As I write this, we are in day 5 of Hanukkah.
This is our family’s second observance of this Jewish holiday, but we are not Jewish. If you wan to know more about why we observe biblical feasts you can find that here, and here is a book we find very helpful in explaining the how and why.
Two days ago I was thinking about supplements that I wanted to use more of to support my body, and specifically to help enrich my milk supply while I am exclusively breast feeding our 7th child.
Both have many benefits, and I enjoy the flavors, but could they go together?
It was worth a shot!
My husband, though skeptical of some of the things I ask him to try, actually tried my science experiment and really loved it!
It was a miracle, he drank the equivalent of half a beet and didn’t know it!
If you know anything about Hanukkah, then you know the Maccabees were the people who are the heroes in the story, and the ingredients in this drink…I just couldn’t help myself but to make it a play on words!
1 1/2 Cups Boiling Water (optional: steep this with a Raspberry Zinger tea bag before blending)
1/4-1/2 teaspoon Beet Root Powder(start small and work up)
1 teaspoon Maca Powder
1/4 teaspoon Sunflower Lecithin
2 teaspoons gelatin powder
Add all Ingredients to your blender, and blend until slightly frothy. If you want a frothier product, add 1 teaspoon Whey protein or Egg White protein powder while the blender is running as the egg white powder will scramble if added to hot things without it running (ask me how I know).
This drink is a Fuel Pull on the Trim Healthy Mama plan so I can enjoy it more often, dairy free compatible (omitting the whey powder if you are using it for creaminess), and obviously gluten free to make it compatible with our family’s needs.
