THESE 5 COFFEE RECIPES WITH ADAPTOGENS WILL MAKE YOUR MORNINGS HEALTHIER AND HAPPIER

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.

  • Ice cubes

Instructions:

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.
