Tea with Goji Berries, Coconut Oil, and Raw Honey

Posted by: Angela Leeds In: Drinks

 

This is a delicious, energizing, soothing, and warming tea… and fun to eat because of the plump squishy Goji Berries that float to the surface!

All three of these ingredients are energizing in their own way. Get a polysaccharide rush from the Goji Berries and the Honey, and feel your inner heat RISE with the metabolic-warming power of the raw Coconut Oil. The Chinese believed that Goji was the key to long life, so if you add Royal Jelly instead of the honey, this might genuinely be the key to longevity if taken every day!

If you’re trying to lose weight, both the Goji Berries and the Coconut Oil can help!

  1. Goji Berry is a complete protein and so rich in nutrients, those two facts combined must be why it’s well-reputed to be an appetite suppresant.
  2. Raw Coconut Oil is known to stimulate the thyroid and metabolism.

A few additional facts about Coconut Oil, in case you missed that news feed:

Although it is a fat, the lauric acid in Coconut Oil is a medium-chain fatty acid, which your body can utilize more directly as energy (like a carb) as compared with other fats. Coconut is the most stable, slowest-oxidizing of the fats. And your body uses the lauric acide to produce monolaurin, which is a known anti-viral. Thatsalotta health benefits in one cuppa tea…!

Tea with Goji Berries, Coconut Oil, and Raw Honey

  • Heaping tablespoon of Goji Berries
  • 1 tablespoon raw Coconut Oil
  • 1 tablespoon raw Honey (or Royal Jelly)

Put ingredients in a cup and pour warm water over. Stir and sip. Doesn’t take long at all for the Goji Berries to plump up!
