do This:

First create the crust by adding macadamia nuts, shredded coconut, vanilla, coconut nectar, coconut oil, and ½ a teaspoon of the salt to a high-speed blender and processing until ingredients are well combined. Use a spatula to scrape this mixture into a mixing bowl, add garbanzo bean flour to mixture, and stir until mixture is well combined and forms a crumbly, moist texture. Press the mixture into a well-oiled pie pan and bake at 325 F for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside.

Create the pie filling by adding the figs, persimmons, pumpkin puree, coconut milk, egg yolks, ginger root, allspice, palm sugar, the remainder of the salt, and the Berry Bliss Superfood Blend, if desired, to a large high speed blender, blend on high until smooth and then transfer mixture into a large mixing bowl. In a small blender, add egg whites, blend on high until frothy, and then fold egg whites into pie filling mixture in large mixing bowl. (If you only have one blender, blend the egg whites first and pour them into a separate bowl before blending other ingredients.)
Pour the pie filling into the cooled pie crust and bake at 350 F for about 60 minutes or until the filling sets up to a thick, creamy consistency. Allow the pie to cool before cutting.

Spiced Apple Manhattan

We can’t have a Thanksgiving roundup without a little something for the adults. With refreshing apple cider, a sprinkle of cinnamon, and warming whiskey, this is one refreshment that is guaranteed to boost your holiday spirit.

Gather This:
2 oz of whiskey
1 tsp sugar in the raw
apple cider (premade + cooled)
apple slice for garnish
ground cinnamon for garnish

Do This:
Put ice in a shaker and add cider, whiskey, and brown sugar. Shake well and strain into a mason jar glass filled with ice. Garnish with apple slice and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Check out the video below to see Sophie create this beautiful cocktail in her kitchen!


We wish you all a beautiful Thanksgiving with your loved ones!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Roasted Cauliflower Steaks

Philosophie Roasted Cauliflower Steaks

Let’s call it a steak night! Well, kind of. This scrumptious, roasted cauliflower dressed in a zesty Green Dream tomato sauce will totally hit the spot. 


Cauliflower is an excellent blank canvas. You can steam or blanch it to keep its essential flavors intact, but by roasting or sautéing it, you can bring out its sweetness. Cauliflower will absorb the oil and seasoning, soaking up flavors much the way eggplant does. But it remains firmer. We’ve added Green Dream to a yummy marinara sauce for a little boost of plant-based protein, antioxidants, and of course, energizing superfood greens! 


This is a super simple dish to prepare, and the sauce is a pure knockout. Trust me! This is the perfect family dish for all your backyard cookouts and gatherings.

Roasted Cauliflower Steaks

Gather This:

1 head of cauliflower

1 jar of favorite marinara 

1 tbsp nutritional yeast

1 tbsp harissa

1 tsp Green Dream

EVOO

Salt + pepper to taste


Do This:

Slice the head of Cauliflower vertically, like you are slicing bread. Place on a baking sheet in a preheated oven, 400 degrees. Drizzle EVOO, salt and pepper and roast for 15 or so minutes, each side. While your cauli steaks cook, combine marinara, harissa, and Green Dream in a pot  on the stovetop and warm up. Place warmed sauce on a plate, add roasted cauli steaks, sprinkle Nutritional Yeast and more Green Dream or salt + pepper if you prefer!

Creamy layers of yogurt, flavored with our nourishing Green Dream, energizing Cacao Magic and immune-boosting Berry Bliss plus layered with granola and a pitaya puree, this is the recipe of our superfood dreams!

Summer Cacao Lemon Toast

Summer Berry Lemon Toast

What flavors remind you of summer? The refreshing flavor of lemon is one of our favorites and we’ve created the perfect little toast to celebrate summer!


For this toast creation we’ve taken our Cacao Magic Superfood Blend which has tons of vitamin and antioxidant powers, our Berry Bee Honey for extra vitamin C and healing properties, and Coconut Magic Coconut Butter, making this a perfect mid-day boost.


We love drizzling on our supercharged raw honey due to its antibiotic properties, energy-lifting powers, and plant-based protein from brown rice. This natural sweetener includes pomegranate, acai, goji, and camu-camu (ALL organic!), which are incredibly high in antioxidants. 


We topped these little beauties with bee pollen and dried lemon slices which you can buy or make on your own by slicing and baking in the oven at its lowest temperature for 4-5 hours.

Cacao Chocolate Chip Cookies

We are OBSESSED with these cacao chocolate chip cookies by our girl, Kelly (@thekellycollopy) using our Cacao Magic Superfood Blend! Want to know the secret to these yummy recipes? Avocado!


It may sound crazy but the combination of chocolate and avocado create a rich, smooth and decadent texture without any hint of avocado. Avocado offers healthy fats, fiber and makes any smoothie or treat you’re making - in this case, batter - super thick and creamy! 


Using avocado in your baked good recipes is a perfect healthy substitute for butters or oils and the Cacao Magic gives these cookies a rich, chocolate flavor with extra nutrients!


This recipe was created by Kelly and originally adapted from a recipe by Blair of @balancewithb.

Gather This:

1 ripe avocado

½ cup coconut sugar

1 cage-free egg

1 tbsp water

Dash of vanilla extract

¼ tsp baking powder

¼ cup Cacao Magic

¼ cup cacao powder

Large handful of chocolate chips

Sprinkle of sea salt


Do This:

Mash avocado and mix well with coconut sugar, egg, water and vanilla until creamy and smooth. 

Add in baking powder, Cacao Magic and cacao powder, scraping sides of bowl until well incorporated. 

Fold in chocolate chips and scoop heaping tablespoons of dough onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. 

Top with a few more chocolate chips for good measure & a touch of sea salt, then bake in a 350 degree preheated oven for 12 minutes. These will be super fudgy, but firm up as they cool! Store in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer.

Goji Berry Rose Refresher

Hydration doesn’t have to be boring! Besides our daily dose of sunshine water with liquid chlorophyll there are so many fun ways to get creative with your water. Making a mocktail with a herbal infusion and superfoods adds nutrients to amp up your system and makes it tastier and more vibrant.


A herbal infusion can look like flowers, herbs, spices and fruit to everyday beverages like water, sparkling water or kombucha. These herbal elements have a deliciously subtle taste, don't add extra sugar and add their own set of health benefits depending on the herbs you use. 


Goji berries protect the eyes, support your immune system, and promote healthy skin. Rose provides a bit of magic and a boost of antioxidants, tannins, flavonoids, and essential A, C, D, E, and B3 vitamins. We’ve also added our Berry Bliss which is high in antioxidants, protein, vitamin A, and contains camu camu—one of the world's most abundant forms of vitamin C.


Make sure to top it off with berries and ice for a beautiful spring refresher! 

Gather This:

1 cup hot water

4 tbsp goji berries

2 tbsp dried rose petals

UPON SERVING -

Mixed berries

Kombucha or sparkling water

Juice of half a lemon

1 tsp Berry Bliss

Optional: fresh mint, maple syrup or honey to sweeten


Do This:

Steep the goji berries and rose petals in hot water for at least 20 minutes (ideally overnight) or until the goji berries are soft and the water turns slightly pink and infused with the flavors of the goji berry and rose.

Strain the goji berries and rose from the water and then add kombucha or sparkling water, Berry Bliss, lemon juice and mixed berries. You can add ice for an extra cool beverage.
