Herbal Tonic Treats

Urban Moonshine Tonic Treats

These nutritionally packed, herbal treats are one of our favorite things to have on hand and only take a few minutes to make. They are the perfect way to get creative with taking herbs, for yourself or your family and we try to make a large batch each week so that we never feel far from something healthy, and healing.

The great thing about these snacks is that you can add whatever nut or seeds, powdered herbs, spices or herbal tinctures you have on hand. We usually lean toward nourishing and adaptogenic balls that use our Simmer Down or Energy Tonic formulas, which support our bodies in normalizing our stress response and nourishing the nervous system, but depending on the different times of the year, we add in immune strengthening tonics or digestive bitters.

These are the perfect thing to grab on the way out the door in the morning or as an alternative to an afternoon cup of coffee, or sweet treat.

Foods that are rich in protein, healthy fat, vitamins and minerals, increase the body’s ability to adapt and be resilient and increase positive feelings and a better mood. Many herbs also support us in these areas, and whenever we can, we opt to include herbal medicine in our food. These delicious and easy to make treats have been the perfect combination of good nutrition and herbal medicine and have become a significant staple in our wellness routine.

  • 1/4c. hemp seeds
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp cardamom
  • 1-2 tablespoons powdered reishi, or spirulina ( or other powders)

*For medicinals balls; use our products here.For the recommended dose follow the following instructions: 

For Immune Zoom, Joy Tonic, Simmer Down Tonic: Make 12 balls

For Immune Tonic and Energy Tonic: make 24 smaller balls

For Bitters, half the recipe above and make 24 smaller balls

Directions:

In a food processor, combine the ingredients one at a time and blend until smooth, add in the herbal tinctures and mix until well combined- but don't over mix. The consistency should be thick enough to make into balls but not dry enough so that they fall apart. Don’t be afraid to add more nut butter/ honey to get the consistency you want. Roll into balls and roll into coconut flakes, or hemp seeds. Store in a Tupperware in the fridge.

Enjoy!
