With the weather warming up here in BC, cooler things are becoming so much more desirable.
Hot showers can be replaced with cool (ok, warm) showers. Hot breakfasts can be replaced by cold ones like smoothies. Soup with salads.
And hot elixirs with iced ones!
Over at Honest Elixirs Headquarters (aka my house) I’ve been experimenting with how to prepare our Superfood Drink Blends iced and I’m so pleased to say that it’s just as easy and delicious as making them hot.
I’ve been loving all three of our flavours iced - the Golden Mylk Latte makes a great afternoon drink, the Salted Hot Chocolate with iced coffee, a bit of maple syrup and vanilla added in is an unreal treat, and the Coconut Creamer with iced coffee gives you an amazing start to your day.
If sipping an iced beverage in the backyard sounds like something you’re into, or if you just prefer a cold drink to energize and sustain you in the morning when the weather is hot, see the simple instructions below!
2 tablespoons Honest Elixirs Superfood Drink Blend in your flavour of choice
¼ cup hot water
1 cup cold water or iced coffee or tea
Handful of ice cubes
Sweetener (optional) such as honey, maple syrup, monk fruit, or stevia
½ tsp vanilla extract (optional)
In a jar or mug, combine the Superfood Drink Blend with the hot water. Stir until dissolved. If you are using a sweetener, add that in now as well. Top with cold water, iced coffee, or tea and add ice cubes. Shake or stir well until combined. A splash of vanilla extract is delicious with our coconut creamer and iced coffee!
