THE DAILY SUPER BREW

THE DAILY SUPER BREW

THE DAILY SUPER BREW

This is the daily brew that is made most mornings for breakfast here at Pure Feast headquarters. It’s full of fat, fiber, protein, adaptogens, and an amazing array of antioxidants all rounded out with a gentle lift of caffeine from the matcha. This drink gets the body moving and the brain pumping, making it a fabulous way to begin your day.

The body loves a good dose of fat and protein in the morning to help keep hormones balanced and appetite in check throughout the day, and we’ve blended these macronutrients with a nice selection of other immune boosting and energy enhancing ingredients to get the morning off to a great start.

Here’s a quick hit of facts about why this drink is so great:

  • We use both Bulletproof Brain Octane and ghee for fat in this drink, as the Brain Octane is full of caprylic acid which is one of the brain’s favourite sources of fuel and is metabolized by your body into energy quickly.
  • Our source of protein comes from Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides, one scoop provides 10 grams of protein. In addition to keeping us feeling full, this collagen is one of nature’s anti-aging gems keeping our joints, hair, skin and nails strong and beautiful.
  • The hemp seeds provide some plant-based protein, as well as fiber.
  • The Giddy Yoyo Cacao and cinnamon both provide a large amount of delicious antioxidants to help protect the body against free radical damage in the cells as well as help to reduce inflammation.
  • The Sun Potion Cordyceps is the secret ingredient in this elixir that provides us with a steady stream of energy throughout the morning. It is an adaptogen that helps our body deal with whatever physical or mental stress that may come our way.
  • The matcha also provides a good dose of antioxidants and is a nice gentle source of caffeine that won’t leave us feeling gittery after drinking.

This crisp recipe is easy; it's quick to put together and can be made in advance. It’s sweetened slightly with low-glycemic coconut sugar and has cassava flour in the crumble mix, along with a few other of my favourite grain-free flours like almond and tapioca.
