When we discovered Rebbl’s coconut-milk elixirs were infused with super herbs, we were instantly impressed. Rebbl is an organic, ethically sourced coconut-milk based elixir and protein company. Their drinks are soulfully crafted with organic and fair-trade ingredients, which help people achieve an optimum state of wellness. We also love the fact that the company was born out of a passion to prevent exploitation of the Peruvian Amazon, and a percentage of all sales are donated to Not For Sale, an international non-profit organization working to prevent exploitation and human trafficking. An amazing product with an amazing mission.
Moreover, these adaptogen super herbs that Rebbl uses are all the rage these days. They are in juices, smoothies, beauty products and now infused in elixirs and protein drinks sold at your local health food store. So, what are they and what do they do?
Basically, they are the best of the best roots and plants that provide traditional healing modalities. They are believed to be body-system modulators and promoters of homeostasis (biological balance). AKA they fill in the gaps that help your body operate at the highest efficiency – addressing the stresses of modern life such as anxiety, stress, and fatigue. They have been used in Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine for centuries, and when sourced properly, they are safe for the body. The adaptogen super herbs found in Rebbl drinks are: ashwagandha, reishi, maca, turmeric, and matcha, and if you are curious to learn more about each, check out the glossary below!
**Please consult with your doctor before trying them out if you are pregnant, breastfeeding or have any health concerns.
So, you can imagine that when we discovered these delicious elixirs packed with healing properties, we couldn’t wait to take them into the kitchen! We love the fact that you can pick these up on the go, but what about those times when you have someone stopping by to say “hello” and you’ve forgotten to pick up fresh coffee, or just can’t be bothered to make it to the cafe? We’re big fans of elixirs, and coconuts, so we’ve come up with a super simple, but ultra luxe-feeling elixir recipe featuring Rebbl’s Cold-Brew Maca Elixir.
Rebbl Maca Coconut-Mylk Elixir
The night before drinking, create coconut mylk ice cubes and chill the Rebbl Elixir. In the morning, pour the elixir and a tablespoon of coconut mylk in a glass, place the coconut ice cube in the drink, and finish with a sprinkle of coconut sugar. Serve to friends and loved ones, in a pretty glass, or your favorite ceramic piece! Our favorite’s are always from Milk + Clay.
