I’m on such a coffee kick these days. I only have one cup a day, but it has to be THE best, and it has to be powerful, smart, delicious….AND it must be powerful….improve my mental stamina, and give me tons of energy!
I’ve been experimenting with different milk alternatives as dairy bloats me….(I just don’t have the digestive enzymes for the dairy), and my favorite so far is oat milk. I absolutely love it, although any non-dairy milk will work just fine! If you have the opportunity to order a cappuccino with oat milk, though, don’t hesitate – it’s creamy and tastes amazing.
I’ve been experimenting with several recipes lately in order to help improve my brain power & stamina. I also wanted to see what else I could add in my coffee that would taste delicious, but also give me some additional benefits besides energy.
I came up with a recipe that I’m sharing with you in this blog. It not only improves my energy, but the maca and ashwagandha help to calm my nervous system and improve my hormone function – added bonus – the taste is sinfully delicious!
It only takes a few extra minutes to make, but you’ll feel the power from these ingredients all day. I’ve also shared my favorite brands and their websites (just click on the ingredient and it will take you to the particular site).
- 1 cup of your favorite organic, low acid coffee – freshly brewed
- ¼ cup – ⅓ cup oat milk – steamed or warmed
- ½ tsp ashwagandha
- ½ tsp organic maca powder
- 1 tsp (or up to 1 tbsp) 4th & heart ghee
- Add your choice of sweetener such as raw honey or coconut palm sugar (optional)
Combine all ingredients in your blender for a minute or two, or use an immersion blender. Pour into your favorite coffee mug and enjoy your delicious, healthy, and super smart cup of joe!
