Elissa’s Inner Peace Tonic

Elissa Goodman

Gynostemma is a long-revered longevity tea from Japan, similar to ginseng. Combined with adaptogenic herbs, almond milk, and a date for some sweetness, it tastes fantastic and is especially soothing right before bed.

Serves 1

1 cup brewed Dragon Herbs gynostemma tea, hot

⅓ cup fresh almond milk or coconut milk (or both combined)

1 medjool date, pitted and peeled

2 teaspoons Sun Potion Yin Herbs (reishi, pearl powder, tocos powder, ashwaganda)

1 teaspoon cacao

⅛ teaspoon cinnamon

3 to 4 drops stevia sweetener (optional)

1. Brew gynostemma tea and set aside to cool for 2 minutes.

2. Next, add all ingredients to a blender, and mix until warm and frothy.

3. Pour and drink slowly. Enjoy the cup of inner peace.
