More smoothies, less bloat

Summer time is here and we’ve got you covered with easy smoothie recipes to help you “cool” down. I like to make my smoothies as a breakfast replacement or in between my workouts. It’s totally guilt-free, vegan friendly, and full of plant based protein to keep you looking lean and most importantly feeling good!

Recipe 1: Apple Smoothie

RECIPE:

DIRECTIONS:

Slice an organic apple into pieces. Add to nutri-bullet blender. Then, pour 1 cup of Califia Farms unsweetened almond milk in and 1 scoop of Plant Fusion. Blend until smooth and enjoy.

P.S. Throw some ice in there for a thicker smoothie!

Recipe 2: Banana SunButter Smoothie

RECIPE:

DIRECTIONS:

Add 1 banana and blueberries, strawberries, and spinach if you’d like. Pour 1 cup of unsweetened Califia Farms almond milk, 1 scoop of Plant Fusion protein, and 1 teaspoon of SunButter. You get your daily dose of antioxidants, iron, and blueberries to help with memory improvement. Enjoy!

Califia expands to new heights

Califia Farms is expanding it’s selection from Cold Brew Coffee, Coffee Creamers, Juices, Plant Milks, and seasonal flavors like my favorite Pumpkin Spiced Latte. I hope they open a coffee shop next.

Seriously though, I have an unhealthy obsession with Califia’s XX Expresso Cold Brew Coffee and don’t worry they have everyone covered. You can pick from a wide array of coffee including Cocoa Noir Cold Brew Coffee, Mocha Mexica Cold Brew Coffee, Dirty Chai Cold Brew Coffee, Salted Caramel Cold Brew, Cafe Latte Cold Brew Coffee, and others.

The non-dairy industry is on the rise as more people consume less and less dairy. Califia makes a naturally good quality dairy-free blend of milks and coffee. It will leave you wanting more.  It’s non-grainy, fresh, smooth flavors are magnificently addicting!

Cheers, 2 thumbs up!

Scrambled, what? Scrambled Tofu!

Looking for an easy way to get your protein. Look no further. We got you covered. All you need is a block of tofu (Trader Joe’s), non-dairy milk, flax seeds (grounded) salt, pepper, turmeric, cayenne pepper, vegan cheese, and onions. Pairs perfectly with sauteed spinach, Ozery bakery’s morning rounds, and Freida’s organic polenta.

First, put the block of tofu in a bowl and add about 2 tablespoons of non-dairy milk (I use Califia Farms). Then, add the grounded flax seeds about 1 tablespoon, a dash of salt, pepper, cayenne, and turmeric and two slices of vegan friendly cheese. Chop the onion into small square like pieces, you should use about half of the onion, and then mix it all together.

Heat your pan with drizzled olive oil and then scoop the seasoned tofu into the pan. Mix thoroughly until the onions are translucent and the vegan cheese is fully melted. Getting hungry? You’re almost done. All you have to do now is scoop into your plate.
