Acai Ice Pops

Acai Ice Pops

Acai Ice Pops are a refreshing naturally sweetened guilt free treat. The Açaí (ah-sigh-EE) berry is the fruit of the Açaí palm tree. It is naturally low in sugar so you can add all the  sweetness you would like with honey (or agave for our vegan friends out there), fresh fruit and berries. Acai is also a great source of fiber, heart-healthy fats, and antioxidants – so eat up! Acai Bowls There are so many different combinations of ingredients you can use to make your acai pops, the options are unlimited. Here is a basic recipe to start with. 1 pack acai puree (or 2 tsp of acai powder with 3-4 crushed ice cubes) 1 cup of organic frozen mixed berries 1 banana (frozen works best) 1/2 cup soy / rice / nut milk 1 tbsp honey, agave or maple syrup for vegans Instructions and Tips Acai is easy to find, easy to buy, and easy to keep: it comes in powder or frozen packs. When using the powder you will want to add a few ice cubes (about 3-4 for every 2 teaspoon of powder) Add coconut water, nut milk or juice along with your favorite veggies and fruits. Blend until it is the consistency of soft serve ice cream. Pour into ice pop molds and freeze overnight   Enjoy at your next BBQ or on a sunny...

Bright and Beautiful Beet Soup Shooters

Bright and Beautiful Beet Soup Shooters

I love to serve these Beet Soup Shooters in clear individual shot glasses to show off the vibrant color. This bright and delicious soup is sure to impress your guests because they taste as good as they look. First things first, get out your rubber gloves! Beet juice is beautiful but you don’t want to get it on your hands or your clothes. 1lb (about 3) medium red beets ¼ cup fresh carrot juice ¼ cup fresh lemon juice ¼ cup celery juice 1 tsp kosher salt 4-6 oz. individual size Plain Greek yogurt Micro celery leaves Wash and dry 3 medium red beets (you can buy pre-roasted beets or roast the beets the day before if you like). Wrap individually in aluminum foil and slow roast with the skin on @375 for 45min -1hr until soft in the middle when you stick with a sharp knife. Let cool in aluminum. Once cool – put on your gloves – open the aluminum and rub the skins off the exterior of each beat. Slice into large chunks to place into your food processor or blender along with the fresh carrot, lemon and celery juice. Blend into a fine puree – add a pinch of salt to bring out the natural sweetness of the beets. You may need to strain the mixture to achieve the smooth finished look.   Top with micro celery leaves and a touch of Plain Greek...
