When we went to Santa Monica and Malibu last summer, I was so excited to check out Euphoria Loves Rawvolution. Well, we enjoyed it so much that we went SEVERAL times while we were there. And each time, I just could not help but to order this drink on their menu called Spring Shake or something of the sort. I loved it so much that I asked how they made it…and it turns out it was a special mix from a phenomenal Chinese herbalist, Rehmannia. After we left there, I just couldn’t stop thinking about that drink! When I drank it…I felt amazing…like I had a natural high.
Fast forward to now. I’m still thinking about that drink. So I racked my brain and all I could remember was “Shaman Shack”. Thankfully we have this wonderful thing called Google and I was able to track it down. And so…my fellow Happy Foodies…I bring you: MORNING JING!! Wooooooooo!! (That’s how I feel after I drink it).
Here is what the Rehmannia says about it on his site:
This product will revolutionize the protein powder market. It is a soy and dairy free great tasting, energizing, and restorative combination of nutritional powders. Morning Jing is a surprisingly tasty quick meal for any time of day. Black bean and black rice together are considered a complete protein- and you don’t get the saturated fat or hormones. Black sesame provides valuable omega 6 essential fatty acids. Ho Sho Wu is a famed longevity herb in China, its name literally means ‘old black hair’ as the herb is tonic to the Kidneys, and has been reported to reverse graying hair and other signs of ageing. The above mentioned foods are all considered ‘black foods’ which contain unique anti-ageing properties such as zinc and molybdenum (a rare antioxidant).
But that’s not all; we add Maca, a great superfood from the Incas which is said to fortify the reproductive potential in men and women, balance hormones and provide endurance and adaptability.
Bee Pollen is considered one of Earth’s greatest superfoods, containing every nutrient necessary for survival, and finally we sweeten Morning Jing with pure cactus honey powder. Great for the whole family!
So, of course…I ordered some so I could enjoy it at home! My favorite way to prepare it is to blend it up in my Vita-Mix … fresh almond milk (chilled) and a big spoonful of raw almond butter and honey. I like it a little on the thicker side, so I add more almond butter and less milk. I started off with just a tablespoon of the Jing, and I may even put a little less next time.
Order your own yumminess here.
Just a little warning/disclaimer: Please check with your herbalist/doctor/midwife/naturopath before drinking. There are some quite potent herbs included in this tonic, including some that could cause an allergic reaction (bee pollen). Use in moderation…chinese herbs affect everyone differently.
Oh, and another disclaimer: Maca has been known to increase your libido/sex drive (due to it’s hormonal balancing characteristics). Don’t say I didn’t warn you. 😉
