I want to share a couple REALLY good and healthy drinks for you to enjoy during your winter. We definitely enjoy them over at the Garon house so I decided not to keep them a secret anymore. LOL One is a healthy hot cocoa recipe that will warm your tummies on these cold winter nights. The other is an amazing power smoothie for crazy energy during your busy work days. Try em out and let me know what you think. Creamy Hot Macadamia Cocoa 6 soaked macadamia nuts 1 tbsp coconut cream (also called coconut butter - different from just the oil) 1 tbsp raw cacao powder (get at Fruitful Yield or Whole Foods) Stevia (healthy sweetner 400x more sweet than sugar) to taste 1 to 1/2 cups water (depending on how creamy you like it)
DIRECTIONS: Put all ingredients in blender and blend on high. If you have a high powered blender, you can simply blend longer to warm slightly. If your blender is weaker, this will burn out the motor. To warm, place in a saucepan on the stove on very low and heat slowly to body temperature. Do not heat above 115 degrees.
Pour in mug. Slurp. Enjoy :-) As promised... here's an amazing starter for your day or any time for a super awesome energy booster that's jam packed with nutrients galore.
Mango Mint Power Smoothie Toss in as much water as you would like depending on your desired thickness. 3 tblspns of Organic Flax Seeds 2 tblspns of Organic Chia Seeds 1/2 an orange 1/4 of a banana 1 cup of fresh pineapple or papaya 1 cup fresh mango 1 tbspn of fresh mint 1 big leaf of kale
DIRECTIONS: Blend and walaaa... ENJOY! This is sooo gooood and sooo energizing!! :) :) :)
