Adrenal and Immune Boosting Elixir

By Ritamarie Loscalzo


Functional foods with powerful phytonutrients and supportive adaptogens don’t  need to come on a plate. This tasty and nutritious elixir is packed with both!

Nuts and seeds provide minerals and valuable omega-3s while adaptogenic mushroom powders support the immune system, help adrenal fatigue, and fight inflammation. The antioxidant properties of astragalus along with the blood sugar regulating abilities of ashwagandha may help with metabolic dysregulation. Add maca to aid hormone balance. Top it off with the healthy fats found in coconut and you have a delicious and nutritious almost-meal in a glass.

Notes: Use a tea or nut milk of your choice. Ingredients can be substituted to customize for your specific health needs. (A great resource for mushroom powders is Mountain Rose Herbs)
