Zenberry chocolate smoothie in glass

Aztec Gold Smoothie Recipe

This creamy chocolate Zenberry smoothie will take you south of the US border to beautiful Mexico! With its cacao, cayenne (or chili pepper) and cinnamon heat, it is a hot, hot, hot and delicious smoothie. As you know, we're cacao lovers and eat it daily (why we haven't gotten tired of our best-seller Zenberry Greens in a decade!). Cacao is considered "the food of the gods".  Cacao beans have been used as food, medicine, and even currency (Aztec) for thousands of...

Decadent Chocolexir Smoothie Recipe

Our chocolate lover friends told us that this smoothie reminds them of Godiva's Decadence Chocolexir. This is a healthy breakfast but can also be a decadent midday treat or dessert on date night as a pre-sex smoothie. It has potassium-rich banana as well as polyphenol-rich blueberries, nitrate-rich leafy greens, superfood maca and chocolate from Zenberry Greens and pomegranate seeds. It is said that Aphrodite, herself, planted the Pomegranate tree giving it the attributes of sensuality, fertility and eroticism. (side note:...

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.

Zenberry Vanilla Chai smoothie

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). All...

How to Use Zenberry for Quick Workout Recovery

How to Use Zenberry for Recovery The most important time to consume calories after your hard workout or race is the 30 minute window immediately after you finish.  The body is primed to take up glycogen (the stored energy in your muscles) at this time so don't miss it or you won't recovery quite as well.  What else is important? Studies show that some simple sugars (one of the few times pure sugar is good), a little bit of protein and...

Zenberry at WeWork

WeWork Last week, Emma and I were invited to share samples of Zenberry to all of the members at WeWork on Lexington Ave in Manhattan.   We had a lot of fun meeting all of the diverse, driven and creative entrepreneurs and professionals that share this beautiful space. Goji Fitness/Zenberry rents space at the location on Fulton Street further south so we are familiar with how great this new type of shared business space is in today's world. What is WeWork? WeWork is a...
Vanilla Chai Yogurt Smoothie

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 taste. Zenberry...
Zenberry Energy Smoothie

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 sane...
Rise and Shine Smoothie

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 as...

Spirulina: The Ultimate Smoothie Ingredient?

Spirulina I recently had an in-depth medical examination as a part of the World Trade Center Monitoring Program (I was present at WTC on 9/11/2001 and the months following) which included a chest X-Ray. I'm not a big fan of X-Rays and try to only have them when absolutely necessary.  I think checking my chest for tumors is a good reason to get one but it made me think about foods and supplements that can help the body deal with toxins...
