Simply simmer them in vegetable broth along with some black beans and seasonings, then puree with Greek yogurt for a smooth and savory soup.

In this recipe, it’s simmered in coconut water, then topped with coconut flakes, cranberry and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Good morning to you!
Stuck in a smoothie slump? Try this recipe for a sweet drink that really packs in the greens.

Add fresh strawberries, cinnamon and stevia to sweeten things up!
