Brock uses green tea which also has the benefit of containing theanine, an amino acid which increases your focus but also has a calming effect, stuff snipers would love.
I let Brock take over from here (all ingredients available on iHerb)
My current recipe for my morning concoction is:
Tea and Mint blend - I make a 16 oz pot in the french press I was using for coffee
While the tea is brewing, put the following in a blender:
1/2 tsp Vanilla Powder
2 tsp Xylitol
2 tbsp MCT oil
2 egg yolks
1.5 tsp ground tumeric
3/4 tsp ground ginger
3/4 tsp cinnamon
Once the tea is done brewing, pour about 1/3 of it in the blender and blend for about 20 seconds until everything is incorporated.
Add: 2-3 tbsp collagen hydrolysate, and then pour in the rest of the tea. Blend again to make sure thoroughly mixed and collagen fully dissolved.
You get a yellowish, opaque beverage with a bit of froth and a creamy texture from the egg yolks. The turmeric drives the color, the flavor is generally mild, so you taste the peppermint of the tea and undertones of ginger.
If you don’t like xylitol as a sweetener, you can try something else preferred, or you can try it without, but it ends up a bit bitter without something sweet to cut the turmeric and ginger flavors. Also, feel free to adjust the spices to taste based on experience.
Brock considers egg yolk to be the secret ingredient. And he's right. I was quite surprised how they smoothened out the catechins (the stuff that makes green tea tastes bitter) and bring out that vanilla flavour. Egg yolks are also rich in choline another brain and memory booster. Same goes for collagen hydrolysate which can make you more alert, improve concentration and energy, and balance your mood.
Thanks to Brock for this awesome concoction. Our sharp minds will be grateful.
