Burdock – Shilajit Latte

November 14, 2010

Burdock-Shilajit Latte:

This is one of my favorite recipes in my new book!

Shilajit Latte

Burdock root tea is a powerful anti-inflammatory herbal tea. A mildly bitter herb, it also stimulates the release of gastric juices and aids digestion. Read more about Burdock root tea here.

Shilajit is considered the king herb of Ayurveda, the traditional Indian system of medicine. Shilajit contains at least 85 minerals in ionic form. Shilajit is a Sanskrit word meaning “conqueror of mountains and destroyer of weakness.” It is a mineral-rich humus (soil) that emanates from the crevices of the Himalayan mountains. Shilajit is truly a remarkable substance with a long history of human usage for healing, building, and rejuvenation. (Read more about Shiljit here)

Combine burdock tea and shilajit powder with these other ingredients to take the place of your morning coffee.

1 cup brewed burdock root

1 cup almond milk

1 teaspoon shilajit powder

1 tablespoon agave nectar

Combine all ingredients in a vitamix or blender until frothy and warm from blending. Sprinkle with a little cinnamon if desired.

This recipe is from Alissa’s new book Raw Food for Everyone.
