I wanted to make something festive and of course something that tastes delicious and would be fun to make in a punch bowl or just for some family. I found organic pomegranate juice at Trader Joes after fresh pressing it for the event so I would recommend buying that. Has anyone ever tried juicing a fresh pom? Not only is it time-consuming but it is so dang messy, I hope you enjoy and make sure to take you activated charcoal!
As I was writing my hangover + holiday drinking guides (your signed up to my newsletters, right?) Link is here if not. I thought I should include some healthy drink options that are low sugar and seasonal. This recipe is made with a persimmon syrup and organic Hope vodka. Make sure you always take your activated charcoal when drinking or eat foods that upset your gut.
This drink is creamy and decadent and made with Guayaki yerba mate which makes it not just any hot cocoa. I loaded it up with coconut milk and spices to increase the absorption of antioxidants and minerals (yes healthy fats help with nutrient absorption).
The holidays shouldn’t be a time for guilt or sacrifice. They’re a time for love and celebration! Alcohol can be a vibrant part of this celebration, believe me, I love a good handmade cocktail (see below) and a big glass of (non-toxic) wine, but you have to drink the right stuff…
This recipe is my healthy festive holiday spin on the traditional Pumpkin Latte you see at places like Starbucks. The difference is my recipe does not contain added sugars (Starbucks is about 65 grams) and additives that leave you feeling horrible and add to weight gain and low energy. My recipe is an upgraded Bulletproof Coffee recipe with pumpkin and spices that are packed with nutrients like beta-carotene, vitamin A, and antioxidants that help with brain function and boost energy, plus it tastes delicious!
Since I love experimenting and I love Guayaki Yerba Mate, I decided to try this out, and boy was I surprised with how yummy it turned out. Plus, kombucha is so pricey for what they actually are ingredient wise, it is cheap to make at home!
Well, this drink is a spin on the "master cleanse" which is a alkalizing detox drink that I use during the week, in my resets or when I want to get my body back into balance. If you want to check out the non- boozy one here is the recipe.

It is officially caliente outside, all the windows are wide open and those fans are spinning. I decided to make my morning hot bulletproof a little more weather appropriate. You can also blend it to make it a coffee milk shake aka "frappuccino," fancy right?
I worked on this recipe all summer last year, I needed to replicate what I was tasting in juice bars in order to create "mint chocolate chip" but healthy of course. After working at Rancho La Puerta and completing their summer juice and smoothie menu, I realized I couldn't get the flavor profile I wanted without the banana and date combo. Try this on a summer day, and boy does it take you back to the good ol minty chocolate ice cream, but WAY healthier of course.
Who doesn’t love a deliciously sweet warm beverage on a cold winter’s day? It’s that time of year where the big chains and local coffee shops alike add some of our favorite seasonal drinks to their menu, and while we’re all about the occasional indulgence (we’re only human, after all), you might not realize...
Do you ever brew too much yerba mate? Don't want to waste it or know how to use it? Or maybe you want to get creative with how to use mate besides drinking it on its own? Mate tastes great when blended with fruits, veggies, and other nourishing ingredients. This nutrient packed smoothie will
