Spiced Chai Tea Latte

Butternut Chai Latte

Chai Tea Latte has become my drink of choice. Chai Tea Latte has a bolder taste than a latte and complements the spice of the tea.

Chai has many inherently beneficial properties. The black tea in chai is rich in antioxidants and the spices in chai have been used for thousands of years to promote general health and well-being, as well as to treat various ailments.

Learning to Love the Avocado Smoothie

We love avocados. Whether plain with just a sprinkle of salt and pepper, or mashed into that delectable concoction known as guacamole, in our eyes, avocados can do no wrong.

Maybe you love avocados too. Or maybe you don’t. Or maybe you think they look weird, taste weird, and have absolutely no place on your plate, let alone in your smoothie.

We know you might have seen avocados turn up in smoothies or maybe you’ve marveled at the appeal of an avocado smoothie, wondered about trying one, but then skepticism takes over. All we can say to that is: You’re missing out!

Banana Cherry and Spinach Green Smoothie

This delicious green smoothie blends two of my favorite things – cherries and vanilla! This is a great post-workout smoothie (or meal) providing almost 400 calories and 17 grams of protein in just 26 ounces of deliciousness.

The spinach helps to add some extra iron, calcium and vitamins. The spinach in this recipe contributes almost 4 grams of protein on its own! This green smoothie is also loaded with potassium that your body needs after a good workout.

Raspberry Almond Smoothie

When was the last time you really considered what a culinary marvel the smoothie is? Think about it, you can literally put an entire banana, half a box of strawberries, and a scoop of Caffe D’Vita Vanilla Base Smoothie mix into a blender, and get something you can slurp down in no time at all. And unlike fruit juices, you don’t lose any fiber from the fruits and vegetables; it’s just in a more “sippable” form. (Plus, it’s nice to know you could be improving your health as you enjoy your concoction.)

Cool and refreshing, fruit smoothies made with Caffe D’Vita’s neutral creamy Vanilla base are designed to make every sip of your blended drinks light and flavorful. Here’s one of our favorite recipes.

The Powerful Green Smoothie

The USDA recommends that people fill at least half their plates at each meal with vegetables and fruit. For some, that might seem like a challenge. But there’s more than one way to devour the heaping daily portions of produce. You could, of course, chop your veggies and eat them fresh or season and sauté them. Or you can join the trendy crowd and drink them blended together into a liquid salad or transformed into a creamy, lime-colored smoothie with a little coconut milk and almond butter.

Childhood Redux: I Love Me Some Milkshakes

It’s been years since I had one, but I love me some milkshakes.

I remember being a kid and sleeping over at my friend’s house and staying up late and watching Alien. My friend and I used to hike to the local drug store lunch counter and order up the most delicious tasting concoctions ever created on earth. So of course, while I have a special place in my heart for yummy milkshakes I hadn’t really found a good one for years.

To my delight Caffe D’Vita has recreated my childhood memories in a delicious mix you can make at home without the hassle of using ice cream, which pleases both parents and kids.

Free Hot Cocoa to Soften Blow of Students Returning to University

As semester two begins, the folks at The Union decided the thought of making a 9:00 lecture might be a little too tough for some – so they’re bribing University of Dundee students to get out of their beds with the promise of a free hot cocoa.

They should pick Caffe D’Vita’s Hot Cocoa. Caffe D’Vita uses plenty of Dutch processed European chocolate in its hot cocoa, rich in flavor while soothing and creamy, and so easy to make, just hot add water.

Health Benefits of Juicing VS. Smoothies

Juicing and smoothies are all the rage right now. While both can boost your fruit and vegetable intake (something most Americans need to do) and are great for getting a variety of produce into your diet, one is the better choice.

That’s the smoothie. Why? Juicing leaves behind a pulp, which contains fiber, and nutrients that you end up tossing away, and thus you lose most of the benefits of whole fruits and vegetables. Blending produce into a smoothie, however, preserves fiber, and a smoothie can deliver an extra boost of vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals because it often includes fruit skins and pith. Read more
