Turmeric Ginger Bone Broth Smoothie Bowl

This Whole30 and paleo Turmeric Ginger Bone Broth Smoothie Bowl is low in sugar, packed with gut healing nutrients, and so thick and yummy. 

Turmeric Ginger Bone Broth Smoothie Bowl

I know what you are thinking. Bone broth in a smoothie?? What in the actual eff…

I know, I know. But you gotta have some trust because this smoothie bowl is seriously delicious and you cannot taste the bone broth at all.

With all the holiday stress and treats over the past few weeks, my gut is in need of some quality nutrients and healing so I’ve been trying to incorporate as much bone broth into my diet as possible. While this can mean drinking it straight up or incorporating them into soup recipes, I decided to get a bit more creative by making this Turmeric Ginger Bone Broth Smoothie Bowl.

Not only is this Turmeric Ginger Bone Broth Smoothie Bowl full of nourishing nutrients from the bone broth, both turmeric and ginger are anti-inflammatory and are known superfoods that soothe digestion and immune boosters.

Best of all, this recipe is sweetened and thickened with a cooked sweet potato and I did not find that I needed to add any additional sweeteners, making it Whole30 and sugar detox friendly. However, if you are looking for a bit more sweetness, you can add some honey.

If you are looking to switch up your breakfast routine with a healthy and delicious smoothie, I hope you give this recipe a try. Have fun customizing with your favorite toppings as well. I sprinkled in some frozen blueberries, toasted coconut chips, sliced almonds, and some almond butter, and it was dang tasty!

Paleo Gingerbread Pancakes

Oh man, guys… I have the perfect Christmas brunch recipe for you and I’ve made it 3 times already since last week because it’s that good. These Paleo Gingerbread Pancakes are just the dreamiest and the fluffiest, and the cinnamon-y, ginger-y flavor will make you feel so warm and festive with the holiday spirit.

Not only that, it’s super easy to make using just a blender to make the batter, so it’s pretty quick to pull together if you want to feed a group. And each person can customize with whatever toppings that they like!

I topped mine with almond butter, sliced almonds, a little bit of maple syrup, and cinnamon. But you can add berries, yogurt, jam, granola, or even ice cream for some extra decadence. If you are looking for something simpler, the batter contains a banana so it’s already slightly sweet so it’s delicious on its own.

Hope you enjoy these yummy, fluffy Paleo Gingerbread Pancakes to celebrate your holiday mornings!

Pink Beet Latte

If you are a fan of beets, you’ll fall in love with this delicious and naturally sweet beet latte! 

Paleo Vegan Beet Latte

Happy Friday, you beautiful souls! It’s about to get REAL over here, because I’m picking my parents up from the airport today, and then we are headed to Mexico on Sunday to start my wedding week. I’m so excited, but to be honest, I’ve been quite stressed out with some last minute planning and scrambling.

I think I’ll be in a much better state once we are there and enjoying the sun and the beach. However, with the amount of cortisol I’ve been dealing with, my liver needs some extra love these days. And the best way to do that? Enter the beet.

Paleo Vegan Beet Latte

Beets are so high in antioxidants, and have the power to eliminate toxins from the liver and improve the digestion of fats. I’ve been a fan for a long time, and when I tried out a beet latte at a LA coffeeshop a few weeks back, I knew I had to recreate it at home!

I was skeptical about the combination of beet and milk at first, but I’m quite obsessed with how decadent, creamy, and naturally sweet this pink beet latte tastes. And the gorgeous color just can’t be beat (or beet?)!

I have talked about in the past that I like to give up coffee for a week about once every month because I hate feeling like I’m addicted to or dependent on any one food. Well, this beet latte is a delicious substitute during those times and I still feel like I’m enjoying a hot yummy drink, without feeling deprived. Plus, I love that it’s doing the opposite of coffee: nourishing my liver and digestion instead of taxing it.

If you never tried beet latte before and are totally weirded out by it, I encourage you to try it! I think you’ll be surprised how yummy it tastes, and your body will love you for it.
