Granola Three Ways

Sweet, crunchy and oh-so satisfying, we love a good granola to snack on during the day, or add to our favorite smoothie bowl. Our custom JS collaboration with Grey Gardens called Daytripper, is packed with oats, maple syrup, coconut sugar, almonds, applesauce, coconut oil, mesquite, maca, turmeric, and a touch of vanilla bean leaving you with a balanced, sweet and earthy granola unlike any you’ve tried before. . Besides it tasting delicious, the superfoods it packs is what has us really buzzin’ over this snack:

 

MACA: A personal favorite, I tend to add this root to everything: smoothies, oatmeal, baking , granola, you name it.This superfood, a member of the radish family, boosts energy, builds stamina, balance hormones, and gives you a dose of vitamins B, C, and E.

 

TURMERIC: This little guy helps fight inflammation, strengthens the body’s immune system and increases antioxidant capacity in the body helping to fight free radicals. PS - a shot of pure turmeric juice is the perfect way to fight off a cold or allergies!

 

MESQUITE: Hailing from the Mesquite tree, this superfood boosts your immune system and is a great form of protein with a sweet and nutty flavor..
