This recipe is an adaptation of the Winter Wonderland recipe found here. I didn’t have the ingredients necessary for the recipe as it was written, so I determined to make my own version. This is what I came up with, and let me tell you, it is delicious!
1 cup oolong tea (you can use peppermint tea or really any tea that you have)
1/2 scoop of high quality whey protein powder
1 tsp. MCT oil
1 tsp. grass-fed butter
1 tsp. grass-fed gelatin
Stevia to taste
1/2 tsp. of vanilla extract
1 drop doTERRA peppermint oil
Mix all of the ingredients together in a blender and enjoy! I love to drink this hot with a dollop of whipped cream!
*Peppermint oil is wonderful not only for digestion, but it is also used for mental alertness. It is uplifting, invigorating and soothing at the same time! Combine these attributes with the health benefits of grassfed butter and gelatin, and you’ve got a drink that packs a nutritional punch!
**I buy my whey protein powder, MCT oil and gelatin (among other things) from Vitacost. This link will get you $10 off your order of $30 or more and shipping is super fast! https://www.vitacostrewards.com/kbJxS1Q (This is my referral link as well…you get $10 off and so do I when you order. The savings on my orders helps to offset the costs of this blog.)
***I do not recommend ingesting any essential oil other than doTERRA oils. When using essential oils, you want to be sure of the quality and ingredients in the oil. On one side, you could call me biased because I am a doTERRA Wellness Advocate, but the truth behind it is that I CHOSE doTERRA because of their commitment to quality! If you would like to learn more about doTERRA essential oils and how to incorporate them into your life, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would be happy to give you a free wellness consultation and send you a free sample!
