This Tulsi Tea Adaptogen Latte is a bright cup of frothy happy when you need a pick-me-up.
Adaptogen herbs are wonderful to incorporate into your daily diet. They support your adrenal system and help balance your hormones, so you can manage your stress response on a day to day basis. They adapt to what your body needs and have the ability to regulate your system up or down depending on the need at the moment.
The adaptogens used in this simple latte recipe are Tulsi and Rhodiola. Here’s a bit more about the benefits of each ingredient:
- Tulsi has a bright, antidepressant quality. It’s the preeminent adaptogen, probably the number one herbal medicine in all of Ayurvedic medicine. Recommended that you eat it daily. Tulsi has been shown to promote a positive mood, restore balance, and rejuvenate the body and mind.
- Rhodiola promotes a healthy response to stress and supports adrenal functioning.
- Coconut butter adds a wonderful serving of healthy fats to your lattes and your adrenals love fats.
- Collagen is excellent for lubricating joints, bones, and muscles. If I forget to take my daily dose, I can definitely feel the difference in my knee joints. It also gives this latte its wonderful frothy finish.
- Raw honey improves allergies and digestion.
- Cinnamon promotes healthy blood sugar levels.
- Ginger is a warming digestive aid.

Great Jennifer! Please let us know what you think when you’ve made it. ~Deanna HB Team
I use ashwaganda twice a day. Can I use both or should I do one or the other ? ThAnk you
It may be good to do one in the morning and the other later. Tuning into how your body is responding is what is key 🙂 ~Deanna HB Team
Unfortunately, I can’t eat coconut products. Are there any other possibilities of healthy fats that could be added to this instead? Thanks.
I was wondering the same thing.
Please feel free to play around with the recipe and see what works best for you! =)
