4 Unexpected Ways to Use Olive Oil

While pasta with pesto is an ultimate go-to of ours, olive oil-based cuisine does not need to be limited to pastas and salads. To spark your own culinary creativity, we’ve whipped up four unexpected ways to incorporate Brightland (and the myriad health benefits of clean olive oil) to your everyday diet.

1. Olive Oil Martini

That’s right. Try adding a splash of antioxidants to your Saturday night drink. This Brightland craft cocktail is light, refreshing, and perfect after a long week. (And a surefire way to strike up conversation at your next dinner party or potluck.)

2. Olive Oil as an Ice Cream Topping

Try swapping the more traditional chocolate sauce for Brightland's AWAKE on your ice cream this weekend for a worthwhile indulgence. The smooth texture and robust taste adds a lovely contrast to a simple vanilla ice cream. And, in our opinion, to perfect - sprinkle some flaky sea salt on top.

3. Olive Oil Smoothie

This smoothie's core ingredients (Brightland's ALIVE, blueberries, and spinach) packs the antioxidant punch you need to naturally boost your energy in the morning.

Olive Oil in an Easy Snack

A drizzle of Brightland lends a fresh touch to a simple afternoon snack. Sliced fruit, ricotta, and a few spices are all you need for this easy (and crazy delicious) treat.
