After all that work of getting the dinner on the table, let’s keep it simple yet delicious! Here are 3 ways I recommend to make a holiday cup of Teeccino depending on how many guests you’ll be serving:

Dear Teeccino family,
We are all one big family, aren’t we? No matter all the differences this year’s election process has provoked, our common bonds rise above the fray and our humanity is revealed every day in all the many ways we give to one another: friend, family and stranger.
Even to those we think of as foes! When we give respect, love and forgiveness, our hearts reach across the divide that we imagine separates us. We are reminded that we all need and want to be loved, to share love, and to create a loving life. Standing in the place of love, we see each other as ourselves, not as something different to be disparaged or rejected.
I am an optimist by nature and thus I believe that whatever happens in our lives is here to help us evolve as both human and spiritual beings. But it is hard to understand how this can be so in the face of so much suffering by those living in war torn countries. How to reconcile the massive amounts of pain and death that we witness through our media and still maintain that vision for a positive future?
My challenge this year has been to hold opposite feelings, opposite beliefs, and opposite experiences of reality while reconciling them within myself through finding the common bond of love that unites opposites together. I recognize that my limited ability to perceive the whole, and the importance of every single one of its many parts, makes this world seem imperfect. I stay committed to the vision that the unfolding of our human journey moves us ever closer to the peace and happiness for everyone that each of us wants for ourselves.
My heart goes out to those of you who have suffered loss, pain, and health problems during 2016. By witnessing our own and each other’s suffering, our empathy and compassion expands. May these trials help all of us find our common humanity in order to bridge our imaginary divides.
We send each of you, our Teeccino family members, our gratitude and our intention to serve your needs, one cup at a time, in the year to come. We intend to bring you more pleasurable moments while contributing to your wellness by expanding Teeccino’s array of beverages with super herbs and super foods that help create optimal health. It is the daily cups of plant-based brews that provide us with both nourishing micronutrients for our bodies and precious moments for our spirits to connect with ourselves and others. May you enjoy many such delicious sips of a steaming mug of Teeccino during this holiday season!
With love, Caroline
Here’s a smoothie that tastes like an iced blended drink from your local coffee bar but isn’t loaded with refined sugar and won’t send your blood sugar soaring. Cashews create a creamy smoothness and rich body with both protein and healthy fats. Dates with a banana kick up the sweetness without any added sugar.
Make this smoothie with delicious Teeccino Caramel Nut, either Dandelion or Mediterranean, and you’ll soon be enjoying its yummy, thick, creaminess that is tummy-filling too! Want even more body? Add TeeChia Super Seed Cereal and enjoy a meal replacement that keeps you energized and full for hours.

- 12 dates, pitted
- 1/4 cup cashews, soaked
- 1 banana
- Whey or rice protein powder
- 1/4 cup TeeChia
