Super Power Adaptogen Powder Balls

January 10, 2019

Super foodsAuthor: Lily Mazzarella
These tasty herbal treats are perfect mid-morning and early afternoon pick-me-ups—the times you might be crashing/craving/irritable and reaching for something sweet and caffeinated. Full of healthy fats, fiber, protein and herbal adaptogens, these superfood balls will keep you fueled without the down slope on the other side. They actually contribute to your system—which is what good food and herbs should do. Eat 1-2 per day.


8 ounces (1 cup) almond butter, and/or another nut/seed butter

½ cup Super Power Adaptogen Powder (plain ashwagandha and/or maca powders can be used)
2 tbsp raw local honey or molasses (or to taste)
4 dates, pits removed
1 tsp organic cinnamon
1/8 tsp organic ground nutmeg
½ tsp organic dried ginger or 1 tsp grated fresh ginger
½ tsp vanilla

Blend all ingredients in a food processor, adjusting ratios to form a thick, but workable paste. Roll into balls, roll balls in cinnamon or powdered herb of choice. Store in a closed container in the refrigerator or freezer.

* You can riff on the recipe endlessly, and easily double the recipe, as these store well. One of my favorite versions ups the adaptogen ante and features dried goji berries that have been soaked in Tulsi Rose Tea (a delicious Holy Basil tea—another adaptogen—by Organic India) instead of dates. These balls can be made with raw organic cacao, carob, or turmeric.

* For a sugar-free version, omit dates and honey/molasses, increase the vanilla, and consider a couple of drops of organic liquid stevia.

(Herbs are fun, and can make you feel very, very good)

Got Sick - Respiratory Specific
Catherine - San Francisco
Extra-Level Respiratory Support

Nourishing Lung tincture has been our go-to during the now-annual fire season, reducing the impacts of smoke & polluted air, and for providing overall respiratory support.
Got Sick-Respiratory Specific is a great addition for the onset of URIs and other respiratory distress, as it seems to act rapidly and deeply. It's also very effective in combination with Nourishing Lung. My husband was developing a URI following surgery, and before calling the Dr for antibiotics, he opted to try using both tinctures, together with Got Sick regular formula. Significant improvement occurred within 12 hours and he was able to clear it without medication. Highest recommendation.

Thank you for letting us know how these worked for you!

Helps some when eating dairy or gluten on a occasional basis. Have purchased several bottles over the past few years.

Life saver!

Recommended to me by 2 Naturopaths. this product has helped me out of SIBO issues and also maintained my body's natural gastric process.
Whenever I have a flare up of digestive problems, this product, in combination with garlic and probiotics has helped me restore things without the torment of antibiotics, which destroy your gut lining. I highly recommend staying on an assigned regiment of Candibactin BR for a cure.
