Transform your morning routine by mixing up herbs, superfoods and healing teas to create a magical daily health elixir. Below we've shared with you one of our favourite elixir blends, which is full of transformational foods that will help bring balance to your entire being. In the mix we have antioxidant rich and brain supporting raw cacao; mood and hormone balancing maca; energizing and oxygenating cordyceps; harmonizing and immune supporting ashwagandha; and creamy vitamineral rich tocos. When these herbs and superfoods are blended up with coconut oil, honey and tea a dreamy and nutritive drink is born.

1 heaping Tbs raw cacao
1 heaping tsp maca
1/4 tsp cordyceps

Brew your tea of choice and then add the tea and the remaining ingredients into a blender. Start on low and gently increase the speed of the blender. Watch your elixir come to life, full of frothy goodness. Serve it up in your favourite mug and enjoy in your sacred space.
