Everyone has their morning routines mine comes with a cup of blackstrap molasses. Yes, you hear that right. Let me say this right, I don’t drink a whole cup of blackstrap molasses but it does make an appearance on a spoon.
Mornings are not my favorite but we all have to get up for many reasons, dropping the kids or going to work. One of the most common things everyone does (other than showering and eating breakfast) is making coffee, buying coffee or having someone bring you a cup of coffee. I personally don’t drink coffee, never liked the smell or liked the taste. Smoothies are more my thing but there is something I have started doing recently to build my body up in a healthy way and give me the energy that I so need.
It was suggested to me from my mom when I was pregnant with my son because I was so tired and drained. So she told me to have molasses to build my iron up and give me a body boost since I was tired all the time but of course, you don’t have to only have it then its great for anyone who needs energy and let’s face it, who doesn’t need energy? It is easy as putting chocolate syrup into a glass of milk. Skip the chocolate and replace that with molasses. Stop groaning at the thought, it doesn’t taste bad. I would say it tastes similar to an ice coffee but try it before you judge.
What is so good about blackstrap molasses? This dark syrup that comes from sugar cane and it is known for having iron. You can also find other nutrients like copper, calcium, manganes, selenium, magnesium, and B6. I have researched and found out that molasses have cured things of menstrual cramping, cancerous tumors, anxiety, constipation, joint pain, acne, gray hair, make skin softener and so much more.
You can also give this to kids as well. They might now take it from a spoon (I know I wouldn’t) but if they think its chocolate milk then they would totally drink it. My little brother drinks it in the mornings because he is always, always, always falling asleep (in the car, on the couch, sleeping upright, he may or may not have slept in class lol) and he drinks it knowing that it is not chocolate syrup. If a child (knowing how kids can be very picky) can drink it then you should be able to drink it with no problems. Why not boost your body with some natural energy and give yourself a healthy super boost.
