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

Golde Goddess Smoothie Bowl

Confession, I have been addicted to the ancient spice “Turmeric”, long before I even knew the benefits of these magical roots. I genuinely enjoy the taste and that it turned my food orange. Nowadays; everyone's obsessed with anti-inflammatory foods, potions, dusts, you name it and we have access to it. There are so many ways to easily incorporate turmeric into your daily life just by adding this dust into your morning coffee, or water and lemon! More on that to come.

There are so many brands of Turmeric blends out there. I have tried 3 and each has their own distinctive flavor, aroma, and texture. Golde Turmeric Wellness blend has a smooth, velvet and sweet flavor with no sugar added! The hint of coconut milk powder gives this blend the perfect balance of sweet and spice. 

*Benefits of Turmeric*

* Anti-inflammatory

* Beauty food

* Antioxidant 

* Helps in fighting diabetes and cancer

* Mood and brain boosting
