I wanted a purple smoothie after watching @planetumoja sip on one this morning. So here we have a maqui PB smoothie:

3 dates
2 frozen bananas
1 tsp. maca
2 tbsp. creamy unsalted peanut butter
1 cup water
1 tbsp. maqui powder (from @nature.restore)

Blend until smooth. X

Let me feed you: Chia Hemp Pudding with Açaí Sorbet, PB, Macadamia Nuts + Frozen Blueberries.

You have to really love hemp to appreciate this pudding. It has a very distinct flavor. Many folks who are new to this lifestyle may not like it. But it’s oh-so good for you. And once you get the hang of introducing new nourishing foods into your regimen things like hemp begin to taste gooooood.

Chia Hemp Pudding

Ingredients:

1 cup spring water
¼ cup chia seeds
3 tbsp hemp seeds
1 tbsp almond butter
1-2 tbsp maple syrup (depending on how sweet you like it)

Blend the water, hemp seeds, almond butter and syrup until frothy. Pour hemp mylk into a bowl and add chia seeds. Whisk until incorporated and allow to sit for 5 minutes. Whisk again and transfer to a serving cup. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.

For açaí ice cream I simply blended 2 scoops (about 1 cup) of Açaí Roots sorbet with 1 tbsp of peanut butter. Next, I folded in about ½ cup of frozen blueberries. I then topped the açaí sorbet over the chia pudding and sprinkled chopped macadamias.

While using avocado directly on the face is a popular natural beauty treatment, many people have found that just eating avocado regularly can do wonders for their complexion. Avocados are rich in healthy fatty acids, vitamins and antioxidants that can improve your skin from the inside.

Here’s one of our favorite recipes: Creamy Avocado Pasta, Yum!

Avocados add a silky consistency and cheese-like richness to this dairy-free pesto recipe. Ready in only 15 minutes!
