Ships Nationally. Delivers Locally in Manhattan & Brooklyn.

Springtime springing up (we hope! we hope!) in NYC has us channeling our inner flower child – so we thought it was only appropriate to dedicate this #FoodCrushFriday to one very special edible bloom: hibiscus.

As beautiful as it is beneficial, hibiscus has myriad antibacterial, antifungal, and antioxidant properties; supports a healthy heart by helping to keep blood pressure and cholesterol in check; settles the stomach; and helps eliminate wastes and toxins from the body.

So you all probably know hibiscus as a tea – but did you know you can sneak hibiscus powder into many a recipe to amp up the nutritional profile with a pink so pretty it could moonlight as an 80’s movie? :) 

We – of course – added some sprinkles of hibiscus into our classic cashew milk recipe to create a..

Pretty in Pink Cashew Milk

In your Vitamix or other blender combine:

  • 1 cup raw cashews, soaked and rinsed

  • 4 cups H2O

  • 4-5 Medjool dates

  • 1 teaspoon raw coconut oil

  • ½ vanilla bean or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 tablespoon hibiscus powder

Blend, Blend, Smile, Enjoy – Happy spring!
