Peach Tahini Smoothie

Drink

My favorite, and easiest, way to do a Whole30 approved breakfast is to make a simple smoothie. I have a go-to recipe for sure, but it’s key to mix things up during the month if you find yourself tiring of routine.

Smoothies are my favorite because you can pack all of your nutrients in an easily digested drink while not sacrificing flavor. You’re also getting whole foods without any added sugar. This smoothie is made up of frozen peaches and bananas filled with Vitamin C and potassium. Hemp milk contains tons of protein and essential fatty acids. Tahini also contains healthy fats and minerals. Golden flax acts as a wonderful fiber with a toasted flavor. Collagen peptides add extra protein and provide gut-healing benefits while Ceylon cinnamon may actually help curb sugar cravings.

So what better way to enjoy and save seasonal fruits than to freeze them? This year I’m stocking up on local peaches for smoothies, jams, you name it. I’ve found the best way to store these in the freezer are by slicing them and popping them in a reusable Stasher bag. I use the same exact method for freezing my bananas, just peel dice and store. Super easy, affordable, and waste-free!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup frozen peaches
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 cup hemp milk (3 Tbsp hemp seeds + 1 cup filtered water)
  • 1 Tbsp tahini
  • 1 Tbsp golden flax
  • 1 scoop collagen peptides
  • 1 tsp. ceylon cinnamon

Rose Cacao Latte
This winter has been all about living that full-fat latte life! Is that a thing? Well if not, now it is. It's been way too cold for smoothies most mornings, but I've wanted to incorporate more supplements and herbs for immunity. In my mind, supplements are so difficult to remember if you're taking them in pill form. This is why I like incorporating them into my daily diet. This latte is packed full of nourishing fat from coconut butter for energy and fullness all morning long. My favorite part is that you can pre-pack it in a reusable Stasher Bag and take on the go. This makes it perfect for traveling or you can pre-pack it to make at ...

Ashwagandha Hot Cacao
The first time I tried Ashwagandha I hated it. It was one of the first adaptogens I bought. I kid you not, I thought in my head, "how do people drink this?" I was a little heartbroken because I spent a pretty penny on the good stuff, but I was determined to find a recipe I could enjoy it in after hearing about its benefits. Ashwagandha literally translates to, "the smell and strength of a horse" and referred to as "Indian Ginseng." I can truthfully say it does smell a bit like horse hair. But, it does also have the incredible strength of one as well. Adaptogens are such powerful little herbs and I can't get enough of them. Ashwagandha, in ...
