Sweet days – Sweeter treats

Posted on September 15, 2017

 

Feeling festive? To celebrate the official day: September 18 – National Rice Krispies Treat Day, we’re sharing our favourite recipe!

 

No one knows quite how or why this “national day” came to be. At any rate, it’s always fun to celebrate something with only the slightest reasons. Super close to our very own Rice Chex treats, there's a special place in our heart for this totally simple, gooey and buttery perfection! This perfect recipe will make 16 squares:

 



INGREDIENTS

  • 5 Tbsp butter

  • 8 cups, plus 2 cups mini marshmallows

  • 6 cups Krispie (Can substitute with Chex Cereal)

  • ½ tsp salt

 

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Line a 9x9 pan with foil and spray lightly with cooking spray, set aside.

  2. In a large pot over low heat melt butter. Once butter is melted add in 8 cups mini marshmallows, stirring constantly.

  3. Once the marshmallows are just melted remove from heat and stir in your cereal and salt until just coated in marshmallow mixture. Now stir in the remaining 2 cups of mini marshmallows.

  4. Pour mixture into prepared pan and press in evenly.

  5. Allow cooling completely before cutting into squares. Best if served the same day.

 

This is only the Rice Krispie treat recipe you’ll ever need!

This throwdown was open to the public and sign-up was FREE. There was an incredible cash win of $500 to the night's winner + MORE swag and prizes. Sign-ups began at 8 pm and filled quickly.

When life hands you lemons...

Posted on August 9, 2017

 

Lemonade is the perfect drink for summer, and we’re excited about our two new thirst-quenching Lemonades! 

 

 

 

 

The Activated Charcoal Lemonade is a delicious black lemonade made with all natural ingredients and activated charcoal for detoxifying properties.

 

What is activated charcoal?

 

Activated charcoal is food-grade charcoal made from coconut, peat, coal or wood. It is black, odor-less and tasteless. Benefits of Activated Charcoal rage from teeth whitening to treating the skin to alleviates gas + bloating, serves as a digestive cleanse, helps prevent damage to the kidneys and liver, and is a real hangover cure. (Please note: activated charcoal should not be consumed within 2 hours of taking medicine as it will deactivate the medication.)

 

 

  

 

The Sparkling Strawberry Lemonade is a refreshing summer drink made with homemade strawberry syrup, lemonade and topped with sparkling water and a slice of lemon. A little sweet and a little tart, with a lot of delicious fruit flavor!

 

 

 

  

 

This is the kind of summer beverage you’ll want to sip all day long. Tweet us if you agree :)

Seeing Mylk Differently

Posted on August 1, 2017

Mylk — spelt with a 'Y' indicates that this is a "milk" type of texture with a non dairy base. The new Chocolate, Charcoal, and Golden Mylks are dairy free (almond milk), healthy and DELICIOUS.

 

 

Our Chocolate Mylk is an almond milk mix with cacao, maca, medjool dates and Himalayan salt.

 

Ingredients: cacao powder, maca powder, medjool dates, himalayan sea salt, almond milk

Benefits: cacao packs a lot of antioxidant power, like turmeric.  Additionally, cacao has high levels of iron, magnesium, calcium, and is also said to be a mood elevator and antidepressant!  Maca, is said to include a positive effect on hormone balance, energy levels and is a health booster.  It also has a high calcium level.  Medjool Dates provide an awesome carmelly natural sweetness. Himalayan Salt is a unique salt that provides a depth of flavor as well as help regulate water levels in your body, promotes healthy pH balance in your cells, and promote blood sugar health.

 

 

The Charcoal Mylk with its awesome dark grey color, is simply made with almond milk, activated charcoal and medjool dates.

 

Ingredients: activated charcoal, medjool dates, almond milk

Benefits: The main thing here is the activated charcoal.  The benefits of the activated charcoal seem to be growing day by day.  Lately people have started using this to whiten their teeth, and treat skin blemishes.  But when people drink liquids containing this charcoal, the main benefits are: it alleviates gas + bloating, serves as a digestive cleanse, helps prevent damage to the kidneys and liver, (and is a real hangover cure…)

 

 

The Golden Mylk is our turmeric-ginger concentrate with almond milk.

 

Ingredients: cold pressed turmeric, cold pressed ginger, honey, almond milk

Benefits:  Turmeric is said to be an anti-inflammatory.  Inflammation is a chronic cause of many diseases, thus reducing inflammation is important!  Turmeric also is said to pack many antioxidants, important for a healthy body.  Ginger, like turmeric is an anti-inflammatory and also aids in digestion and relieves nausea.
