Pumpkin Chai Smoothie

I know it’s kinda early for pumpkin, but to be honest, we eat it all year long.  The minute I tried this REBBL Ashwagandha Chai Coconut Milk Elixir, I knew it would be delicious with pumpkin.  I was right.  The warm spices from the Chai, pair perfectly with the pumpkin!

I had the pleasure of trying all the vegan flavors and they are delicious.  Perfect for take on the go, just like you would a coffee drink, but without the caffeine.  I really love the Maca Cold-Brew as an alternative to coffee drinks.  The maca root gives you sustained, non-jittery energy, and the taste is great too!

REBBL stands for Root, Extracts, Berries, Bark and Leaves.  REBBL offers many different coconut milk elixirs: Matcha Latte, Turmeric Golden Milk, Maca Cold Brew, Maca Mocha, Reishi Chocolate and Ashwagandha Chai.  They also offer 2 protein drinks: Dark Chocolate and Vanilla Spice.

Mango and Black Bean Quinoa Salad

Summer is not totally over yet, so I am making you a Mango and Black Bean Quinoa Salad. I just love salads.

Last month when I went home to Boston, my stepmom made this awesome pasta salad with mangoes, black beans, corn, pasta, cilantro and lime.  I really enjoyed it, so I decided to come home and make a twist on that recipe. I used quinoa in place of the pasta, since I am not a huge pasta fan.  I think this came out really good!
