Chewy Sweet Potato Cookies

Posted on January 09, 2015 by Erika Davies | 0 Comments

     Sweet potatos are rich in vitamin A as beta-carotene and vitamin C- the two antioxidants work together in the body to eliminate free radicals.  They also work as anti-inflammatories, and can reduce the risk of developing cancer, according to the National Cancer Institute.  These beauties are the perfect accompaniment to any plant-based meal.  We enjoyed them as dessert after a hearty vegetable miso-soup with zucchini noodles, quinoa nori rolls, and shaved radish and cucumber salad. 

     This recipe can be prepared using regular orange sweet potatoes, yams, Korean yams, or exciting purple sweet potatoes like the ones pictured in our version!  They're SUPER easy to make and you can even omit the coconut and agave nectar if preferred.

Ingredients:

2 Sweet Potatoes, scrubbed clean and sliced 1/2 inch thick

2 T Agave Nectar

3 T raw, unsweetened Coconut Flakes

To make:  Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spread the sweet potato slices out in a single layer.  Bake for 25-30 mins until the centers are soft and chewy. Remove from heat.  Drizzle with agave nectar, sprinkle with coconut flakes and serve warm with tea or hot lemon water.

Power Smoothie

Posted on December 11, 2012 by Kyleen Keenan | 0 Comments

This is my favorite protein smoothie - it gets me through until lunch with nice, clean energy.


1/2 cup frozen mangoes

4-5 frozen strawberries

whole frozen banana

2-3 coconut milk ice cubes (pour coconut milk into an ice tray and freeze over night - makes it extra creamy)

1-2 heaping tablespoons of BE STRONG protein smoothie mix

1 teaspoon BE SMOOTH cacao smoothie mix

1 cup almond milk kefir* or coconut water or a mix of the two. 

1/2 avocado (makes it creamy and OH SO DELICIOUS)

Put all ingredients (liquid first) in blender. Blend until smooth. This is a thick smoothie - if you want to make it thinner add more liquid. P.S. 


** I make almond milk kefir (almond milk yogurt, basically) by 1. soaking raw almonds 24-48 hours. Rinse. Blend on high for 2 minutes with clean water (as much as my blender will hold). Then add 2-3 capsules of probiotics, stir gently. Leave on counter with paper towel for 12 hours. Cover and refrigerate  This way I get my probiotics!
