An oil-based elixir (OBE) can make for a great, nutritionally-dense meal. I personally like to make an OBE whenever I need something light yet is still very energizing and loaded with mentally-activating nutrients. I also like it because sometimes I just don’t feel like diluting the ingredients by adding water and using a blender.
You can use a wide variety of foods, herbs, supplements, and essential oils in your elixir. You can go savory (salty/spicy) or sweet, as long you have the right ingredients. If you can master making an oil-based elixir, you can save yourself a lot of time and digestive energy and still deliver a huge amount of nutrition to your body.
The trick is to know which ingredients to add to give it a nice, pleasant, and orgasmically delicious flavor. For this you need the right sweeteners, the right spices and condiments, and the right essential oils. Once you have these, you can make the most nutritious yet distasteful foods taste unbelievably and addictively delicious.
If you are going for something sweet (which is what I usually like make), you will need these:
- A sugar free sweetener, such as stevia, or another sweetener that is sweet enough to actually give the whole elixir a pleasantly sweet taste. I like stevia the most, but you can also use lakanto or sweetfruit (Luo han guo).
- Other sweetener-like spices. For this, my favorites are Vietnamese cinnamon, vanilla (either the extract or the powder), star anise, and anise. These will greatly enhance the flavor and also give the overall elixir a wide range of flavors, so you will be tasting more than one thing at a time.
- Essential oils. Find a flavor that you like. I experimented with several essential oils, and my favorite are peppermint, wild mint, orange, and grapefruit essential oils. Just one or a few drops of these oils will add to the other spices and sweeteners and give the flavor far more depth. Imagine having something sweet that contains chocolate, vanilla, cinnamon, AND peppermint oil on top of that! It tastes better than Godiva, is far more nutritious and better for you, and %100 guilt-free.
- The most important ingredient of all: chocolate, or cacao. You can use raw organic 100% cacao powder, but I personally prefer and recommend using the straight cacao beans, grinding them with a grinder and making your own cacao powder instead.
And here’s a list of the ingredients you will need to make a sweet oil-based elixir. You don’t need them all, and you can make a great elixir with just a few of these:
Word of caution: Some people will be shocked, and maybe even offended, by the amount of fats in the recipe. Most of us have been so deeply programmed and brainwashed to believe that fats make us gain weight and are bad for us. However, the complete opposite is true here. These fats actually nourish the hormone glands and help with losing excess fat. I have used this recipe myself and with my clients as part of a detoxification and weight loss program with great success.
- The fats and oils you will use as a base for the overall elixir. You can use any or all of the following:
- Raw egg yolks, my favorite. Raw egg yolks, if the eggs are organic & free-range or pasture-raised from a quality source, can have a very pleasant taste when they’re raw, and actually taste like vanilla, and would make a great base for this recipe. I usually use at least 3 yolks and up to 6, depending on whether I’m adding other oils or not. You can add as many as you need.
- Coconut oil.
- Ghee, or raw butter.
- Red palm oil
- Cacao butter
- Other healthy oils, such as olive oil, or pumpkin seed oil.
- Very small amounts of nut butters. My favorites are brazil nut butter, hazelnut butter, black sesame tahini, and hempseed butter.
- Whatever superfoods you like. I personally like to use colostrum, shilajit, blue-green algae, spirulina, chlorella, royal jelly, camu camu berry, acai berries, and whatever else I have available.
- A small amount of apple cider vinegar, mainly to make the other oils easier to digest.
- Any supplements you would like to add. I usually add things like green tea extract, R-Alpha lipoic acid, and acetyl-l carnitine. If they’re in capsules, I’ll simply open the capsules into the elixir, and if they’re in liquid extract form, I’ll simply add a few drops into the elixir, and if they’re in powder form I’ll add a small amount of the powder to the elixir.
- A very small amount of a gluten-free grain: soaked buckwheat, wild rice or cooked quinoa. This is mainly to encourage chewing. Otherwise, it would be very tempting to just swallow the elixir without making it mingle with your saliva first. I found that having a small amount of buckwheat encourages chewing and makes the whole elixir far more easier to digest.
And here’s how to actually make a sweet oil-based elixir:
- Start by melting whatever oils you plan to use in your elixir. I usually like to use ghee, coconut oil and red palm oil. I’ll usually add like a tablespoon or two of each. So I’ll just add those to the bowl/jar in which I plan to eat my elixir, and apply heat to them to melt them. Ideally you would do so using the double-boiler method, but if you’re super lazy like me, you can just place the glass bowl over very low heat and let the oils melt over a few minutes.
- Once you have your melted oil mixture, it’s time to break eggs and add the egg yolks. What I usually do is have something where I can throw the egg whites and shells, and then squeeze the yolk into the elixir bowl. So I’ll break the egg, separate away the whites until I’m left with only the yolk, and then I’ll squeeze the yolk into the bowl, and throw away the “thing” that encases the yolk. That way you get 100% pure yolk and nothing else. It’s usually helpful to have something with which to “wipe” the whites off your hand before you proceed to the next egg.
- Once your done with the eggs, it’s time to add the goodies: colostrum, shilajit, spirulina, chlorella, etc., whatever superfood powders you have. Add them and mix them along with the other fats and oils.
- Add the cacao powder, or grind the cacao beans and add them into the elixir.
- Add the stevia, and whatever other spices you like to use: cinnamon, vanilla, cayenne pepper, etc.
- Add a pinch of sea salt to further enhance the flavor.
- Add a drop or a few of your favorite essential oils.
- Add a teaspoon to a tablespoon of buckwheat, wild rice or quinoa.
- Add your supplements, if any.
- Mix everything together.
- Taste, and see if you have the flavors right. The first few times you may notice that you will either have too little or too much stevia, or too little or too much oil, or that you may like to have a stronger peppermint flavor and add more essential oils. With time, you’ll learn how to get the portions and the flavor right, and mistakes are bound to happen in the beginning.
- Go somewhere quiet and peaceful, so you can enjoy and fully appreciate your elixir.
- Devour your elixir.
- Have an orgasm.
