Everyday Adaptogenic Herbal Coffee LatteOriginally published on March, 28th 2019. Last updated on October 8th, 2019 Skip to Recipe
Everyday Adaptogenic Herbal Coffee Latte is creamy, frothy, and delicious. The best part is it is filled with adaptogens. What are adaptogens you ask? They are herbs that help your body deal with stress levels, gut health, adrenals and so on. If you have been following me for the last month you know that I’ve been very into RASA Herbal Coffee Blends. Why am I so obsessed? Well to put it simply is they have 3 different blends, one Cacao Koffee blend, Original Koffee blend, and Dirty Coffee blend. The first two blends are completely caffeine free, the Dirty blend has a bit of organic, fair trade coffee mixed in.
Which blend to use for this recipe? I’ll leave that up to you. I personally buy all three of the flavors in their bundle and pick between blends depending on how I feel on the day. The Cacao blend I will grab for if I am craving hot chocolate with a little energy buzz, the RASA Original Herbal Koffee blend, I grab most days as I don’t need a lot of caffeine. The Dirty Coffee blend, I drink only as when I need the extra energy boost. The Dirty Coffee blend, honestly has changed my life, and perspective of coffee altogether. Since the Dirty Coffee blend has Coffee mixed with adaptogens, it is a miracle that I can drink it. As all of my life, I have been too sensitive to enjoy coffee, I would end up with heart palpations, anxiety, and major depression.
Somedays I will even put a half tablespoon of the coffee blend and half of the original coffee blend, you can mix any of them. Or just stick with one, whichever is your style.
Everyday Adaptogenic Herbal Coffee Latte Benefits
Another thing that I love about RASA is that I don’t have to think about which herbs or adaptogens I am out of. I don’t have to travel or carry around all of my jars with me. It’s all in one, and so easy to use. Which is especially important when it comes to adaptogens as it is crucial that you have an everyday relationship with them. Meaning make sure you take the same ones daily in order to see any effects, on your energy, stress, health, and wellness.
