This is another one of those recipes that just “happens.”  And with incredibly great timing, given that most of the United States is experiencing some very COLD temperatures!

It’s what I like to think of as a super-powered beverage, with protein powder giving it an added punch.  With a little bit of healthy fat, it’s just about a meal by itself.  A little 70% (or higher) chocolate, and voila!

TIP:  Equal Exchange has some great chocolate options.

Plus, thanks to an electric kettle, it doesn’t take that long to heat the water.

Hmm, sounds almost too good to be true, yeah?

Super easy and super tasty.

Superfood Elixir











2 1/2 cups HOT water (boiling or not)

1 packet of flavored protein powder — so far, chocolate, vanilla and coffee have worked superbly

1 tsp maca powder

1/2 tsp mesquite powder (optional)

1 tsp chaga powder

1-2 Tbsp cacao powder

2 Tbsp coconut oil

Stevia (optional – I find the protein powder is sweet enough)


Heat water.  Add everything to a high-speed blender and blend on high for about 15-20 seconds.

Pour and savor on a cold day, while you watch the snow fall or the birds come to the feeders….

    Sounds delicious and similar to one of David Wolfe’s elixirs.

      Yes, doesn’t he have similar beverages using the “Immortal Machine” product he recommends? I think it was developed by a friend of his, maybe. We just know this one is tasty, and doubly good on a cold day.
