App Sale + Giveaway | Java Shake w Maca & Strawberry @ www.earthsprout.com

I’m thinking, should I refrain from going all ’Friday Friday, gotta get down on Friday..’? I guess not. So.. Happy Friday party people!

Fabians off work and we’re hanging out by the beach for a few days, soaking up that ocean breeze and playing with our boys. It’s my father in-law’s summer house, the one we lived in for 2 years before moving out last June and it’s odd and also comforting being back ”home”.

Being here makes me think of the saying ”Your home is where your heart is”. It says so much but notice the little hidden twist. Our true home is within ourselves. Within our hearts. Within our love. That’s ”where our heart is”. Certain places will always call to us and make us feel nurtured or inspired. True, they can even make us feel ”home” but I believe that’s because we’re then on a spot where our heart feels free and at ease. Wherever we are, we need to strive to plant ourselves in environments where our souls can be wide open and absolutely nuttily joyous. By the way, that could totally just mean going for walks, spending time doing something creative or hugging a loved one.

We sure have had some crazy living arrangements over the last years and I know we will get to land on a spot of our own soon. The most important thing though, is centering in love and feel right at home wherever I am. At least, you know.. almost all the time. #imhumantoo

App Summer Sale + Giveaway

Anyway, I’m a little bit distracted writing this because the ’Java Shake w Maca & Strawberry’ in the pictures is so good it makes my brain go for imaginary trips to the kitchen again and again. This recipe is a riff on the Java Smoothie in my app 30 Raw Breakfasts and it’s just such a treat (with all of the health benefits too!).

I am a hard-core breakfast enthusiast. Always have been, always will be. I know not everyone feels this way so as an effort to spread delicious and inspired morning meals I developed and launched the 30 Raw Breakfast app a couple of years back. It’s filled with app-exclusive recipes and I use it often because I need to infuse my plate with fresh ideas too. All the recipes are super easy to make (10-ish minutes or less) plus most of them can be prepared beforehand and they are all superheroes in the nutrition department.

Summer feels like the perfect time to up our breakfast game and I want everyone to feel amazing in the mornings (makes for way better days too) so I had a strike of genius that resulted it this APP SUMMER FRIGGIN’ SALE! We dumped the price to 2 dollars, added a refreshing new summer recipe and some new features (so for everyone that already has it, go update!). I’m also giving away 10 apps, for free. Because, love.

How to enjoy the app NOW: Find the app on app store HERE. The Summer Sale continues until next Friday, July 16th. Go!

How to enter giveawayLeave a comment below this post with your fave breakfast spot and dream breakfast company (I’m nosy) and I’ll randomly pick 10(!) winners on Wednesday (July 14th). Share the word!

Java Shake w Maca & Strawberry

A riff on the Java Smoothie in my 30 Raw Breakfast app, this delicious and great-for-you dessert/snack/breakfast is all you need this summer. Really easy to prepare, pretty darn sensuous to devour and leaves you on such a high (on the good stuff). That’s why I named it Java Shake. No need for caffein in this one. 

1-2 servings

Strawberry Chia layer
2 handfuls fresh strawberries
2 tbsp chia seeds (I used white chia seeds because I wanted them to just look like strawberry seeds but you can use whichever color)

  1. Rinse and pick through strawberries and add to a bowl along with the chia seeds. Blend with a hand blender until smooth. Let sit for at least 10 minutes (or overnight) Add to a bowl/glass.

Java Shake layer
1/2 cup water + 1 cup for soaking
3 tbsp sesame seeds
1 large banana, peeled and frozen in pieces
1/4 large avocado, peeled and pitted
1/4 tsp maca powder (I like this one)
1 tsp carob powder 
1.5 tsp raw or roasted cacao powder, unsweetened
4-6 cardamom seeds or 1/4 tsp ground cardamom
1/4 tsp pure ground vanilla
1 date, pitted (optional)

  1. Add sesame seeds to the 1 cup of water and let soak for at least 3 hours or overnight. Rinse thoroughly and add to a blender (preferably a high-speed blender). You can skip this step but soaking will be better health-wise. If you skip soaking, then rinse the sesame seeds very thoroughly in warm water before using. 
  2. Add all other ingredient to the blender and blend away until thick and silky smooth. Add to the bowl/glass of strawberry chia mix. 

Topping
1+ tsp cacao nibs
3+ fresh strawberries
3 tbsp whipped coconut cream 
To make coconut whip: 1 can of full fat coconut milk, refrigerated overnight, solid top layer scooped out. Blend half of the solid layer with 1/2 tsp honey or maple syrup and a touch of pure ground vanilla using a hand blender or a hand wisk until soft). Store leftover (?) coconut whipped cream in airtight container in the fridge for 3 days. Use leftover coconut cream and coconut milk in cooking/smoothies/soups.

    Ummm this looks SO dreamy!!!

    My favorite breakfast spot is this place called Cafe My House in Ottawa. They are completely vegan but completely gourmet. Their weekend brunch is heaven, with vegan waffle BLTs, fennel sausage, raw granola and coconut yogurt and many more.

    My dream breakfast company would have plenty of acai bowls and vegan nice cream, granolas, oats, crepes and delicious almond milk lattes.

    My favorite breakfast place is Choice Health Bar in Maui! They have the most amazing raw food, killer available bowls, tons of juices & smoothies, & raw desserts that changed my life!!! I love love love them. I wish I lived in Maui so I could go there everyday!

    And I think my dream breakfast company be a place that does all sorts of oatmeals & porridges. Hot, cold, fruity, savory, simple, decadent. That would be pretty cool.

    My favourite breakfast spot is Little Bird Organics in Auckland, New Zealand. I love going there with friends and just unwinding. The space is light and airy, and if you saw their raw food treat cabinet, oh my… you’d probably fall in love!

    My most gorgeous breakfast spot was on the roof of a high rise building in Quito, Ecuador where me and my now-husband secretely camped one evening. Quito is way up high in the Andes and waking up staring at the mountains in urban chaos was pretty cool. My favourite breakfast is a massive mug of green tea with raw vegan bircher muesli :)

    My very favorite breakfast spot is on Kauai, on a balcony overlooking the pacific ocean, with my husband of 27+ years, eating Ezekiel bread toast with Guava-jam, a soy or coconut latte, half a papaya filled with fresh-squeezed orange juice, watching the sunrise – It is absoulte paradise, nothing better!

    Can’t wait to try this recipe, it looks and sounds amazing – who knows maybe this will be my new favorite.

    I love to eat breakfast in the garden, or in bed, my favourite is buckwheat bread toast made with Big Oz organic buckwheat flour, and topped with tahini or peanut butter. I’m a simple girl, never get bored of it! Home is def where the heart is happy you’re so right. Our house isn’t ours but it is our home <3

    My favourite breakfast spot is definitely outside in nature – anywhere! I’ve got a forest near where I live, full of wild flowers and it’s absolutely beautiful to go to enjoy a peaceful environment. I love to enjoy a big smoothie bowl or oatmeal by myself or with my friends or family or little pup!

    A memorable breakfast experience was feasting on the most deliciously sweet papaya and pineapple alfresco at sunrise with the Maui waves crashing in the background, and sand between my toes. Dreamy.

    My everyday favorite breakfast is a steamy mug of coffee with some scrumptious raw bliss balls or bars! Love having something sweet, and dessert-y yet fairly healthy for breakfast! Would love to win this app so I can try out some new yummy raw treats with my coffee!

    My favorite breakfast spot is on Cape Cod. It’s home. I appreciate mornings of waking early, greeting a slow sunrise, feeling the cool sea air, and being in the silence of the early hours on the beach. My favorite spot is called Dobra Tea House in both Burlington, VT and Northampton, MA.

    Hmmm, I wish I could gobble this up right now, it looks so refreshing!
    Lately I’m really into vegan overnight chia oats with some fresh fruit and homemade super sprinkle (a mix of ground flax and sesame seeds, raw cacao and rosehip powder).
    And as for the company, as much as I adore my little three-month-old I really prefer to savour my breakfast all alone after a long, long night…

    One word: delicious!

    I was actually looking for an alternative to coffee flavour, this is definitely it! And without the headaches trembling etc that caffeine gives me. The whipped creme just brings it to a whole other level :)

    You’re amazing and inspiring as always Elenore! Very hard not to love someone who makes such good food!

    My moms over easy eggs. I’ve watched her make them hundreds of times quizzing and questioning every turn and move. I’ve shamelessly stole pans and spatulas to re-create them at home. From all the practice I’ve definitely gotten better, but nothing compares to hers…must be mama magic.

    Hmm, a favourite breakfast spot is a little tricky! Maybe one of the beautiful lakes in this area (there are over 100 000 in my province!) after camping. Fave breakfast friend, in that case, is my partner Graham! Otherwise breakfast at my omi’s house, with her, where I spent so much time as a child. She always has muesli. I’m so happy you’re doing this giveaway/sale, Elenore! Especially because I haven’t been able to get your app because I had an android phone, but I have an iPhone now for when we move to Germany in September. <3

    My favourite breakfast spot is definitely in my family’s summerhouse by the lake here in Sweden. It’s a wonderful feeling to sit outside surrounded by Mother Natures music to enjoy a nice, newly created breakfast-creation – that’s what I call pure magic! In my company would probbably be my mom or best friend who would enjoy it as much as me :)

    Breakfast is by far my favorite meal of the day! I’m definitely a sweet over savory breakfast person. I don’t know why, but I just always crave a sweet treat to start my day! My favorite breakfast spot is actually in Los Angeles, where I lived before moving here to Hong Kong. I used to go to Moon Juice Shop to pick up a thick moon shake and raw vegan cinnamon roll or strawberry geranium bars. I miss it so much! I actually wanted to open my own smoothie bowl shop here in Hong Kong, but the rent is so high. I dream about it being very beachy, serving up vegan smoothie bowls with fresh fruit, dark chocolate, homemade granola, coconut, and different types of healthy toppings!
