I made this great smoothie up in a flash and I just LOVE how it helped get my choco fix in and what it did to my brain. I have the He Shou Wu to thank for that!

I am always looking for special food that will make me feel like the powerful woman I know I am, and this drink is definitely that in a bottle, POWER!

It has a refreshing taste to it and is loaded with calcium because of the carob and phytonutrients and antioxidants because of the purple corn. When adding carob to your recipes, make sure you look for the raw, organic kind. This way you are getting all the taste without giving up the nutrients. I also opted for apricots instead of the dates to give a little sweetness to it. It is a great alternative and isn’t loaded with carbs and calories. I used raspberries, but you should definitely listen to your body and add ONE fruit that you love.

1 cup coconut water
1/2 cup raspberries
1/4 teaspoon blue corn
2 dried apricots
1 tablespoon carob powder
1/4 teaspoon He Shou Wu

Blend all together and enjoy!

J’ai préparé ce super-smoothie dans un instant et j’ADORE qu’il m’ait permis d’avoir ma dose de chocolat ET a réveillé mon cerveau! Ça c’est grace au He Shou Wu.

Je suis régulièrement à la recherche de nouvelle bouffe qui me permettra de ressentir la femme de pouvoir que je sais que je suis. Cette boisson est certainement cela, le POUVOIR en bouteille!

Il a un petit goût rafraichissant et est rempli de calcium (à cause du carob) et de phyto-nutriments et antioxidants (à cause du maïs mauve). Lorsque vous ajoutez du carob à vos recettes, assurez-vous de choisir une marque biologique et crue. De cette façon, vous profiterez pleinement du goût et vous bénéficierez de nutriments de qualité. Pour sucrer le tout, j’ai aussi choisi des abricots au lieu des dates. C’est une belle alternative qui offre plusieurs bénéfices avec moins de calories et glucides. Comme fruit, j’ai ajouté des framboises. Je vous recommande d’être à l’écoute de votre corps et d’ajouter UN fruit de votre choix.

1 tasse eau de coco
1/2 tasse de framboises
1/4 c.à.thé de maïs bleu
2 apricots séchés
1 c.à.table de poudre de caroube
1/4 c.à.thé de He Shou Wu

Mélanger tous les ingrédients et savourez!

Coconut, Nut And Seed Butter

Written by Isabelle Giroux ND on . Posted in Blog, Healthy Living, Recipes

Are you a nut and seed lover? Nut and seed butters are a wonderful way to get your proteins. Plus if you are careful about what is found in your food, you will love this easy, one step recipe that applies to all nuts and seeds.

Instead of running out to the store to buy one of those unhealthy nut butters or still yet, a really healthy one that is so very expensive, know you can actually transform all your favorite nuts and/or seeds into a yummy, healthy to hassle butter.

Today I chose to go with coconut. I bought a huge bag of Prana organic coconut shreds because I love it so much. Aside it being crazy yummy, here are some great benefits of coconut.

Coconut, that’s it!
You can use any quantity you wish, just know that it will reduce as it turns into butter.


1- Add small coconut pieces or shreds into a a food processor and mix for a few minutes. Wait a few moments and mix again.

2- Be patient, it take a while for the mixture to become creamy and butter like.

3- Pour into a jar and use on EVERYTHING!!!


One small side note: because it is coconut, it will harden a bit once the mixture cools. You may want to heat it a bit before spreading. This is also why it’s so great to mix in with other nuts or some organic cocoa when mixing in the food processor. If you mix cocoa and coconut, you will get a chocolate-coconut spread that melts when you add it to a hot, organic and healthy toast!

Other ideas include mixing almonds in your food processor to create almond butter. Or how about some almonds, cashews and cocoa! Maybe some hazel nuts, cocoa and coconut!!!

Whatever you choose to mix, when you add a bit of coconut, you know you are getting something healthy!

Do you have some great nut/seed mixing combinations to share? Please comment and share below, we all would love to hear all about them!
