TURMERIC. By now, you probably know what turmeric is (basically the new kale). It’s a spice made yellow by a compound called curcumin, which may have powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects.

LEMON. When life hands you lemons, hoard them all to make tea. We know them and love them for their vitamin C content, but they also contain a wide variety of other vitamins and minerals!

GINGER. In the same family as turmeric, ginger is a root that has been used for years and years to treat digestive issues and nausea. This study found that it’s anti-inflammatory properties can reduce muscle pain after exercise!

ORGANIC APPLE CIDER VINEGAR. This is one of those must-be-in-my-pantry-at-all-times items. It’s very important to buy apple cider vinegar unpasteurized and “with the mother” The mother is what contains all the healthy bacteria filled with antioxidants—called polyphenols—that may improve digestion, boost your immune system, soothe a sore throat, and keep your skin looking 💯.

So grab your 5 ingredients, a pot, and make this nourishing turmeric lemon ginger tea to have tomorrow morning! Your I-want-to-go-back-to-bed-right-now self will thank you. 😊

Cheers!

Chocolate Chai Coffee Recipe

The presence of some chocolate chai loose leaf tea in our inventory sparked some inspiration for an experiment.
Chocolate is rich. When we eat a chocolate bar we savor the flavor, roll the chocolate over our tongues so that we can taste thoroughly. Chai too is rich. Tea in itself however can tend to be bold, and rich, however both the chocolate and the chai in this tea lend themselves to combining with a rich cream or milk as well as sweetener to fully highlight the flavors.

In comes coffee – coffee is strong. When combined with Chocolate Chai Tea, coffee acts as the base and provides the vehicle for the chocolate and chai flavors. Then add cream and a sweetener, and you have coffee with a kick, chocolate chai tea with a boost. Overall – super delicious!

Chocolate Chai Coffee Recipe

Brewing the brew:
Using a french press, place 4 tablespoons unflavored coffee inside. Add 2 teaspoons chocolate chai tea to the press. Add hot water and allow to sit 4-5 minutes to make 2 cups of coffee-chai-tea brew.

Add creamer, milk, almond or cashew milk, and sweetener to taste. I recommend a thick creamer or whole milk, or a thicker almond or cashew milk as is often found in the refrigerated section. Agave nectar makes a fantastic sweetener as it blends well with the chocolate, chai, and coffee.

Enjoy!!

Tropical Citrus Orange Smoothie

This sumo Citrus Tropical Orange Creamsicle Smoothie will bring lots of sunshine to your day while bringing delicious nourishment too!

  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Makes: 3 to 4 servings

This Citrus Mandarins and fresh pineapple are a perfect tropical-inspired pair, with subtle coconut flavors and a secret dose of veggies. This smoothie is topped with coconut and oranges, for an absolutely dreamy and creamy morning treat.

Smoothies are such a great option for a nourishing and energizing breakfast, with endless possibilities for flavor combinations and toppings. It’s always fun and delicious to add a variety of fruits, plus some veggies to balance out the sweetness and nutrients. The optional plant-based protein powder adds both flavor and (of course!) protein to make you feel full for longer. So whether it’s hot or cold weather in your corner of the world, smoothies are always a yummy choice!

This recipe uses canned lite coconut milk for a tropical feel, but you can feel free to use a different plant milk such as soy milk, oat milk, or almond milk. The fresh pineapple can be substituted for frozen or canned pineapple. If using frozen, you can either thaw it prior to using, or add a little extra plant milk if your blender needs it.

INGREDIENTS

½ cup canned lite coconut milk (or plant milk of choice)

5 Sumo Citrus Mandarins

3 ½ cups diced fresh pineapple

½ cup frozen cauliflower

1 ½ frozen bananas

1 scoop vanilla protein powder, optional

¼ to 1/3 cup unsweetened coconut flakes, to taste

INSTRUCTIONS


To a high-speed blender, add coconut milk. Slice 4 Sumo Citrus Mandarins in half across the middle. Squeeze juice into blender, scraping out orange flesh into blender also. Add pineapple, cauliflower, frozen bananas, and protein powder if using. Blend well until smooth.

Remove peel from remaining Sumo Citrus Mandarin and either dice or separate into segments. Pour smoothie into glasses and top with orange pieces and coconut flakes.
