I’m aware that for most people post St. Paddy’s means hangover… for me it usually means that I ate too much guinness cake… but in actuality I was testing out a recipe yesterday and just didn’t get enough sleep. 🤷🏻♀️
I thought I would post one of my favorite milk kefir drinks, which also happens to be green for this lovely day. 🤗
If we were still in N. Ireland there would be a parade today, complete with floats, in the town. Downpatrick is where St. Patrick set up his church and it was one of the lovely attractions in town when we lived there.
But here today we have sunshine and no hangovers, with the exception of a food hangover! So it’s nice to settle the stomach with a fun matcha mint yogurt drink! And this yogurt just happens to be super yogurt… the kind with lacto-bacteria that sticks in your intestines and effects your gut for the better. That might be weird to hear for some, but it’s a good thing.
I love putting matcha and lion’s mane in my milk kefir because it is a triple whammy of brain juice loaded with probiotics that affect neurotransmitters, loads of L-theanine, which is calming against the caffiene load, and lion’s mane which is a nootropic brain boosting mushroom.
1 cup milk kefir
1 tsp Japanese matcha
1/2 tsp lions mane powder (optional, but I mix mine up with the matcha)
half a dropper of peppermint spirits or a few drops of peppermint oil
1 drop liquid stevia (optional, but recommended if you don’t love the taste of matcha)
Combine all ingredients in a glass and stir… or in a mason jar, lid it and shake vigorously. Enjoy!
