Cantaloupe Smoothie Pack a Powerful Punch

You can easily add satisfying and tasty protein smoothie drinks to any lifestyle. The fresh combination of banana, cantaloupe in this smoothie packs a powerful punch of fiber, potassium, calcium, vitamin C and beta carotene. The cantaloupe is known for its low calorie content and sweet and enticing aroma, cantaloupes are the most popular kind of melons in the US. I have also tried this with half a cantaloupe that was getting a bit mushy. I added 3 bananas (without freezing them) and added some leftover white grape juice instead of the orange juice. It turned out wonderful.

INGREDIENTS:
1 banana
1/4 ripe cantaloupe, seeded and coarsely chopped
1/2 cup nonfat or low-fat yogurt
1 1/2 tablespoons frozen orange juice concentrate
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 Tbsp Caffe D’Vita Vanilla Smoothie mix
6 ice cubes

PREPARATION:
Place unpeeled banana in the freezer overnight (or for up to 3 months). Remove banana from the freezer and let it sit until the skin begins to soften, about 2 minutes. Remove the skin with a paring knife. (Don’t worry if a little fiber remains.) Cut the banana into chunks; combine in a blender or food processor with cantaloupe, yogurt, orange juice, and vanilla. Cover and blend until smooth.

After School Smoothies

If you have a hard time getting your kids to nosh on nutritious after-school snacks, take heart in knowing you’re not alone. Somewhere in the back of my kids’ minds they’re convinced that fruit is reserved for breakfast, and veggies are reserved for dinner. No way!

After years of fighting the good fight against processed, quick-grab, after-school snacks, I finally learned that the easiest way to incorporate nutrition into my little busy bodies is through a smoothie they can grab and gulp on the go. The best part is, I can pack these sneaky smoothies full of nutritious goodness without them ever knowing!

Healthy, convenient and portable, smoothies are ideal fuel-on-the-go for an afternoon snack or dessert. Smoothies provide important protein, vitamins and minerals from ingredients like tofu, yogurt and fruit. For an easy breakfast or snack, try making this of Mango Smoothie

INGREDIENTS
1 cup chopped peeled mango
1/2 cup nonfat vanilla yogurt
1/4 cup orange juice1 Tbsp Caffe D’Vita Fruit Cream Smoothie Mango Mix
6 ice cubes

PREPARATION

Place ingredients in the order listed in a blender. Pulse twice to chop mango, stir well, then blend until smooth. Serve immediately.

How to Trick Your Kids into Eating Spinach

I have never been much of a veggie eater. I generally have a raging sweet tooth and I’m pretty sure I passed my sweet tooth along to my children.

The problem with this is that vegetables are good for us and we should probably eat more of them even though they are not our favorite. It has been a recent goal of mine. I need to be a better role model for my kids so that they learn to have healthy and balanced eating habits as they get older.

The good news is my children all like fruit, which is why I decided that we are officially smoothie drinkers. Smoothies are a great way for us to get in the fruits and vegetables that we need and some days it’s the only thing I can actually get my little one to consume because she loves drinking anything through a straw.

Apparently straws are a fancy novelty when you’re a toddler – who knew? But, I digress…Here is one of our current favorite smoothie recipes – perfect for hiding veggies!

ORANGE BERRY SPINACH SMOOTHIE:

Ingredients:
1 tablespoon of Caffe D’Vita Vanilla Bean Classic Cream smoothie mix
2 cups spinach and/or kale
1 cup assorted berries (fresh or frozen blackberries and frozen raspberries)
1 banana
1 fresh squeezed orange (or frozen orange juice)
1 Tbsp. flaxseed meal
1.5 cups greek yogurt

Directions:
Throw it all in a blender and pulse until your smoothie is the desired consistency. In order for this to be a smoothie and not just juice, make sure at least one of the fruit elements in your smoothie is frozen (i.e. a frozen banana, or I use frozen berries). You can also throw in a few crushed ice cubes as well. Add larger amounts of fruits or veggies to your smoothie depending on the size you’d like your smoothie to be. I actually split this recipe with my daughter and while the smoothie looks a little small when it’s split, it’s super filling and keeps me going ’til lunch!

Hope you enjoy your tasty and nutritious smoothie!

Chocolate is Good For You

Chocolate is actually good for you!There’s a reason that chocolate inspires gotta-have-it cravings for so many of us, perhaps more than any other food: It’s good for you!

“It’s actually good for your heart and also good for your blood pressure,” says Valentine Yanchou Njike, MD, MPH, of the Yale Griffin Prevention Research Center, who has researched cocoa’s effect on blood vessel function. Researchers have also found that phytochemicals in cocoa, which is used to make chocolate, may improve blood vessel function, slow blood clotting, improve insulin resistance and have protective effects against cancer.  And even though the labels say chocolate contains saturated fat, it’s actually the kind of fat that has little effect on your cholesterol levels.

The bottom line is that you don’t have to beat yourself up for craving chocolate if you enjoy it in moderation.

Here are some tips for getting a guilt-free chocolate fix.
1. Choose wisely.
How about chocolate instead of potato chips? Yes, indeed! The darker the chocolate, the more phytochemicals it contains. Because you’re eating this for pleasure.

have what you like in moderation,
2. Get a liquid fix.
Hot cocoa is another way to enjoy chocolate. Make your own using one of Caffe D’Vita’s hot cocoa or sugar free hot cocoa.
3. Savor it.
If you really love chocolate, slow down, enjoy it and savor every sip.

Smoothies – Not Just for Summer Anymore

Forgive me for this outrageously healthy sounding recipe, but it is a New Year, and therefore all New Year’s diet resolutions are still in force. I usually think of smoothies more as summertime desserts.

Lately, I’ve been experimenting with a different class of smoothies. Vegetable-based, just a little sweet, make them well suited for the season. Sometimes I throw in a little orange juice or a squirt of lemon, but otherwise I stick to local, seasonal ingredients. If you’d like to try making your own, here are some other healthy ingredients you might want to consider adding:

Kale or spinach, carrot, apple beet (roasted or raw), orange (peeled fruit or juice)
sweet potato (roasted), parsley, pineapple, celery, ginger, carrot.
Try to purchase locally when possible, it’s fresher.

Green Apple Smoothie
1 serving
5 minutes preparation time
1 tablespoon of Caffe D’Vita Vanilla Bean Classic Cream smoothie mix
1 apple (any local variety), quartered and cored
1 carrot
½ small bunch spinach (about 2 cups packed leaves and stems)
1 teaspoon honey
1 pinch ground cinnamon (optional)
3-4 ice cubes
¼ cup cold water

In a blender, combine Vanilla Bean Smoothie mix, apple, carrot, spinach, honey, cinnamon, (or whatever suites your fancy that day) with ice cubes and water. Puree until smooth. If needed, add more water to achieve desired consistency.

Hot Cocoa Always Gets us Into the Valentine’s Day Spirit

Valentine’s Day was first associated with romantic love by Chaucer in the Middle Ages when the tradition of courtly love flourished. By the 15th century, it had evolved into an occasion in which lovers expressed their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery and sending greeting cards (known as “valentines”).Valentine’s Day symbols that are used today include the heart-shaped outline, doves, and the figure of the winged Cupid.
Valentine’s Day is growing in popularity or the excuse it gives us all to express a little of our romantic side. And there’s no better way to say “I love you!” than through the time-honored gift of chocolate. Yes, cards are fine and so are flowers – but let’s face it, you can’t eat or drink them. The act of sharing a divine and chocolaty Caffe D’Vita Mocha Cappuccino with the one you love is surely part and parcel of the day’s enjoyment.

Choose any or all six of our chocolate favorites. Sip a cup of White Chocolate Cappuccino, Chocolate Chai, Hot Cocoa, Sugar Free Hot Cocoa, Cocoa Freeze Smoothie, or White Chocolate Raspberry Cappuccino, each one excites the imagination.

So let’s think chocolate this Valentine’s Day and you never know where it all might lead! Certainly, the golden age of romance is alive and well in the range of Valentine’s Day offerings from Caffe D’Vita.

Our chocolate selection is always correct for Valentine’s Day and is perfect for all who are hopelessly head over heels in love. Customer Service and Premium Ingredients remain our greatest priorities as we continue to develop new and exciting products.
