Energizing Superfood Elixir

My weekend was great.  We had a super-relaxing weekend, and also spent a lot of time organizing and cleaning our space.  Yesterday afternoon, we finally made it out to swim in the river again!  It was so refreshing and relaxing to do on a lazy Sunday.  It also made me realize that I need to have more faith that things will always work out as they should.  No matter how many times the universe tries to teach me this lesson, I still haven’t learned (yet!)

I think maybe it was having such intimate contact with the Earth yesterday, but I woke up this morning feeling super groggy.  I didn’t really want to have coffee, so I made this drink that I also had on Saturday afternoon when I felt my energy flagging a bit.  I don’t want to call it a coffee substitute, as it is what it is in its own right, but it does share a similar flavor profile.  Whatever you want to think of it as, give it a try when you need a pick-me-up!
