Tips on where to find some great Biological Hot Drinks - JouwBox edition 10
Hi There..... Are you having a heatwave like we did last week?
Or maybe just like here in Belgium, the weather has turned completely and it is raining and even storming..... I suppose there is nothing better like a hot drink to warm you up again..... Maybe some tea or some hot cocoa perhaps 😍
It has been quite a while since I last had hot cocoa..... Why..... Because of my Gastric Bypass..... The last time I drank one I got dumping afterward..... Ah, You don't know what dumping is of course..... It happens when foods (especially sugars) move too quickly from the stomach to the first part of the small intestine..... That results in heavy cramps, feeling unwell, heavy sweating, feeling dizzy, and sometimes even vomiting..... Do you get my drift 😏
I can tell you there is nothing fun about dumping..... I really want to avoid having those..... So I was actually pretty happy that I received this Biological cacao powder from Mattison Healthstyle in my 'JouwBox'..... You will have to read my previous blog post to know more about it..... https://seadbeady.blogspot.com/2020/08/review-about-jouwbox-edition-10.html 😊
So what does their website say about this cocoa powder..... You can use it to make hot cocoa or ad it to something you are baking or maybe to a smoothie..... It is Biological and it contains no added sugar or sweeteners and is rich in Magnesium..... It's a Vegan product and also free of Allergens
Ah, now you are probably wondering..... Does it still taste good 😀
So I took some milk and added a bit of the powder and stirred it well..... Then I heated it in the microwave for a minute..... Depending on how cold your milk is of course..... I did seem to see some lumps when I took it out but they vanished after stirring again..... When I tasted it there seemed to be something missing..... So I added a small amount of honey to it..... And yes for sure it tasted great..... And no dumping afterward..... Oof what a relief..... And I am pretty sure it will work perfectly in baking processes too..... Especially for people that have to cut back on sugar 😋
Did you know that cocoa is also a powerful antioxidant..... They protect our bodies against free radicals..... Which is good for your health..... And did you also know that it makes you feel more positive and helps people get through stressful periods..... Don't feel bad that you didn't know..... Just grab a cup of cocoa 😁
But maybe you are more of a tea drinker..... Ok, no problem..... I have something for you too..... In my 'JouwBox' there was a packet of Biological Green tea with Ginger too..... I discovered green tea a few years ago and am a real fan of most flavors 😄
So what does their website say about this tea..... It's a warming green tea with spicy ginger..... The tea comes from Yên Bái, Vietnam and Sekem, Egypt..... Bring water to a boil and let it cool down to 80 ° C ..... Pour into your mug and put the teabag in it and let it rest for about 3 to 5 minutes..... Ingredients: green tea, ginger, lemongrass, licorice root, and lime
Ok let's give it a try..... See how it tastes 😋
I actually cheated a bit because I have no thermometer to measure up to 80 degrees..... I have a tea machine that has the perfect temperature for the perfect cup of tea..... I would be lying if I would say I got it right from the first time..... Leaving it rest for 5 minutes makes the tea too bitter for me but with 3 minutes it was just perfect..... And what makes it even better is a dash of lemon..... The only thing that's a hassle to me is to get the temperature right..... Otherwise, perfect for me..... The ginger taste is not too sharp and it gives me a warm glow afterward 😈
Oh yes..... Did you know that ginger has been used since ancient times to treat colds, fevers, and even digestive problems..... Haven't tried that out yet but it does make me feel all warm inside 😍
Hope you like my blog post.....Until next time.....Have a great day
