NadaMoo Coffee Creamer Cubes

By | Uncategorized

think outside the bowl

Waking up to the horror that is running out of your usual coffee fixins’ is a tragic occurrence that, quite frankly, can ruin the rest of your day.

While that might be a bit on the dramatic side, coffee lovers can understand the aggravation and disappointment of a lacking morning brew.  As we continue our #ThinkOutsideTheBowl challenge, we’ve created a simple addition to your morning coffee with our NadaMoo coffee creamer cubes.

To make your own coffee creamer cubes, throw a cup of your favorite NadaMoo flavor and a cup of unsweetened coconut milk in the blender. Pour the blend into ice cube trays (silicone works best) and freeze overnight. The next morning pop a cube or two into you coffee and you’re good to go.

The frozen cubes will instantly cool down your scorching brew and save you from those burnt tongues that last all day long. We recommend using Java Crunch, Vanilla Cha-Cha-Chai, Vanilla…Ahhh, Creamy Coconut or Gotta Do Chocolate NadaMoo, depending on your preferred coffee flavor. These cubes not only save you invaluable time in the morning, but also cut out dairy and the questionable ingredients found in artificial sweeteners and traditional coffee creamer.

So are you a Mocha Swirl & Java Crunch kind of girl? Maybe a Breakfast Blend & Vanilla Cha-Cha-Chai kind of guy? Get creative and share your creations using #ThinkOutsideTheBowl. Trust us, your mornings will never be the same.

Chocolate Raspberry Recipe Featuring Gotta Do Chocolate

Chocolate Raspberry Recipe

 

As mentioned last week, for the month of April the NadaMoo team is taking a break from bowls as we #ThinkOutsideTheBowl (and substantially reduce office dish duty).

 

Gotta Do Chocolate Stuffed Raspberries

 For many, chocolate is not only a favorite food, but a way of life. These chocoholics find any excuse to add their rich indulgence to nearly any type of dish. Some might argue that stuffing a raspberry with chocolate ice cream defeats the purpose of snacking on the antioxidant-packed super food. However, taking advantage of the health benefits of NadaMoo, we have created a chocolate raspberry recipe that is the best of both worlds.

Made with coconut milk, NadaMoo contains plant-based saturated fats, which differ biochemically from the animal-based fats found in traditional dairy ice creams. According to cookbook author Cathe Olson, coconut milk is made up of medium-chain fatty acids, which are converted to energy rather than stored as body fat. Medium-chain fatty acids have also been proven to speed up metabolism, which burns calories and promotes weight loss. Coconut milk is also rich in lauric acid. Also found in breast milk, lauric acid is known to promote a healthy immune system and facilitate brain function. These research claims are also supported by studies of island populations around the world that use the coconut in everything from cooking to disease prevention.

For this week’s quick chocolate raspberry recipe, pack raspberry pits with thawed Gotta Do Chocolate and then freeze. That’s it. It’s hard to decide what which reward is better. The numerous benefits of raspberries + those of coconut milk or the sweet, fruity flavor + the rich and creamy chocolate. A handful of these heavenly bites make the perfect snack between meals or even a scrumptious dessert. You could even place a few atop of a cake for a lovely design or on top of more scoops of NadaMoo (as Audrey Hepburn once said “NadaMoo is always a good idea”…or something like that). Try it out and don’t be afraid to get creative with your flavor combos! Make sure to share your creations using #ThinkOutsideTheBowl

Thinking Outside the Bowl with NadaMoo!

Here at NadaMoo, we always love to see innovative and fun uses of our dairy-free ice cream, from smoothies to cakes to the more creative. We’ve decided to dedicate a whole month to “thinking outside the bowl.” This is the idea of enjoying the deliciousness of NadaMoo outside of your go-to ceramic bowl, and this creative thinking isn’t limited only to food. Look out for crafty pint endeavors and other fun surprises, in addition to recipes, embodying our motto of thinking outside the bowl.

Think Inside the Apple: Apple Bowls

Thinking Outside the Bowl with Ice Cream Stuffed Apples

Because it’s our very first thinking outside the bowl recipe, we’re starting off with baby steps. We’re throwing out the regular ol’ bowl and replacing it with a healthy alternative. Apple bowls are quick and easy to make, and would make the perfect picnic treat on a warm sunny day. Plus, edible bowls equal no dishes. Enough said.

Start by slicing off the top of a medium-sized red apple, including the stem. Using a spoon or scooper, carve out the middle of the apple and make sure to remove all the seeds. Pro tip: a melon baller works the best for removing the middle of the apple. Finally add scoops of Mmm…Maple Pecan NadaMoo to your apple bowl and top with crushed pecans and maple syrup. Easy and delicious right?

This recipe can also be altered to include to your favorite flavor of NadaMoo Coconut Milk Ice Cream and toppings. If you’re feeling extra creative, experiment with other fruits and flavors:

  • Green apples + Sweet Cherry Lime
  • Pears + Vanilla…Ahhh
  • A pineapple (watch the spikes) + Creamy Coconut
  • A small watermelon (for the extra hungry) + Vanilla…Ahhh

What combo just popped into your head? Mmm… sounds delicious. Make sure to share your creations using #thinkoutsidethebowl and tag @NadaMoo. Thanks for stoppin’ by and check back throughout April for more ways of thinking outside the bowl.
