I really fell in love with Muesli this past summer in France.  We ate it most mornings for breakfast.  And not only did it taste beyond, but it kept me full, calm, and energized for ages.  I’ve found myself really rekindling my love for it lately and sufficing my afternoon sweet tooth with its dehydrated superfruits and berries.  

When I returned back to the states, I had a really hard time finding a raw, sprouted, quality mix I connected with.  So I decided to start making my own—since it only requires blending my favorite sprouted foods together and adding a bit of slightly warmed raw milk (I prefer this to cold-from-the-fridge milk in the winter for the body).

Recently I’ve been getting asked to teach people how to prepare certain foods, quite often. After so many requests, I decided to develop my own little Free + Native class branch. Yesterday was the very first one I taught, and was graced upon the most divine group. Incredibly beaming souls who were so respectful of my time and energy. We focused on making seed + nut milk, along with my two favorite daily smoothies, Pearl and Cacao Cloud.

During lecturing, I overhead myself really highlighting the INCREDIBLY important medicinal aspects of including probiotic-rich foods into our diet daily. That leads me into this very energizing, beautifying smoothie bursting with beneficial bacteria from wonderful goat kefir.

Acai Pearl Smoothie

Adding pearl powder, yes you heard me—ground pearls—to this smoothie is quite exciting. When meeting up with the ever-so-knowledgeable Christine Della Cioppa a couple of weeks ago, she sure took my every-couple-of-days acai, chia, banana, stevia, sprouted almond milk smoothie to another level when she made me this INCREDIBLE acai ice cream bowl and chatted about the beauty results of pearl as an herb (recipe coming very soon—it’s going to blow your mind, trust me).

Nonetheless, I ran right to Erewhon and bought some pearl powder to add to this smoothie in hopes that my skin will turn as fluorescent and glowing as that of a pearl. And not only hugely beautifying, this smoothie also serves as the perfect mid-afternoon mega energy boost when you start loosing steam. The bee pollen and acai will keep you buzzing for hours!
