The Supercharged skinny bliss "latte" recipe

As many of you know, my classes are filled with tons of info and fun, tasty, mega-nutritious recipes and snacks. I’m always thinking of ways to incorporate the best of the raw, exotic superfood world into my recipes and the less time I spend in the kitchen, the better. One of the main goals of the ecoLUXE lifestyle is to provide the real deal in food and nutrition. I thought the best way to do that is to share an easy, signature healixir each week with you!

This week is my signature Skinny Latte, a must for those trying to kick the Starbucks habit. This latte is like nothing else you’ve tried! It’s low calorie, jam-packed with medicinal, healing nutrition and free of weird chemicals, soy isolates and other gross things that don’t belong in your body. Read on to discover one of the quickest, most delicious ways to rejuvenate and repair, naturally detox and feel fabulous!

The Skinny Latte Healixir
Makes 40 oz- split into two and drink 1 in morning or kick-off and one in after as pick me up
sip on all day( yes, you can skip breakfast & lunch and sip your way into skinny & actually feel complete, satisfied and cravings minimized!)

½ cup Chocolate Bliss Superfood Blend( more on that in upcoming blogs-this stuff is a hidden gem-it’s a beauty elixir in itself)

¼ cup to ½ cup Vanilla Bean Agave (based on desired sweetness however, if you have to do a whole bunch of banana etc to make it sweet enough just use the agave…. and be sure it’s the vanilla bean agave— see here for the real deal on agave.)

3 TB pristine hemp seeds (get your protein here!)

2 TB ultra tocotrienols (raw vitamin E extract from fermented wild rice- no carbs, no sugar…high nutrients, high antioxidants, high protein.. what could be better!!)

Pinch of sun fire salt (high platinum salt with loads of minerals and keeps you hydrated)

To spice it up--
Hint of cinnamon
Hint of cayenne
Hint of nutmeg
