I was so thrilled to have the company offer to send me some free merchandise! While I am not the best cook I know by any means, it is certainly something that I enjoy. I am always looking to try out new recipes.
What I received in the mail:
Simply Organic chili powder
crushed ginger root powder
vanilla non-alcoholic flavouring
I have utilized Simply Organic’s spices in my recipes before. I have to admit, I’m pretty picky when it comes to my seasonings. I feel the best resource for them are to get them from their most natural state. However, that’s not always a viable option. These products are the next best thing. None of the spices go through any irridation!
The cinnamon in particular was sweeter than what you would normally get from your typical grocery store (which I love!) Everything was so, so fresh and I liked the glass bottles that they came in to ensure freshness for a long time.
Also, one of my favourite things about Simply Organic is the fact that 1% of all sales go to support organic farming 🙂
If you go to their website here, you can purchase any products, as well as look up some great recipes that suit any of your cravings!
When I had opened the box and noticed the peppermint flavour, I was a little confused as to how to utilize it. So, I decided to look up some recipes (HE-LLO Pinterest). One that caught my eye: peppermint cocoa smoothie.
handful of ice
1 TB cocoa powder (I use natural unsweetened Hershey’s)
1 packet of stevia
1/4 tsp Simply Organic peppermint flavouring
1/4 tsp Simply Organic vanilla flavouring
3/4 cup unsweetened Almond milk
Combine all ingredients in your blender, and blend, blend, blend!
Kind of reminds me of Junior Mints!
Mint chocolate is one of my top favourite flavours. I am so, so happy I discovered this smoothie because I am almost certain I will be consuming it daily!
