In herbal medicine, adaptogens are plants and herbs with healing superpowers that can help your body and mind adapt and cope with stress. Some of the best adaptogenic plants include Rhodiola, Ashwagandha, Reishi mushrooms, turmeric, Holy Basil, and the hemp plant.
Instead of adding adaptogens and collagen to fruit juices and smoothies, enjoy them in a cold cup of Sträva coffee and give your morning a complete makeover.
Check out these 5 wellness-forward iced coffee recipes that’ll transform your productivity, alertness, and energy levels.
COLLAGEN + CBD ICED COFFEE
Put the ingredients in a blender and pulse on high until everything is well incorporated and froth starts forming. Pour the coffee into ice-filled glasses and serve immediately.
Sträva tip: If you’re vegan or vegetarian, replace the collagen with plant-based collagen boosters that help stimulate collagen production in the body.
CBD-INFUSED ICED MOCHA
Combine the milk, sweetener, vanilla, and cocoa and let it chill in the fridge. Fill two glasses with ice and pour the coffee and milk. Stir to combine and serve immediately.
Sträva tip: Sträva has four different CBD-infused coffee roasts containing different amounts of CBD. You can choose between 30, 60, 120, and 240 mg of full-spectrum CBD per 12oz bag.
MUSHROOM ICED COFFEE
Combine the ingredients in a blender on high speed. Pour into ice-filled glasses and serve immediately.
Sträva tip: If you don’t have a blender, use a regular hand mixer to combine the ingredients (minus the ice).
CACAO MACA ICED COFFEE
In a small pot, heat the milk on medium and add the Maca, cocoa, sweetener, and vanilla. Whisk to incorporate and heat until warm, but not boiling. Remove from heat and let it cool. Transfer the milk in an airtight container and put it in the fridge to chill.
Once the milk is cold, fill two glasses with ice, pour the milk and add the coffee. Stir to combine and serve immediately.
Sträva tip: Maca root is a powerful herb with strong adaptogenic properties. It may help boost your libido, improve your mood, and increase energy. Use it for better mental clarity and physical endurance.
TURMERIC ICED LATTE
In a small pot, heat the milk on medium heat and add the turmeric powder, pepper, vanilla, and sweetener. Bring to a boil and remove from heat. Let it cool to room temperature and refrigerate to cool.
Once the milk is chilled, fill two glasses with ice and pour the coffee. Add the milk and stir to combine. Serve immediately.
Sträva tip: Make this coffee even healthier by adding grass-fed butter or ghee into the milk. If you want a creamier beverage, put everything in a blender and pulse on high until froth starts forming.
