One of the best parts about Honest Elixirs Superfood Drink Blends is the creamy foam that you get when they are added to your drinks.
But it takes more than just a quick stir to get the perfect cup!
Our Superfood Drink Blends are oil based, (both MCT oil and the naturally occurring whole coconut oil from coconut butter), and you most likely know that oil and water don't mix... easily, that is.
In order to get the perfect, creamy elixir, there are a variety of simple methods that you can use to combine our Superfood Drink Blends with your coffee, tea, or hot water. Below we've outlined a few of our tried and true methods.
1. The Blender Method
This is probably our favourite way to get lots of super creamy, smooth foam, and is great for mornings or afternoons (or any times) at home.
To make your elixir in your blender, simply add 2 tablespoons of our Superfood Drink Blends to your blender jug along with 1 cup of hot coffee, tea, or water. Add your favourite sweetener, if desired, and blend, starting on low and moving to medium speed for 15-30 seconds.
Pour and drink immediately. This is best done in a blender that allows steam to escape, rather than a tightly sealing blender cup, which can allow pressure to build and runs the risk of explosion with hot liquids!
2. To-go Mug Method
When you're on the go, and want to take your elixir with you, this is the perfect way to enjoy our Superfood Drink Blends!
To use this method, simply add 2 tablespoons of our Superfood Drink Blends to a tightly sealing to-go mug, along with 1 cup of hot coffee, tea, or water. Add your favourite sweetener, if desired, seal it up, and give it a good shake for 10-20 seconds.
That's it! Because our Superfood Drink Blends provide lots of brain-healthy fats, as well as easy-to-digest protein from grass-fed collagen, they make a great option for mornings when you might not have time to eat a full breakfast, or if you prefer to wait a couple hours before eating your first meal.
One of our elixirs, shaken in your to-go mug, is a great, quick solution to busy mornings. They can provide satiety and energy for the first part of your day, until you're ready for your full meal.
3. Electric Whisk Method
If you're at home and want to enjoy your elixir without the hassle of cleaning your blender afterwards, an electric whisk can be a quick solution. They can be purchased for around $10 at most kitchen supply shops.
To use, add 2 tablespoons of our Superfood Drink Blends to a mug along with a bit of your favourite sweetener, if desired, then fill your mug about 1/3 of the way with hot coffee, water or tea. If you fill your mug completely, it's likely to splash out once you use the whisk.
Use the electric whisk to blend for about 15 seconds, or until your drink is smooth and foamy. Top up with more hot liquid and enjoy!
4. Nespresso Milk Frother Method
If you happen to own a nifty Nespresso Milk Frother, you can use it to create a great elixir with our Superfood Drink Blends!
To use this method, add 2 tablespoons of our Superfood Drink Blends to the frother, along with a bit of your favourite sweetener, if desired. Fill to the max line with hot water, tea, or coffee. Let it sit for a few seconds to allow the drink blend to soften, then turn on to the cold setting, and let the frother do its thing.
Pour and serve immediately.
