Sparkling Hibiscus & Rose Drink

Do you feel tired all the time? Do you need a cooling drink?

It’s remarkable how many people, women especially, have challenges with adrenal health. If you struggle with adrenal function, you might oscillate between feeling wired and tired. You might be unable to sleep at night but feel exhausted in the morning. This might mean that your adrenals definitely need some support. One of the things that I have my female clients do, is to bring in drinks that feel energising and exciting. Think of a cooling drink that is healthy that you can look forward to in the day. Red foods support immune health, adrenal health. They also reduce inflammation as they are usually rich in polyphenols and Vitamin C. It’s great during PMS to cool the heat!

Cool yourself with this

Hibiscus & Rose Sparkling Cooling Drink


I think everyone should create a cooling drink or an elixir for themselves, which reflects their personality. It should support you in moving towards how you want to be. If you feel that you would like to be a little more calm, balanced and gentle with yourself, rose is a wonderful option. This recipe is the first in my series of rainbow teas, each with a different intention. Hibsicus has a wonderful balance between sweetness and sourness. People with adrenal issues also struggle with blood sugar balance. My sparkling rose and hibiscus drink has only monk fruit or stevia to sweeten it. If you do not have those, or if you want to have this drink as part of a balanced meal, to complete it, then you can replace the stevia with some raw honey.

I cannot say enought about hibiscus. The colour is so rich and inviting, that it just calls out to me. Here’s another thing I want to say about colourful food, is that intuitively, you will find yourself enjoying what your body really needs. Since I have very sensitive adrenals, I really enjoy this cooling drinkk. This is a great drink to move towards in the summer months, as it is very refreshing and cooling to your body as well. I hope you enjoy it every single day!

As you keep seeing all my recipes, I have three stars of the show, in this case, it’s hibiscus, rose and peppermint. Remember my mantra, which is enjoy food from concept to creation to consumption! You really want to bring your awareness. Intention matters. If you think that you need a cooling drink, try this simple recipe, loaded with brilliant ingredients.

Let’s breakdown the ingredients of this recipe before going into it:

  1. Hibiscus– More than anything, hibiscus is colourful, refreshing and exciting! There are a ton of phytonutrients in hibiscus that will help combat cellular damage and support your mitochondria.  Polyphenols are anti-cancer. and hibiscus might also benefit your liver health! For more information on vitamins and minerals, read my e-book!
  2. Rose–Rose ia also rich in polyphenols that are anti-inflammatory and support brain health. It is a wonderful drink for feminine health and is supportive to menstrual health. It supports stress relief and helps anxiety bringing an overall sense of calm.
  3. Peppermint–Peppermint extract is exhilarating! One of my young clients once had me smell a bottle of peppermint extract that spun me into a world of magic and fascination. It supports digestion, is wonderful for oral health, makes your breath smell great and is also helpful to menstrual health. It can reduce headaches and improve sleep too!

Always remind yourself that food is medicine! With so many ingredients that support feminine health, I call this drink a female wonder. If you would like to connect more to your feminine side, bring this in to your daily routine. If you try this out and love it as much as I do, share a picture on instagram and tag me @phytothrivefunctionalnutrition! You might also like to see if your cycle is in sync with the moon!

My recipes are all super simple, but all of them have an intention towards a system in the body. My intention is that you learn to use food as medicine, but in the simplest way possible. You might also like to try this Lavender & Mulberry Elixer!

Truth is tricky. It’s so easy to try a new diet or protocol and slip into denial over symptoms that arise. A classic version of this is missing a period after intermittent fasting but trying to ignore it. For a woman your cycle is as vital in information as a lab test!⁣


Have you tried a new diet or protocol and ever convinced yourself that it’s working for you just because you’ve lost a lot of weight? Weight loss has become the highest parameter of efficacy even when there is chaos happening within which can include and not limited to:⁣

💛Frequent headaches ⁣

☸️Dysfunctional cycle⁣

💮Low iron or B12 within few months⁣

💜Frequent fevers and coughs⁣

💛Bad skin⁣

☸️Poor quality of sleep even if you are sleeping nine hours⁣

💮Mood fluctuation that includes anger, sadness and overwhelm⁣


Weight loss should not be enough if all this is happening as well. Health should come before anything else.⁣

Fasting is great! But I’m seeing a lot of people who are unable to get benefits from this ancient practice. My guess is that this has a lot to do with sequence, present diet, level of stress and what’s happening within their body.⁣


Some of the indications that the specific fasting approach you are following is not working for you are:⁣

💙Feeling more stressed and having poor resilience to stressors around you. This can include feeling weepy, angry or overwhelmed.⁣

💙Struggling with fatigue and forcing yourself to get through the fasting period irrespective of tiredness, dizziness or giddy.⁣

💙One of the greatest signs of impact is struggling with sleep. This can include inability to stay asleep and not being able to stay asleep for enough time.⁣

💙Not getting a period when you have always had a perfect cycle is a huge red flag. If your body thinks that it’s a state of emergency it shuts off reproductive function and you can miss ovulation and menstruation. I’ve actually heard women say they are happy about missing a cycle but this is really dangerous!⁣


Does this mean fasting is not good? Far from it! I call the fasting approach that I use in practice as Strategic Fasting. This refers to using fasting techniques in specific ways at specific times with specific foods in the feeding window. It can be immensely therapeutic provided you bring it in correctly. ⁣
