Autumn Spiced Trimmy (FP)

This is an extra-large, frothy fall latté with all the goodness of chamomile and festive spices that dance over your taste buds like a kaleidoscope of falling leaves. Add it to any meal or snack to give you more filling factor without piling on needless calories.

Did you know chamomile tea is not just for calming tummies and fighting anxiety? It may be one of the most potent cancer fighters God made, especially for thyroid and breast cancers. A recent study published in the Journal of the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology showed that extracts of chamomile cause significant reductions in human cancer cells, without adversely affecting normal healthy cells. We’ve been doing a lot of research into chamomile lately and this humble herb is blowing our minds! If you drink between two and six cups a week, your risk of thyroid cancer can plunge by 70 percent, according to a study in the European Journal of Public Health. The more you drink it, the lower your cancer risk.

The Pristine Whey Protein powder used in this recipe makes a wonderful creamy froth on top. If you have the whey protein, you don’t really need the sunflower lecithin... so don’t fret if you don’t have all the ingredients listed. If you have all three… whey protein, collagen, and sunflower lecithin… feel free to add them all and it will be all the more creamy and delicious. If you don’t have any whey protein powder on hand, you can use sunflower lecithin and collagen for a creamy, but less frothy drink – great for dairy-free Mamas.

You’ll notice this is the “Light-version” of a Trimmy. We are making it light because as you enter into the “eating season”, you will likely be having some richer foods and this brings balance. Feel free to make it a “Rich-version” by adding a full 2 to 3 teaspoons of oil versus the 1 that we call for here. We call for a doonk in some of our measurements... a doonk equals 1/32 of a teaspoon.

Serving Size: Single-serve

Ingredients:
1 chamomile tea bag
2 cups boiling water
2 tsp THM Gentle Sweet or 1 tsp THM Super Sweet Blend (might want a bit more, if you don’t have Stevia)

2 pinches mineral salt
6-8 doonks pumpkin pie spice
1 doonk sunflower lecithin (optional, but not as necessary if using whey protein powder)

1 tsp MCT oil or 1/2 tsp coconut oil
1 rounded tsp Pristine Whey Protein Powder

autumn-spiced-trimmy-2Instructions:
1. Place tea bag in 2 cups of boiling water and allow to brew for a two or three minutes. (It is preferable to brew in an insulated coffee mug or a mug topped with a lid so the tea does not get too cool.)

2. Add all other ingredients to the blender, except for the whey protein powder.

3. Pour the tea into the blender and whiz on low... add your tsp of whey protein powder and then let it all whiz a little longer.

4. Pour into a mug and enjoy!

Recipe Notes:
For those who cannot tolerate whey protein powder, or who may not like their Trimmy so frothy, just leave out the whey. If you omit the whey protein powder, the collagen and sunflower lecithin will be necessary, not optional. You will also have to adjust the sweetness by pulling back just a little. You might want to take out 1 doonk of the pumpkin pie spice, too. (This is due to the fact that the whey covers up flavors and so you’ll need less of the aforementioned ingredients when not using it.)
