Congrats! You’ve made it through the first month of the new year and (for the most part) have stayed on track with your healthy resolutions. With a flip of the calendar however, the new month signifies chocolates and candy galore. Yep, you’ve guessed it: February. While completing Whole30, finishing dry January, or even just choosing healthier options is definitely worth celebrating, month two of 2018 has approached in full force – and while it may be short, it’s certainly filled with sweets.
It’s easy to say everything is fine in moderation, and the top of the food chart is definitely worth biting into every now and then. For other moments though when candy hearts fill grocery store aisles, take a page from the unofficial Chameleon Cold-Brew recipe book and craft treats that will help you stay fit through February.
Enjoy the month of pink everything with a fruit-filled latte recipe that keeps sugar levels low. Combined with the benefits of reishi powder, coconut oil, and the sweet taste of our vanilla cold-brew organic coffee concentrate, prepare to up your morning coffee game with a cup worth capturing on all social media platforms.
With only 28 days in this short month, make your weekend treats stand out and create something golden. With ingredients including hemp seeds, bee pollen, and a pinch of cayenne pepper, send those mid-winter inflammatory allergies a Valentine saying, “Thanks, but no thanks!”
Instead of digging into a heart-shaped box of chocolates, satisfy your sweet tooth with a healthy, cold brew alternative. Blend together our mocha organic cold-brew coffee concentrate with coconut milk, peanut butter, cacao powder and scoop of Vital Proteins for a dessert shake enjoyable for any time of day.
Looking to cook up a romantic breakfast in bed? The search stops here! Grab a bottle of our black organic cold-brew coffee concentrate and set aside time in the kitchen with ingredients that may be new to your counter – a.k.a. ashwagandha and cordyceps (don’t worry, we had to do some research as well.) Not only is this waffle recipe guilt-free, but the final product is quite a sight to admire before digging in.
Host the perfect #GalentinesDay party with a treat every guest will enjoy without worry: Cinnamon Fat Balls. Whip out a food processor (a blender can also work just fine!) and add our vanilla organic cold-brew concentrate with Philosophie superfood products, mixed in with a few other health-conscious ingredients. Once ready, serve these healthy sweets and watch them get devoured in seconds.
