Thanksgiving is this Thursday! Are you ready? If you’re still looking for a dish to bring to the table, spice it up with a nourishing, high-vibe superfood dish!


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!

Cloudy days call for soup and lots of it. Here at Philosophie HQ, we love creating soups with full, rich flavors that have grounding and soothing properties. Everything is created with careful love and intention. The best part? They’re so easy to reciprocate right in your own kitchen!

This is a gorgeous creamy butternut squash soup with a delicious savory flavor. We've added Green Dream Superfood Blend (of course!) for extra superfoods and protein. Gently warm it up as the cold approaches. Don’t heat it too much or too long so the enzymes stay alive and well! 

Homemade Butternut Squash Soup

Do This:

1 butternut squash (peeled, seeded, and cubed into 1-inch pieces)

2 ½ cup vegetable broth

3 garlic cloves (peeled)

2 small shallots or 1/2 sweet onion (peeled + halved)

1 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp Green Dream Superfood Blend

1/2 tsp sea salt


Gather This:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Prep veggies by tossing with olive oil and placing on roasting pan or rimmed cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Roast veggies for 45 minutes, stirring once or twice and cooking until squash is tender. Remove any shallot, onion, or garlic that seems to be over-roasting. Remove and let cool for 10 to 15 minutes. Place squash and shallots in blender/food processor and blend until creamy. In a large pot, place blended mix and add broth and salt. Cook on medium-low until heated through, adding more broth or water as needed. Taste for seasoning, stir in Green Dream and top with pumpkin seeds. ENJOY!

Baked Brussels Salad with Green Superfood Dressing

Baked Brussels Salad with Green Superfood Dressing

Green veggie salads are NOTHING to be scared of. They can be just as delicious, nutritious and satisfying as any other salad. This baked brussels salad is perfect for those chilly afternoons and it is AMAZING! Make it with family, friends or as a wholesome lunch for just yourself. Add Green Dream to an anchovy oil dressing (TRUST US!), which melts anchovies in their oil then is added in with tahini, lemon and parsley, and creates one of the most savory, satisfying dressings you’ll ever have on a baked salad. 


This roasted brussels salad will feel like a ceasar salad but with a bit fresher and brighter texture. A Green Dream dressing will add an extra dose of nutrients and plant protein. The ingredient list may look long but totally worth it for a salad this filling and flavorful.

Brussel Sprout Salad

Gather This:

1 15 oz. can of chickpeas

1 tbsp za’atar seasoning

1 & ¼ lbs brussels sprouts (approx. 5 cups)

FOR THE DRESSING

1 tin anchovies (optional but so tasty!)

2 cloves garlic minced or grated with a microplane

1 tsp Green Dream

½ cup tahini

1 lemon for juicing

½ cup flat leaf parsley finely chopped

¼ cup cold water


Do This:

Preheat your oven to 400°F.

Drain and rinse chickpeas. Dry them well before adding them to a food processor. Pulse until they form chickpea "crumbs." Spread out evenly on a baking sheet.

Generously drizzle the chickpea crumbs with olive oil, then toss in the za'atar and season with salt. Toss with your hands until everything is coated.

Thinly slice brussel sprouts and add them to a separate baking sheet. You want them to have enough space on the pan to breathe and crisp up, so feel free to use two baking sheets if needed. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

Add the chickpeas and the brussel sprouts to the oven, with the chickpeas on the highest rack. Bake the brussel sprouts for 20-22 minutes, and the chickpeas for 25-30 minutes or until dry and crisp.

Green Superfood Dressing

While the brussel sprouts and chickpeas are roasting, make the GREEN DREAM DRESSING.

Put a small saucepan on medium low heat. Add in just the oil from the tin of anchovies, and let it heat up. Then add the anchovies to the pan, they should immediately sizzle and begin to "melt" into the oil.

Add the grated garlic into the pan with the anchovy oil. Cook on medium heat for 2-3 minutes or until you can no longer taste any raw garlic. This will look like a thick paste.

Add this paste, the tahini, the juice from one lemon, the Green Dream and the parsley to a bowl. Combine everything to a blender for a light green sauce. 


Remove the brussel sprouts and chickpea crumble from the oven. Drizzle a good amount of the dressing onto the brussel sprouts and give them a toss in the pan.

To serve, pile the brussel sprouts into two bowls. Sprinkle the chickpea crumbles on top. ENJOY!

By adding in collagen, you're ensuring that your body receives enough of this key building block that's responsible for healthy skin, hair, nails, bones, AND joints.
