Adrenal Cocktail Mix {Singing Canary Dry Mix}

Are you feeling stressed out of just plain exhausted? This Singing Canary Dry Mix aka, Adrenal Cocktail Mix is just what you need.

What's a Singing Canary, you ask?

Hint: We're not talking about a real bird here, but you'll feel like singing after drinking this.

Well, I'm glad you asked--and you will be too.

Is it a bird?

Is it a plane?

No--it's a drink!

The Singing Canary is the name of a drink developed by the ladies behind the Trim Healthy Mama eating plan. It's basically a blend of lemons, turmeric, and a few other things and is designed to support your adrenals. In fact, it has quite a few ingredients that are considered to be healthy foods for adrenal support.

The Trim Healthy Mama eating plan is experiencing exponential growth in its popularity and for good reason--I hope to write more about it in the future. But in the meantime, let's focus on our adrenals, this drink, and today, this singing canary concentrate.

Supporting the Adrenals

There are so many people talking about adrenal fatigue these days--I think it's rampant. People are wiped out way beyond typical tiredness. Including me. I had a bad case of it, but thankfully I've done a lot to heal and I'm doing pretty well these days.

But I'm always looking for more support. My life is still quite stressful from time to time and with all of the toxins in our lives, I think it's crucial to do whatever we can to support our bodies for good overall health.

So in the interest of supporting my adrenals, I started making the Singing Canary. I liked it, but I had a bit of a hard time with the heavy turmeric taste and kept adding more and more stevia to it. Which is fine, because I really sincerely like stevia and have learned a few tricks to get over the sometimes very problematic bitter taste of stevia.

However, I thought I would monkey around with the ingredients a bit to see what I could come up with to make it a bit tastier. I ended up with this new version of the Singing Canary and well, I love it.

Make that WE love it since my youngest is always stealing sips from me. Ahem.

And bonus--the additional ingredients all have great health benefits as well.

Anyhow, I love sipping on this all day, but it is a bit of a bother to put each of the ingredients into the blender one by one, particularly since I added so many spices to the mix. You know how that goes....1/4 teaspoon of this, 1/2 teaspoon of that....it's all simple stuff but when you have to do it every day it starts taking up quite a bit of time.

I mean, I'm busy.

And I assume you are, too. Our lives are complicated with so many things. For us, we're juggling health conditions and homeschooling, my husband's work, taking care of the house, church life, trying to be involved in the community, and more. Just cooking healthy meals for a family can be challenging in and of itself.

So when I can save a bunch of time on something and it doesn't cost any extra money, I'm all over it.

Saving Time Supporting Your Adrenals

Now, instead of spending a ton of time measuring and scooping each ingredient (that's NINE scoops), you can just measure once and be done with it.

And each scoop saved means a lot of time saved, so if you're not doing what I shared in my Saving Time with Measuring Tools post, then you were REALLY spending a lot of time.

Think about it....scoop-scoop-scoop-scoop---that kind of scooping is loads of fun (at least it is for me) the first time that I make a new recipe, but when you're making it every day, the scooping gets old. Fast.

I have a few time-saving tips on my blog including Baking in Bulk, How to Save Time and Money Cooking Pasta, Saving Time with Measuring Tools, and Saving Time with a Dehydrator. And of course, there's the Vitamix, which is a HUGE time-saving tool for any whole foods kitchen.

The Vitamix? Let me tell you - if you can by any means afford one of these, they save soooo much time money. You won't believe it. We use ours on a daily basis, and sometimes multiple times a day. Yes, you're making more things at home, but you cut down on waste and trips to the store. It's just great. You can also buy them on Amazon.

So back to this Concentrate -- you just mix all of these dry ingredients together, store in a tight-lidded jar, get your Singing Canary Dry Mix out every morning, put some of the powder in the blender, add the wet ingredients, and blend away your adrenal struggles!

Much better to scoop once and blend once than to scoop 15 times each and every day.

Duh - why hadn't I thought of this sooner?

What's the Best Protein Powder?

For starters, please buy organic protein powder if you can afford to.  Many of the foods that protein powders are made from are heavily doused with pesticides--so choose wisely!

There are other good options, but this protein powder is super creamy and delicious and this link gets $10 off. It's garbanzo based but is tested for pesticides and the company is very transparent. Their products are developed to support the gut-brain axis which is known to help manage stress, so that makes this a really great choice, especially for this recipe.

If using another vegan protein powder, I highly recommend using organically sourced. Many of the ingredients in vegan protein powders are crops that many pesticides are used on. This organic vegan protein powder is a solid choice but note it can cause digestive upset for some people.

This singing canary concentrate is easily adaptable for special diets. See notes for details.

Recipe Notes

  • You can use collagen protein instead of a protein powder.
  • For AIP, use the collagen protein option and also substitute organic mace for nutmeg.
  • You can choose to use less Vitamin C for this recipe if you like. If doing so, you should scale down the amount of the concentrate used by 1/4 teaspoon or so.
  • I recommend using sodium ascorbate for this recipe. Other vitamin Cs have different properties. One thing that I like about sodium ascorbate is that it is pretty well tolerated and not acidic so you can buy it in bulk and use it for other purposes where you wouldn't want the acidity, as in this DIY Swim Spray.
  • Stevia is super sweet--this post talks about what stevia is and how to use it.
  • This is a "fuel pull" for those on the Trim Healthy Mama plan.
  • Vitamin C Alternatives: You can use another whole food powder or this Homemade Vitamin C powder is a great option as well.

    Well, I’m a doof. I made this recipe and made a few adjustments using what I had in hand. I used a vanilla flavored collagen instead of protein powder. I didn’t have ground ginger but I DID have ginger root in the fridge. (I love fresh ginger.) Everything is going according to plan EXCEPT I read the directions as 5 TBSP of concentrate. I thought it was a lot and doesn’t make much sense using the majority of the concentrate for one drink. It’s strong flavored (of course) but still surprisingly tasty. Even though I made the drink too strong, I’d still recommend it… just use the correct measurements. ?

      1. Sorry I'm not clear about the function of the ACV. You can do either w/ the lemons. Just I recommend organic if you do the whole lemon.

  2. This sounds awesome! What about taking it on the go though as far as the liquids? Would the Tru lemon packets work? Put a little MCT^ oil in there in the morning and shake it like crazy?

      1. Wow!! I am answe3ring this 2 years later!! Busy, busy life and no internet at home, so while I didn't miss it, I did save the email in my box to read all this time and am now just getting around to it!!
        Thank you!
