I absolutely love this smoothie for Spring time. The mint gives it such a fresh test and the citrus livens it up, while at the same time the avocado and hemp milk give it a creamy deliciousness. Its also got so much green in it that just looking at it makes me happy. I've been drinking it lately thinking how awesome it would be with chocolate. So I added some cacao and dates but it didn't have that beautiful vibrant green color anymore. So luckily, this morning, I had the brilliant idea to shave our BE COOL chocolate bar into the smoothie. And viola the mint-citrus-chip deliciousness was born. Enjoy!
For Green Smoothie:
1 cup homemade hemp milk
1 green apple (cut without the pit)
Juice of 1 lime
4-5 fresh mint leaves
For chocolate topping:
To Make: Blend all ingredients in a high speed blender until creamy and delicious. Pour into a beautiful cup. Shave BE COOL bar on top. Drink up minty freshness!
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!
Superfood Ice Cold Chocolate Latte
This is our favorite treat on a hot day! This drink contains antioxidant rich raw cacao, and also superfood lucuma, which is high in beta carotene and B vitamins to boost your brain power - perfect for an afternoon pick me up. It also contains mesquite which is a source of protein and calcium for bone health. Make a batch and keep in the fridge to enjoy this superfood treat at your leisure.
4 tsp Be Cozy (per 8 oz milk)
8 ounces of your favorite milk (we love it with Hemp Milk!)
Heat up half the amount of hemp milk just so it is warm enough to melt the Be Cozy mix. Add the Be Cozy and stir until all chocolate its melted. Add the cold milk. When serving, pour over ice.
To make the mix thicker, stick it in the fridge for a couple hours.
Add other superfoods if you wish!
