Almond milk is a great non dairy alternative to cow milk. However a lot of store brands contain many fillers and added ingredients that are not necessary. This recipe is simple, easy and makes creamy and delicious almond milk. A nut bag is very helpful to get the most liquid from your mix, and can be purchased online for a few dollars. You can use the leftover pulp in smoothies, homemade granola bars, or baked goods.
Ladies and gents: Meet the Cacao Mint Chip Protein Smoothie. Just a couple quick fun facts about the mighty cacao bean to get you all excited n’ stuff: 1. It’s one of the most antioxidant rich foods on the planet. 2. In its raw form (= “nibs”), Cacao is unprocessed and does not contain any sugar. 3. It contains over 300 compounds including fiber, iron, magnesium, AND a “bliss” chemical that has a unique resemblance to TCH (don’t worry, you won’t get a buzz. But expect a good mood.)
We came up with VFit Squad's version of bulletproof coffee and this isn't your average cup of joe! This coffee is filled with plenty of flavor and healthy fats to keep your brain on full drive all day long. This coffee makes a wonderful start to your day. Feel free to omit butter. Some VFit Squad members like adding a little collagen powder in this to help stave off muscle soreness too with all the workouts they get in at the VFit Studio. Last but not least (wow, how much can we say about this recipe, right?) we highly recommend a hand held milk frother if this is something you find yourself making daily. Easy clean up and super simple to use.
This recipe was shared during a Reset and everyone was so excited to get on the train to make it. It was "the hit" recipe. This drink is warm and fuzzy, full of all things great for your mind and body. Recipe from Dr. Arjan Khalsa http://drarjan.com/?s=Turmeric
This is the perfect winter treat. Why spend the money and take in the loaded sugar and chemicals of most store bought flavored specialty coffees and lattes, when you can make your own?
Don't get us wrong, we absolutely LOVE ourselves some chai tea! BUT - a lot of times what you are getting when you are out and about is full of extra ingredients, or loaded up with insane amounts of extra sugar or syrup that is just not necessary. We've created this homemade chai tea recipe which takes the key flavors from their natural source - cinnamon sticks, ginger root, cardamon pods, and black pepper corns - so you don't need to add much else to this to truly enjoy a lovely chai at home.
This is a great staple to have on hand to keep your immunity high. Bone broth provides vital minerals and nutrients. Use as a soup base, or enjoy a cup a day to keep you healthy and feeling great!! This recipe is great to use up leftover bones after roasting a chicken.
Smoothies are an excellent way to seriously pack in a ton of nutrition! Just look at this ingredient list...it's a bit long, but for a moment, imagine sitting at a table eating each ingredient individually. You'd never think to eat spinach for breakfast, or be downing a spoonful of a superfood like spirulina, would you? This also has potassium and electrolyte rich coconut water as part of the liquid base, along with more potassium found in the banana. The list of benefits is MAJOR. Especially if you are working out a lot, this protein and nutrient rich smoothie will help give your body the fuel and nutrients it needs. And - totally free free to mix this one up a bit as you get the hang of it. We like adding things like apples (skin on), frozen pineapples, avocados for extra fat and creaminess, etc to our smoothies too.
A warm and festive drink, this Mulled Wine is perfect to serve over the holiday's or during the dark and colder winter months. This warm and fuzzy drink is loaded with fresh spices and will make your house smell amazing!
Moscow Mule's seem to be the drink of the times right now, so we couldn't help but to try and put a fresh and healthy spin on this refreshing cocktail. In this recipe, you are making your own gingerale in essence and will have extra ginger water on hand. You can always omit the alcohol to make this a delightful "mocktail" as well.
