Zenberry Vegan Protein Pancake Recipe

"...but where do you get your protein?" A vegetarian since 2003/2004, I've heard this question more times than anything else.  Especially since I've been a competitive endurance athlete that entire time.  I can tell you that my athletic performance only improved once I became a vegetarian and I think that was due to the lower inflammation and the fact that it was much easier to maintain my optimal weight for racing.

Chai-licious Smoothie Recipe

This warm, comforting drink is just what we need during the colder months of autumn and winter. The calming chai spices help warm the body from the inside and taste delicious this time of year.  Zenberry Vanilla Chai uses a custom organic, fair-trade spice blend not a cheap chai flavoring like most other drink mixes on the market. 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 [...]

Rise and Shine Smoothie Recipe

The Rise & Shine Smoothie is a great way to start your day. Full of superfoods and leafy greens plus the boost of organic, fair-trade espresso beans, this quick breakfast will power you through to lunch.  There are new studies showing some health benefits of coffee.  While it's not perfect and each individual person may react differently to coffee and caffeine, it's not the dietary sin it used to be.  Coffee has shown to benefit the cardiovascular system, liver [...]

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. Like hazelnut, chocolate (mocha) goes so well with all things coffee, too so it was a no-brainer when it came to creating a formula with organic espresso beans roasted right here in NYC.  Delicious coffee and chocolate, a dash or organic cinnamon [...]

Morning Coffee Smoothie Recipe

Good morning! Our Zenberry Holy Frappe was "hot off the presses" Thursday! Our organic fair-trade espresso, procured from our favorite Brooklyn-based roaster (Jailhouse coffee), was freshly ground the day before the Zenberry Holy Frappe production run. Super fresh! Coffee is big with riders, cyclists like Shane and motorcycle riders like me (this photo was taken by my friend Dominic who is also the President of NY Classic Riders Club I affiliate with). I usually bring my green juice or Zenberry smoothie in my backpack when I ride [...]
