I am obsessed with all things cacao and this recipe is no exception! I’ve been drinking matcha for about a year and a half now (since I quit coffee) and I recently started adding cacao which has been a total game-changer. I won’t lie, I still dabble in coffee from time to time, but I…
Smoothies & Superfood Drinks
Strawberry Basil Margarita Smoothie
It’s June, and you know what June means? Fresh strawberries and fresh basil! This recipe was a total no-brainer because it combines two of my favorite spring specialties, for a refreshing seasonal beverage. This Strawberry Basil Margarita Smoothie is great two ways: made virgin-style for a delicious light breakfast, or with a splash of tequila…

Salted Cacao Vegan Hot Chocolate (Sugar-Free)
Ya’ll know I love all things chocolate. And since it’s the middle of winter, it just wouldn’t be right if I didn’t post a vegan hot chocolate recipe. I love a good, thick hot chocolate but it’s hard to find recipes that don’t call for a ton of sugar. So I created this one to…
Bourbon Cacao Vegan Milk Punch
Boozy. Creamy. Chocolate-y. Nutmeg-y. Holiday-y. Okay, I’m making up words now, but you get the point. This drink has everything you would want in a holiday cocktail, all rolled into one. BOURBON CACAO VEGAN MILK PUNCH. I used to make a vegan Bailey’s for the holidays every year, but since I stopped drinking coffee, I needed…
Emerald Energy Elixir
With the weather heating up as we transition into summer, I’ve been craving ice cold drinks in the morning. While I love cold brew coffee or iced tea, I find that I never seem to remember to get them going at night, leaving me with nothing ready to go in the mornings. I love this elixir recipe because it doesn’t require any heating over the stove, meaning I can throw it together in just a few minutes before work in the morning. Throw the ingredients in a blender and you’re done!
Vegan Strawberries & Cream Latte
Hellooo coffee lovers! I love coffee too, but you’ll almost never see me at the coffee shop, and here’s why. As a vegan, I struggle to enjoy drinking coffee out because most places only have soy milk or water-y artificially flavored nut milks as the only non-dairy options. Sure, it’s fun to go out with the girls for a coffee, but the milk options never taste good or blend in coffee, and I have to deal with those weird side-eye looks when the soy milk starts to separate and curdle…(vegans, you know what looks I’m talking about.)
Cinnamon Coffee Smoothie
After a morning workout, this smoothie totally hits the spot.
CINNAMON COFFEE SMOOTHIE INGREDIENTS:
- 6 oz unsweetened almond milk (I use Pacific Foods organic.)
- 2 oz home-made cold brew coffee concentrate (I use…
