Wether you’re looking for a coffee alternative or a comforting drink for any time of the day this one will definitely do for both!

Turmeric lattes have become increasingly popular the past couple years. This warming drink originates in India where it’s traditionally consumed for its amazing health benefits. It contains spices such as turmeric, ginger, cinnamon and black pepper and has an intense earthy, spiced flavor!

Macs powder is known for it’s hormonal balancing properties and has a distinct caramel, malt-like flavor so it really goes well with the turmeric.

I don’t know about you but cauliflower is my favorite cruciferous vegetable because you can cook it in so many different ways and make it taste delicious!

This recipe is very simple and I make it here and there when I’m craving a salty, crunchy – but still healthy- snack.

You will create your sauce with tahini, lemon juice, water, turmeric and onion salt, pepper and garlic for taste!

Believe it or not these cauliflower bites taste and smell amazing! They are perfectly tender and a bit crunchy on the edges. They are garlicky, salty and slightly cheesy!

Make sure you try these! They are so good that you will have them all in one sitting!

The Best Spirulina Protein Smoothie

The Best Spirulina Protein Smoothie

I know so many people are not fans of spirulina due to it’s rather strong algae smell but it is so beneficial for our health, that is a sin not to include it to our diet. It is so easy to mask the flavor anyway so if you make my recipe you will end up loving too and making it more often!

For anyone unfamiliar with spirulina, it is an algae that has been consumed around the world for thousands of years due to its powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. It is one of the most nutritious foods on earth, containing vitamins B, iron, copper and being a complete protein since it contains all essential amino acids.

Now this smoothie is great because it’s sweet and sour, with lots of acidity from lemon juice and it’s more on the thinner side so it’s between a smoothie and a green juice.

You can not detect the spirulina taste or smell at all and it contains just to enough frozen banana to sweeten without being overly sweet. It also contains a good amount of frozen mango which gives it a tropical vibe and brightness. And it’s also made with coconut water so it’s super refreshing and hydrating. Another ingredient that I love adding to smoothies is maca. Here you can slightly taste its caramel like flavor but I mostly love to add it for its hormone balancing benefits. Lastly, it has a good amount of protein from both the spirulina and the hemp protein.

This smoothie is simple but tastes so good that will definitely make you change your mind about spirulina! It’s such an amazing superfood and so easy to add to smoothies! Give it a try!
