Tips & Tricks: Kava Kava

A usual serving of regular Kava root powder is 2-4 tablespoons. When using an extract, it is necessary to adjust the amount of Kava that you use.

Place your Kava in a blender with your favorite fat containing liquid (i.e. coconut milk, cow’s milk, etc.) for 5-10 minutes. The Kavalactones found in Kava are only fat soluble, so using it with water or other non-fat beverages will not work.

Tip: You can also try mixing your Kava with warm milk as it seems to dissolve a bit better when the liquid is heated.

After the Kava is blended, or allowed to steep for the preferred time, strain the liquid into a large mug or a bowl through cheese cloth or nylon strainer bag. Vigorously squeeze the strained Kava in order to maximize the reelase of Kavalactones.

The liquid has a cinnamon like flavor. Add a drop or two of vanilla extract and enjoy.
