Okay, let me first say that I didn't even realize how sales-y this post would look when I made the recipe. I legitimately just use these products all the time and concocted this recipe to help me relax in the evenings. Yes, there are a few affiliate links in here, but I promise it was not intended to be that way at all!
That being said, this recipe has been tested with a few different tweaks and I think this is the best one. The benefits of collagen are numerous to our gut, hair, skin, and joint health. The vanilla flavor of these specific peptides helps bring out the sweetness in the reishi mix. Some fat before bed helps to balance hormones and hunger levels. And reishi is a strain of mushroom that has been coming up a lot this year as beneficial for relaxation.
A happy gut, hormone and hunger balance, and relaxation? Yeah. Sounds like a bedtime elixir if I've ever heard of one. ;)
Dial-it-down Bedtime Elixir
Prep time: 3 minutes
Yield: 1 serving
- Heat the water using the method of your choice (microwave, stove)
