My favorite way to use the elixirs is probably in baked goods…I love making clean, high vibe treats to enjoy for breaky and snacks. This banana bread recipe with detox + synergy is SO simple, easy to digest and filled with hormone balancing, mood enhancing + gut loving goodness. You can add any By Erika Elizabeth adaptogenic elixirs to your baked goods, pancakes and waffles. They infuse beautifully and add an adaptogenic, stress busting boost.
I’m loving a slice of this grain/gluten free, paleo friendly, banana bread with a drizzle of almond butter, crunchy salt flakes and a detox + synergy latte to wash it down. YUM! You can even make that detox + synergy latte dirty, with a shot of expresso ;)
