Buddha Brands Co. Giveaway

Buddha Brands Co- Coconut almond balls, chocolate smoothie, chia fresca

Who's ready for a giveaway?! I could not be more excited to introduce you to Buddha Brands Company and their line of delicious, rejuvenating, all around good for you drinks and snacks. If you didn't already know, the healthy properties of coconuts are mind-blowing. They are known to improve heart health, help with digestion, increase metabolism, are antibacterial (fights off fungus & yeast) and are high in dietary fibre. It’s safe to say I’m obsessed with these little magical (ridiculously hard to open— yes, I bought a whole one) fruits, or nuts, or seeds (whatever they are), in every form (oil, milk, water, flakes, etc.). Buddha Brands Company has taken one of the ultimate super foods and developed healthy, deliciously addictive and innovate snacks and beverages to balance your body from within.  They promote a lifestyle that focuses on healthy and happy living and seeking balance, which I am all for!

Buddha Brands Co Coconut Water Chia Fresca

In addition to original coconut water, Buddha Brands Co. has developed new Thirsty Buddha Coconut Water With Aloe Vera to help you glow from the inside out. The water contains aloe vera, which has rejuvenating, healing and soothing properties, so this water is really the ultimate beauty/wellness beverage. The subtly sweet, crisp and refreshing taste is great on it’s own and in smoothies, or made into cocktails (hi there, healthy cocktails!), or my flavoured chia seed fresca (see below).

Buddha Brands Co. also offers a line of Hungry Buddha coconut chip snacks that I am equally obsessed with. The four flavours are Classic Coconut, Smokin' Sriracha, Cheeky Chocolate, and Wild Wasabi. They are the perfect on the go snack for whatever flavour you are feeling, or can be added in to dishes or as toppers to enhance your recipes. Think smoothies, salads, avo toast... the possibilities are endless! 

Buddha Brands Co- Coconut Almond Balls, Chocolate Protein Smoothie

I took the products and added them to a few different recipes to get you thinking of exciting new ways to experience Buddha Brands Co. I added the chips to my coconut almond balls, created a refreshing chocolatey (high in protein) smoothie with the original coconut water, and created an Aloe-Mint-Lime Chia Fresca. Make all three and let me know your favourite! 

Buddha Brands Co- Coconut Almond Balls
