Many people have already discovered they can live their lives with a renewed sense of optimism and enthusiasm by using Kratom. What people are also discovering is that the earthy and bitter flavors of Kratom are best experienced when blended into their favorite beverages.
If you are looking to supplement your days by adding a bit more pep to your step, you may benefit from slipping a dose of Kratom to your morning tea, coffee, smoothie, or juice. Afternoon or evening drinks are great options as well because decompressing after a long day at work is an excellent way to use Kratom.
Grapefruit juice is traditionally the most popular way to enjoy Kratom. Whether you’re using it in a toss-and-wash method or mixing your Kratom into the body of the juice itself, the antioxidants from grapefruits remain one of the best ways to increase the potency of your Kratom.
The bittersweet flavors of the grapefruit mingle nicely with the natural bitterness of Kratom to mask the earthiness that some people find unpleasant. Using grapefruit juice as a base helps you stack your morning with the tasty vitamins from the grapefruit while delivering the benefits of your Kratom.
As Americans, many of us have enjoyed a morning glass of orange juice since we were kids. Simply pouring a tall glass of OJ and adding your favorite strain of Kratom is a great way to get your day started out balanced and centered. Just whisk the two together and enjoy.
Squeeze the oranges yourself for more decadence and quality. There’s nothing like freshly-squeezed orange juice. You need about 4 oranges for one 8-ounce glass of juice.
The citrus acidity of the orange juice pairs nicely with Kratom powder and masks the bitterness of the Kratom. The remaining earthiness blends with the juice to create a unique combination of natural flavors. Like grapefruit juice, orange juice is packed with minerals and vitamins which means your Kratom dose comes with an extra injection of wellbeing.
Grapefruit juice and orange juice are two favorite Kratom juice cocktails, but sometimes refreshment isn’t always about taste. Sometimes texture is more important.
Many Kratom enthusiasts believe a smoother texture is necessary to help dissolve the sometimes clumpy powder of Kratom. It’s difficult to fully blend Kratom into thinner drinks and the fuller body of mango juice makes combining it much easier. Blend the two with some ice to fully incorporate these ingredients and make a tasty smoothie for your morning pick-me-up.
Like orange juice and grapefruit juice, pineapple juice is rich in Vitamin C and betacarotene. These antioxidants are known for replenishing and renewing skin. The citric acid in it enhances the potency of the Kratom alkaloids, making pineapple juice another highly popular choice for mixing this dynamic botanical.
There are few things better than a tall glass of cold lemonade in the shade of your favorite tree on a sunny day. If a peaceful afternoon is what you’re seeking with Kratom, the high acidity and sugar in lemonade may be your perfect pairing.
Nothing beats homemade lemonade on a hot summer day. If you want to make it yourself, just combine the juice of about 6 lemons with 2 cups of sugar into a 2-liter pitcher of water. Pour into a glass and whisk in your Kratom powder until well blended and enjoy.
If you’re already a devoted tea drinker, you may find Kratom more enjoyable in your morning steeped brew. The best way to enjoy Kratom in tea is by premixing a tea concentrate to later add to peppermint or spearmint tea, but you can also add the dose directly into your morning cup if you’d like.
Kratom tea aficionados believe that the natural flavors of mint tea blend nicely with the earthy overtones of Kratom powder. Remember that it is possible to over-process Kratom in boiling water and boil out the beneficial alkaloids, so you don’t want to add the powder directly to boiling hot tea. Instead, steep your tea for 5 minutes, wait for another 5 minutes for the water to cool, and then whisk in your Kratom.
Chamomile tea is commonly used as a natural way to unwind after a stressful day. If you use Kratom in the evening, adding it to chamomile may be the ideal combination to help you find your mental center of balance.
The savory herbs of the chamomile pair nicely with the natural earthiness of Kratom powder creating a decadent hot tea that you can potentiate with a hint of citrus juice like lemon.
Coffee is America’s hot beverage of choice. If you, like millions of other Americans, are more of a coffee lover than a tea enthusiast, you can still enjoy a Kratom-infused beverage. Kratom pairs excellently with coffee, too. In fact, because Kratom is related to the coffee plant, the two complement one another.
Coffee has a wide range of flavor profiles and bodies that make it an ideal choice for Kratom users in the morning. The deeper flavor profiles of darker roasts can enhance the earthy flavors of Kratom while balancing the natural bitterness. The texture of fuller-bodied brews provides a rich complement to Kratom. Add heavy whipping cream for a smoother, luxurious taste.
Higher acidity coffees are delicious with a few drops of lemon juice which also works to potentiate Kratom.
As with tea, you’ll want to make sure your water is hot, but not quite boiling when adding Kratom to your coffee. Most coffee brews perfectly between 202 and 205°F. Since water boils at 212°F, this temperature range is perfect for adding Kratom to coffee without damaging the beneficial alkaloids.
If you’re using instant coffee, create your tasty beverage by dissolving the instant coffee in half a cup of boiling water and waiting for it to cool for about 5 minutes. Add your Kratom powder and mix well to dissolve, then add more boiling water to the coffee. Add your favorite creamer and sweeteners to taste.
Kratom, like caffeine, is a stimulant and even strains considered to have sedative benefits may leave you feeling reinvigorated without the jittery effects of caffeine. If you’re mixing Kratom with coffee, use a decaffeinated favorite to make sure you don’t overstimulate yourself.
Kratom Tea Concentrate
Like traditional green tea or chai, Kratom tea can be made into a tea concentrate to be diluted later in hot water. Heat your water to approximately 202°F, measure out your dose of Kratom, and blend them in a teapot while whisking constantly. Strain out any clumps or leaves with a cheesecloth or strainer.
Store the concentrate in a sealed container in your refrigerator for up to 48 hours. To use, dilute the concentrate with water, tea, or even combine with non-dairy almond or coconut milk. Enjoy it hot or cold by sweetening with honey, agave, sugar, or your favorite alternative sweetener.
Chocolate Milk and Hot Chocolate
Chocolate milk, chocolate milkshakes, and hot chocolate are two out-of-the-box-thinking methods to enjoy Kratom cold or hot. At night, it’s a sweet treat to reward yourself, or in the morning to start your day off right.
Cow’s milk has a remarkable neutralizing effect on the natural tannins in Kratom, reducing the well-known bitterness of the powder. If you’re lactose intolerant, you can use lactose-free milk for the same benefits.
Vegans and those with dairy intolerance can still enjoy these tasty treats. Kratom also combines well with non-dairy substitutes. Coconut milk, cashew milk, soy, and almond milk are thick and creamy, allowing Kratom to fully incorporate into any of them. While these dairy alternatives don’t neutralize tannins in the same way cow’s milk does, they still contain high amounts of protein, which means you’ll still get your nutritional needs.
Protein Shakes and Smoothies
Shakes and smoothies are ideal for any Kratom user. Combining fruits, vegetables, juices, and milks with Kratom not only packs a powerful punch nutritionally, but it also helps to mask the flavor of your powder while potentiating them, depending on the other ingredients you use. Adding your 2.4g dose of Kratom to your favorite morning protein shake or before hitting the gym gives you motivation without a caffeine crash.
