~ Green Tea Cacao Mania ~
What you want to do FIRST is brew up 3 cups of Green Tea & Gynostemma. I use organic loose leaf tea that I place in a mason jar. I first pour enough COLD spring water to cover the herbs (about and inch of water to be sure that the hot water keeps from scalding them). Pour the rest of the hot spring water, over the cold water and herbs, filling up mason jar. Cover, and let steep for 10 minutes.
NEXT strain tea and pour into blender adding these ingredients:
(Note: All ingredients are organic, non-GMO, and/or wildcrafted)
*Arriba Raw Cacao Paste (1/4 of a square)
*1 TBL Mucuna Extract
*2 TBL Maca Powder
*1 TBL Cinnamon Powder
*1 tsp Bee Mana
*1 tsp Bee Pollen
*1 tsp Lions Mane Extract
*1/8 tsp Reishi Extract
*2 TBL Xylitol
*2 TBL Raw Honey
Blend and serve!!!
(Note: this makes 2 – 3 servings. Although if your bad a** you can drink the whole thing… watch out ) Remember to let the tea cool slightly … warm enough to melt the Arriba cacao paste & cool enough so as to keep the integrity of the ingredients.)
