Morning Delight Smoothie (hot or cold)

IMG_3296I enjoy this warm in the morning. But, you could also make it more of a milkshake with ice + cold tea. It makes it even yummier if you get outside and say hello to the sun.

Ingredients:

  • 1 c. of tea (I usually use longevity tea or chai rooibos)
  • 1/2 c. coconut milk
  • 1-2 TB cacao powder
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla powder
  • 1 TB of coconut oil or mct oil
  • 2 scoops of collagen
  • dash of cinnamon
  • stevia (sweetener) to taste – I use about 10 drops

This is my go to recipe and then I play with these variations depending on the day: 1 TB of ghee, few drops of peppermint oil or medicine flower extracts like  chocolate/vanilla/coffee/cinnamon and grated cacao butter.

Instructions:

  1. Steep the tea
  2. Add ingredients to blender
  3. Blend
  4. Enjoy + Have a delightful day! 🙂

Chocolate Delish Muffins

Ingredients:

  • 6 eggs
  • 1/4 c. ghee (or butter)
  • 1/2 c. coconut milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla powder
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 c. coconut flour
  • 2 TB coconut oil
  • 4 TB cacao powder (could substitute carob powder)
  • 4 TB of grated cacao butter (or other nut butter if you prefer – see below)
  • stevia (20-30 drops) – use whatever sweetener you prefer like xylitol, honey etc.
  • big pinch of sea salt
    optional: 2 TB of collagen powder and/or 2-4 TB of sunflower/almond cashew butter is good too. I also like to add 5-10 drops of chocolate extract from medicine flower.FullSizeRender-2

Instructions:
1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
2. I add everything into the blender and mix. You can also use a handheld mixer or a food processor.
3. Grease the muffin pan with coconut oil
4. Pour mixture into a 12 cup muffin pan
5. Bake for 25 minutes

Note: When they first come out of the oven they may be a bit puffy but they settle down after after 10 minutes. These are kinda like a muffin meet brownie meets bread – well, at least for someone who doesn’t eat bread. 😉

Enjoy!
