Molasses "Moon-Time" Latte

Blackstrap molasses, a high-antioxidant super food, has been used for generations as a home remedy and dietary supplement for heavy periods, cramping, bloating and other symptoms of pms.

Molasses is a super food that ironically is a “byproduct” of making white sugar! However, unlike sugar, blackstrap molasses is full of healthy goodness, especially during your moon-cycle: It is a good source of iron, which replenishes red blood cells, and magnesium, which promotes the healthy excretion of estrogen. It therefore reduces the risk of estrogen dominance, a common cause of heavy periods. Blackstrap molasses also contains vitamin B6, which helps the liver process excess hormones.

Mix a teaspoon of blackstrap molasses into a cup of water or add it to a cup of nut milk, smoothies, oatmeal, or give this healing recipe a try:

Kelly's Molasses "Moon-Time" Latte!

  • 12 oz coconut milk (or almond)

  • 1 T creamer of your choice

  • 1.5 T dandy blend (our favorite herbal coffee substitute )

  • 1 scant T blackstrap molasses

  • 1/8 tsp. cinnamon

In a small pot heat up the milk and other ingredients until nice and warm. Give it a bit of a stir to make sure the ingredients don’t stick to the bottom.
Once it gets all nice and warm, pop the mixture into a high speed blender and whip on high for a minute or until frothy.
Serve and enjoy!
