The world of wellness does not cease to make us wonder and surprise us really – from moon juices to probiotic ice creams, so much has come up over the past year we really do not know where to start.
CBD bake off
We all know ‘By Chloe’. Delicious fast food vegan style, influencer-favourite destination both in the US and in London. did you know that ‘By Chloe’ also has its very own dessert shops, called (you guessed) Sweets by Chloe?
Its NYC locations debuted a very special pop-up: Feelz by Chloe. This is a line featuring mouth-watering desserts, including cupcakes and brownies, all infused with CBD Oil. The line, featuring more than 25 desserts, is infused with Toast’s high-quality, two-ingredient CBD Oil, which is made from cannabidiol. Sadly this is just a two week pop-up transforming the shops into into a two-week, ’70s-inspired pop-up experience.
Don’t despair though – the CBD-infused deliciousness isn’t going anywhere! After the pop-up ends, select Feelz items will be available to purchase in all By Chloe locations in the country, as well as our HBC team local London location.
Cultured ice cream is pretty much what it says on the tin—it’s gelato that has been made with a cultured water kefir coconut cream, which luckily for us, contains a hell of a lot of good bacteria for your gut.
Have a gut-friendly scoop of ice cream
What if your next scoop of ice-cream was packed with a four billion colony of good bacteria and yeast strains, all in a 100 gram serve size? Welcome to the Cultured Ice Cream Company’s ice cream: dairy-free, grain-free, sugar-free creaminess made from 30 per cent cultured water kefir coconut cream.
“Cultured ice cream contains a plethora of floral probiotic strains, achieved using a water kefir culture. Probiotics build the colonies of flora within our digestive tract which in turn boost our immune system and strengthen our first line of defence against pathogens,” Healthy Life Naturopath Charlotte Williams shared to Sporteluxe.
We can argue whether we do need our ice cream to be filled with prebiotics or probiotics, however, products like cultured ice cream show us that the interested in gut-friendly products is not going to fade any time soon.
Drinking moon juices
If a trend rises on Instagram, we can assure it’s going to be catching on – this is why when we started to see purple and pink tinted cups of milk we knew something was going on. Welcome to moon milk: a trend that is actually 100 years old. In Ayurvedic medicine, the blend of milk, spices and adaptogens is thought to reduce anxiety and aid sleep.
The basic recipe includes medicinal mushroom ashwagandha, turmeric, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, honey and, of course, any milk of choice.
“The end of each day is made mindfully medicinal with a concoction of warmed nut milk with holy basil and ashwagandha spiced with cardamom, cinnamon and a dash of local honey,” naturopath and Orchard St founder Kirsten Shanks explained to Vogue Australia.
Obviously, if you leave such a trend to Instagram, things are doomed to go slightly overboard – this is why we can find lavender, rose and unicorn moon juices scattered around our feeds. As Winter approaches, this is a trend we are all ears for.
The pinterest plant everyone is hot about right now
If you love Pinterest as much as we do, you surely have spotted a Monstera recently popping in your recommended feed. In fact, a recent report from Pinterest found searches for it are up a whopping 176 percent.
Also known as the Swiss cheese plant due the holes between its leaves, the Monstera deliciosa originally hails from the forests of southern Mexico. With the #MonsteraMonday hashtag roaring on Instagram, the Monstera is really easy to take care of. Apartment Therapy notes the the plant thrives in normal indoor temps in filtered, indirect light.
According to Racked, its popularity started growing in the ’70s, and then it later graced the living-room set on Golden Girls. And now, millennials are going crazy for this bad boy, so much so that you’ll see it popping in your ‘plant lady’ friends’ feed really soon.
