So, Mate isn’t the tastiest stuff, but it’s damn good for a cold.
I’ve been sick for the past five days, and such I’ve been drinking a lot of the yerba… and so I thought it would be a good idea to experiment a little. I tried a packet of hot chocolate – you can check my profile for the tasting note, if you want.
In any case, I’ve been thinking a bit about what else you could mix with mate – both to make it tastier, and to make it better for curing a cold.
Anyone have any recipes/ideas?
You can cold steep it, (use plenty of grounds) in the fridge for 1+ hrs and then add pineapple juice, and serve on ice.
Sometimes I add chocolate chips and sugar – sort of like your hot chocolate, but it gives a better taste.
Elderflower is usually what I use to help a cold, especially if I have a blocked nose, but I’m not sure how well it would go with mate.
