In my brand new digital cookbook book (which becomes available Sept 27th), I have added a section all about elixirs.
I make these babies in the morning, while my kids and I are getting ready for school. If you have kids, you know that getting out the door in the morning can become a total gong show, am I right?! These elixirs give me the fuel I need to keep up with the kids, and keep me satiated for a couple hours, until I have time to make breakfast.
Simplicity Tip: If you don’t have every item in this recipe, don’t let it hold you back! This is one of the more jam-packed elixirs. Pick and choose from what you have on hand. Keep in mind the basic idea from this one is to add the fat sources (butter, cocoa butter, MCT oil**) to keep you full and satisfied.
Satiating Morning Elixir
- 1 cup of hot water + 1 tbsp of dandy blend
- OR 1 cup of fresh brewed organic coffee
- 1 tbsp of collagen
- 1 tbsp of grass fed butter
- 1 chunk of cocoa butter
- 1 tsp of MCT oil (optional)**
- 1 tsp of maca
- dash of turmeric
- dash of cinnamon
- Put everything into your blender
- Close the lid and place a tea towel over top of your blender lid. Hold the lid down.
- Blend on low speed until everything is blended and frothy
- Serve in your favourite mug and enjoy
**You can use coconut oil if you don’t have MCT oil. Coconut oil doesn’t offer the exact same nutrients as MCT, but it is still a healthy fat source.
