How to Use Bettermilk🥛

This proprietary blend is stone-milled for maximum nutrition and versatility. Think of Bettermilk as your new go-to alternative milk and nut butter, all in one! Use alongside your fave Blume superfood latte blends, coffee or cereal, or straight from the jar on toast, crackers or apple slices for a gluten-friendly superfood packed snack. 

To make your Bettermilk, add 1-2 tablespoons of the Adaptogenic Milk Blend to 1 cup of water (hot or cold) to a blender, blend on high for 20-30 seconds and voila! You’re ready to feel all of the adaptogenic benefits with every sip. With zero refined-sugars, we leave sweetening to you. Maple syrup, agave, honey or pitted dates are a few of our fave’s! 

The Adaptogenic Milk Blend contains absolutely no preservatives or fillers, so just like most natural products, separation is normal. Just stir or shake and you’re good to go! 

The Adaptogenic Milk Blend is 1 year shelf-stable prior to opening and best refrigerated after opening. Bettermilk will keep 3-4 months after opening in your refrigerator. If you’re like us, life is pretty busy! We recommend blending a batch and storing in a sealed container for a delicious nut-milk that’s ready when you are. The Adaptogenic Milk Blend contains absolutely no preservatives or fillers, so just like most natural products, separation is normal. Shakey, shakey and serve!

What the Heck is an Adaptogen? 🍄 

Adaptogens are plants! More specifically, they’re herbs and roots that have been used for centuries in Chinese and Ayurvedic healing traditions. Each plant has a slightly different purpose, but as a whole, they support the body to better manage stress. Sign us up! Adaptogens do this by combating fatigue, enhancing mental performance, easing depression and anxiety and by helping you thrive! They contribute to keeping our hormones in balance despite the many demands of life.

While these wonderful superfoods may have magical properties, we should note these are not to be confused with ‘Magic Shrooms’ (the hallucinogenic type). Bettermilk contains the following organic adaptogenic mushrooms:

Reishi, AKA the Queen of medicinal mushrooms, boosts the immune system, while supporting a healthy sleep cycle and improving gut health.

Lion’s Mane is your go-to mood booster — a powerful and natural nootropic (supplement) with tons of benefits, like improving focus, memory, and protecting the body against inflammation. 

Cordyceps are known for reducing fatigue, fighting inflammation and boosting energy levels! Increasing oxygen levels in the body, cordyceps are ideal for athletic performance and boosting libido (Sexy mushrooms? Who knew!)

Chaga is a nutrient-dense superfood that grows on birch trees throughout the northern hemisphere. What many may not know is that it resembles a dark clump of dirt more than a typical mushroom, but is distinguished from other growths by its orange-coloured tissue. Chaga is packed full of nutrients, antioxidants and vitamins (vitamin D, magnesium, zinc, just to name a few!) making it a go-to during the winter months when cold and flu season is at its peak.

A Bettermilk for a Better Earth 🌎

With a mission to reduce the 6 million tonnes of annual carton waste sitting in landfills in the US alone, Bettermilk uses a glass, reusable jar and makes 5L of milk (yes, you read that right, that replaced 5 cartons!). The jar is perfect for storing knick knacks (like those bobby pins you find everywhere when you don’t need them, and nowhere when you do), bulk spices, or even using as a small succulent pot! Get creative and show us how you’re reusing your #bettermilk jar on social!
