  1. National Pecan Day: No-Bake Pecan Pie Bites

    Tomorrow is National Pecan Day and we couldn't think of any better way to celebrate than with a healthy, protein-packed pecan recipe! We love incorporating pecans into our recipes because they're packed with essential vitamins and minerals (19 to be exact), like fiber and calcium. Pecans are also high in healthy fats, which keep you feeling full and satisfied throughout the day. Is there anything this nut can't do?!

    So we thought we’d honor this delicious nut by putting a healthy spin on a classic comfort food: pecan pie. These sweet little things come together quickly, ACTUALLY taste like pecan pie, and are vegan, raw, and gluten free!

    Ingredients

    1 ½ cup raw pecans ½ cup raw almonds 10 medjool dates 2 tsp cinnamon 1 tsp vanilla extract Dash of sea salt Pecan halves to top!

    Directions

    Boil 2 cups... continue reading →

Simply put, our team loved making cold brew and wanted to share it with our customers. As the years went on, we realized that we had a good thing going. Our cold brew was good. Like… really good. That's where nitro came onto the scene. West Michigan is rich with craft beer culture, and we’ve loved seeing the parallels between coffee and beer throughout the years... continue reading →

  3. Spro 'n' Study Playlist

    We've all been there. You're cramming for an exam or trying to meet a deadline but you just can't get in the zone. Besides slamming 3 cups of coffee, we like to throw in a pair of headphones and listen to some instrumental-ish tunes. That's why we've compiled this sweeeet playlist of songs, because we care about you (and your exams/deadlines) <3 

    Happy studying ya'll!
