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.

Yummy Oatmeal Smoothie: Tastes Like an Oatmeal Cookie

Caffe D'VitaAn oatmeal smoothie is a creamy, milkshake-like smoothie made with oats, raisins, cinnamon, and vanilla. It tastes like an oatmeal cookie!

This oatmeal smoothie reminds me of a cross between the banana milkshakes that my mom use to make me and oatmeal cookies! They’re cool and creamy, with a hint of oats, cinnamon, and vanilla.

But my favorite part is the texture – they have a perfect milkshake consistency, despite the fact that they don’t contain any ice cream! (If you can’t swing a milkshake today – and I don’t blame you – definitely bookmark this one for when it’s a little warmer. Or, you know, at least in the double digits!)

Ingredients
2 heaping tablespoons Caffe D’Vita Fruit Cream Smoothie Vanilla Base
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 cups ice
½ banana (peeled)
4 tablespoons rolled oats (uncooked)
1 ounce raisins
Preparation

Add all ingredients, except ice, to a blender container. Cover and process on high for 45 seconds, or until smooth.
Add the ice. Cover and blend on high for another 45 seconds, using the tamper to press the ice down into the blades.
Pour into two glasses and serve immediately.

Hot Cocoa is Good for the Mind, Body & Spirit

Ever have a stressful day and think to yourself, “A piece of chocolate would make me feel better”? In part, you may be onto something. Cocoa makes us feel good.

”It has been shown as proof positive that carefully prepared cocoa is as healthful a food as it is pleasant; that it is nourishing and easily digested…that it is above all helpful to people who must do a great deal of mental work.” ~Anthelme Brillat-Savarin

Any true chocolate connoisseur can tell you that this delectable “food of the gods” is good for your mind and your spirit. Researchers—nutritionists, food scientists, nurses and cardiologists—have also demonstrated scientifically that cocoa is good for your body.

Hot Cocoa Has Some Really Surprising Health Benefits

By: Melissa Breyer

Drinkable chocolate has been used for years to treat ailments and maladies. When chocolate made its way to France in the 17th century, it was used “to fight against fits of anger and bad moods.” Which wasn’t just the French being French, it was truly insightful, given that modern research has discovered that chocolate reduces levels of stress hormones in the bodies of people feeling highly freaked out.

Which begs the question: We keep hearing more and more about the health benefits of chocolate, can the same be applied to hot cocoa as well? As it turns out, the answer is a resounding yes. Read more

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.

Autumn Goes Perfect With Cappuccinos

Watching the wind blowing through the trees outside the beginning of autumn brings, a few orange and brown leaves falling to the ground. An afghan spread out on my lap, fuzzy socks on my feet. I love to get curled up reading a good book, with my hand wrapped around a warm coffee mug, the taste of cinnamon and nutmeg lingering in my mouth, yummy.

I love cappuccino when it’s cool outside. It’s comforting and soothing to me. When I was in 9th or 10th grade, my mom found Caffe D’Vita, an amazing instant cappuccino mix.  We’ve made it every fall and winter since then (I’m talking, 13 years later and I still love it).

Caffe D’Vita’s products have a long shelf life, are kosher and gluten free, are quick to make and can be used hot or cold. For Cappuccinos simply mix with hot water or for a Blended Iced Coffee, Frappe, or Fruit Smoothie use either a blender or granita machine. The premium ingredients are guaranteed to produce accurate serving results every time. For foodservice customers, our unique customer service and promotional support is backed by our depth of experience serving the premium beverage industry.

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.
