Pique Tea Smoothie

fullsizeoutput_1062.jpeg

I was listening to Gary Vee's podcast and he was talking about the founder, Simon Cheng of Pique Tea. Gary Vee was talking about morning and night routines, or just routines to be your most productive self. And he said he loved what Simon has to say about tea, and that when you're drinking the tea, take time to think and reflect and to just enjoy the present moment.

It is so true, usually we rush and are out the door to a coffee shop and getting mediocre tea, or coffee to chug for energy. What if we train ourselves to enjoy our cup of caffeine in routine, rather than rush? It's basically like setting an intention for the day with your cup of what you prefer.

Starting tomorrow, with my new tea.. I am going to sit with a pretty mug and actually put my sacred corner to use.... You read it here first, and you can hold me accountable on my IG story.

I prefer frozen fruits for smoothies. The consistency is thicker and does not get watered down quickly. Also in the off seasons frozen fruit is cheaper and taste better, even when organic.

I actually copied this smoothie from a place I've been too many times in South Florida, at Raw Juce. My version is just as good, or even better, and that's without my vitamix which I obviously don't take with me while traveling.

Ingredients

6 Pineapple chunks

6 Mango chunks

1/2 an Orange (Fresh, or orange juice)

1 Granny Smith Apple (peeled)

1 TBSP Golden Turmeric Blend (I use Moondeli)

2 TBSP Protein powder (I prefer Garden Life or Vega)

1 TBSP Hemp & Chia seeds & Coconut Flakes

Cashew Milk

Coconut Water

Garnished however you like!

For this one I used Hemp seeds, Chia seeds, Coconut flakes & Hemp sprouted granola.

I forgot bee pollen and honey, yet was still delicious!

Theres also some granola at the bottom for a happy ending.

Xo, Enjoy!

Super Smoothie with Homemade Nut Milk

IMG_0764.JPG

Every smoothie I made, (which is almost everyday) my goal is to enhance each recipe for vital nutrients and proteins. Smoothies are not meal replacements for me, just an addition to whatever I am eating at the moment. Or it's a great pick me up mid day.

Instead of buying costly nut milks at the store, I looked up some recipes and created my own. (I'm sure i'm not the only one to come up with the same recipe.)

First i put 2 tsp of hemp seeds, shredded coconut and sometimes chia seeds, then I add water or coconut milk. About a half cup, or to the top of your vitamix blade. Add cinnamon and a date for flavor. Then I blend on high for a minute until smooth and frothy.

Now it's time to add your fruits and veggies. I stick with frozen fruits, it is way more cost efficient. My go to is wild blueberries, dark cherries and mango. I also usually add a frozen packet of Dragon Fruit for added antioxidants.

Usually I also add in adaptogens, like blue green algae, maca and turmeric from @moondeli and Nature's best spirulina.

Blend & pour!

Add any toppings you prefer, I love bee pollen, more chia, and chocolate coconut flakes.

enjoy! xo, Rachel
