Earth month is well underway and we think that this easy DIY just might make your day!

Any cultured host or hostess knows that a centerpiece can make or break a well thought out room.

 

This timeless piece is classic, simple, & chic. It also serves to support a larger cause. Each piece has been handcrafted using re-purposed wood & glass.  Recycling-revolution.com predicts that every month, we throw out enough glass bottles and jars to fill up a giant skyscraper!  By turning your regular household materials into something beautiful you may reduce your carbon footprint and overall negative impact on the planet.

 

DIY3 copy

 

So let’s get crafty & celebrate sustainability!

DIYMaterials

Time: takes about an hour.

Materials:

  • 3 pieces of recycled wood (we used an old pallet 40x4in)
  • 12 Nails
  • Hammer
  • Nail Gun (optional)
  • Sandpaper (optional)
  • Measuring Tape
  • Power Saw
  • Drill with a hole saw attachment

 

Step 1: Take two pieces of wood (40x4in) and cut into (16x4in pieces) these will be used for the top and bottom of our box.

 

Step 2: Take the third piece and cut it into two (6 5/8th in pieces) these will be used for the sides of the box.

 

Now that the wood has been cut, it is time to drill. This is where you can get creative! Use a ruler to measure out the holes for the top of the box.

DIY4 copy

Step 3: Secure one of your (16x4in) wood cuts to a table using a clamp. Once everything has been secured, you are ready to drill! Adjust the clamp after you complete each hole.

DIY2 copy

Step 4: Sand away!

You may skip this step if you desire a rustic looking end product.

 

Step 5: Line up all of your box edges. You will need your hammer and nails. Align the sides and hammer three nails into each end. Continue this process until all four ends have been secured.

 

Step 6: Chose your favorite KeVita bottle, the amber Tonics bottles are a great compliment to a lighter wood surface. Gently remove the labels. Fill each bottle with water or potting soil. Add your favorite flower or plant!

 

How do you re-purpose your KeVita bottles? Show us on Instagram, Pinterest, or Twitter or post your picture directly to our Facebook wall!

Recipe by Lacy J. Davis.

Good Morning!

This cheese is 100% worth the time and the effort of a quick ferment. It is creamy, tangy due to the 24 hour fermentation process, rich, and just a little salty. I’m loving it interspersed in fresh green salads, on gluten-free crackers & carrot sticks, and- real talk- by the spoonful. I hope you enjoy!

Prep time: 48 hours Cook time: 5 mins Total time: 48 hours 5 mins

1 Fermented Cashew Cheese

Ingredients:
1 cups cashews, soaked overnight so they get nice and soft
1 cup Coconut flavor KeVita probiotic beverage.
1 capsule probiotic powder (if you have a high speed blender, you can throw it in whole, if not break the capsule and pour the powder in)
1 tablespoon fresh miso paste
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons herbs de provence
Generous amounts of fresh ground black pepper

2 Fermented Cashew Cheese

Instructions:
Soak your cashews, covered overnight. Drain in the morning.
Place soaked cashews, 1 cup liquid, probiotic powder, and miso into a high speed blender until it becomes smooth. If the mixture is too thick add more KeVita, going slowly. You want the mix to be smooth but not at all watery.

3 Fermented Cashew Cheese
Transfer the mix into a nut milk bag, fold over and place into a strainer sitting over a bowl. Place a plate on top of the bag and weight it down. (I used a can of lentil soup). Cover everything to keep it protected from debris and any unwanted bacteria and place it in a warm area to culture (room temperature is good). Leave for a minimum of 24 hours – no more than 48. After about 24 hours you should be able to start smelling the probiotic goodness proliferating.
When you’re done fermenting, place the whole mix into a bowl & add in the salt, yeast, herbs, and apple cider vinegar. top generously with pepper and mix thoroughly.
Enjoy!

Recipe  by Lacy J. Davis

This Mole is something different and also something truly special.

Mole Roasted Chickpeas - Super Strength Health 5 copy

There are a few steps (the long slow simmer of the sauce, the shelling of the chickpeas) that add duration to the cook time, but the result is incredible. The sauce manages to be both rich and low fat, creamy, warming, and delightful. It is 100% worth the extra bit of time and extra effort!

As usual, our secret ingredient today is KeVita. The Cinnamon Tonic is perfect here, providing sweet notes just when you want them. Eat your chickpeas warm with a grilled asparagus side and mashed sweet potatoes, or cold atop a huge lunch salad and enjoy!

Mole Roasted Chickpeas - Super Strength Health 1 copy
Ingredients:

1 teaspoon coconut oil
5 cloves garlic (minced)
1 medium red onion
1 15 oz. can fire roasted tomatoes
1 cup low sodium veggie broth
1.5 cups Cinnamon flavor KeVita Tonic
2 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 cup raw cacao powder
2 ounces unsweetened baker’s chocolate
3 cups chickpeas

Mole Roasted Chickpeas - Super Strength Health 3 copy
Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Place the coconut oil in a medium stock pot over medium heat. Add the garlic and onion and cook for 8-10 minutes, stirring frequently until softened. Feel free to add a splash of water if it appears to be drying out.

Mole Roasted Chickpeas - Super Strength Health copy

Add the tomatoes, veggie broth, KeVita, peppers, and spices (oregano-cacao powder). Reduce heat to low and simmer on medium-low heat for 30 minutes. Stir occasionally.

While sauce is cooking, skin your chickpeas. This is not 100% required, but really helps the beans soak up the Mole.

Add the Baker’s chocolate and cook over low heat for another ten minutes until the chocolate is melted.

After the sauce is cooked, use a stick blender (or regular blender in batches) to puree until smooth.

Pour chickpeas on to a baking sheet and pour the mole over the top, giving everything a quick toss. Bake in oven for one hour, or until liquid has dried up, leaving your chickpeas with crispy bits.

Recipe by Lacy J. Davis

Chia seeds and KeVita are a perfect partnership.

Coconut copy

KeVita supplies abundant amounts of healthy probiotics. Chia seeds are nutrient dense and high in Omega-3 fatty acids, plus they are awesome for digestion. I started day dreaming about the possibility of pairing the two, and suddenly in the middle of the night it hit me- I had to make myself some yogurt.

You see, I am dissatisfied with many of the yogurts on the market. I don’t eat dairy, which keeps me away from the unsweetened and less processed stuff, and all the vegan yogurts on the market have strange fillers I can’t pronounce, more sugar than I want to spend on a light snack, and much to be desired when it comes to the protein and fiber department. I have long known that I want to pack as many probiotics into my diet as possible, and KeVita + chia is the perfect way to get my yogurt fix without the dairy or sugar.

I can’t wait for you to try it! The results are truly a delight.

Vanilla Coconut Chia Pudding 5 copy

Ingredients
1/2 cup coconut KeVita
1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1/4 cup chia seeds
1/2 teaspoon pure organic vanilla extract
powder from inside one probiotic capsule
3 drops vanilla liquid stevia
1/2 frozen banana (optional)
1/2 cup raw cashews (optional)
mixed berries and chopped nuts for garnish

ChiaYogurt

Procedure
1. Combine KeVita and almond milk in a small bowl. Add chia seeds, whisk thoroughly with a fork. Add vanilla, liquid stevia and the powder from inside one probiotic capsule to the mix and whisk again. Let sit 1-2 hours in the fridge.
2. Once the chia seeds have absorbed the liquid, dump into a high speed blender (Vitamix and BlendTec are my recommendation). Gradually increase blender speed until you are blending on high. Add an optional 1/2 a frozen banana or 1/2 cup raw cashews if you prefer a thicker yogurt.
3. Once seeds are completely pulverized and the mix is creamy stop the blender. Pour into individual dishes and top with chopped nuts and fresh fruit.
4. Enjoy!

Recipe by Lacy J. Davis

Miso Lemon Cayenne Roasted Potatoes 4 copy

I have had the lovely opportunity to work at a farmer’s market lately, and with each shift I get a fairly small sum of money, and a ton of free produce. I LOVE this job (I think you can understand why) and I have been positively geeking out about all the cool veggies that are in season right now in the bay area. In between bouts of beet obsession, celeriac worship, and kabocha romance, I have occasionally found myself with a few bucks of trade credit left over at the end of the market. These are the moments when I return to the cheapest root I can find to use it up: the potato.

Miso Lemon Cayenne Roasted Potatoes 2 copy
Just the site of these bad boys had me craving something crispy and starchy. Because I am not super fond of oil (it is not a whole food, it doesn’t add much in the way of nutrition when cooked.) I challenged myself to make something low oil and epic. I knew I needed a glaze, for both taste and crisping purposes, and I knew I wanted the flavor to be tangy, spicy, and unique. What came was a blend of miso, sriracha, dijon mustard, fresh ground pepper, sea salt, and my secret weapon of flavor, KeVita. The fermentation of the KeVita added a perfect depth of flavor to the spuds, and the miso and srirarcha were totally married by the dijon. BOOM. This recipe is delicious. Flavorful low-oil crispy potatoes have been born.

Miso Lemon Cayenne Roasted Potatoes 6 copy
Ingredients:
2 pounds potatoes. I would suggest yukon gold or red, but sweet or purple potatoes might be good too.
¼ cup Lemon Cayenne KeVita
3 tablespoons miso
1 teaspoon dijon mustard
2 teaspoons Sriracha hot sauce
¼ teaspoon sea salt, or to taste
generous grating of black pepper

Miso Lemon Cayenne Roasted Potatoes1  copy

Instructions:
Wash the potatoes well and cut them in to bite sized pieces. Try to keep your pieces about the same size so they cook at the same speed. Bring a pot of water to boil, add the potatoes, and cook until they are tender when pierced with a fork. The time will depend on the size of the potatoes. Mine took 25 minutes.
Drain your potatoes and rinse them with cold water to cool them down enough to handle.
Whisk together the remaining ingredients in a small bowl. Pour over the potatoes and mix well. Check flavor and add more miso, sriracha, mustard, pepper or salt to taste.
Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat and spray with spray oil.
Dump the whole mess of potatoes and sauce in the pot and cook on high. You want your potatoes to be an even layer in the pan, and to cook until the sides are brown and crispy. I let mine crisp for ten minutes, and then flipped them and cooked the other side for ten more.

I am all about using aromatics to give a cool drink warming properties. This mocktail is an absolutely perfect example of that fact.

Cinnamon, ginger, clove and apple are standard winter flavors, and (like everything) I believe they are made better with the addition of probiotics and kale.

Warming Apple Citrus Mocktail 1 high res copy

I enjoyed this beverage on a super cool day, just after a chilly bike ride, and despite the cold, I was warmed right up.  I recommend drinking it any time you need just a touch of winter comfort.

Get you’re guilt-free buzz on with our stevia sweetened KeVita Sangria!

Sangria2

 

Ah, sangria. How we love you so! Typically sought after during summer, this twist on tradition is the perfect winter escape in a glass.

 

Sangria

We decided to throw a little bit of KeVita’s signature fizz into the mix alongside some of our favorite fresh fruit. By swapping KeVita for juice, you can celebrate life with a cocktail while sticking to your new year’s resolution.
