The Morning Jumpstart

  • Spiced Cucumber & Apple Morning Boost – Start the day on an invigorating note with this lively blend of clementine, cucumbers, green apples and cayenne.
  • Fizz ‘N Fruit Energizer – This morning energizer awakens the senses with a spicy syrup featuring red pepper. Tart apple and refreshing cucumber muddled together balance out the hint of heat.
  • Apple-Cucumber Chilled Green Tea – Wake up to the sweet, refreshing flavor of this fruity morning green tea. You can make this the night before for an easy start to your day.

The Afternoon Pick-Me-Up

  • Smoky Avocado & Mushroom Drinkable Soup – Ripe avocado blended with cucumber and smoky crushed chipotle pepper creates a creamy, smooth soup base to pair with a sautéed oyster mushroom and pistachio topper.
  • Herbed Mushroom Sipping Broth with Avocado Oil Drizzle – A rich, filling broth made with fresh oyster mushrooms, seasoned with aromatic herbs like sage and thyme satisfies the soul. A drizzle of avocado oil provides a velvety finishing touch.
  • Roasted Vegetable Soup with Roasted Avocado – Look to this savory, warm soup for a nourishing afternoon snack. It’s full of flavorful ingredients like plum tomatoes and onion, then garnished with roasted avocado for a creamy finale.
  • Turmeric Golden Milk – With minimal effort, transform lite coconut milk into a colorful pick-me-up beverage. A combination of turmeric, pumpkin pie spice and vanilla strikes the perfect balance in this warm and comforting drink.

The Evening Elixir

  • Pineapple Turmeric Mocktail with Muddled Dandelion Greens – Muddle up a mocktail with fresh pineapple, ginger, turmeric and dandelion greens, then add a splash of sparkling water for a rebalancing evening drink.
  • Pineapple Mead Sangria – Sangria gets extra-rich flavor from the addition of mead, also known as honey wine.  A dandelion greens and turmeric mixture balances the sweetness of this tasty refresher.
  • Ginger, Turmeric and Beet Sipping Elixir – End the day with a tangy sipping vinegar enhanced with beet juice, ginger, turmeric, and cardamom that is best enjoyed over ice.
  • Carrot Ginger-Tini – This martini looks as good as it tastes! Fresh carrot juice and ginger bring vibrant color and warm flavor to this replenishing evening drink that can easily go from cocktail to mocktail. Make the ginger syrup ahead for a quicker prep time.
