CLOUD POWDER 3 WAYS – the coconutty creamer all your bevs need
It seems like fancy drinks have become all the rage.
zero proof wines.
sparkly spritzer cbd cans.
you name it.
two things I know for sure:
- I AM HERE FOR ITTT.
- My instagram ads algorithm really knows me LOL my feed is constantly dazzling me with vibey glassware and bubbly drinks sprinkled with edible flowers from the fountain of youth!
and if you know me IRL, you know that I'm never caught without something to sip on -- it's weird because my 4 siblings and I actually discovered that we are literally all like this ... as if we would fully malfunction without some kind of drink in one hand. Are we alone here???
I’m a big believer in romanticizing my liiiife.
that means, being intentional and making choices to up-level even the tiniest of details, simply for the absolute pleasure and joy that they bring.
no, my handmade ceramic pink coffee mug from the local women-owned boutique does NOT actually keep my coffee hotter for longer ... but isn't she absolutely gorrrrgeous and see how she nestles right into my hands perfectly with all of her curves? mmmmmm! she literally makes every sip a little bit sweeter and every moment more melty.
I'm obsessed with making "fancy bevs" at home. maybe it's because I don't really cook, so that's my way of over-compensating.
insert -- all the potions!
and -- coconut cloud powder!
so easy to spruce up any Bev.
full of healthy benefits.
AND clear skin friendly.
DID YOU KNOW ...
dairy is a major culprit in the battle with breakouts.
consuming dairy doesn’t mean you will start having acne.
but if you are struggling with active acne, you will likely continue to struggle until you eliminate dairy. For some of my clients, this change alone dramatically cleared up their skin within a month!
once you’re all cleared up and the acne is at bay, many people can introduce dairy back in without any skin issues.
so, if you’re on the journey to clearing your skin:
dairy in your coffee or matcha = big no no.
whey protein powder in your smoothies or bars = big no no.
swap out for milk alternatives and coconut cloud powder :)

coffee + nootropics to boost brain performance and sustain energy
I’m a coffee lover to my core but you could also make this in the mornings with matcha or herbal coffee alternatives.
I love to set an intention with my coffee before I take my first sip. It’s my literal favorite 5 seconds of my entire day.
— how to make —
1 cup brewed coffee
2 heaping scoops of cloud powder creamer
1 tablespoon mct oil or grass-fed butter — love these emulsified mct oils from Onnit https://www.onnit.com/emulsified-mct-oil/
a dash of cinnamon
1 tablespoon metabolism super powder — has a chocolatey taste and kicks up digestion for the day https://www.sakara.com/collections/supplements/products/metabolism-super-powder?variant=15618292482157
I have lots of fun adaptogen powders from Moon Juice and Sun Potion so I just have fun and dash a little of this, a little of that and it’s never really the same twice. I just go with my gut and toss some in each time, knowing I’m getting the benefits of all the brain + body boosting ingredients on the regular.
blend and serve hot or over ice
