There are few things I love more when the weather cools down than homemade hot cocoa. Homemade hot cocoa could not be easier and this festive twist on my classic hot chocolate recipe adds in the flavors of a holiday favorite — candy canes.
I love green smoothies. They appeal to my lazy side because I can get my veggie in without having to think much about what I’m eating. At the same time, making sure I have fresh greens in the house and getting them prepped for a smoothie. Honestly, sometimes all that prep work makes me just choose another (usually less-healthy) snack. These green smoothie cubes are the perfect solution and a major time-saver. You can prepare all your greens for the week at the same time and have them all ready to go when you need them.
There’s something so refreshing about fruit infused water. This Blackberry Mint Sparkling Water is perfect for entertaining or simply as a way to make drinking water a little more exciting. There’s no added sugar in this (although you could certainly sweeten it up a bit with a bit of liquid stevia or sugar if you wanted) and the flavor in this is amazing!
Chia seeds are an great source of omega-3 fats and fiber. These tiny seeds pack an amazing nutritional punch and they are also easy to add to your diet. They have a great texture when added to liquids, which is why you’ve probably seen some chia seed drinks pop up in your local health store. Those are delicious but pricey. Fortunately, you can make your own and they are incredibly easy.
