Ginger Turmeric Tea

There's this cute little vegan bakery in Hampden just NE of Baltimore called Harmony Bakery. I went there with a friend recently and enjoyed their ginger turmeric tea, so I decided to try and make some for myself once I got home. It turned out pretty spot on!

Boil a kettle's worth of water.

Cut about 1/4 to 1/2 cup of fresh ginger root (you don't have to cut the outer skin off as long as the insides of the ginger root are exposed) and add to the water once it's hot enough, along with about a tbsp of turmeric. I also added in a tbsp or two of honey as well. 

Let it all steep together for a while. I let it steep for most of the day. Mostly because I'd forgotten about it but also to give the flavors time to really meld together.

Strain the ginger root, and then pour your tea once it's room temp into a pitcher to enjoy!

Hormone-Balancing Hot Chocolate

This recipe came from a girl I follow on Instagram, @jasminehull and once I tried it, I fell completely in love! Tweak it as you want to and let me know what recipes you create with these powders!

Ingredients:
1 1/2 to 2 cups of nut milk (almond, cashew, coconut)
1 tbsp maca powder
1 tbsp ashwagandha powder
1 tbsp raw cacao powder
1 tbsp coconut butter
1 tbsp honey (or maple syrup, apple honey, date nectar)
or 1 raw pitted date to sweeten works too and gives an earthy quality

Heat milk on the stove and add to mixer/blender (I use a nutribullet). Add all other ingredients in using measurements of your choice... I sort of eye-ball it but it's about a tbsp of each. Blend and enjoy in your favorite mug!
