GOJI BERRY BEAUTY TONIC



Contributor: Rocio Graves
This creamy, antioxidant rich beauty and heart nourishing tonic created by slow food Chef and Photographer Rocio Graves is an absolutely dreamy way to begin the day. Rocio follows her intuition in the kitchen - and alchemizes with a beautiful blend of superfoods and adapgogens -Pine Pollen,  Pearl, Tocos, Ashwagandha - all added to hemp seeds, goji berries, grass-fed ghee in a tulsi rose tea base ....... divine!

 Rocío's Inspiration

It was 6:45 am and I had just opened my eyes… still in that in-between dream state, I started to create this tonic in my mind. It started with wanting to make something with goji berries for breakfast… then I thought: ‘how pretty would a goji berry tonic look?!’ 

I went downstairs to the kitchen and allowed my intuition to guide me… I chose my favourite rose tulsi tea as a base, which fees so nourishing to the heart and is anti-inflammatory. As the tea was steeping I reached out for the herbs… Pine Pollen (supports hormonal balance, enhances metabolism, supports liver in detoxifying, etc), Pearl (known to support one’s inner and outer radiance — great for even and clear skin and for collagen production) and Ashwaganda (such a healing herb, known for its stress reduction effects). 

When the rose tulsi tea was ready I poured it into the blender with the goji berries (known for being very high in antioxidants and a beauty food) and the herbs. I then added tocos, ghee and hemp seeds for a good dose of healthy fats and to make the tonic super creamy. For sweetener, I used raw honey and a pinch of salt to balance out the flavors. 

The result is this bright orange, creamy delicious, and deeply nourishing tonic.
