Yerba Mate Cacao and Mint Tonic

From pamelasalzman.com

Ingredients

1 Tbsp Argentinian Yerba Mate leaves, plus u00bd cup hot water

1/2 tsp sweetener + more to taste, I used date syrup

3/4 cup unsweetened milk of choice, I used almond milk

1/8 tsp peppermint extract

1 1/2 Tbsps cacao powder*

Optional adaptogens: 1/2 tsp maca, lucuma or ashwagandha (If you are new to using adaptogens, try one at a time at half the recommended dose) *

Instructions

1.
Steep the tea in a cup of the 1/2 cup hot water along with the sweetener. Let it steep for 5 minutes.
2.
While the tea is steeping, heat 3/4 cup almond milk in a pan or frother. *
3.
Pour the tea through a strainer into a blender (preferably one with a glass pitcher.) Add the extract, collagen, and any additional powders you desire. Blend at high speed for a minute until all the powders are dissolved. Pour into a mug and top with the warmed milk.
4.
Add a sprinkle of cacao powder on top!

Notes:
If you're sensitive to cacao you can substitute it with carob powder.
If using a frother to heat your milk, pour the heated milk into the blender but leave the frothed milk to top on your tonic!
