So my doctor just gave me a few herbal tonics to help balance my thyroid, increase my hemoglobin, and reduce inflammation. I'm supposed to mix all three of them into juice or water and drink. To be honest, they don't taste that great and they kind of make me gag unless I hold my nose. So, I'm trying to come up with drinks that would compliment/mask the flavor of the tonics. I just came up with this delicious mocha latte recipe! You can use this recipe even if you don't have the herbs. The cacao and maca powder provide lots of minerals to support bone density and metabolic processes. The maca is an adaptogenic herb, which means that it helps the body adapt to environmental stress.
1 cup good water
1/2 cup canned coconut milk
1 teaspoon raw or cocoa powder
1 teaspoon raw honey
4 drops liquid or more honey to taste pinch sea salt dash of vanilla extract
Add all ingredients to a blender and blend on high for about 1 minute. Warm over the stove if you are not using a vitamix blender. Enjoy!
