Butternut Chai Latte

Chai Tea Latte has become my drink of choice. Chai Tea Latte has a bolder taste than a latte and complements the spice of the tea.

Chai has many inherently beneficial properties. The black tea in chai is rich in antioxidants and the spices in chai have been used for thousands of years to promote general health and well-being, as well as to treat various ailments.

Caffe D’Vita’s Chai Tea Latte mix is wonderfully soothing and so easy to make at home.

Ingredients:
4 tablespoons Caffe D’Vita Chai Tea Latte mix
1/3 Cup whole milk
1 Tablespoons Butternut Squash Puree
1/4 Teaspoon Cinnamon
Pinch of Nutmeg

Whisk the butternut squash puree and milk into the chai latte mix. Pour the Chai Tea mix and butternut squash puree into a mason jar, tighten the lid, and shake vigorously for 1 minute. Remove the lid, place the glass jar in the microwave, and heat for 30 seconds.

Pour into a mug, using a spoon to hold back the foam. Top and sprinkle the cinnamon and nutmeg over the top. Serve immediately.

Learning to Love the Avocado Smoothie

We love avocados. Whether plain with just a sprinkle of salt and pepper, or mashed into that delectable concoction known as guacamole, in our eyes, avocados can do no wrong.

Maybe you love avocados too. Or maybe you don’t. Or maybe you think they look weird, taste weird, and have absolutely no place on your plate, let alone in your smoothie.

We know you might have seen avocados turn up in smoothies or maybe you’ve marveled at the appeal of an avocado smoothie, wondered about trying one, but then skepticism takes over. All we can say to that is: You’re missing out!

Avocados are a magic ingredient that will totally transform your smoothie game for a couple key reasons. For one, they provide a uniquely silky texture to smoothies, without an overbearing taste. Second, avocados can give real substance to what might otherwise be an otherwise blah smoothie. For example, by adding avocados to smoothies, you’ll end up reaping a ton of health benefits due to their high content of protein, healthy fats, fiber and potassium.

So, now that we’ve sufficiently big-upped avocados and avocado smoothies, let’s get to the good stuff! Also, feel free to get creative and start concocting your own avocado smoothie recipes by simply adding avocado to your existing smoothies. Here is one that we like!

 

Avocado-Pear Smoothie

Ingredients:
1 avocado
1 pear
4 tablespoons Caffe D’Vita Vanilla Base
8 ounces crushed ice

Blend on high for 30 seconds or until the smoothie is creamy. Pour into glass and enjoy!

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.

Also rich in vitamins B1 through B6, vitamin K, copper, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium and zinc.

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.

Raspberry Almond Smoothie
1/2 cup almond milk
1/4 cup Caffe D’Vita Vanilla base mix
1/2 medium banana
1/2 cup fresh (or frozen) raspberries
1/8 teaspoon almond extract

Blend and serve.

Bon Appetit!

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.

The Powerful Green Smoothie

The USDA recommends that people fill at least half their plates at each meal with vegetables and fruit. For some, that might seem like a challenge. But there’s more than one way to devour the heaping daily portions of produce. You could, of course, chop your veggies and eat them fresh or season and sauté them. Or you can join the trendy crowd and drink them blended together into a liquid salad or transformed into a creamy, lime-colored smoothie with a little coconut milk and almond butter.

The best way to get nutrition is from food, and by consuming a healthful smoothie every day you are getting most of your nutrition in one proven delicious drink. And with Caffe D’Vita Vanilla Base Smoothie mix you can make healthy, inexpensive green smoothies.

Thick green smoothies and their transparent green counterpart, the green juice have become a fashionable way to consume big doses of veggies thanks to endorsements by celebrities such as heart surgeon and talk-show host Dr. Mehmet Oz and the popularity of greens such as kale and spinach, which are the reason that most green smoothies have shades ranging from moss to forest. They typically contain kale or spinach, sweet fruit or a vegetable with a high natural sugar content such as carrots or beets, or their juice and some kind of liquid, usually apple juice or pineapple.

Spinach is a better vegetable to begin with than kale because it’s sweeter and is almost nutritionally equal to kale. Once people try these, they realize how good they are. And then, the more a person drinks them, the more they enjoy them.

Green smoothies are loaded with vitamins and minerals, just like the fruits and veggies that go into them. Green smoothies can be a healthy choice for many people, and if sipped slowly they are a replacement for soda or other non-nutritious snacks. It tastes like you’re just drinking a salad only better.

Childhood Redux: I Love Me Some Milkshakes

It’s been years since I had one, but I love me some milkshakes.

I remember being a kid and sleeping over at my friend’s house and staying up late and watching Alien. My friend and I used to hike to the local drug store lunch counter and order up the most delicious tasting concoctions ever created on earth. So of course, while I have a special place in my heart for yummy milkshakes I hadn’t really found a good one for years.

To my delight Caffe D’Vita has recreated my childhood memories in a delicious mix you can make at home without the hassle of using ice cream, which pleases both parents and kids.

Caffe D’Vita now sells Chocolate, Strawberry, Cookies ‘N Cream and Vanilla milkshakes.

I’m so glad to have my childhood favorite treat available to me again. Like a forgotten fire, a childhood can always flare up again within us.

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.

Knowledge of chocolate’s benefits is not new. The ancient Aztecs discovered a “divine drink, which builds up resistance and fights fatigue.” A cup of this invaluable, refreshing and nourishing drink, made by crushing the seeds of the Theobroma cocoa tree, permitted a man to walk for a whole day without food.

Nutrition researcher, Michael Levine, among others, described chocolate as being the world’s perfect food—chemically speaking.
Many people consume chocolate during moments of emotional distress, for its comforting properties, ability to improve mood and restore a sense of well being. The comforting, mood-elevating properties are most likely caused by the release of endorphins resulting from chocolate consumption.

Enjoy Caffe D’Vita’s smooth and creamy Hot Cocoa mixes made with Dutch processed European Chocolate. (Insert link)

Transforming Cool Summer Caffe D’Vita Smoothies Into Winter Warmers

When you’re a smoothie person, winter can seem pretty bleak. The refreshing, light and cool smoothies of summer are singularly unappealing — not to mention out of season — when the trees are all bare. But be brave, and don’t pack away your blender just yet! Instead, try some new strategies for smoothies that’ll warm your bones.

Spices don’t just add flavor. Adding ginger to a fruit smoothie (or just about any green smoothie) gives it a serious kick and some health benefit too. Spices like cardamom, anise and cayenne warm the stomach. For banana smoothies, use Caffe D’Vita Chai Tea Latte for major deliciousness.
Also try goji berries, black pepper, cloves and nutmeg.

No ice allowed in winter smoothies but try adding plain Greek yogurt, which is an excellent source of protein, and add your own sweeteners as desired.

Like Greek yogurt, nuts add protein and fat, which your body needs to keep warm. They also add dimension and richness to the flavor of your smoothies. Try pistachios or walnuts with apples. Coconut (flakes) goes with just about everything. And whatever you do, don’t forget about peanut butter!

When all else fails, just take one of your summer Caffe D’Vita smoothie recipes and warm it up! Try blending mango, banana and juice to a consistency you like, then warming it on a saucepan briefly. Alternatively, cook 1/4 cup of oats in milk, then blend with berries and yogurt. Drink it while it’s still hot.

Beat the Summer Heat with a Blended Iced Coffee

While we do wait for the summer season to slip into airy light shirts and shorts, the heat in the midst of summer can be relentless.

In the mornings it’s nice because we can enjoy that low-intensity balmy weather. By high noon, though, most of us are fanning ourselves off and wiping our brows. We find ourselves scanning our refrigerators for something ice cold to take with us to the beach to help beat the heat.

This season, ward off the dizzying heat with a blended iced coffee drink from Caffe D’Vita. Caffe D’Vita’s Premium coffee mixes come in five delicious flavors, including Mocha Latte, Caramel Latte, Coffee, Vanilla Latte and the Double Mocha Latte.

Rich and smooth, each of these blended coffee drinks can be made in a blender or poured over ice for a refreshing summer treat. They can be mixed with coffee and are excellent for summer mornings or a great brunch highlight beverage for after dinner, an ideal way for making iced drinks at home and an excellent budget-friendly way to cool off and indulge throughout the season.

Caffe D’Vita Cappuccino, Hot Cocoa and Chai

There is something so quaint about inviting somebody over for coffee. Whether you’re entertaining guests or you are simply catching up with neighbors and friends, serving coffee is a traditional gesture that is both simple and hospitable.

The phrasing is, of course, just a figure of speech. These days, we are not simply limited to the conventional standard pot of coffee or the kettle of Earl Grey.

Made with Arabica coffee and the finest flavorings, Caffe D’Vita’s cappuccinos come in flavors ranging from Sugar-Free French Vanilla and Mocha to Unique blends featuring hazelnut and amaretto. Indulge in the white chocolate or english toffee or savor the delightful hint of Seville orange in our delightful Orange Mocha.

Caffe D’Vita’s Enchanted Chai Tea Latte provides a comforting blend of exotic teas, spices and milk that can be enjoyed anytime. Serve it hot, iced, or blended for the perfect premium Chai Frappe or it can be added to baked goods like muffins and cakes. At Caffe D’Vita you can pick between either classic spiced chai, vanilla chai, or (back by popular demand), our chocolate chai.

If your chocolate fix requires something a bit more traditional, try a steaming cup of our classic Hot Cocoa. We use Dutch-processed cocoa to create a premium chocolate beverage that is rich and creamy and can be enjoyed throughout the day.

Products are available in 2-lb bags for food service. Single-serve packets and 1-lb canisters are also available.

If you are planning on entertaining guests or if you want to bring something other than the typical casserole or bundt cake to the next dinner party, you can prepare up to 3.8 gallons of cappuccino, hot cocoa, or chai tea and keep it in an airpot. Incredibly efficient and easy to transport, airpots will save you money in the long run because you can keep your coffee warm for hours without wasting electricity.

If you are interested in becoming a Caffe D’Vita foodservice distributor, we would be happy to provide you with the resources to market Caffe D’Vita products to your customers.

Caffe D’Vita – Irish Creamtini

When done right, a chilled martini can be the perfect thing at the end of a long day. One particularly favorable quality of a martini is that the variations on this drink seem to know no end or boundary.

While experimenting with various ways to create the perfect martini—try adding Caffe D’Vita’s Irish Cream powdered cappuccino mix to the blend. Smooth and delicious, our Irish Creamtini is just sweet enough to counteract the bitter flavor of the gin or vodka without overpowering it. Try this recipe:

In a metal martini shaker, add:
2 oz of prepared Caffe D’Vita Irish Cream mix
2 oz of vodka
A splash of very chilled Martini & Rossi Dry Vermouth
A lemon twist
Crushed Ice (a note about this: Cubed is fine, but Crushed will make it colder)
½ oz Vanilla syrup (this part is optional)

Take the glass out of the fridge (you should chill it for about 10 minutes before using it), and pour a small amount of the vermouth into it. Swirl the vermouth in the glass that the sides of the glass are coated. Discard the vermouth. Rim the glass with the lemon twist. Pour your gin or vodka into a shaker over lots of ice. Shake well until cold and pour into the martini glass. Twist the lemon, well, twist over the martini and balance it along the rim (or just drop it in the glass the way you would in the case of a cosmo).

If you don’t like the lemon and cream flavor/texture combo, try rimming the glass with chocolate sauce and dusting a bit of cinnamon on top of the martini. You can use olives, but it’s not really recommended.

Pumpkin Spice Smoothie and Cappuccino

I love autumn. I love the crisp air and the cozy nights by the fire—I love the excitement of the holidays and the way we immediately feel closer to our loved ones. There’s just something so intimate about holiday traditions and I take comfort in knowing that everyone else feels the same way.

Our senses pick up on so many wonderful sensations during the holiday season. We feel the cold air coming in, we see the leaves changing, we hear the sounds of crunching leaves. And then there are the smells and tastes!

Growing up, I remember two very distinct scents that would trigger that sense of comfort and the exciting “the holidays are here” feeling: the cinnamon broomstick my mother always hung on the front door…and the scent of pumpkin pie lingering throughout the house.

The thing I’ve always liked about pumpkins (other than the fact, of course, that they are delicious) is that they are the one food that really offers a transition between holidays. We carve them up in October and then, in November, we bake them into pies and puddings—breads and muffins.

Pumpkins are so incorporated into our fall and winter festivities that even the scent of cooked pumpkin stirs within us a sense of togetherness and comfort. In this season, we coax the sweet scent and flavor of pumpkin for use in every possible way, from pies and muffins to candles and even lotions and soaps. But isn’t that what’s great about ‘pumpkin’!

This holiday, enjoy that much-coveted pumpkin fix with Caffe D’Vita’s traditional Pumpkin Spice Cappuccino mix. Creamy and delicious, this all-natural mix is excellent when served hot for the holidays and even goes well in a smoothie year-round.

Just place two teaspoons of Caffe D’Vita’s premium Pumpkin Spice Cappuccino mix into a 6-oz cup and add 5-oz of hot water. Stir thoroughly and top it with whipped cream lightly dusted with pumpkin spice, cinnamon, or nutmeg.

If you want to make a Pumpkin Spice Smoothie, blend 3-oz of water or milk, 3 large ice cubes and 3 teaspoons of Caffe D’Vita’s premium Pumpkin Spice Cappuccino mix into a blender. Blend it until it’s smooth and pour it into a frosty glass. Top it with whipped cream and dust it with pumpkin spice, cinnamon, or nutmeg.

Caffe D’Vita’s products have a long shelf life, are kosher, are quick to make, and can be made hot or cold and with either a blender or granita machine. The premium ingredients are guaranteed to produce accurate serving results every time. Our unique customer service and promotional support is backed by over 37 years of experience in the premium beverage industry.

Holiday Traditions and Candy Cane Lore

Just before Christmas, in seventeenth century Europe, a choirmaster looked over his notes regarding that year’s Christmas pageant. The event was to be spectacular: a drawn-out affair complete with living mangers and live animals—reenactments and beautifully performed psalms. A visual delight for church patrons, it was designed to truly celebrate the Christmas story. The adults would be delighted; the children would be bored.

The choirmaster reflected over this. What good would it be to plan such an extravagant performance if there would be children rustling and sighing throughout the whole thing?

And then he came up with a solution. At this time, in lieu of the modern pacifier, parents would occupy unruly children with sticks of white sugar. The choirmaster—in an effort to calm the restless kids—ordered that enough sticks of sugar be available to hand out to all of the children. He even found a way to tie it in with the Christmas story: instead of handing out straight sticks, he had them fashioned into the symbol of a shepherd’s: crook or cane.

The idea was such a success that, before long, it was being implemented throughout Europe. These candy canes were eventually given several symbolic meanings that tied them into the bible and, of course, throughout history more have been added.

The hardness of the candy supposedly represents the Church’s foundation (like solid rock). The white canes were also symbolic of Mary’s purity during the conception. The fact that held upside down, the shape of the Shepherd’s Crook becomes a “J” (for Jesus) only further encouraged its popularity. The refreshing peppermint flavor of a candy cane even hints to hyssop—which was a purification herb listed in the Old Testament.

The candy cane made its first reported debut in America in 1847, when a German immigrant hung the canes on his Christmas tree in Ohio. The then all-white candy decorated Christmas cards and became one of the many symbols associated with Christmas and the holiday season.

Around 1900, the look of the cane shifted: three red stripes suddenly appeared. The stripes are said to represent many things: the trinity, the blood spilled by Christ at Cavalry’s tree, and Christ’s love being among them. When a candy cane has a green stripe, it is symbolic of gift-giving.

From then-on-out, Candy Canes were striped.

Refreshingly sweet and seeped in religious lore, peppermint candy canes have become so integrated into holiday traditions that even the simple taste of peppermint makes us think of donning our stockings and decking the halls.

At Caffe D’Vita, you can bring the refreshing tradition of sweet peppermint home with our delicious Peppermint Mocha Cappuccinos.

Just add 5 ounces of water or milk to 3 teaspoons of our premium Peppermint Mocha Mix into your favorite 6-ounce mug and stir. Top it with whipped cream and dust it with some green sprinkles. Top it with whipped cream and dust it with some green sprinkles or if you like add a classic red-and-white candy cane stirrer and it’s ready to serve. Add a classic red-and-white candy cane stirrer and it’s ready to serve.

You can also combine 3 ounces of dairy, almond or soy milk into a blender with 3 tablespoons of all-natural Peppermint Mocha mix and 3 ice cubes. Blend it together until it’s smooth for a minty smoothie or add peppermint schnapps and serve it as a cocktail with a crushed candy cane rim.

Holiday Spirits

When I was a kid, I loved hot chocolate. Big surprise, huh? Aside from my sister, who for some very strange reason used to pretend she was allergic to chocolate when we were kids, and is a mystery still left unsolved. I now notice that as a grown woman in her twenties that strange allergy seems to have miraculously lifted. Every child to my knowledge likes hot chocolate.

What’s not to like? It’s just about perfect: a warm drink from the bitter cold that brings you close to the table: your cold little hands burning up as they clasp around the mug. Not to mention it’s chocolate: even the ancients used to refer to it as the “gift from the gods”. My love affair with a perfectly brewed cup of hot cocoa continues to this very day.

As I’ve grown up, however, my girlfriends and I have developed a taste for a slightly different variation: adult hot chocolate, if you will. I have one friend (a pastry chef to boot—you can imagine how handy she becomes around the holidays) that particularly favors a simple shot (or two) of Bailey’s Irish Crème in her hot cocoa. I, personally, prefer the recipe for a Hot Chocolate Almond listed below (I also like Toasted Almonds and drink Almond Milk…are you sensing a pattern here?)

There are several really delicious recipes for spiked hot chocolate floating around, and every one of them offers a slightly unique take on an otherwise simple and almost perfect beverage. I’ve compiled a short list of some of them for you here. Hope you enjoy J.

For this one, you’ll need 2 ounces of Butterscotch Schnapps, ½ an ounce of Amaretto Almond Liqueur, 5 ounces of Caffe D’Vita’s Premium Hot Cocoa Mix and 1 ounce of whipped cream.

Pour the butterscotch schnapps, amaretto and hot chocolate into a mug or spiffy looking Irish Coffee glass if you’ve got one and stir it all together. Top it with whipped cream and serve it. Sometimes I’ll put a sliver of strawberry on the rim of the glass for a garnish—it’s up to you. You can also use one of those icing-filled cookie sticks as stirrers.

Dreamy Chocolate Winter

The Dreamy Chocolate Winter is another one of my favorites (probably because it too involves Amaretto). You’ll need an ounce of Irish Cream, 1 ounce of Kahlua (my parents make great homemade Kahlua…so I’m predisposed to think it’s the best choice) an ounce of Amaretto and 6 ounces of Caffe D’Vita’s Premium Hot Cocoa.

Just add all of the ingredients together and stir it. This one has so many tastes going on that I would try it first before adding any whipped cream. Maybe some cinnamon would go well on top.

Godiva Peppermint Patty
Because he was always woefully addicted to Thin Mints whenever my sister would sell Girl Scout cookies, this one instantly makes me think of my dad. You’ll need about ½ a cup of Caffe D’Vita’s Premium Hot Cocoa, 1 shot of peppermint schnapps, and 1 shot of Godiva liqueur.

Pour the hot cocoa into a brandy snifter and add the liqueur and schnapps. Sit back and swirl them together. The original recipe calls for whipped cream, but I think it looks tacky in the glass and takes away from that spark of peppermint you get from the drink. It’s up to you.

Caffe D’Vita’s products have a long shelf life, are kosher, are quick to make, and can be used with either a blender or granita. The premium ingredients are guaranteed to produce accurate serving results every time.

Confessions of a Cappuccino Aficionado

It is now December…and that makes me a very, very cold individual.

I don’t mean this in a Scrooge-like way…I love the holidays. I love that this is the time of year we get to be with the ones we love and celebrate, with each other and I thoroughly enjoy the decorations and baked treats that come with the holidays. My issue is with the weather. I am a tropical creature. I was designed to soak in the sun on the beach with a margarita in my hand. There was never a time that I recall authorizing this sudden shiver-inducing weather shift…it just happens.

There is, however, a silver lining to this chill-you-to-the-bone-ness that we like to refer to as “winter”: I now have an excuse to drink all of the cappuccino and hot chocolate I want. This is the time of year where I can freely indulge in the steamy spicy sweetness of a classic chai or the bright and fresh aroma of peppermint mocha…and that, in and of itself, is something to be holly and jolly about.

When I’m in the mood to snuggle up with a hot mug of cappuccino, the only brand I turn to is Caffe D’Vita. A family-run business whose reputation is matched only by the quality of their products, Caffe D’Vita has been gracing dinner tables and firesides for over 37 years. Each of their delicious, instant hot and cold beverage mixes are made with premium ingredients (without all of the trans fats, hydrogenated oils or gluten you find in competitors’ recipes) and they have a long shelf life, so your favorite instant beverage will last you throughout the holiday season.

Sugar-Free Eggnog

My grandfather is a twinkle-eyed twelve year-old during the holidays. I say this with more love and respect than you can imagine, of course, but facts are facts. He answers the phone with a “Gobble-Gobble” on Thanksgiving, scheming with the aim at shocking/scaring my Aunt Stacy one way or another. One time, a couple of years ago, he got up from the table and snuck out of the house. Minutes later, he returned with a clean-shaven face (something he hasn’t sported since his twenties). Stacy nearly fell out of her chair.

His enigmatic, sprite-like sense of humor has only become wonkier with age, and when you mix a little brandy into the equation, he is positively relentless. He orders “sky-juice” at restaurants in lieu of water and when relatives call bidding tidings of great joy, he tells my grandmother that, if it’s his girlfriend, he is not home.

Come Christmas time, he nearly dances a jig when eggnog hits the stores. To my grandmother’s chagrin, he bustles about stocking their refrigerator with as many cartons of eggnog as he can possibly fit. The twinkle in his eye grows brighter and the pranks on Stacy become more frequent.

The discovery of diabetes however, has understandably hindered this excitement. But fortunately, I recently found out that you can now make a traditional or “cooked” version of his favorite holiday treat, eggnog by using Caffe D’Vita’s Sugar-Free (containing Splenda) French Vanilla Cappuccino mix. Here’s the recipe:

Ingredients for Eggnog: 4 separated egg yolks 4 separated egg whites 1/3 cup of Caffe D’Vita’s Sugar-Free French Vanilla mix 3 ounces of bourbon 1 teaspoon of freshly grated nutmeg

Preparation:

In a bowl gradually add the 1/3 cup of Caffe D’Vita’s Sugar-Free French Vanilla mix and egg yolks and continue to beat the mixture until it is completely dissolved. Add bourbon and nutmeg and stir. Beat the mixture until stiff peaks form. In a bowl beat the egg yolks until they lighten in color. Gradually add the 1/3 cup of Caffe D’Vita’s Sugar-Free French Vanilla mix. Continue to beat the mixture until it is completely dissolved. Set it aside.

In a medium saucepan, over high heat, combine the egg and Vanilla mixture. Warm everything in the pot and cook until the mixture reaches 160 degrees Fahrenheit. Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the bourbon. Pour everything into a medium mixing bowl.

Beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Whisk the egg whites into the chilled mixture. For a final touch, serve the eggnog with a cinnamon stick or a sprig of mint. Chill everything and serve.

Caffe D’Vita: Stuff to do Before the Chill Ends

Layer on snuggly fashion accessories, buy some Uggs and try something steamy! Cool winter mornings, with a nip in the air and cozy evenings are but fleeting guests for another few weeks with the U.S. well into winter weather. While it might be bliss to park yourself in front of that fireplace and wile away your time, why not make the best of the wintry weather before it’s too late? There are a host of activities and list of things that you could do before the weather turns and springs on you.

Heat things up, pun intended, spend a few extra hours under the covers, indulge in a romantic evening in front of a fire or just enjoy the cozy warmth of a loved ones arms. Lose some fun-loving bets at board games or even cuddle up and watch that romantic movie. Get together with friends and family and build a cozy fire a warm for informal evening at home. It’s as close to heaven as one can get.

Caffe D’Vita: Smoothies are for Marathons

In the last three years I’ve become a marathoner and I’m looking to run the race of my life soon. If you think smoothies are delicious and you like to workout strenuously, like I do, then keep reading.

I realize that smoothies might not be ideal in January where you live. But I live in Orlando, Florida where the weather is always perfect so it is completely acceptable for me to drink smoothies all year around. My suggestion to you is to pretend like you live in Orlando and end your workouts with a smoothie no matter what it is like outside.

I have been into smoothies for some time now. For a summer in college I worked at a place that made smoothies and I have likened myself an expert ever since. Smoothies are one of the easiest ways to replenish your body after a hard workout or long run.

My goal when I make a smoothie is to put back as much energy into my body as I can to replace those that I just used during my exercise.

These days I may add: Frozen Black Berries, Frozen Mango Chunks, fresh Kiwis, fresh Banana, some 100% Pomegranate Juice, protein powder, or a handful of slivered almonds. But all smoothies should begin with Caffe D’Vita’s Vanilla Base (link to website) A good rule of thumb is that I tend to follow is that a smoothie should have a variety of colors before it is blended

Using either cubed or crushed ice with a traditional blender works very well, although I like my smoothies thick but am too impatient to consume with a spoon..

Hopefully you found this helpful. For the most part though, all it takes are some good Caffe D’Vita powdered mix ingredients and a blender.

If You’ve Never Had a Smoothie Before, Now Might be a Good Time to Start

If you’ve never had a smoothie before, now might be a good time to start. Smoothies can be just about anything you want them to be, from a slushy fruit beverage to a creamy milkshake-like thick vitamin-packed treat. Though the smoothie boom is often associated with the 1970s and 1980s, it’s a term that actually goes back to at least the 1940s, when cookbooks for the blender offered recipes for pineapple and banana smoothies. Some smoothies are healthier than others, but even the most basic smoothie is obviously better for you than canned drinks, not to mention more filling and satisfying, so you tend to consume less.

I love smoothies and I am always out there on the lookout for other new and exciting and healthy refreshments. I recently discovered Caffe D’Vita’s Smoothie mixes. I’m excited about these Smoothie mixes because they are made with a combination of a great creamer, premium ingredients, and unique fruit flavors that produces an outstanding smoothie. Go ahead make a smoothie with Caffe D’Vita’s Smoothie mix or add your favorite fruits and even some protein powder to one of Caffe D’Vita’s base smoothie mixes. You’ll soon discover just how versatile Caffe D’Vita’s Fruit Cream Smoothie mix can be.

Caffe D’Vita’s Fruit Cream Smoothies are low in fat, have no hydrogenated oils, no trans fat, and are gluten free. The Caffe D’Vita brand is associated with a “healthy, active lifestyle” but I just love smoothies for the taste.

What is a Chai Latte?

The word “chai” means “tea” in many Asian and European languages but in North America most people are referring to “masala chai” when they ask for “chai”.

Masala chai is a black tea brewed with a mixture of aromatic Indian spices and herbs; usually cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, pepper, anise seed and a touch of honey.  A Chai Latte is an excellent sweet, spicy and creamy drink made with steamed milk or cream. They are super yummy!

A chai latte (sometimes called chai tea latte) is a latte made with a masala chai tea concentrate and steamed milk.  Essentially it is a latte that replaces the espresso part with a masala chai tea concentrate instead.

Chai is a spiced black tea. So it’s basically a spiced tea with the steamed milk. It does contain caffeine and is sweetened but it still contains some of the healthy qualities of tea. Chai lattes are creamy, sweet, spicy, and delicious! A Chai latte is an alternative to espressos, cappuccinos and standard lattes and is great hot or cold.

Caffe D’Vita’s  Enchanted Chai Tea Lattes are a comforting blend of exotic tea, spices and milk that can be enjoyed anytime, delicious hot, iced or blended.

Celebrities who enjoy our Enchanted Chai Tea Lattes include Hayden Panettiere, Adrian Brody, Bruce Willis, Steven Spielberg, Paula Abdul, Kristen Chenoweth, and Travis Barker.

Smoothies: They’re Good for You – Here Are Four New Recipes

Fresh made smoothies provide an excellent source of bio-available vitamins and minerals which partner with enzymes and co-enzymes. Vitamins activate enzymes. Without the vitamins they simply cannot work the way they’re intended. Enzymes are essential for absorbing, digesting, and converting food. Enzymes produce energy at the cellular level and are critical for most of the metabolic activities taking place in your body.

Your body can absorb more of the vitamins and minerals than if you ate the fruits and vegetables by themselves.. Many of the nutrients are stuck in the fiber and by blending fruits and vegetables; you break down the fiber and release the vital nutrients into a form your body can more easily use.

Not to mention smoothies taste great and are refreshing and have their own benefits, and kids are more likely to drink these than to sit down and actually consume the amounts of fruits and/or vegetables they should. As interest in health and nutrition grows, more and more people are trying protein smoothies as a way to lose weight or enhance their sports performance. Boosting metabolism: by replacing certain meals with smoothies may help you reduce your daily calories, which can help you lose weight and build muscle.

If you’re getting tired of the same old normal bland smoothie try something fun and new, try out these new recipes. All you need is a blender Caffe D’Vita Vanilla Bean Powder and the ingredients for the smoothie that you want to make. These all take under 5 minutes and taste magical!

Chocolate-Peanut Butter Banana Split
2 Tablespoons of Caffe D’Vita Classic Cream Smoothie Vanilla Bean powder
1 medium sized banana I/2 cup of plain Greek yogurt
1 tbsp of peanut butter
1 teaspoon of chocolate

Strawberry Banana Fusion
2 Tablespoons of Caffe D’Vita Classic Cream Smoothie Vanilla Bean powder
1 Cup of plain Greek yogurt
½ cup of fresh strawberries
½ medium sized banana
1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon

Caribbean Sensation
2 Tablespoons of Caffe D’Vita Classic Cream Smoothie Vanilla Bean powder
1 cup of fresh mango
1 cup of fresh pineapple
1/2 cup of plain Greek yogurt

Tropical Blast

Caffe D’Vita Smoothie, a Nice Change of Pace in the Mornings

I have managed to stick to my goal of getting healthy for a whole month now. Not that I haven’t cheated. I have. More than I would probably like to admit. That whole 30th birthday week was pretty much a fattening food and quite a bit of wine free-for-all. But two weeks of guilt and lots of exercise and I am finally back on track.

That being said on occasion I am beginning to crave something different in the mornings on occasion. 4 weeks of eating yogurt for breakfast and a girl starts to want something different. Go figure!!

Smoothies immediately came to mind because who doesn’t love a smoothie (beside my son who doesn’t love anything fruit related. It was at this point that I realized that I do not own a blender. How did this happen? Where have I gone wrong in my life? Where the heck is my blender?!! Oh yes. Now I remember. It blew up a couple years ago. There wasn’t actual shrapnel but there was smoke. That counts as an explosion in my book.

My morning fruit smoothie is a nice change of pace and a great way to eat bananas that are past their prime. You can throw any fruit in here, fresh or frozen. I just use what I have on hand. The kids loved it. Well, I should say my daughter loved it.

My Morning Fruit Smoothie
Ingredients:
1 cup hulled strawberries
1/2 cup blueberries
1 kiwi, peeled
1 mushy banana
1 6oz. container of honey Greek yogurt
1 T honey
1 ½ cups of ice
2-3 Oz of Caffe D’Vita Fruit Cream Smoothie Vanilla Base
Granola to top

Instructions
Set aside half of the container of yogurt and the granola for topping.
Blend the remaining ingredients in a blender or food processor until smooth. Separate into 4 glasses and top with yogurt and granola.

Enjoy!

Who Can Resist a Mug of Frothy Caffe D’Vita Hot Cocoa?

How can anybody not be drawn to a big mug of frothy hot chocolate which has been attacked by a generous dollop of whipped cream and topped off with marshmallows? I feel it is my lifetime global obligation to frequent as many hot chocolate selling establishments, and consume as much hot chocolate as I can!  Well somebody has to do it!

Hot Chocolate is great especially in the winter time when it’s cold outside I look forward to coming inside where it’s warm and enjoy a nice cup of hot chocolate. I mean who doesn’t love hot chocolate? Some of the best memories I have as a kid are drinking hot chocolate with my parents.

As an adult I’ve done some serious research into the best hot chocolates on the market and I must say that the best hot cocoa I’ve ever gleefully thrown back has been Caffe D’Vita’s Premium hot cocoa.

I used to love homemade hot chocolate, and the ritual of stirring dark, rich, unsweetened cocoa powder and sugar on the stove. But I quickly lost interest the first time I tried one of Caffe D’Vita’s gourmet hot chocolate mix. Caffe D’Vita uses Dutch processed European chocolate in their premium hot cocoa. It is so rich in flavor and at the same time soothing and creamy.

Caffe D’Vita’s Premium hot cocoa is low in fat, has no hydrogenated oils, has no Trans fat and its gluten free. Unlike other supermarket version, these mixes are dreamy rich and packed with everything that’s right and good about one of the world’s favorite foods. True aficionados of chocolate will appreciate the incredibly complex flavor of this seductively rich, cocoa. Because of its premium cocoa and rich, velvety creamer you only use water to make.

Those with a serious sweet tooth but watching their sugar intake will also love Caffe D’Vita’s premium sugar free hot cocoa.

Caffe D’Vita’s sugar free hot cocoa is a chocolaty-sweet sugar free version of our premium hot cocoa and is sweetened with Splenda. Our sugar free hot cocoa mix is a surprisingly good alternative for those who need to reduce their sugar intake. Our sugar free hot cocoa uses the finest flavorings & ingredients and is the best instant sugar free hot cocoa available. It is low in hydrogenated oils, has no Trans fat, and is gluten free & wheat free!

Grandpa’s St. Patrick’s Day Advice About Irish Coffee

Grandpa’s trick knee told him a cold snap was coming, so he would start mulling over the fundamentals of hot alcohol.

Safety first, he would say. The first thing to look out for with hot drinks is the heat. The last thing you need, as a hostess sweating to entertain the guests inevitably crammed into your gracious kitchen, is for one of the gals to catch her sweater on fire. The reek of charred cashmere displeases. If you want to drink hot cocoa with peppermint Schnapps, topped off with Reddi-wip, then I want to see your ID, and I also want you to know that Reddi-wip cans may be flammable at a high temperature. A can of Reddi-wip does not count as a fire extinguisher. In fact, Reddi-wip may itself be flammable at a high temperature.

Another note on applied thermodynamics: In terms of the quality of the beverage experience, the problem is not the heat but the tepidity. They’re hot drinks, not warm drinks. The glow of the liquor should radiate through the purging scorch of the mixer and the good tingle of the seasonings. Get the drinks close to bubbling, and make them small. Served in large portions, hot drinks turn gaggingly unpalatable down the stretch as sweetness gets sticky and sediment piles into your epiglottis. Always pre-warm the cup.

For an Irish Coffee you need an 8-ounce stemmed glass in the shape of a tulip … The glass forces you into the correct proportions … You don’t want the coffee-to-whiskey ratio to be any greater than 3:1

According to the National Institute of Health, alcohol decreases your core body temperature. According to them the sweltering stuff will affect you sooner than if you drank the same drink cold, chilled, iced. In those conditions the stomach must warm the stuff up to body temperature before absorption can take place; taken hot, it will start getting to you at once. It’s always best to plan ahead according to your individual needs and foibles. It might be prudent to ensure that you have a designated driver.

But go no further, no fancier. Caffe D’Vita Irish Cream Cappuccino makes it so easy. Sometimes there is simply no need to be either clever or original.

I recently visited a friend’s home who served the best Irish coffee on earth. Its bottom layer a blend of Caffe D’Vita Espresso and Powdered Caffe D’Vita Irish Cream Cappuccino mix add Irish whiskey to taste! And then a final broad band of heavy cream that had been brought to a quasi-solid state in a cold cocktail shaker; it was fluffy magic and offered invigorating contrast with the steaming drink.

Salute! – Raise Your Espresso Martini, Glass!

This drink is an alcoholic eye-opener with a sophisticated twist. It shouldn’t come as any surprise that espresso aficionados would somehow incorporate their favorite coffee products into at least one of its prepared drinks. We’ve gone right ahead and created the Espresso Martini.

While obviously not for a martini purist, the Espresso Martini, chilled and poured into a martini glass, features a healthy dose of vanilla vodka, a splash of Kahlua for its silky texture and creamy flavor, and a double shot of Caffe D’Vita espresso.

Caffe D’Vita’s espresso really makes the difference so your martini is not overly sweet like when made with espresso-flavored vodka. We love to serve our Espresso Martinis in the bright sunshine during brunch over the weekend at an outdoor table. The Espresso Martini makes for an interesting alternative to the Bloody Mary or Mimosa. An alcoholic eye opener with a sophisticated twist, coupled with a plate of French toast and eggs makes for a pretty solid Sunday brunch.

Caffe D’Vita’s espresso is also perfect for Mochas, Lattes or using as a gourmet ingredient for baking or cooking. It’s naturally roasted and processed European style espresso that can add outstanding coffee flavor to any drink!

We rather enjoy the inherent sophistication of drinking something out of a martini glass? Everything looks sophisticated when it’s in a martini glass. That’s just science…right?

How to make the Espresso Martini:
A double shot of Caffe D’Vita’s Premium European Style Espresso!
(Don’t use espresso-flavored vodka.)
A full pour of vanilla-flavored vodka
Dash of Kahlua
Combine ingredients and shake over ice; pour into chilled martini glass.

Enjoy!

Caffe D’Vita Irish Cream Cappuccino Product Review by Aimee Plesa Food Blogger

By Aimee Plesa
Those of you who know me personally know how much I love getting freebies and reviewing products. Last week, Caffe D’Vita was sponsoring a small contest on their Facebook page in honor of St. Patrick’s Day and I was lucky enough to be one of the handful of lucky winners. My bounty? A sample packet of their Irish cream cappuccino. My sample arrived late last week and I am happy to admit that I am enjoying my mug of cappuccino as I write this review.

Irish cream is traditionally a liqueur made from a blend of Irish whiskey, cream and other ingredients, such as coffee. The most widely known brand is Bailey’s Irish Cream. It is commonly served in coffee, as an ingredient in mixed drinks or served as a shot. Caffe D’Vita’s cappuccino mix gives you the delicious flavor of Irish cream and coffee without the alcohol.

I must admit, I am fussy when it comes to my coffee drinks. I don’t care for an overly strong coffee flavor and a too strong brew seriously upsets my stomach. I was pleasantly surprised that Caffe D’Vita’s Irish cream cappucino offered up exactly what I was hoping for-rich coffee flavor without the painful side effects. The flavor of the Irish cream was clearly evident but not overpowering. It was a beautiful marriage of flavors that pleased my taste buds while warming my belly. The best part of Caffe D’Vita’s Irish cream cappuccino was how easy it is to make. Simply heat a mug of water, stir in the powder mix and enjoy! No fancy machines or kitchen gadgets are needed to enjoy this beverage. This makes it a great product for us busy moms.

Caffe D’Vita boasts that it uses Arabica coffee and the finest flavorings and ingredients available, and this shines through in the delicious taste of their cappuccino. Their products are low in fat, contain no hydrogenated oils or Trans fats and are gluten free. I have tried other coffee mixes that use hydrogenated oils in their products and I am always left with an oily residue in my mouth after drinking a mug. Not this time! The drink goes down smoothly and doesn’t leave a funky film behind.

Caffe D’Vita’s Irish cream cappuccino is available for purchase on their website for the home consumer, cafes and retail establishments. In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, they are currently running a special where you can purchase 3 canisters of their Irish cream cappuccino and 3 canisters of their mocha cappuccino for $25.00. Each canister weighs a full pound and a case (6 canisters) typically costs $33.90. Custom built cases are $36.00. This is a great savings for cappuccino lovers! If you know you can’t drink this much coffee, share the savings with your friends and split the case. At $6.00 a canister, it will save you some serious pennies over stopping at the local coffee shop to get your daily java buzz!

It’s Late – Three Great Coffee Substitutes!

If it’s getting late at night or you’re just trying to change from coffee or cappuccino, there are plenty of delicious java substitutions. I have no desire to quit drinking coffee, I love drinking my favorite cappuccinos, and I enjoy a cup most days each week. But I’m a big believer in moderation and of carefully monitoring personal habits. I usually have a cup in the morning and one more after lunch.

These are my favorite drinks for those times when I want something really good to drink but need slight break in routine.

Hot chocolate: My favorite sub for coffee is a hot chocolate. Caffe D’Vita’s Hot Cocoa is made from Dutch processed European chocolate. It is “so” rich in flavor while soothing and it tastes wonderful. Hot chocolate will give you a bit of a lift, and the warm, cozy feeling you get from coffee sans the jolt. And an iced chocolate on a warm day is almost as lovely a treat as an iced coffee.

Green tea: If you are in need of a change in flavor profile entirely, try Caffe D’Vita’s Green Tea Smoothie. It’s a great happy medium with a pleasant taste. It serves up a subtle, but noticeable caffeine buzz. And, as you’ve probably heard, green tea contains plenty of antioxidants, which are said to protect against free radicals and cancer.

Chai Tea Lattes Caffe D’Vita’s Enchanted Chai Tea Latte has a moderate amount of caffeine and it’s a real comforting blend of exotic tea, spices and milk that is soothing to the soul can be enjoyed anytime. It’s delicious hot, iced or blended.

The Best Healthy Snacks for Grown-Ups

Studies show that snacking is the key to keeping weight off, but only if you eat the right kind of snacks.

While it might seem that cutting out snacks might be a good way to lose weight, eliminating them can mean being overly hungry at the next meal (which usually leads to overindulgence).

There is a healthy way to snack, which means choosing healthy options and forgoing late-night snacks, according to the Mayo Clinic. I like a snack, which will fill me up, but not so much that it will tire me out (I need energy from my snacks, not a slump).

Generally I like to make my snacks a mix of protein and whole grains or protein and fruit or veggies, and most of all I, like a kid, like a snack to be fun to eat and enjoyable.

Without further ado, check out some healthy snacks for grown-ups that I regularly eat and enjoy. (All of these would be healthier than cookies-and-milk options for kids, too.) Just because you’re an adult, doesn’t mean that an afternoon snack should be ignored.

Nuts, trail mix and nut bars: Not only are nuts (and seeds) delicious in a variety of ways, but they are high in proteins and healthy fats, which keep you satisfied between meals. Keeping mixed nuts (try unsalted, raw nuts instead of the roasted, salted kind for a fresh taste and an even healthier option) or nut bars around for hungry times can keep you going during a workout, or through the morning.

Berries: Blackberries, blueberries, strawberries and raspberries are low-calorie, high-flavor snack packed with antioxidants, and there aren’t many people who find them unappealing. I eat a small bowl of these mixed fruits one berry at a time, to both enjoy each one (no two blueberries taste exactly alike) and slow down the snacking. Berries keep well in the fridge for almost a week, and frozen berries are almost as tasty as fresh (and are a great cool-down snack after a workout). Berries, especially wild ones (keep an eye out for these at the farmers market in a couple of months), are so healthy that they are considered to be in the too 10 healthiest foods.

Protein drink mixes: A delicious smoothie can be a super-satisfying snack and feel like a treat. They can also fit the niche for when you feel like something a little sweet to drink instead of chew.

All fruit smoothies: Similar to protein drink mixes, a fruit smoothie made with some berries, mango or pear can be a sweet treat It will definitely beat a late-afternoon sugar craving.

Ingredients:

1 cup hulled strawberries 1/2 cup blueberries ½ cup blackberries, ½ cup raspberries 1 kiwi, peeled 1 6oz. container of honey Greek yogurt 1 T honey 1 ½ cups of ice 2-3 Oz of Caffe D’Vita Fruit Cream Smoothie Vanilla Base Granola to top

Instructions Set aside half of the container of yogurt and the granola for topping.

Blend the remaining ingredients in a blender or food processor until smooth. Separate into 4 glasses and top with yogurt and granola. Enjoy!

Chocolate Lover’s Dream Come True

By: Sue Thoms

The latest health news is a chocolate lover’s dream: People who eat chocolate regularly are thinner than those who don’t, a study shows.

You can thank researchers at the University of California, San Diego, for this one.

The authors of the study came up with the hypothesis that regular chocolate consumption was calorie-neutral. That means the health benefits from eating small amounts of chocolate would offset the added calories.

What they found was even better than they expected. The adults in their study who ate chocolate more days per week were thinner than the occasional chocolate imbibers.

Even more surprising, the chocolate eaters consumed more calories and did not exercise more. When you combine this with a recent report that popcorn is loaded with antioxidants, it adds up to a good week for snackers.

In the chocolate study, the weight difference for chocolate consumers was not huge, but it was significant, the researchers said. They couldn’t find any behavior differences that might explain their finding in terms of calories in vs. calories out.

They found eating chocolate five times a week, compared with not eating any, was associated with about a one-point drop in body mass index. That would amount to about seven pounds for a person 5′ 10″, or about five pounds for a five-footer, according to a report in MedPage Today.

“Our findings appear to add to a body of information suggesting that the composition of calories, not just the number of them, matters for determining their ultimate impact on weight,” Beatrice Golomb, associate professor in the university’s Department of Medicine, said in a news release. “In the case of chocolate, this is good news – both for those who have a regular chocolate habit, and those who may wish to start one.

The researchers based their study on 1,000 people, assessing their body mass index and dietary information that they provided.

The study does not prove that chocolate caused the weight difference, the MedPage Today article said. However, the researchers said the findings were “intriguing” and may lead to further investigation of chocolate’s metabolic benefits.

This is not the first study linking chocolate to better health. Chocolate, which has high amounts of antioxidants, has been associated with lower rates of heart disease and strokes.

Smoothies Aren’t Just for Fun Anymore

There’s some physiology to it, having breakfast prevents you from bottoming out and getting too hungry. Psychologically, you know you started the day off right. When breakfast becomes part of your regimen and feel that you’re making a change for the better. Nutritionally, when you have breakfast, there’s more of a guarantee that you’re getting the nutrients you need every day.

Eating breakfast gives you a mental advantage. When you start off your day, your body needs fuel. If you haven’t had any food, by lunch you’ll start to feel fatigued, cognitive studies, particularly on children, tell us what happens if you don’t eat, you lose focus and concentration as well as the ability to think and problem-solve.

Without eating breakfast, you’re more vulnerable to cravings and less likely to make healthy choices in the morning and throughout the day. That’s a disaster — whether you’re on a diet or just eating for good health.

Smoothies are an easy and healthy breakfast option. Just throw a few ingredients into your blender and in five minutes you’re ready to eat.

Just about every fast food restaurant has caught on to the smoothie fad and added them to menus. If you take that route make sure you check the nutrition content. Not all smoothies are made the same. Some includes sugar-laden yogurts and sometimes even ice cream.

The better option may be just to make your own smoothies at home. Then you’ll know exactly what ingredients are included.

Banana Strawberry Smoothie
Ingredients
1 ripe banana
5 large strawberries chopped
2.8 Oz Caffe D’Vita Vanilla Base Fruit Cream Smoothie Mix
1/4 cup old fashioned rolled oats
2 teaspoons flaxseed
4-5 Oz water or skim milk
1 1/2 cup ice

Directions
Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth

Healthy Green Drinks Growing in Popularity

Easy to make, ultra-healthy and tasty enough that kids will drink, those are the claims to fame of “green smoothies,” concoctions that combine a variety of fresh vegetables and fruits into healthy drinks.

As someone who didn’t eat many vegetables, I see the smoothies as a good way to get in a lot of vegetables because they taste good.

Most recipes start with Caffe D’Vita Vanilla Base or if I want a more fruity taste use mango, orange or strawberry banana as a base. To that I add greens like chard, spinach, lettuce, arugula or something similar and a variety of mixed berries, bananas, pears and other fruits. The general ratio is one-third vegetables, one-third fruit and one-third base mix.

Green smoothies have zoomed from fringe to mainstream. The popularity of green drinks is growing in a quantum way. If you spend only 10 minutes a day in the kitchen raw greens and fruit. It’s an easy way for the average American who owns a blender to dramatically increase her nutrition.”

Remember the average person gets only one to two servings of vegetables and fruits a day and many of those are cooked, which can destroy the enzymes and vitamins.
Also leafy greens, are rich sources of antioxidants and fiber, and provide vitamins A, C and K. Proponents of smoothies say they help with weight loss and boost immune systems and vitality, as well as improving skin quality.

A green smoothie is a great way to get servings of fruits and vegetables in our diets.”

Green smoothies make great meal replacements or snacks which include the recommended fruits and leafy green vegetables. They make an excellent beverage replacement for soda as they are nutrient-dense and don’t have all the added sugar. They will leave you filling fuller and more satisfied.

We recommend buying a high-powered blender, the better to truly liquefy the drinks. The blender is a big huge deal. You can totally tell a difference in how well it grinds things up.

After enjoying a green smoothie I just feel happier, and my mood is better. It’s something that helps me feel better, and it increases quality of life.

Blended Iced Coffee Quickly Gaining in Popularity

In the heat of summer, coffee drinkers throughout the world quickly shift their tastes to blended iced coffees which provides the flavor, caffeine and sustenance of roasted coffee in a more palatable form.

Long popular among coffee enthusiasts blended iced coffee is quickly gaining popularity among the general consumer audience as evidenced by the fact that it is available in fast food franchises and sold bottled in grocery stores. Coffee shops have perfected the art of sweet, dairy-based iced coffees. As a result, coffee shops ranging from local independents to major national chains now feature a variety of iced coffee drinks made from brewed coffee.

To fully understand the popularity of iced coffee, one must understand the preparation and serving methods. Proper iced coffee brewing involves using dissolved espresso into iced milk or water for a quick, fresh flavor. The resulting coffee can be served chilled, and is sweetened with syrup or sweet dairy flavors.

For many years consumers made blended iced coffee concentrate by soaking ground coffee and chicory with water in a mayonnaise jar. The next day, the grounds would be filtered out. The result was a very strong coffee concentrate that was mixed with milk and sweetened.

All sounds like a lot of fuss huh? But today we have Caffe D’Vita blended ice coffee mixes which makes is super easy to make your favorite blended ice coffee.

Caffe D’Vita blended ice coffee mixes are low in fat without any hydrogenated oils. Caffe D’Vita blended ice coffee mixes contain no Trans fat and are gluten free.

Caffe D’Vita uses only the finest Arabica coffees along with a unique creamer and other premium ingredients in our seven flavors: Mocha Latte, Caramel Latte, Java Chip Latte, Toffee Coffee Latte, Coffee Latte, Vanilla Latte and Double Mocha Latte. Our mixes are quick and easy to make, just combine with ice and water and blend smooth and creamy.

Summer is for Smoothies

When you’ve got amazing summer fruit, there are more ways to enjoy it than just eating it out of hand — one of the most fun ways is by making smoothies. It’s incredibly easy to take strawberries, blueberries, peaches, melon or cherries and blend them into a drink that’s creamy and satisfying. Plus there’s room for creativity. Start with Caffe D’Vita’a Smoothie Vanilla Base Mix and go from there.

Try mixing with yogurt, oats, coconut milk, buttermilk or even almond butter for adding texture. A delicious smoothie can be a super-satisfying snack and feel like a treat. They can also fit the niche when you feel like something a little sweet to drink instead of eating.  It will definitely beat a late-afternoon sugar craving.

I love fruit, but I hate being disappointed by fruit. I bought a box of raspberries, carefully inspected, but later found to have lots of soggy berries hidden in it.  The melon that smelled wonderful at the store and then turned out to be as hard inside. But a smoothie smooths away all those fruity missteps.  If your fruit disappoints, fling it into the blender with some compatible juice and a few chunks of any other fruit you may have around, or a little vanilla yogurt and you wind up with a delicious cocktail that’s healthy besides .

And, joy of joys, I discovered that bags of frozen mixed fruit are available to lend a little variety and excitement to the mix, blend and drink.

My favorite smoothie has turned out to be one made with cranberries, apples and raspberries (and a little apple juice).

OK, here’s a tip. Buy the really, really fat straws and you’ll have no problem sipping up that delicious fruit smoothie.

How a Frozen Banana Smoothie Might Save Your Life

I don’t know about you, but I always end up with spotty bananas in my kitchen when they get to this stage. I chop them up, throw them in a container and put them in the freezer.

According to a Japanese scientific study, fully ripened bananas with dark patches produce a substance called TNF (Tumor Necrosis Factor) which has the ability to combat abnormal cells. Apparently, the more dark patches a banana has, the higher its immunity enhancement quality will be. So, extremely ripe bananas actually possess an anti-cancer quality. I always thought they were too ripe and too sweet to eat. Now I put bananas in a smoothie to help stay healthy! Bananas make brilliant smoothies: just the right mix of sweetness and frostiness.

4 ripe bananas, peeled and chopped
2 tbsp tahini
2 tsp toasted sesame seeds
2 tbsp of Caffe D’Vita Vanilla Base Smoothie mix
½ cup crushed ice

Place the bananas on a tray and freeze for at least 2 hours or until almost solid. Put the bananas in a blender with the tahini, crushed ice, Caffe D’Vita’s Vanilla Base Smoothie and blend until smooth. Pour into glasses and serve. Sprinkle sesame seeds on top.

Five Tips to Enjoying Frozen Drinks and Avoiding Calorie Land Mines

On the warmest days, nothing beats the heat like an icy beverage. It’s OK to indulge in the occasional frozen treat, and it’s possible to revel in them on a more regular basis, especially if you don’t mind a little sugar. For those looking for sugar free drinks try Caffe D’Vita’s sugar free mixes. Using Splenda®, our products are made without sugar, and are low in calories and have the same great taste without compromising flavor.

SMOOTHIES

Made with real fruit, smoothies can have some redeeming value, but serving size is important. The bigger you make your smoothie, the more calories. On the warmest days, nothing beats the heat like an icy beverage, but moderation is the key. It’s OK to indulge in the occasional frozen treat, and it’s possible to revel in them on a more regular basis. But, watch your portion size.

Tips to keeping it healthy

1• Pay attention to serving size.

2• Read the ingredients. Code words to avoid: whipped cream, creamy and drizzled.

3• Don’t make it a daily habit. If you are going for a full-calorie splurge, make it an occasional indulgence of no more than once a week.

4• Make it yourself to better control what you are consuming. Turn your smoothie craving into a healthy way to eat by making smoothies at home with seasonal fruit and ice. Consider adding nonfat yogurt, and if you are feeling adventurous, add spinach or kale to the blender to pump up the nutrients.

5• Beware of mixed adult beverages. An average margarita has just under 400 calories, pina coladas even more. Try a lower-calorie beverage by combining equal parts wine and club soda for just 80 calories and half the alcohol of a glass of wine.

A Refreshing Green Smoothie Perfect for a Hot Summer Day

I love watermelon and it’s one of my favorite summer fruits. Watermelon contains 0.7 milligrams of iron in just two cups. It’s also a great source of vitamin C with 28% Daily Value in two cups. It’s hydrating as well.

Watermelon is perfectly okay to use in a green smoothie. The idea that watermelon must always be eaten on its own and never mixed is obviously not the case.

I really like adding parsley to smoothies as it is also a great source of iron. One cup of parsley contains 3.7 milligrams of iron providing up to 10% DV of iron for a vegan/vegetarian woman or almost 50% for an omnivore male.

I used frozen strawberries to make my smoothie a little colder, but you can use fresh if you prefer. If it is a particularly hot summer day, a frozen strawberry and watermelon smoothie is “heaven-sent”. Strawberries are a great source of vitamin C with 94% DV in just one cup!

With just 160 calories in this recipe, you can enjoy it as an afternoon refreshment, or before a meal.

Refreshing Watermelon-Mint Green Smoothie Recipe with Parsley

2 cups watermelon
11 fresh mint leaves
1 cup whole fresh or frozen strawberries
1 cup fresh Italian (flat leaf) parsley
¼ cup Caffe D’Vita Vanilla Base Smoothie Mix

Add all the ingredients to your blender and blend on high for 30 seconds or until the smoothie is creamy.

This smoothie is also a rich source of folate, vitamins B1 – B6, vitamin K, copper, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus and potassium.

Smoothies May Help Those Struggling With Obesity

Promising results were reported from a study that found that yogurt, fruit shakes, and smoothies make people feel full longer and ease the craving to over eat.

Fruit smoothies provide people with a full feeling after consuming. With that sense of fullness and hunger-satisfaction, people watching their weight were found to crave less food.

Overweight and obesity are primarily driven by over-availability of food and an increasing sedentary lifestyle. It is believed that reduction of casual snacking between meals and reduction in meals size due to decreased appetite will have a major impact on prevention and reduction of obesity. Fresh fruit, yogurt and smoothies in the stomach or small intestine have been shown to enhance satiety and therefore can trigger satiety.

Yogurt, fruit shakes, smoothies make people feel full longer and ease the craving to over eat. Healthy eating should be part of everyone’s lifestyle.

Four Easy Hints to Making Healthier Smoothies

Smoothies are as close to a perfect meal as you can get – delicious, nutritious, and fast. They make a filling meal or snack to help your heart, pump your workout, juice your brain, or boost your mood. Smoothies are indeed the perfect quick breakfast or healthy snack. Just put a cup or so of fruit and a splash of dairy whizzed in the blender with a little ice and fruit juice.

Here are four easy fixes to make over your smoothies so they’re healthy, satisfying, and of course, delicious.

1. Freeze your fruit. Cut up chunks of peaches, plums, nectarines, strawberries, cherries, pineapple and/or apricots, and then spread them out on a tray and freeze them until firm. Store in a plastic bag until you’re ready to use them. You can freeze blueberries and raspberries whole. Frozen fruit will help keep your smoothies thick and frosty.

2. Toss in some protein. Try adding whey protein to breakfast smoothies as an easy-to-digest protein that contains all the essential amino acids. Of course you can also use milk or =yogurt-non-fat, low-fat, or full-fat, it’s up to you. Try almond milk for a non-dairy alternative.

3. Add some coconut water. If you need to thin down your smoothie, forget using sugary fruit juice. Instead, try coconut water, the liquid from young coconuts, which is rich in potassium and electrolytes. You can buy coconut water prepackaged. Coconut water is incredibility refreshing by itself, too. Try it post workout.

4. Throw in an avocado. Bananas are a common addition to smoothies because they add sweetness, body and nutrients. But they’re also high in sugar. So if you’re trying to cut down on the sweet stuff or you prefer a less sweet smoothie, toss in a quarter or half an avocado, instead. You’ll get lots of potassium, B-complex vitamins, antioxidants, and fiber. And while avocados are high in fat, they contain oleic and linoleic acid that are effective in lowering LDL cholesterol and increasing healthy HDL cholesterol. Plus, they’re one of the best fruits (yes, they’re a fruit) for keeping hunger pangs at bay.

Our Pumpkin Tastes Like A Windy Day in a Cabin in Vermont

Caffe D’Vita’s Pumpkin Spice Cappuccino taste like a rather windy day in cabin in Vermont transported to your tongue. As fall approaches our senses pick up on so many wonderful sensations during the holiday season. We feel the cold air coming in, we see the leaves changing, and then there are the smells and tastes!

As a child, I remember distinct scents that would trigger that sense of comfort and the exciting time when you know “the holidays are here” with the scent of pumpkin pie lingering throughout the house.
The thing I have always liked about pumpkins is that they are a special food item that really offers a transition between holidays. We carve them up in October and then, in November, we bake them into pies and puddings, breads and muffins…pumpkin is in the air.

In this season, we coax the sweet scent and flavor of pumpkin for use in every possible way, from pies and muffins to candles and even lotions, soaps and cappuccinos. But isn’t that what’s great about ‘pumpkin’!

This holiday, enjoy that much-coveted pumpkin fix with Caffe D’Vita’s traditional Pumpkin Spice Cappuccino mix. Creamy and delicious, this cappuccino mix is excellent when served hot for the holidays and even goes well in a smoothie year-round.

Just place two teaspoons of Caffe D’Vita’s premium Pumpkin Spice Cappuccino mix into a 6-oz cup and add 5-oz of hot water. Stir thoroughly and top it with whipped cream lightly dusted with pumpkin spice, cinnamon, or nutmeg.

If you want to make a Pumpkin Spice Smoothie, blend 3-oz of water or milk, 3 large ice cubes and 3 teaspoons of Caffe D’Vita’s premium Pumpkin Spice Cappuccino mix into a blender.

Blend it until it’s smooth and pour it into a frosty glass. Top it with whipped cream and dust it with pumpkin spice, cinnamon, or nutmeg.

Putting Hot Chocolate In an Orange Mug Makes it Taste Better…

By Kim Meyer
The Inquisitor January 5, 2023
If you want a hot, steaming mug of hot cocoa you should consider putting it in an orange or cream colored mug. Why? Because researchers have found that hot cocoa tastes more flavorful in a cream or orange colored cup.

The study adds to the knowledge that there other factors which have nothing to do with actual food preparation that affects the taste of food.

Past studies have shown that taste is influenced by things other than the actual food itself.  Color of the plate, price on a bottle of wine, and the verbal description of a food can all influence people’s taste of food.

According to A Yahoo News, the study’s co-author Betina Piqueras-Fiszman, a researcher at the Universitat Politècnica de València in Spain and the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom said, “The color of the container where food and drink are served can enhance some attributes like taste and aroma.”

In order to conduct the study Piqueras-Fiszman and her colleagues asked 57 participants to enjoy some hot chocolate. They drank the hot cocoa out of four different plastic cups: white, cream, orange, and red. All the cups were lined white on the inside for the experiment.  The participants who drank from the cream or orange colored cups said their drink was more flavorful. Participants also said the orange and cream colored cups tasted better even though they said there was no difference in sweetness or aroma between the colored cups according to the study.

Wow! Amazing, how humans and our brains work!

Hot Cocoa Always Gets us Into the Valentine’s Day Spirit

Valentine’s Day was first associated with romantic love by Chaucer in the Middle Ages when the tradition of courtly love flourished. By the 15th century, it had evolved into an occasion in which lovers expressed their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery and sending greeting cards (known as “valentines”).Valentine’s Day symbols that are used today include the heart-shaped outline, doves, and the figure of the winged Cupid.
Valentine’s Day is growing in popularity or the excuse it gives us all to express a little of our romantic side. And there’s no better way to say “I love you!” than through the time-honored gift of chocolate. Yes, cards are fine and so are flowers – but let’s face it, you can’t eat or drink them. The act of sharing a divine and chocolaty Caffe D’Vita Mocha Cappuccino with the one you love is surely part and parcel of the day’s enjoyment.

Choose any or all six of our chocolate favorites. Sip a cup of White Chocolate Cappuccino, Chocolate Chai, Hot Cocoa, Sugar Free Hot Cocoa, Cocoa Freeze Smoothie, or White Chocolate Raspberry Cappuccino, each one excites the imagination.

So let’s think chocolate this Valentine’s Day and you never know where it all might lead! Certainly, the golden age of romance is alive and well in the range of Valentine’s Day offerings from Caffe D’Vita.

Our chocolate selection is always correct for Valentine’s Day and is perfect for all who are hopelessly head over heels in love. Customer Service and Premium Ingredients remain our greatest priorities as we continue to develop new and exciting products.

It’s Chai Tea Latte Time of Year

This time of year I really get into Chai Tea Latte. It’s a great alternative to cappuccino and espresso and besides I just love the way it tastes.

CHAI, pronounced tshai, with a long “i” as in the word tie, is the actual word for TEA in many countries.

Chai tea is a rich and complex beverage that has been savored for centuries in many parts of the world. It has become extremely popular in the West as people are becoming exposed to it in coffee and tea houses and restaurants and elsewhere where beverages are sold.

In its most basic form, Chai is black tea that is brewed strong with a combination of spices and is diluted with milk and sugar. The spices vary usually consist of cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, anise seedr and ginger. Chai tea is traditionally consumed hot and sweet. The sweetness is needed to bring out the full flavors of the spices.

Chai tea is wonderfully fragrant and soothing, but if you really want to kick back and indulge in a little “Arabian nights” I can only recommend: Chai Tea Latte or Chai Latte!

A Chai Latte is the spiced Chai tea mixed with milk that’s steamed. I love the soft foamy texture the steamed milk adds to the Chai.

For those times when you don’t want to make Chai tea from scratch, Caffe D’Vita Chai Tea Latte is a great alternative.

Smoothies – Not Just for Summer Anymore

Forgive me for this outrageously healthy sounding recipe, but it is a New Year, and therefore all New Year’s diet resolutions are still in force. I usually think of smoothies more as summertime desserts.

Lately, I’ve been experimenting with a different class of smoothies. Vegetable-based, just a little sweet, make them well suited for the season. Sometimes I throw in a little orange juice or a squirt of lemon, but otherwise I stick to local, seasonal ingredients. If you’d like to try making your own, here are some other healthy ingredients you might want to consider adding:

Kale or spinach, carrot, apple beet (roasted or raw), orange (peeled fruit or juice)
sweet potato (roasted), parsley, pineapple, celery, ginger, carrot.
Try to purchase locally when possible, it’s fresher.

Green Apple Smoothie
1 serving
5 minutes preparation time
1 tablespoon of Caffe D’Vita Vanilla Bean Classic Cream smoothie mix
1 apple (any local variety), quartered and cored
1 carrot
½ small bunch spinach (about 2 cups packed leaves and stems)
1 teaspoon honey
1 pinch ground cinnamon (optional)
3-4 ice cubes
¼ cup cold water

In a blender, combine Vanilla Bean Smoothie mix, apple, carrot, spinach, honey, cinnamon, (or whatever suites your fancy that day) with ice cubes and water. Puree until smooth. If needed, add more water to achieve desired consistency.

Chocolate is Good For You

Chocolate is actually good for you!There’s a reason that chocolate inspires gotta-have-it cravings for so many of us, perhaps more than any other food: It’s good for you!

“It’s actually good for your heart and also good for your blood pressure,” says Valentine Yanchou Njike, MD, MPH, of the Yale Griffin Prevention Research Center, who has researched cocoa’s effect on blood vessel function. Researchers have also found that phytochemicals in cocoa, which is used to make chocolate, may improve blood vessel function, slow blood clotting, improve insulin resistance and have protective effects against cancer.  And even though the labels say chocolate contains saturated fat, it’s actually the kind of fat that has little effect on your cholesterol levels.

The bottom line is that you don’t have to beat yourself up for craving chocolate if you enjoy it in moderation.

Here are some tips for getting a guilt-free chocolate fix.
1. Choose wisely.
How about chocolate instead of potato chips? Yes, indeed! The darker the chocolate, the more phytochemicals it contains. Because you’re eating this for pleasure.

have what you like in moderation,
2. Get a liquid fix.
Hot cocoa is another way to enjoy chocolate. Make your own using one of Caffe D’Vita’s hot cocoa or sugar free hot cocoa.
3. Savor it.
If you really love chocolate, slow down, enjoy it and savor every sip.

If you are interested in becoming a Caffe D’Vita foodservice distributor, we would be happy to provide you with the resources to market Caffe D’Vita products to your customers.

Caffe D’Vita’s Premium hot cocoa is low in fat, has no hydrogenated oils, no Trans fat and it gluten free. Unlike other supermarket versions, these mixes are dreamy rich and packed with everything that’s right and good about one of the world’s favorite foods.

True aficionados of chocolate will appreciate the incredibly complex flavor of this seductively rich, cocoa. Because of its premium cocoa and rich, velvety creamer you only have to use water to make it.

Those with a serious sweet tooth but watching their sugar intake will also love Caffe D’Vita’s premium sugar free hot cocoa.
Caffe D’Vita’s sugar free hot cocoa is a chocolaty-sweet sugar free version of our premium hot cocoa and is sweetened with Splenda®. Our sugar free hot cocoa mix is a surprisingly good alternative for those who need to reduce their sugar intake. Our sugar free hot cocoa uses the finest flavorings & ingredients and is the best instant sugar free hot cocoa available. It is has no hydrogenated oils, or Trans fats, and is gluten free!

Get Your Green on For Saint Patrick’s Day

This Saint Patrick’s Day make the perfect martini—try adding Caffe D’Vita’s Irish Cream cappuccino mix to the blend. Smooth and delicious, our Irish Creamtini is just sweet enough to counteract the bitter flavor of the gin or vodka without overpowering it.

Try this recipe:
In a metal martini shaker, add:
2 oz of prepared Caffe D’Vita Irish Cream mix
2 oz of vodka
A splash of very chilled Martini & Rossi Dry Vermouth
A lemon twist

Crushed Ice (a note about this: Cubed is fine, but Crushed will make it colder)
½ oz Vanilla syrup (this part is optional)

Take the glass out of the fridge (you should chill it for about 10 minutes before using it), and pour a small amount of the vermouth into it. Swirl the vermouth in the glass that the sides of the glass are coated. Discard the vermouth. Rim the glass with the lemon twist. Pour your gin or vodka into a shaker over lots of ice. Shake well until cold and pour into the martini glass. Squeeze the lemon, well, twist over the martini and balance it along the rim or just drop it in the glass the way you would in the case of a cosmo.

If you don’t like the lemon and cream flavor/texture combo, try rimming the glass with chocolate sauce and dusting a bit of cinnamon on top of the martini. You can use olives, but it’s not really recommended.

How to Trick Your Kids into Eating Spinach

I have never been much of a veggie eater. I generally have a raging sweet tooth and I’m pretty sure I passed my sweet tooth along to my children.

The problem with this is that vegetables are good for us and we should probably eat more of them even though they are not our favorite. It has been a recent goal of mine. I need to be a better role model for my kids so that they learn to have healthy and balanced eating habits as they get older.

The good news is my children all like fruit, which is why I decided that we are officially smoothie drinkers. Smoothies are a great way for us to get in the fruits and vegetables that we need and some days it’s the only thing I can actually get my little one to consume because she loves drinking anything through a straw.

Apparently straws are a fancy novelty when you’re a toddler – who knew? But, I digress…Here is one of our current favorite smoothie recipes – perfect for hiding veggies!

ORANGE BERRY SPINACH SMOOTHIE:

Ingredients:
1 tablespoon of Caffe D’Vita Vanilla Bean Classic Cream smoothie mix
2 cups spinach and/or kale
1 cup assorted berries (fresh or frozen blackberries and frozen raspberries)
1 banana
1 fresh squeezed orange (or frozen orange juice)
1 Tbsp. flaxseed meal
1.5 cups greek yogurt

Directions:
Throw it all in a blender and pulse until your smoothie is the desired consistency. In order for this to be a smoothie and not just juice, make sure at least one of the fruit elements in your smoothie is frozen (i.e. a frozen banana, or I use frozen berries). You can also throw in a few crushed ice cubes as well. Add larger amounts of fruits or veggies to your smoothie depending on the size you’d like your smoothie to be. I actually split this recipe with my daughter and while the smoothie looks a little small when it’s split, it’s super filling and keeps me going ’til lunch!

Hope you enjoy your tasty and nutritious smoothie!

Chai Tea Latte Contains Spices with Many Health Benefits

I have been feeling a bit under the weather during the last few weeks, probably because it is freezing here in Boston and I miss the Sun!

Spices are a great remedy to get my energy levels up, and awaken my senses after a dull winter. Time for a deliciously spicy warm drink, it’s time for a Caffe D’Vita Chai Tea Latte!

Caffe D’Vita’s Chai Tea Latte contains spices that provide a variety of health benefits:

Ginger: I drink a lot of Chai Tea Latte during the cold days when I start to feel fluey. It really boosts the immune system and helps the body to warm up.

Cinnamon: is known to help digestion and boost the immune system and it is a great way to appease my sweet tooth and avoid having too much sugar.

Nutmeg: A rich, hearty spice that has many healing properties, in particular helping with anxiety and insomnia, and with stomach issues: indigestion, vomiting.

Cardamom: is used as an antiseptic, antispasmodic, for digestive disturbances and as a diuretic. Cardamom is a good source of minerals like potassium, calcium, and magnesium.

Cloves: Cloves are a great anti-inflammatory: Some use it for toothache, and it helps to eliminate bacteria and fungi. It also provides relief for respiratory issues and asthma.

In The Mood for Bright and Fresh Spring Flavors

I’m in the mood for spring and flavors that are bright and fresh. And, since oranges are in season right now and so much sweeter, we haven’t been able to stay away from them. It’s a great fruit to bridge the gap before all the wonderful spring fruits and veggies come into season. Which, officially is less then a month away. I could not be more excited about this fact!

So we’ve created this gem of a smoothie for a couple of weeks now. I’ve got it all down by memory and can be seen throwing things into the blender on autopilot, tossing in some Caffe D’Vita Fruit Cream Smoothie Orange mix and you’re good to go. It is our new favorite.

For this smoothie we use the real deal – one whole (peeled) orange sliced up and thrown in the blender with a scoop of Caffe D’Vita Fruit Cream Smoothie Orange mix. The mix makes the smoothie sweet and creamy. Orange is definitely the dominant flavor but if you like you can also toss in some strawberries and banana to help round it out and sweeten it up.

The result is a refreshing smoothie that tastes like an orange in Popsicle form. Yum!

How I Became a Chai Tea Latte Connoisseur

I was never much of a coffee aficionado. When I first started going to coffee houses I would stand frozen and stare at the menu board pretending to be cool. I never knew what I wanted or how to order. Embarrassed for me, friends and family took pity on me and would intervene or share their drinks.

Trying to be independent, I attempted to imitate my peers by mumbling something about a latte and timidly pointing at which cup size I wanted. Through trial and error, Chai Tea Lattes became my drink of choice. The Chai Tea Latte has a bolder taste than a latte and that complements the spice of the tea. Simple enough to order and I love it so much.

Then, drum roll, I discovered Caffe D’Vita and their Chai Tea Latte mix. Caffe D’Vita’s Chai Tea Latte mix is wonderfully fragrant and soothing and so easy to make at home.

In its most basic form, Chai is black tea that is brewed strong with a combination of spices and is diluted with milk and sugar. The spices consist of cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, anise seed and ginger. Chai tea is traditionally consumed hot and sweet. The sweetness is needed to bring out the full flavors of the spices. And Caffe D’Vita has taken all the guess work out of the preparation. But, do remember they are terrific in a icy or smoothie form.

When Does a Smoothie Work Best?

Making a smoothie every morning as part of a daily routine is perhaps the best expenditure of your time and money you can make. It can ensure that you are properly hydrated at the beginning of the day and it can provide you with the full spectrum of nature’s bioavailable vitamins, nutrients, and antioxidants your body needs. Smoothies can also give you plenty of natural fiber to promote excellent digestion and can provide you with the scientifically proven best “brain fuel” in the form of fructose. Smoothies help empower your immune system in helping protect you from illness.

Make drinking a smoothie a part of your daily routine! But when, during the day, does a smoothie work best?

Morning
Instead of having your typical breakfast, try out a smoothie. It is the perfect way to break the fast after coming off of eight hours of sleep. Making a large smoothie in the morning can keep you satisfied for a longer period of time and will also keep your energy level up.

Empty Stomach
To really make sure all the nutrients are absorbed and utilized, consume on an empty stomach. Processed foods require longer digestive times and require more energy to process. Smoothies have very short digestive times, can be easily digested and assimilated.

After a workout
This is the period of time after exerting yourself when the body is ready to convert glycogen into blood sugar, due to the depleted stores resulting from the workout. It is best to have a simple smoothie right after your work out.

When you want to feel light instead of heavy
Instead of going for that heavy meal, try out a smoothie. You will soon realize that there is no need to take a post meal nap and rest before your next task of the day.

Instead of lunch or dinner
Figuring out what to make for lunch or dinner can be a headache. A large smoothie can fix that. They are satisfying and filling enough to be used as a partial meal replacement.

When you are on the go
Smoothies are probably one of the most convenient beverages to take on the road! Using a mason jar as your ‘to go cup’ is perfect because the quantity can be increased and it is good for the environment.

At work
Smoothies are perfect because they are easy to transport and are extremely filling. Put it in a large mason jar and lead by example and soon all your co-workers will follow.

Smoothies can be Just About Anything You want Them to be

I have been making smoothies for years. My favorite smoothies start with Caffe D’Vita Vanilla Base smoothie mix. I discovered that bags of frozen mixed fruit and maybe some Greek yogurt lend a little variety and excitement to the mix..

If you’ve never had a smoothie before, now might be a good time to start. Smoothies can be just about anything you want them to be, from a slushy fruit beverage to a creamy rich and thick vitamin-packed treat.

Though the smoothie boom is often associated with the 1970s and 1980s, it’s a term that actually goes back to at least the 1940s, when cookbooks for the blender offered recipes for pineapple and banana smoothies. Some smoothies are healthier than others, but even the most basic smoothie is obviously better for you than canned drinks, not to mention more filling and satisfying, so you tend to consume less.

Caffe D’Vita’s Smoothie mixes are made with a combination of a great creamer, premium ingredients, and unique fruit flavors that produces an outstanding smoothie. Caffe D’Vita’s Fruit Cream Smoothies are low in fat, have no hydrogenated oils, no trans fat, and are gluten free. The Caffe D’Vita brand is associated with a “healthy, active lifestyle” but I just love smoothies for the taste.

Go ahead make a smoothie with Caffe D’Vita’s Smoothie mix or add your favorite fruits and even some protein powder to one of Caffe D’Vita’s base smoothie mixes. You’ll soon discover just how versatile Caffe D’Vita’s Fruit Cream Smoothie mix can be.

Re-Discovered Chai Tea Latte

Last week I met my husband for lunch and I didn’t know what to order, but I did know pretty quickly what I wanted something great to drink. I’m diet soda free (with the exception of the calorie-free sparkling flavored water I get every once in a while). I’ve been trying to find drink that I like that isn’t soda, and one that I’ve re-discovered is Chai Tea Lattes. I’ve fallen in love with Caffe D’Vita Chai Tea Latte mix and have one maybe once or twice a week.

In its most basic form, Chai is black tea that is brewed strong with a combination of spices and is diluted with milk and sugar. The spices most often consist of cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, anise seed and ginger. Chai tea is traditionally consumed hot and sweet. The sweetness is needed to bring out the full flavors of the spices. And Caffe D’Vita has taken all the guess work out of the preparation. But, do remember they are terrific in a icy or smoothie form.

Two Minute Smoothie

Smoothies are one of our favorite treats to whip up. We like it when we can put a smoothie together in two minutes max. That way, we can get a healthy-snack fix without an ounce of stress.

This summer, we are hoping to beat the heat while staying nourished with quick, satisfying recipes just like this. Sound good to you, too?

This delicious smoothie is like the best version of your favorite grapefruit juice made better. The best part is that is takes just a minute or two to make!

This Pretty in Pink Grapefruit Smoothie will leave you feeling fabulous. Grab this frosty grapefruit-infused sip on a sunny afternoon and you’ll find yourself in a zing-y pink paradise. Give this recipe a try.

This smoothie has it all. It has strawberries, grapefruit juice, fiber, antioxidants and fun. It contains loads of vitamin C and potassium, plenty of fresh fruit nutrients. If you love zesty-sweet flavors, you’ll love this sip.

We use a blend of ruby red (pink) and white flesh grapefruit juice for this smoothie. We find white grapefruits are a tad less zesty and refreshingly sweet. You can use a blend or just one variety, either way will be yummy.

And who wouldn’t love to go soaking in the sunshine while sipping on a sweet pink drink?

Kid Tip! For milder taste buds, sub half the grapefruit juice with fresh orange juice.

Pretty in Pink Grapefruit Smoothie
makes 2 servings

1  cup freshly squeezed pink grapefruit juice
1/2 cup white grapefruit juice (or more pink)
1 cup frozen strawberries
1/2 cup ice
2 bananas (fresh or frozen)
1 Tablespoon Caffe D’Vita Vanilla base mix

Blend. Pour. Garnish with fresh fruit.

Sip. Smile!

Why Are Smoothies So Popular?

Why are smoothies so popular? Smoothies, made from Caffe D’Vita Vanilla Base Smoothie mix and a blend of fruits, vegetables, and sometimes nuts or dairy, are the latest craze to promise the fountain of youth in a glass.

Inspired by Brazilian pureed fruit drinks, they first appeared in the U.S. in the 1930s, coinciding with the invention of blenders. However, smoothies have long been a part of other cuisines, such as Indian and Middle Eastern. In Morocco, cafés serve “panachés,” concoctions that can include milk blended with almonds and bananas.

By the 1960s, smoothies were an established part of macrobiotic vegetarian cuisine. In the 1970s, smoothies made their way to the mall, and the rest is a multi-billion dollar history. At home, anyone with a blender and some Caffe D’Vita Vanilla Base Smoothie mix can make healthy, inexpensive smoothies.

Superfoods” are foods that are rich in phytonutrients. Some are antioxidants, while others contain healthy fats, phytochemicals, or fiber. Blueberries, dark green, leafy vegetables like spinach or kale, and kiwis are among some of the more readily available examples.
In addition to using common ingredients like fruits and vegetables you can also add almond butter and flaxseed. But you don’t need exotic superfoods to make a delicious smoothie.

Blended Iced Mocha Coffee Drink – a Big Summer Lure

Some things go hand-in-hand with summer: Sunburns, bikinis, outdoor fun and blended coffee drinks. This summer is no exception.

Here’s a fuss free way to enjoy a mocha blended iced at home. It can’t get any simpler than this. How simple? I just put everything in a blender and blend for a few seconds. I’m a lazy and shortcut cook. The taste is so good! And at least I get to enjoy mocha blended ice drink at a fraction of the coffee house price, in the comfort of my home and with minimal effort :)

Ingredients

(makes one glass)
1 Tbl of Caffe D’Vita Mocha Cappuccino mix -
6-8 ice cubesWhipped cream (optional)

Tools needed
a blender that can blend ice cubes

Directions
Just place everything in a blender and blend until the ice is nicely crushed to fine consistency. If you like, add whipped cream on top and dust cocoa powder over the whipped cream using a fine sieve.

Make a Smoothie Every Morning

Making a smoothie every morning as part of a daily routine is perhaps the best expenditure of your time and money you can make. We recommend you get a good smoothie blender, and use it every day. Smoothies give you more fiber and nutrients than juice does.

Make a routine out of it. Set apart 10-20 minutes every morning. When you do it like a pro and use fruits and vegetables you’ll get the majority of your daily nutrition all before lunch. Further, the high water and nutrient content will keep you hydrated and provide you with a feeling of well being all day.

The best way to get nutrition is from food, and by consuming a healthful smoothie every day you are getting most of your nutrition in one proven delicious drink. And with Caffe D’Vita Vanilla Base Smoothie mix you can make healthy, inexpensive smoothies.

Consuming Raw Fruits and Vegetables in a smoothie every day will do several things for you:

Save you money and time

Ensure you are properly hydrated at the beginning of the day

Provide you with the full spectrum of nature’s bioavailable vitamins, nutrients, and antioxidants

Give you plenty of natural fiber to ensure excellent digestion

Provide you with the scientifically proven best “brain fuel” in the form of fructose

Help empower your immune system to protect you from illness

Smoothies – Fuel for an Active Life

Smoothies are easy to make and can be used in a variety of situations to help meet your energy needs. They also offer a great way to increase your fruit and vegetable servings.

In the summer months there is a large variety of fresh fruit available to experiment with so you can develop many different flavors. Smoothies are generally made with juice and veggies, and fruit blended together. With the addition of Caffe D’Vita Vanilla Smoothie Mix a you can transform your smoothie into a great pre or post exercise drink.

If you work out in the morning or are running late for work, a smoothie can be a quick grab and go breakfast to get you going. Even if you don’t feel like eating a smoothie is easy to drink and will provide you with energy for your workout or to start your day. Include some ground flax seeds, bran cereal or ground chia seeds to your smoothie to give a boost of fiber. Combine 1 Tablespoon of Caffe D’Vita Vanilla Smoothie mix, one cup of frozen berries and one tablespoon of ground flax seed for an early morning pick me up.

If you train later in the day a smoothie can be a great snack before you exercise.

A smoothie also digests more quickly than solid foods so you are not uncomfortable while you are active. Try a high carbohydrate smoothie that includes fruit and fruit juice to help power your workout. Blend 1 Tablespoon and half a cup of orange juice with half a cup of low fat milk and half a banana or half a cup of strawberries for an energizing smoothie.

After intense exercise a smoothie can be a simple recovery snack. It provides fluid for hydration, protein to help repair and build muscle and carbohydrates to refuel your muscles. A recovery smoothie with carbohydrates and protein should be consumed within 30 minutes of activity. To make your smoothie higher in protein add low fat Greek yogurt or two tablespoons of natural peanut butter, or half a cup of low fat cottage cheese. A pinch of salt can also be added to help replace the sodium you lost if you tend to sweat a lot.

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.

Chai Tea Latte – A Healthy Alternative to Coffee

Rain hits the roof, the cooler  sensations of late summer are all around us, so find your favorite cozy corner, light a fire and snuggle up with a hot cup of Caffe D’Vita Chai Tea Latte. Choose from Spiced Tea Latte, Vanilla Tea Latte or Chocolate Tea Latte.

Chai Tea is warming, hydrating and beneficial for your body and soul.
There is also a growing body of evidence showing that the tea in chai has numerous possible health benefits. Tea polyphenols have been linked in research to increased attention and focus (Theanine), cardiovascular health, protection against Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s and even may have the potential to alter cancer genetics. Additionally, the spices in Chai Tea have various health benefits, and have been used for thousands of years.

Chai is mentally clarifying and energizing yet calming at the same time. So chai gives you a subtle “pick me up” without nervousness, jitters. And unlike standard tea, chai tea has substantially more body and flavor so it is an ideal coffee substitute. Also, unlike standard teas, chai tea tends to be stronger and bolder, enhanced by the spices. So it is a natural alternative to coffee substitute.

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.

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.

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.

Research continues to show us that antioxidants help prevent cancer, heart disease, age-related macular degeneration and aging in general because they fight free radicals in the body. The trendy so-called super foods are the ones bursting with antioxidants — acai, goji berries, blueberries and pomegranate have become the super-food darlings. But antioxidants come in surprising forms too, like in vehicles once considered more vice than health food, such as coffee,  red wine, and yes, chocolate. Which is one of the areas where chocolate, especially in the form of hot cocoa, shines. Here’s how.

1. According to a study conducted at Cornell University, the antioxidant concentration in hot cocoa is  almost twice as strong as red wine. Cocoa’s concentration was two to three times stronger than that of green tea and four to five times stronger than that of black tea.

2. Professor Chang Yong Lee, the leader of the Cornell study, added that the “hot” in “hot chocolate” is important as well. More antioxidants are released when it’s heated up.

3. A cup of hot cocoa contains 611 milligrams of the phenolic compound gallic acid equivalents (GAE) and 564 milligrams of the flavonoid epicatechin equivalents (ECE). The antioxidant gallic acid is used to treat internal hemorrhages, albuminuria (the presence of albumin in the urine, which can indicate kidney disease) and diabetes.

4. Although a regular bar of chocolate has strong antioxidant activity, the health benefits may be outweighed because of the saturated fats present — cocoa generally has much less fat per serving compared to the 8 grams of fat in a standard chocolate bar.

5. The flavonoids help your body process nitric oxide, which is why hot cocoa can improve blood flow, help lower your blood pressure and improve heart health.

6. The flavonoids in hot chocolate also help prevent platelets in your blood from mingling together and forming clots.

7. According to the American Association for the Advancement of Science, drinking hot chocolate can help you think better too. The flavonoids increase the blood flow and oxygen to the brain. Since dementia is caused by a reduced flow of blood to the brain, researchers think it could be treated with cocoa.

Classic flavors and scents like the almond flavor of amaretto and the crispy, fresh aroma of peppermint lie at the core of this warm holiday tradition.

This season, entice your customers with the sweet, savory aroma of our Pumpkin Spice and Irish Cream Cappuccinos. Offer them a warm Amaretto or Peppermint Mocha Cappuccino with a candy cane swizzle. Or, invite your customers in from the cold for a steaming cup of our premium classic Hot Cocoa.

Baby It’s Cold Outside

There’s nothing better on a cold afternoon (or at any time of any day, for that matter) than a steaming mug of hot cocoa. Now that winter is ramping up, all I want to do is get super cozy and indulge in my favorite comfort beverage, hot cocoa. It’s cold outside. I’m going to stay inside, wrapped in a blanket, drinking this wintertime favorite.

What’s not to like? It’s just about perfect: a warm drink from the bitter cold that brings you close to the table: your cold little hands burning up as they clasp around the mug. Not to mention it’s chocolate: even the ancients used to refer to it as the “gift from the gods”. My love affair with a perfectly brewed cup of hot cocoa continues to this very day.

Fun Hot Cocoa Ideas For The Holidays

When it’s cold outside and your craving for that hot drink that will warm you up, there’s nothing like a good mug of yummy Caffe D’Vita hot cocoa, but sometimes plain hot cocoa gets boring, and thus you need a couple of ways to spruce it up. Here are a few holiday hot cocoa enhancement ideas for you.

Stir in a teaspoon of good maple syrup, it tastes like chocolate chip pancakes with maple syrup!

Before pouring your cocoa, scoop in a ball of vanilla ice cream into your mug and then pour that hot gooey chocolate on top and enjoy it before the ice cream melts!

And because it’s Christmas, you can use those yummy peppermint canes to stir your drink and get that minty zing!

If you’re not so adventurous, just throw in some mini-marshmallows and enjoy them as they melt into the chocolate.

Cheers to a New Year

This year, celebrate New Year’s with a delicious drink recipe using Caffe D’Vita’s Peppermint Cappuccino and Amaretto Cappuccino. This recipe can be served either hot or cold and are designed for individual servings.

Peppermint Cappuccino:

First, pour 1/3 cup (about 3 ounces) of Caffe D’Vita’s Peppermint Cappuccino premium mix into a blender (for the hot version, see below). Add 3 ounces of water and 3 ounces of Peppermint Schnapps (or any peppermint liqueur) and a 16 oz cup-full of ice. Blend everything together and serve it with whipped cream and a fresh mint.

For the hot version, pour 1/3 cup (3 ounces) of Caffe D’Vita’s Peppermint Cappuccino premium mix into a small saucepan. Add the 3 ounces of water, heat everything together, remembering to stir (be careful not to boil it!!) Once everything is heated, add 3 ounces of Peppermint Schnapps (or any peppermint liqueur) before serving it in a warm mug with a peppermint stick.

For an Amaretto version: Same recipe only substitute Amaretto instead of Peppermint Schnaps.

For more servings, simply multiply the ingredients.

Health Benefits of Juicing VS. Smoothies

Juicing and smoothies are all the rage right now. While both can boost your fruit and vegetable intake (something most Americans need to do) and are great for getting a variety of produce into your diet, one is the better choice.

That’s the smoothie. Why? Juicing leaves behind a pulp, which contains fiber, and nutrients that you end up tossing away, and thus you lose most of the benefits of whole fruits and vegetables. Blending produce into a smoothie, however, preserves fiber, and a smoothie can deliver an extra boost of vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals because it often includes fruit skins and pith.
Everyone loves a good smoothie, and they’re so easy to make, too. A banana, some fruit, something creamy, blend and you’re good to go, right?

Bottom line: DIY smoothies reign supreme, you know what you’re getting or, for that matter, not getting. But they are no substitute for whole fruits and vegetables in your diet because it’s easier to take in more calories when you drink instead of eat them. Thus, the Produce for Better Health Foundation recommends no more than 8 to 12 ounces of blended or juiced produce daily.

Free Hot Cocoa to Soften Blow of Students Returning to University

As semester two begins, the folks at The Union decided the thought of making a 9:00 lecture might be a little too tough for some – so they’re bribing University of Dundee students to get out of their beds with the promise of a free hot cocoa.

They should pick Caffe D’Vita’s Hot Cocoa. Caffe D’Vita uses plenty of Dutch processed European chocolate in its hot cocoa, rich in flavor while soothing and creamy, and so easy to make, just hot add water.

Drinkable cocoa has been used for years to treat ailments, maladies and bad moods in people of all ages. When chocolate made its way to France in the 17th century, it was used “to fight against fits of anger and depression”, which was insightful, given that modern research has discovered that chocolate reduces levels of stress hormones in the bodies of people feeling agitated.

In addition the research continues to show us that antioxidants help prevent cancer, heart disease, age-related macular degeneration and aging in general because they fight free radicals in the body. Antioxidants come in surprising forms too, like in vehicles once considered more vice than health food, such as coffee, red wine, and yes, chocolate. Which is one of the areas where chocolate, especially in the form of hot cocoa, shines.
