Stress-Busting Adaptogen Latte
While using herbal tinctures for their adaptogenic properties is highly effective, they leave a lot to be desired from a taste perspective. Lattes, on the other hand, are downright delicious and perfect to sip on any time of day.
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 tbsp almond butter
1 tsp Navitas Organics Cacao Powder
1 tsp Navitas Organics Maca Powder
1 tsp reishi powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
maple syrup, to sweeten as needed
Warm the almond milk in a small saucepan on the stove. (It’s ok if it separates as you do this).
Transfer the milk to a blender, along with all remaining ingredients. Blend until completely smooth.
Add maple syrup to sweeten, if desired.
Pour the latte into a mug and top with an extra sprinkle of cinnamon or Cacao Powder before serving.
Note: This latte is also lovely as a before-bed drink because of the relaxing effect of reishi, but I recommend omitting the Maca Powder if you enjoy it at that time since it’s naturally energizing.
