Almost every function in our body, from digestion, to brain function, and respiratory health all rely on sufficient water to work properly. 60% of our body is comprised of water! Many find it less than enticing to reach for the plain stuff day in and day out, so we’ve come up with this simple, refreshing watermelon slushy to help keep you hydrated!
Summer fruit is the perfect choice for crumbles and cobblers alike. We’ve picked peaches and blueberries at their peak for this recipe. With the fruit in its prime, we didn’t need much sweetener to bring this dish to perfection, just whole, cleanse-approved ingredients. Try swapping out the fruit with a new seasonal pick each time you make it, and it’s sure to be a regular in your dessert (or breakfast) rotation year-round.
Cantaloupe has an unfair reputation as a fruit salad filler, it’s the melon we push around on our plates, preferring to stick our forks in blueberries and kiwi. Instead of casting cantaloupe off to the side, we gave it the starring role in a refreshing summer smoothie. Naturally sweet and ultra-hydrating, we’re going to be sipping this cantaloupe smoothie all season long.
These mini key lime pie desserts are much simpler to make than a traditional key lime pie but bursting with just as much flavor. They’re also vegan, gluten-free, and Clean Program-approved so these petite desserts can be enjoyed any time.
One of our favorite summertime treats is shaved ice. The juicy flavor, combined with a melt-in-your-mouth texture, is the best way to cool down on a hot day. Unfortunately, most of the shaved ice we can buy from a street vendor is drenched in a syrupy flavor concentrate. In fact, an 8-oz. cup of shaved ice contains a whopping 49 grams of sugar – more than a 12-oz. can of Coke! Luckily, it’s simple to make your own shaved ice at home with natural ingredients.
Our mango sticky rice a healthy alternative to the traditional Thai version, and will have you begging for seconds. Sticky rice is often made using processed sugar, but here we’ve used just a small amount of coconut nectar for mild sweetness without the sugar crash. The mango sauce is the finishing touch, providing a tart burst of flavor to contrast the mild, creamy rice. This recipe is made cleanse-friendlyvery easily with the substitution of brown rice.
We recently talked about the benefits of CBD oil. This CBD dessert recipe is infused with healthy and beneficial ingredients like CBD, ghee, and collagen but it tastes just like snickerdoodle cookie dough. These CBD protein balls are perfect for an evening snack, dessert, or a quick bite post-workout. They store well in the refrigerator, so make a large batch to enjoy all week long.
We love avocado toast just as much as the next person, but finding a truly clean bread that can be enjoyed while on the 21-Day Clean Program can be tricky. While gluten-free grains like millet, quinoa, and brown rice bread can be enjoyed on the program, often times these breads contain other ingredients like agave or canola oil that put a damper on the party. This is a unique way to prepare avocado toast that you can enjoy any time.
Kimchi is a traditional Korean dish, which is made by fermenting cabbage, red pepper, and other vegetables. Whether or not you can find this delicious Korean preparation, making it from scratch can often mean higher quality ingredients and a deeper appreciation for the food you eat. It’s full of probiotics, which we recommend getting on a daily dose in supplements and in food sources.
Hummus is a food we usually associate with savory flavors like garlic or pepper. Dessert hummus, is a new concept spreading rapidly in popularity. While it may sound odd, it is shockingly delicious. We’ve whipped up a rich, cleanse-approved, brownie batter version for you to test out at home. The name does not lie – we felt like we were eating a decadent chocolate dessert while really filling up on nutrient-dense ingredients like chickpeas, avocado, and raw cacao.
