Taking my herbs is something I look forward to every day. Not only do they help me to think clearly and feel good, but I’ve learned how to make them taste delicious.
Here I have homemade hot cocoa with collagen for skin and joint health and a homemade immune tonic with astragalus and mushrooms to keep me well throughout the fall and winter season. This warm and cozy drink is very calming and I look forward to drinking it as my day winds down. No, you cannot taste the herbs.
- 1 1/2 cups almond milk
- 2 tsp cocoa powder
- 1 tsp coconut oil
- 1 scoop collagen powder
- 1 dropperful of my homemade immune tincture (astragalus, atractylodes, siler, rishi, chaga and turkey tail mushrooms)
- 1 tsp of raw and unfiltered local honey
I blend everything except the honey in my frother until the drink is warmed. You could also use a blender or warm it up on the stove. Raw honey is packed with immune-boosting properties that can be destroyed by heat so I add it right before I'm about to enjoy it. Top with a dash of cinnamon. Try adding herbs to your warm beverages and let me know what you think. Enjoy!
