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!

Easy Veggie Burger Kale Salad

Anyone else tired of having a salad for lunch and ending up STARVING two hours later? Same. Give us a salad that’s LOADED with delicious veggies, fruits, a rich protein-source and topped with a homemade Berry Bliss dressing to satisfy hunger and support your energy all day long!


In this salad, we used Dr. Prager’s California Veggie Burgers which includes 5g of protein and 10 different types of veggies. They’re so tasty and super satisfying. We also dressed it with a light and slightly sweet Berry Bliss dressing made from our Berry Bee Honey


Enjoy this salad for lunch or as a side dish to your family dinner! Can’t wait to hear what you think.


Gather This:

1 large bunch kale (leaves torn from stems)

1 cup tomatoes

½ cup dried cranberries

½ cup pine nuts

½ cup shredded carrots

¼  red onion (thinly sliced)

1 Dr. Praeger’s California Veggie Burger

FOR THE DRESSING

¼  cup apple cider vinegar

juice of 1 lemon

1 tbsp Berry Bee Honey

½  cup neutral oil (grapeseed, canola, etc)

salt and pepper to taste


Do This:

In a nonstick skillet, cook Dr. Praeger’s California Burger on each side for 5-7 minutes until golden brown. Chop burger into small pieces.  

Make the dressing by whisking together all the ingredients with a fork.

Put the shredded kale in a large bowl with the salt. With your hands, squeeze and massage the kale and mix it well with salt. Keep massaging the kale for up to 3-5 minutes as the kale will darken, shrink in size and the fibers will break down. Once this happens, mix in all of the other ingredients into the bowl.

Assemble salad by tossing all ingredients with dressing.
