Coconut-Almond Maca Latte

Coconut-Almond Maca Latte

 This drink is my new go-to. Creamy, comforting, and a little bit sweet, it hits all those spots in super healthy way. Plus I've added adaptogens to help your body manage the stress from a broken heart, cuz heartbreak puts some big ‘ole strain on the body.    All it takes is some heating and blending - so easy you could make it every day. And since it's caffeine-free, you can sip it in the afternoon or evening without worrying about disrupting your sleep. 

Simple Homemade Coconut Milk: 2 Ways

Simple Homemade Coconut Milk: 2 Ways

Homemade coconut milk is one of those, "Why didn't I know about this?" kinds of recipes. (And it's really more of just a series of a few steps than a recipe). I used to buy ready-to-drink coconut milk at the grocery store - you know, the kind that comes in a carton like regular cow's milk.  I even found one that was unsweetened, but it still had all kinds of preservatives and fillers, like carageenan (the research on carageenan is inconclusive, but suggests it may cause gastrointestinal distress, and we don't want that), and even more than that, it just didn't taste that good!  Enter these recipes. They come together in minutes, are cheaper than buying ready-to-drink coconut milk, you control what goes in it, and they taste better! Win!

Super Easy Coconut Milk Matcha Latte

Here it is! The perfect afternoon pick-me-up: Creamy, chock full of antioxidants, super easy, with a smooth little dose of caffeine that won't give you a big spike and crash.  (And you can easily dial up or dial back the caffeine by changing the amount of matcha used, without really affecting the taste of the drink).  The beauty is it's also super flexible. Feel like doing this, but not that? No problem. More sweet/less sweet, creamy/not so much, warm/cold, it's all good!  Bonus: unless someone knows just how easy this "recipe" actually is, it will totally impress your co-workers/instagram followers/house-guests. But that's not why you'll make it, again and again. That will happen because it's just that good. And so green!
