After Dinner Delight
Think of this dessert beverage as an herbal hot chocolate: something sweet, soothing, and satisfying all in one cup! Peppermint cools and calms digestion, while Licorice Root relaxes and supports the adrenals. And why not enjoy the comforts of a little chocolate at the same time? Feel free to experiment with this recipe according to your taste:
In a saucepan, bring water to a boil, add Licorice Root herb, then reduce heat and let simmer for 10 minutes. Strain out herb from liquid and pour into cup over fresh Peppermint and Cacao nibs/powder. Let steep for about 10 minutes, then strain out extra herb and enjoy.
You can drink this as is or add your milk of choice (hemp, rice, and coconut milks are lovely) and some honey if a sweeter flavor is desired (Licorice is naturally sweet, so be sure to taste it first!).
Immune Boosting Lemon & Ginger Tea
Try this fresh and invigorating tea the next time you're feeling under the weather. It's quick, easy, and uses many common - but highly medicinal - kitchen ingredients. Lemon is cleansing and detoxifying to our system, making it a great go-to ingredient during the first signs of illness. Ginger aids digestion and circulation, warming our bodies and settling upset stomachs. Cayenne is warming as well, but also synergizes any formula that it is in, carrying it into our systems quicker. Here's the recipe:
In a saucepan, bring water to a boil, add fresh ginger, then reduce heat and let simmer for 10 minutes. Strain out ginger and add freshly squeezed Lemon juice and Honey to taste. Top off with a pinch of Cayenne Pepper, mix and enjoy.
