The crazy busy time of year is now upon us! We are sure you have been running around, shopping up a storm to fill your adorable babies stocking's with beautiful gifts that they will absolutely love!
We are also sure that you probably have not stopped, you are probably tired and no doubt you have not taken a moment for yourself to take care of you!
Make sure you take some time to rest. Whether it be to grab a quick massage or pedicure mid-shop or if you prefer your downtime to be at home, consider downloading a relaxation app on your phone. If you don't already have one, 'Mindfulness' is a wonderful app for zoning out and restoring your energy each day.
At Mama Body Tea, we have blends to cater for everyone during this busy period. Below are a few helpful teas to make sure you have on hand -
DIGESTIVE - Perfect for anyone at all to enjoy after they have indulged over the festive season.. and let's face it, we are all guaranteed to do so! Be prepared with a box of DIGESTIVE in the pantry for you and your guests and you can kick that indigestion in time for your next party!
MAMA'S MILK - Being busy can leave you tired and this, in turn, can affect your breast milk. Drinking 3-4 cups per day can help in boosting your breast milk supply. If you can get your milk flowing, it means you can rest easy knowing that 'pumping and dumping' those cheeky Christmas day bubbles isn't the end of the world!
PREGNANCY - This blend is beautiful hot or cold. If you are doing the festive season pregnant and alcohol-free, you don't have to search for a drink to enjoy. Simply turn your blend into an iced tea and even add fruit if you like, to have yourself an enjoyable drink which benefits both you and your growing baby.

Looking for a delicious treat to take to your Christmas function?
Below is a yummy recipe for you to try out -
CHRISTMAS BLISS BALLS
- 1/2 cup fresh dates pitted
- 1/3 cup dried cranberries
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 1/2 cup nuts of your choice almond, walnuts and pecans all work well
- 1/2 cup shredded coconut
- 2 tbsp coconut butter or regular butter slightly softened and cubed
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 1/2 tbsp cocoa powder
- 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
- 2 tbsp desiccated coconut, cocoa, or sprinkles for rolling.
Soak dates and cranberries in a glass or small bowl of warm water for 15 minutes or until soft.
When the fruits are nice and soft, drain and tip dates into the bowl of a food processor.
Add the remaining ‘ball’ ingredients to the processor and process until combined (the ‘dough’ will become quite dense and sticky when properly combined).
Remove mixture from food processor and roll into teaspoon sized balls.
On separate plates, shake out your desired toppings.
- Roll each ball in your chosen topping before placing on a dinner plate/baking tray/large Tupperware container and popping in the fridge.
Happy Holidays to you and your loved ones Mamas x
