To help your body (and your mind) cope with containment, we asked our beloved adaptogens expert, Eva, to share with us her favorite recipe.
What are adaptogens?
They are non-toxic plants, herbs and fungi that help the body fight against stressors, whichever their source.
In this latte you will find 3 of them:
- Reishi, a fungus known for its abilities to strengthen the immune system, reduce stress and fatigue, and promote a better sleep;
- Maca, which boosts energy and promotes a balanced hormonal system;
- Ashwagandha, natural energy booster that helps fighting fatigue and promotes a better memory.
Ginger and cinnamon have also be included for their antiseptic, energizing and anti-inflammatory properties.
You'll find the ingredients in organic food shops:
-3/4 cup hot water
-1/3 cup plant based milk (oat, rice or almond for example)
-1 tbsp raw cocoa powder
-1 tsp reishi
-1 tsp maca powder
-1/2 tsp ashwagandha powder
-1 tsp mapple syrup or 1 date
-1/4 tsp cinnamon powder
-2 slices or fresh ginger
Mix all the ingredient in a blender, filter any fiber residue if necessary, and indulge into a short meditative break to enjoy all the benefits of your latte.
