Fruity Tropical Whip

July 19th, 2018 | no comments

It’s really hard to believe this recipe has no added sugar! Just four simple ingredients: mango, pineapple, banana, and coconut milk. In just minutes you will have a cool fruity treat (worth two Earthfood servings ♥♥) to enjoy on a hot summer’s day.

Just a note worth mentioning: If you look at the Nutrition Facts at the bottom of the page, you’ll notice that each serving has 22 grams of sugar. Although this comes from natural fruit sugar, you’ll still want to watch that you don’t overindulge because your blood sugar will rise. The addition of unsweetened canned coconut milk in this recipe, which is very rich in healthy fat, will buffer the effects of the sugar a bit.

I like Native Forest Simple Organic Unsweetened Coconut Milk because it contains no additives and just one ingredient: organic coconut milk. 

It’s best to treat your Fruity Tropical Whip as a dessert after a meal and don’t eat it right before bed! Oh…and savor every last bite. 🙂

Tropical Turmeric Shake

May 10th, 2018 | no comments

A well-balanced and satisfying shake contains five main ingredients:

  1. A liquid base
  2. Healthy protein
  3. Healthy fat
  4. Veggies and fruit
  5. Functional foods

My Tropical Turmeric Shake uses unsweetened coconut milk as the liquid base, hemp hearts for protein, avocado and MCT oil for healthy fat, fresh kale, lime, mango, and pineapple for veggies and fruit, and fresh turmeric and ginger for functional foods. 

It’s loaded with tons of healing Earthfoods (six servings to be exact). Drink it for breakfast or lunch and I promise you will feel on top of the world!

Tropical Turmeric Shake
My shakes are not sweet...and that's by design! This is something I had to work on decreasing little by little over the years. If you are just getting started and would prefer your shake a little on the sweeter side, try adding an extra serving of fruit or one teaspoon of raw honey. This recipe is gluten, dairy, and grain free. 6 Earthfoods per serving: ♥♥♥♥♥♥
