Energy Tonic

This week has been one of those weeks.  Late nights, early mornings and lots of middle-of-the-night interruptions from the kids.  And today, I have just completed my 6th load of washing (boys will be boys).  I decided I need a cold, quick-to-make energy shot which I could just gulp down to get me through the moments when I felt I had been hit by a truck.

As they say, sharing is caring, so for all those time starved and sometimes exhausted mums & dads out there, here goes.

Energy Tonic Recipe

2 shots espresso

120ml hot water

1 tbsp cacao

1 tsp monkfruit sugar/coconut sugar/rapadura sugar

Stir until the sugar is dissolved.

Pour into small jugs and store in the fridge.

Or if desperate drink straight away, without hesitation.

Of course, I recommend that you have no more than 2 of these a day.  However, we are all human, so sometimes desperate situations call for desparate measures.
