El Sueño

Happy Friday!

We always look for ways we can carry on our healthy eating habits into other aspects of our lives, while still making room for indulgences.

That’s why we’ve developed our 80:20 Lifestyle Program! Our formula for lifelong vibrancy is simple: Eat and live consciously about 80% of the time, and throw away any thoughts of deprivation the other 20%.

This allows you to continue healthy eating practices while still enjoying a conscious treat every now and then, free from guilt and regret.

Now, who’s in the mood for a Conscious Cocktail?

Enter El Sueño! We’ve put a healthy spin on a refreshing, South-of-the-border inspired cocktail. It’s super refreshing.

Do you have an indulgent recipe you’d like us to give a healthy makeover? Let us know in the comments!


El Sueño

Yield: 2 drinks


¼ cup water
1 TB. honey
20 rosemary leaves, plus 1 rosemary sprig
12 slices English cucumber wheels, sliced very thin
3/4 oz. fresh lime juice
3 oz. blanco tequila
Lime flavored La Croix (or soda water)

In a saucepan over medium heat, combine water and honey until honey is dissolved, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

In a cocktail shaker, muddle the rosemary leaves with 6 of the cucumber wheels, the lime juice and a ounce and a half of dissolved honey mixture. Fill the shaker with ice, add tequila and shake well.

To serve, layer the remaining 6 cucumber wheels with ice. Strain the drink into the prepared glass, top with La Croix, gently stir to combine, and garnish with the rosemary sprig.

Jo Schaalman and Jules Peláez are co-authors of the book The Conscious Cleanse: Lose Weight, Heal Your Body and Transform Your Life in 14 Days, a best-selling, step-by-step guide to help you live your most vibrant life. Together they’ve led thousands of people through their online supported cleanse through their accessible and light-hearted approach. They’ve been dubbed “the real deal” by founder and chief creative director Bobbi Brown, of Bobbi Brown Cosmetics, beauty editor of the TODAY show.
