Nut milks are a delicious and sustaining food. They are also extremely versatile - as a dairy alternative in a cup of coffee, over cereal, or with flavors or fruit in an incredible ‘milkshake’.

Deluxe Green Power Smoothie

This is a classic green smoothie souped-up with extra protein, minerals and fat for a more sustaining energy and complete meal. Add any extra greens desired. The sharper flavor of greens like kale will be hidden under the protein powder. Other popular additions include fruit, super foods like maca and lucuma powder, seaweeds, nut milk, flax and chia seeds.

Classic Green Smoothie

Other greens can be substituted for romaine - particularly the milder greens like red leaf lettuce, beet greens and spinach. Mint and parsley are also delicious additions.

Almond Chocolate Berry Shake

The key to making this a really great milkshake is in adjusting the balance of the berries, chocolate and sweetness to your palate. The stevia will bring out the chocolate flavor, and the salt will give the chocolate depth.

Homemade Pesto

Homemade pesto is a great kitchen staple. Use this vibrant condiment for pasta, sandwiches, wraps and more. Pesto freezes well too, so make a double batch and freeze some for later!

Mineralizing Tooth Powder

Tooth powder was popular years ago, before toothpaste came into fashion. I was skeptical, but my mouth and teeth have never felt better. Activated charcoal whitens teeth and can be added to the powder or kept separate. Some rinse with ½ teaspoon of charcoal mixed in water after brushing, holding the mixture in front of their teeth for a few minutes before rinsing.
