Ginger, cinnamon, real vanilla, nutmeg, cardamom, allspice, cloves and a little black pepper (learn more about benefits of chai spices here). [...]

Vanilla Chai Frozen Yogurt Smoothie

Vanilla chai frozen yogurt smoothie is delicious. Yogurt, whether made from dairy or non-dairy milk, is delicious and filled with probiotics which can help your guy flora balance. We prefer to use vegan yogurts but the choice is yours.  There are some really delicious coconut yogurts on the market and Anita's is one of our favorites.  Ok, maybe we are biased because they started in Brooklyn just like Zenberry but I'm sure you will agree once you have a [...]

Zenberry Energy Smoothie Recipe

Would you eat more vegetables if they tasted like chocolate?  We would! This energy smoothie uses Zenberry Greens which is packed with  leafy greens like kale and spinach but it doesn't taste like lawn clippings or medicine. We hate that.  In addition to the leafy greens it has grasses like wheat and barley grass, sea vegetables (one of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet), algae like spirulina and chlorella, probiotics and enzymes for your gut health, and a [...]

Hazelnut Mocha Frappe Smoothie Recipe

If you love coffee, you know that hazelnut pair really well with it, right? That's why it's one of the most popular flavored coffees in the world. We agree!  This is why we created Zenberry Holy Frappe.
