If you’re doing one of our DIY cleanses, this warm tonic that serves as substitute for coffee is fair game + just as satisfying!
For those of you new to ho shu wu, one of the tonic’s superfood ingredients, the name for this gentle, tonic herb directly translates to “Mr. He’s Black Hair.” The rejuvenative plant has been historically used to restore hair color, strengthen nails, and increase blood health. In addition to reducing hypertension and blood cholesterol, ho shu wu also supports the kidney and liver, making it useful for boosting blood circulation and treating dizzy spells, blurred vision, and backaches.
You can add the herb, which has a sweet, bitter taste, to a warm cup of coconut milk and mix with Cacao Magic, tocos (rice bran solubles, which have a creamy vanilla flavor), reishi powder, Coconut Magic, cinnamon, and Cacao Bee Honey for a powerhouse drink that will ramp up your immune system and lift your energy levels.
- 4 ounces hot coconut milk
- 1 tablespoons Cacao Magic Superfood + Protein Blend
- 1 tablespoon Sun Potion tocos
- 1 tablespoon Coconut Magic Coconut Butter
- 1 teaspoon Sun Potion reishi powder
- 1 teaspoon Sun Potion ho shu wu
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon Cacao Bee Honey
Blend all until smooth in blender + serve warm.
