How do you prepare this energizing beverage?

  • The first thing you need to do is pick up some rhodiola tea. If you buy it as tea bags, just add one tea bag to half a cup of hot water. If you buy loose rhodiola tea at a natural foods store, you should prepare your tea in a pot. Let it steep in half a cup of water at a low boil for 20 minutes.
  • Now prepare the oatmeal. If you use quick cooking oats, this will be much faster. Just add two tablespoons of this variety to half a cup of water and bring them to a boil. It’s simple. If you use regular oats, you’ll need to let them soak for two hours first.
  • Then add the rhodiola tea and oatmeal to the blender. Process them until they’re well-mixed. You’ll see that your beverage soon acquires a nice, creamy smell.
  • Put this mixture through a sieve to remove any remaining solids, and then pour it in your favorite glass. You can add a few ice cubes if you like, or enjoy it at room temperature. It’s entirely up to your preference.
  • If you need to sweeten your smoothie, add two tablespoons of honey. Some people also enjoy sprinkling a little ground cinnamon on top. Regardless, you’ll notice that the flavor is mild and pleasant, it feels good when it hits your stomach, and it’s easy to digest. Adult and children alike will love it. It’s also a good option for people who have diabetes.

General recommendations

Drink your smoothie slowly and while sitting down. Enjoy your time to relax a little bit. You’ll notice how, after about half an hour, you’ll feel stronger and more relaxed, more energized. This remedy is suitable at any time of the day, but avoid drinking it more than once a day because too much rhodiola can be quite stimulating.
