Blend all ingredients except chocolate chips, mix chocolate chips after blending. Form into balls and chill for one hour.

1 cup of raw cashews
1 cup of almond meal
1 cup of oats
1 cup of coconut oil
1 tsp. of vanilla extract
2 scoops of Complete Pea Protein in the Delicious Chocolate Flavor
8-10 pitted dates
1 tsp. of honey
1 cup of dark chocolate chips
To finish: Sprinkle with Himalayan sea salt

This recipe is high in protein, full of antioxidants, good fats & has no added sugar!

The flavonoids in dark chocolate help reduce insulin resistance by helping your cells to function normally and regain the ability to use your body's insulin efficiently. Dark chocolate also has a low glycemic index, meaning it won't cause huge spikes in blood sugar levels.

Raw almonds are filled with healthy fats. While they do contain a small amount of saturated fat, most of the fat in almonds is monounsaturated fat, which is known for its ability to promote healthy cholesterol levels and cardiovascular health.

The medium chain triglycerides in coconut oil have been shown to increase 24 hour energy levels by as much as 5%, which can lead to significant weight loss over the long term.

The health benefits of coconut oil include hair care, skin care, stress relief, cholesterol level maintenance, weight loss, boosted immune system, proper digestion and regulated metabolism. It also provides relief from kidney problems, heart diseases, high blood pressure, diabetes, HIV, and cancer, while helping to improve dental quality and bone strength. These benefits of oil can be attributed to the presence of lauric acid, capric acid and caprylic acid, and their respective properties, such as antimicrobial, antioxidant, anti-fungal, antibacterial and soothing qualities.

Complete Pea Protein is a 100% VEGAN protein source made from North American grown yellow peas. Complete Pea Protein is a natural, non-GMO, pea protein which offers a high quality vegetable based protein with excellent digestibility.

This protein is ideal for those who are looking for a high quality vegetarian/vegan protein powder or for those interested in a dairy-free alternative to whey protein.
Complete Pea Protein has an amino acid profile that is similar to that of whey protein. Its well-balanced profile fulfills the essential amino acid requirements often missing in the lower protein, vegetarian diet.

Further Benefits of Peas:
Pea protein may have a positive effect on the maintenance of normal blood pressure levels and has also been shown, in animal studies, to have a positive impact on total cholesterol levels.

Chocolate covered Coconut Balls!

We focus on using healthy ingredients in our recipes!

Some health benefits of the ingredients are:

Coconuts are a SUPERFOOD! They help keep your immune system healthy, aid in weight loss, help to control blood sugar and pressure and taste delicious!

Shredded coconut is a source of unrefined coconut oil, which offers such health benefits as increasing your metabolism rate and keeping your hormones balanced.

Raw whey protein is an excellent source of Cysteine, the precursor of Glutathione which is the most abundant anti-oxidant in the body that protects us from damage due to toxins and free radicals.  

Raw Whey Protein contains Cysteine which in turn contains sulphur which means that cysteine can bind to toxins and ship them to the liver where the liver can further detoxify and eliminate those toxins.

Raw Whey Protein can help replace fat with lean muscle which leads to a higher metabolism and increased energy.

Xylitol Aids Weight Loss!
There are many different strategies for weight control. Xylitol fits neatly into most of them. Xylitol slows stomach-emptying and its low glycemic index and mostly insulin-independent metabolism makes it ideal for maintaining steady levels of insulin and blood sugar. This increases satiety and reduces bingeing.

Xylitol is incompletely absorbed, and only a portion of what is absorbed slowly converts to glucose. An important added bonus of xylitol metabolism is the activation of the glutathione antioxidant system which helps to squelch free radicals generated by heavy exercise, thereby reducing oxidative damage to muscle and blood cells. Because xylitol is efficiently and steadily converted to glucose (energy) and glycogen (storage) it may be particularly useful when coupled with other carbohydrates for recovery after heavy exercise. Likewise, it may be valuable for carbohydrate loading (super-compensating) by packing glycogen after a depletion phase.


Pure Maple Syrup is a natural heart healthy sweetener containing zinc and manganese which also help keep your immune system healthy.

Himalayan sea salt
Commercial refined salt is not only stripped of all its minerals, besides sodium and chloride, but is also chemically cleaned, bleached and heated at unnecessary high temperatures.
Because of these minerals Himalayan pink salt can:
    •    Create an electrolyte balance
    •    Increases hydration
    •    Regulate water content both inside and outside of cells
    •    Balance pH (alkaline/acidity) and help to reduce acid reflux
    •    Prevent muscle cramping
    •    Aid in proper metabolism functioning
    •    Strengthen bones
    •    Lower blood pressure
    •    Help the intestines absorb nutrients
    •    Prevent goiters
    •    Improve circulation
    •    Dissolve and eliminate sediment to remove toxins


It is even said to support libido, reduce the signs of aging, and detoxify the body from heavy metals.

Homemade Coconut Matcha Ice Cream October 29, 2016 08:13

Homemade Coconut Matcha Ice Cream

Make your own creamy Green Tea ice cream packed full of healthy fats, immune building amino acids and healthy antioxidants! This recipe is so easy to make!

Blend all ingredients and freeze overnight:

1 can of coconut cream (we like Trader Joe's)

1 avocado

2 scoops (1/4 cup) of Complete Whey Protein in the Creamy Vanilla flavor

4 tsp. of Matcha Green Tea powder

4 Tbsp. of Xylitol (for sweetness)

1 tsp. of Pure Vanilla extract

Dash of Himalayan Sea Salt

Squeeze of lemon juice

Benefits of the ingredients in this recipe:

Green Tea contains the antioxidant EGCG which causes your body to produce heat increasing your metabolism which burns off your body fat.

EGCG Health Benefits include Weight Loss!
Obesity has risen to epidemic proportions in many Western countries. EGCG may help you lose weight via three main mechanisms:
    •    Higher Metabolism
    •    Higher Fat Burning
    •    Reduced Fat Storage

Green tea has strong anti-inflammatory properties and thereby decreases arterial inflammation which decreases the chances of sticky build up on the artery walls. This could also lower blood pressure as it eases the heart’s task of pumping blood through less inflamed arteries.

Green Tea causes carbohydrates to be released slowly, preventing rises in blood-insulin levels and this also causes your body to burn fat. In addition to burning fat, green tea lowers cholesterol, prevents diabetes, stroke and dementia. 

Coconut cream is a good fat full of lauric acid which boosts immunity and speeds up your metabolism. When lauric acid (in coconut cream) converts to monolaurin (an anti-viral, antibacterial, and antiprotozoal monoglyceride), it boosts your immune system and defends your body against many viruses. Coconut cream also improves digestion and bowel function and helps speed up your metabolism.

Avocado is rich in monounsaturated (good) fats which can reverse insulin resistance and help to regulate blood sugar levels. Perhaps the biggest health benefit of avocados is that by adding avocado to certain foods, you can improve your absorption of nutrients. This means that when you combine other fat burning foods with avocado, you can improve your nutrient absorption up to 400%!

Xylitol is like sugar, except good for you. While sugar wreaks havoc on the body, xylitol heals and repairs. It also builds immunity, protects against chronic disease & has anti-aging benefits. Xylitol is a great sugar substitute that breaks down in the body slower without causing sugar spikes. This is an ideal sweetener for Diabetics. You can find Xylitol at Sprouts and Market Street.

If you could design a perfect protein for the human body it would closely resemble Complete Whey Protein with all of the amino acids that your body needs to function at its best. Your body will love it!

Change this to a Paleo recipe and sub Complete Paleo Protein for Whey Protein!

Pumpkins are a low calorie vegetable full of nutrients like vitamin-A, vitamin-C and vitamin-E, copper, calcium, potassium and phosphorus.

Ceylon cinnamon has anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antioxidant, anti-tumor and immune boosting effects.

Raw Whey Protein is great for muscle building, fat loss, energy, post-workout recovery and immune boosting.

The cacoa found in dark chocolate is full of antioxidants like resveratrol which helps prevent damage to blood vessels, reduces "bad" cholesterol and prevents blood clots. Serotonin, a natural antidepressant, is also found in dark chocolate.

When lauric acid (in coconut cream) converts to monolaurin (an anti-viral, antibacterial, and antiprotozoal monoglyceride), it boosts your immune system and defends your body against many viruses. Coconut cream also improves digestion and bowel function and helps speed up your metabolism.

Avocado is a superfood rich in vitamins, anti-inflammatory properties and monounsaturated fats that are good for your heart! The heart-healthy monounsaturated fat in avocados accelerates metabolism and increases satiety which can help you lose belly fat.    

We used 100% cocao which is full of healthy antioxidants like resveratrol. This is a no bake recipe so all the phytonutrients in the cocao are intact. 100% cocao contains at least 20+ nutrients and antioxidants that help reverse heart disease, naturally lower blood pressure and enhances your mood- not to mention tastes delicious!

Chia Seed Pudding with fresh berries

We had this nutrient packed snack before grilling out later tonight. Chia Seeds contain complex carbohydrates that are absorbed slowly and metabolized over a long time so you feel satisfied for longer periods of time.

Keeping balanced levels of blood sugar is important for both health and energy. Both the gelling action of the seed, and it’s unique combination of soluble and insoluble fiber combine to slow down your body’s conversion of starches into sugars. If you eat chia with a meal, it will help you turn your food into constant, steady energy rather than a series of ups and downs that wear you out.

We also added a scoop of Creamy Vanilla Complete Whey Protein powder. Raw whey protein is an excellent source of cysteine, the precursor of Glutathione which is the most abundant anti-oxidant in the body that protects us from damage due to toxins and free radicals.

Fresh berries and walnuts finish out this SUPER FOOD recipe with added vitamins and anti-oxidants!

Chia Seed Pudding with fresh berries

8 oz. Homemade Almond Milk

1-2 scoops of Complete Whey Protein Creamy Vanilla Flavor

4 Tablespoons of chia seeds

raw walnuts

Instructions for Homemade Almond Milk:

1. Soak raw almonds in filtered water overnight

2. Rinse almonds

3. Blend with 8 oz. fresh filtered water

4. Strain out liquid from almond pulp (save the pulp for breakfast, sprinkle on fresh fruit)

Instructions for Chia Seed Pudding:

1. Combine the chia seeds and almond milk. Let sit for at least 15 minutes or place overnight in the refrigerator ready for breakfast the next morning. The chia seeds will absorb the almond milk and swell creating a consistency much like tapioca pudding.

2. Stir in 2 scoops of Complete Whey Protein Creamy Vanilla Flavor

3. Add in xylitol if you want extra sweetness

4. Sprinkle with Ceylon cinnamon

5. Add in raw walnuts and raisins

Who doesn't love candy? We love sweet treats but hate the effects of sugar, preservatives and artificial ingredients that often come along with our favorite sweet snack.

Homemade SUGAR FREE Almond Butter Cups

Melt 2- 8 oz. bars of unsweetened 100% cocoa in a double boiler

Add 1 Tablespoon of coconut oil into the melted chocolate for tempering

Add 4 Tablespoons of finely ground xylitol for sweetness (we used a mortar and pestle to grind the crystals into a fine powder)

Add a dash of Ceylon Cinnamon

Set aside to cool slightly.

In a separate bowl, mix 1 cup of raw Almond Butter (we used Trader Joe's raw almond butter which contains only raw almonds and no added sugar)

Mix in 2 scoops (approx. 1/2 cup) of Complete Whey Protein Creamy Vanilla Flavor (Use our Complete Paleo or Pea Proteins in the Creamy Vanilla flavor if you prefer)

Place cupcake papers into a muffin pan with 12 slots.

Pour the melted chocolate into each paper to cover the bottom. Use half of the melted dark chocolate mixture.

Distribute the almond butter and protein mixture into each paper cup until gone. Use approximately 1 Tablespoon for each paper cup.

Pour the remaining melted dark chocolate over the almond butter and protein mixture.

Place in freezer to set for at least 30 minutes.
