Superfood Smoothies
I made a light berry inspired mousse with the magical ingredient Irish Moss. Its amazing. Irish moss is a seaweed that once soaked and blended well into a mixture can cut down the fat portion of your dessert. It has a gelatinous consistency and allows the dessert to hold its form. To make a mousse like I did you can avoid all nuts and use rice or oat milk in place of almond or cashew.

Planning to get outside and move that body this weekend? Fuel up with this all raw and organic energy drink developed by Amie Sue of Nouveau Raw! Why use dates and chia specifically? Dates are an amazing source of potassium to help balance out electrolyte levels. They offer a good source of naturally occuring fruit sugars which your body can immediately use for energy. Chia seeds offer an abundance of healthy efa's (omega 3's!) and complete protein to help the blood sugar remain stable. They've been utilized since the days of the ancient Aztecs as an incredible endurance food. This recipe is also super high in soluble fiber for a cleansing effect as well!
