EnerHealth Botanicals Review and Giveaway!

I have had the pleasure of reviewing several items from EnerHealth Botanicals this past week. I love knowing that I am feeding my children healthy foods. Not only are they healthy products, but they are fair trade products, which means that I can feel good about where this food comes from as well. That's what EnerHealth Botanicals is all about - providing quality food that is good for your body and your soul.

When I first opened the box from EnerHealth, the most amazing smell reached me! It was the coffee, and while I'm not a coffee drinker (Handsome is the coffee-aholic in the family), I love the smell. This NutriCafe Organic Immune Support coffee can't be beat. Not only is it organic, it is also fair trade and immune supporting! This Vienna Roast is made from Arabica beans, containing about half the caffeine of normal coffee, although Handsome hasn't noticed a difference in energy levels since he made the switch! He also can't taste the immune support - much of which comes from mushrooms, which he doesn't like. There is no mushroom taste, yet he is reaping the benefits of them, simply by drinking his morning coffee.



 I had never actually tried Coconut Milk Powder before trying EnerHealth's version. There were some things I learned along the way. One is that this does not mix well into cold water. It does much better with warm or hot liquid. Another is that this is great in a smoothie. Coconut Milk Powder contains healthy fats, omega - 3's, and acids that are known for having an anti-microbial effect on the body. It is also gluten free, making it safe and healthy for those with gluten issues.

The next thing we tried was the Cocoa MoJo. Like the coffee, it is organic, fair trade, and immune supporting! Not surprisingly, this was my kids favorite. It makes a great hot cocoa, and when blended with some of EnerHealth's Coconut Milk Powder, it tastes like a chocolate coconut macaroon. Besides the immune enhancing properties, I really like that this has a low glycemic index because it is made with organic coconut palm sugar. My Mother-in-Law is diabetic and has been trying to eat better these last few years. That means less sweets, which can be really hard. The Cocoa MoJo is a great product for someone who suffers with diabetes, or for anyone who is trying to watch their sugar intake.

I also got to try the Coconut Palm Sugar, which is what the Cocoa MoJo is made with. Basically, it is used the same as normal sugar - while not quite as sweet as cane sugar, it does satisfy the sweetness craving. It tastes a bit like maple syrup, and who doesn't like that?! The greatest benefit of this sugar is that it is lower on the glycemic index, making it so much better for those needing to watch their sugar intake.

Since we have been having so much fun trying out new recipes with these products, I thought I would share one with you!

Coconut Berry Blast
1 Cup Strawberries
1 Cup Raspberries
1 Cup Blueberries
3 Cups Ice
3 Tbsp. Coconut Milk Powder

Simply toss it in your blender and you have smoothies for two!

  57. Thank you for the recipe for the smoothie. We drink them for breakfast and your recipe is a winner. The only ingredient I don't have is the coconut palm sugar. Thank you too for your review. I have been drinking tea lately, but I wouldn't have to skip coffee if it was from EnerHealth Botanicals. I love that the NutriCafe Organic Immune Support coffee is organic, fair trade and immune supporting!
