Summer is almost here, and with it brings sun, sand, water, and generally much lighter food choices. Gone are the months full of stew and chili—bring on salads, smoothies, and fruity concoctions for all ages! To help ring in the new season, we’ve come up with 3 summer recipes you’re sure to love. Here you go:
Tart Summer Smoothie
Between the raspberries, rhubarb, and NutraCleanse™, this smoothie is absolutely packed with fibre and tastes refreshing on a sizzling summer day.
- 1 cup frozen raspberries
- ½ cup chopped rhubarb
- 2 spears ripe pineapple
- 1 cup coconut water
- 1 cup ice
- 1/3 cup NutraCleanse™
Combine all ingredients into blender, and blend until smooth. Serve immediately, or pour into popsicle molds and freeze for later. If you want this summer smoothie less thick, add more coconut water.
Almond Butter Salad Dressing
This salad dressing is to die for, and is fantastic both as a dressing and as a dipping sauce for such goodies as veggie salad rolls, spring rolls, etc. It’s even great as a spread on wraps and sandwiches, if you want to omit the water. (This just makes it thicker, like a spread.)
- 2/3 cup almond butter
- 2 cloves garlic, chopped
- 1 small thumb ginger, chopped
- 1 tbsp. maple syrup
- 1 tbsp. tamari (gluten-free soy sauce)
- ½ lime, juiced
- ½ tsp. cayenne pepper
- ¼ cup NutraCleanse™
- Water to thin
Combine all ingredients except water into blender and blend until smooth. Slowly add water to thin dressing to desired consistency. Drizzle over salad, and store extras in refrigerator for up to one week.
Who doesn’t love a great breakfast parfait?! These are fabulous in the summer, because they’re light and loaded with fibre and protein.
- 1 cup plain Greek yogurt, divided
- 1 cup assorted, fresh berries
- ½ cup granola
- ¼ cup NutraCleanse™
Stir NutraCleanse™ into granola and set aside. Using two small mason jars, layer the yogurt and berries then top with granola mixture. If you’d prefer flavoured yogurt (such as vanilla or strawberry) over plain, then make that substitution! Enjoy.
