Just imagine enjoying a delicious latte and chocolate bark while decorating the Christmas tree, for brunch on Christmas morning, or while opening gifts!

We have these sort of traditions in our house, that the kids look forward to and enjoy!

Celebrate the holiday season with these fantastic and good for you recipes.  These recipes everyone can enjoy; kids, adults, friends, and family.  No coffee, no alcohol; good for the heart, soul, body and mind.




No Coffee Eggnog Late



If any of your holiday memories involve a giant punch bowl filled with eggnog, then you’ll love our modern take on a nostalgic recipe. This drink is downright velvety thanks to a base of almond milk and coffee-spiked superfood creamer. Next we whisk in delicious ingredients like coconut milk (or unsweetened creamer, if you prefer), cinnamon, vanilla beans, and of course, egg yolks. Bring all ingredients to a simmer, start your playlist, and get ready to toast the season with some delightful, dairy-free cheer.

Fermented Maca Chocolate Bark



Sure, you can stash this chocolate bark in the fridge if there are any leftovers, but be prepared for this treat to fly off the tray! Here’s why: goji berries and cranberries lend a little sweetness, almonds and pecans add crunch, and there’s even a fermented, superfood boost from maca powder that melts into a luscious cacao base. This vegan and gluten-free dessert is made for sharing, but we completely approve of keeping it all for yourself, too.
Have you ever heard of maca?  It’s in a powder form and it’s an adaptogen.  It’s a member of the cruciferous family, like broccoli and cabbage, and is considered one of the world’s perfect super foods!  It’s not only a natural source of healing nutrition but it’s touted to being a safe super food that is consumed for its healing benefits.
Maca’s numerous benefits include…
Hormone balance in both men and women
Immune system boosting
Increased energy and stamina
Enhanced sexual function
Increased memory and focus
