Vodka

Kale and Green Appletini

I have been in love 😍 with ALOHA lately. From my morning protein shake (try it free) to my meal replacement bar at lunch, they've got it going on! Which is why I'm totally digging this martini... And I'm not normally a fan of an "Appletini," as they're usually super sugary and syrupy and unusually bright green. Not this one. Alo-haa! 

Makes Two Drinks

Ingredients

1 cup water or coconut water

1 green apple, pit and steam removed

1 cup chopped kale

2 stalks celery

1 lemon, juiced

2 shots vodka of choice

1 teaspoon ALOHA Daily Good Greens

Preparation

Add all ingredients into a blender. Blend on high for about three minutes. Pour into two glasses and garnish as desired.

Classic Vegan White Russian

I am OBSESSED with the new Califia Cold Brew Coffee and the Hazelnut creamer. I don't do creamer, but when I do, it's this one and it's heavenly. Combine that with vodka? And I just died and went to heaven...

 

Vegan White Russian
• 1.5 parts vodka (preferably organic)

• 0.5 part Califia Farms Concentrated Cold Brew Coffee (add a little water to lighten it up)

• Splash of Califia Farms Vanilla Almondmilk Coffee Creamer

• Ice
Directions: Combine ingredients in shaker and pour over ice.

 

Mix it up: Try Pecan Caramel or Hazelnut coffee creamer in place of Vanilla for an added flavor

 

Make it Skinny: Cut the calories and sugar by swapping the coffee creamer with Califia Farms Unsweetened Vanilla Almondmilk

 

Why It’s Better: Dairy-free (perfect for those with dairy intolerance) and lower in calories. Plus, by eliminating the traditional coffee liqueur with fresher ingredients, you’re kicking the extra sugar.
