Adaptogenic Rose Mocha

Feb 16, 2022

Coffee has a special place in our hearts and we love to use our morning brew for its cognitive enhancing benefits as well as mood and metabolism-boosting effects.

We've added in some of our favorite adaptogenic and herbal superfood ingredients like rose, cacao, cinnamon, and maca.


Ingredients Explained

Rose

According to Ayurvedic Medicine, rose helps to soothe the heart and emotions and can assist in healing from past griefs so that one can move on and enjoy the present moment. Rose has cooling and astringing health benefits and is especially beneficial during the hot summer months for those that tend to get ‘pitta’ (fiery) imbalance, however, can be used throughout the year to balance all 3 doshas.

Both cinnamon and rose have blood sugar balances effects and so they pair perfectly with coffee.

We get our rose powder from Mountain Rose Herbs. If you don't have rose powder and want to make this right away, you can use rose tea or rose water.

Cacao

Cacao is said to contain 40x the amount of antioxidants as blueberries! Cacao is also loaded with iron and magnesium. Cacao is the highest plant-based source of iron known to man, at a whopping 7.3mg per 100g.  This compares to beef at 2.5mg, and spinach at 3.6mg.  

Cacao is also a great source to help combat depression. Cacao is a great source of four scientifically proven bliss chemicals – serotonin, tryptophan, tyrosine, and phenylethylamine.  These neurotransmitters are associated with a deeper sense of wellbeing, happiness, and can even alleviate depression.  

If you took our recent Cacao Ceremony and Valentine's Day Dessert Class, you've already discovered all the amazing and mood-enhancing benefits of cacao. You can still purchase the recording here. Learn to use cacao as a ceremonial or meditation tool as well as many other desserts with this powerful superfood!

We love this ceremonial cacao or this organic cacao powder.

Coffee

Not all coffee is created equally. Over 97% of the world’s coffee is considered “commercial coffee,” a commodity crop grown to maximize yield, sprayed with pesticides, stored in a way that encourages mold growth and oxidation of the beans, all of which compromises our health when we drink it.

Some people love coffee, but they've had to give it up because it bothers their stomachs or gives them the jitters. Indigestion, acid reflux, and a general feeling of malaise around the gut are common complaints of regular coffee drinkers. As a result, coffee lovers either stop drinking coffee, drink less, or just suffer through.

If you’re looking to maximize the health benefits of a drink that you consume every day then be sure to choose an organic coffee that is tested for toxins. We only use Purity Coffee for this reason. Use code PUREJOY20 at checkout to get 20% off your order.
