The summer heat is here, and this year it seems stronger than ever! It can be really tempting to grab sugary beverages to quench your thirst, but before you know it, the calories quickly add up and you haven’t had lunch yet! Lucky for us, Terra Origin offers two great summer drink recipes to cool you down and keep you healthy!

Cool Red Lemonade

This lemonade is a winner for any hot day spent soaking up the sun in your backyard. You can even blend it up and save it in the fridge for later. Surprise your guests with this low-sugar, high-nutrient alternative to a summer classic!

Serves 4-6

INGREDIENTS:

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Combine water, lemon juice, Reds Superfood Kiwi Strawberry in a blender and stir.
  • Add strawberries and kiwis and mix in or add to garnish the drink.
  • Chill until ready to serve.

Choco Frappuccino

This is a morning treat that will cool you down and leave you full and energized for you day. The sugar content is extremely low compared to iced coffee beverages bought at coffee shops, so you won’t experience that glucose crash after.

Serves 2

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 medium-sized frozen banana
  • ½ tablespoon raw cacao powder
  • 2 scoops Terra Origin Chocolate Bone Broth Protein
  • 1 cup cold coffee
  • ¼ cup vanilla soy or almond milk
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • Ice to the consistency you prefer

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Add all the ingredients to your blender and mix until it is smooth and frothy!
  • For an extra protein and flavor kick, you can add a tablespoon of almond butter, or the nut butter of your choice. If you want a touch of healthy fats, bullet proof it with two tablespoons of coconut oil!
  • Top your frappuccino with cocoa nibs, shredded coconut or a dusting of cinnamon.

Enjoy a chill summer!
