You will need:

  • 2 cups of freshly brewed An Elephant Never Forgets tea OR 2 cups of of this herbal blend: gotu kola, ginkgo, rosemary, and peppermint
  • 1 large mango
  • 2 organic apples, cored
  • 1 lemon, 1 lime

Foods that are good for your brain 

To prepare:

  1. Brew the tea by steeping a tablespoon of An Elephant Never Forgets (or the DIY combo listed above) for 10 – 15 minutes.
  2. While the tea steeps, peel the mango and cut into cubes.
  3. In your blender, combine the tea and the mango, and blend on high speed until the mango is a fine puree. Place into a pitcher.
  4. In your juicer, juice the apples, lemon, lime, carrots, and, if you’re feeling adventurous, the jalapeño.
  5. Add this juice to the tea and mango mixture, and stir well to combine.

Drink in the morning to kick-start your day, or before you study for a big exam, to give yourself a competitive edge. 

Here are some of the amazing health benefits of the ingredients in this recipe:

  • The tea contains ginkgo and gotu kola, which have been heavily researched for their ability to promote memory, focus, and brain health
  • Mangoes and carrots are great for your eyes, and their high antioxidant levels help protect the body from disease
  • Apples are a heart-healthy fruit, and have also shown promise in protecting brain health
  • Celery reduces inflammation, improves gut health, and reduces your risk for neuro-degenerative diseases
  • We added a little jalapeño in the recipe because spicy chili peppers are a superfood for your brain. Consuming jalapeños, cayenne, and other spicy members of the chili pepper family, all trigger a release of feel-good endorphins, helping you feel more confident and positive.

 

Enjoy!
