My Daily Coffee Elixir
I had many requests to share the recipe for my daily favourite coffee elixir after sharing how I make it on Instagram. Because of the requests, here you are!
As always, thank you all so much for requesting recipes. Thank you for ACTUALLY caring about the recipes I create and content I publish on both my Instagram and my growing little recipe blog.
Big big love to you all. Thank you for being apart of this growth.
Be mindful that this recipe is more of a guideline. Feel free to use a little more of this or that to suit your taste preference, get creative by adding different herbs, and really try to notice how this coffee makes you feel after. I always add adaptogens such as mushrooms, ashwaganda, maca
root etc in my coffee because I love how it affects my mood and boosts cognitive function. I like adding fats because it makes the coffee a little less harsh on my stomach and my bowels, and it is very satiating because my body is fuelled by the healthy fat sources. The collagen adds a bit of protein (9g/tbsp) along with gut healing amino acids and also helps to keep you fuller for longer.
Morning coffee is the best. It's relaxing, warming and the perfect way to stay the day.
So head into your kitchen in your cozy robe and warm slippers and enjoy your morning cup of coffee! Don't forget to let me know what you think in the comments below!
