Probiotic Coconut Yogurt

Eat Herbs + Supplements Ovulatory Phase

I love coconut yogurt, but I lately it’s been breaking the bank for me. This recipe is super tasty and will save you tons if you’re a fanatic like myself. It’s truly as easy as mixing two ingredients! This particular version is super creamy and rich, which makes it a great topping for smoothies, breakfast bowls, and whatever else you can think up (check out this pumpkin loaf I topped it on)If you’re looking for a lighter option, try mixing up the coconut milk you’re working with. For instance, a reduced fat or regular can of coconut will yield thinner results. I’d love to hear some feedback on this one if you decide to do so! You can also use different brands and probiotics, these are just some of my favorite.

Ingredients
Make it

Empty can of coconut cream into a large glass bowl. Whip for a minute or two until consistent with a whisk. Empty both probiotic capsules into the cream and whisk again until thoroughly distributed. Empty mixture into a mason jar or small glass container. Cover with a thin dish towel to allow air out and in, while still blocking bugs. Fasten container with a rubber band. Let the mixture sit on the counter for 24-48 hours depending on how tangy you like it. I did 48 hours because I like more of robust yogurt taste. Refrigerate after the time is up to let thicken and chill. Enjoy!

Herbal Coffee Smoothie
Are you a coffee or a tea person? This question always stumps me. I used to always be a coffee person, but after switching to a less-caffeinated lifestyle, I became the biggest tea-fiend. If you're like me, you miss the taste and smell of coffee. Something about it smells like home. Last year, I found chicory coffee, and let me tell you it has been a game changer! Here's why: It's anti-inflammatory. Because it's made from chicory root instead of coffee beans, it's less acidic. There's zero caffeine! So unlike decaf coffee containing trace amounts of caffeine, you can be sure this is at zero. Chicory may also help decrease blood sugar l ...

Depression. Stress. Anxiety. I thought that I had dealt with my fair share of those three words in high school, but I truly did not experience them until college; until I was diagnosed with a chronic disease.

Everyone is completely different and unique, so please know that I value whatever route you decide to take for yourself.

Gluten-Free Pumpkin Pie Fat Balls
No food processor necessary. I repeat, NO FOOD PROCESSOR NECESSARY! Game changer happening over here. Have you ever seen a recipe you've really wanted to recreate but didn't have the necessary equipment? This happens to me all of the time, especially with the ever-popular energy/ fat balls. The only equipment needed for these babies includes a mixing bowl, a large fork, and your hands (bonus if you already have small parchment cups for chilling them). I don't know about you guys, but it feels like I've been overloaded with pumpkin recipes here and there. So I promise this is one of the last! (And one of the best in my personal opinion, w ...
