He Shou Wu has grown to be one of my favorite herbs next to Ashwagandha. I believe that we all have a very specific way each and every one of us connect with a given herb at any given time. As of recent, this one has really been potent for me. After I was hit with a major sweet-tooth on Saturday, this was the perfect treat to whip up in under 5 minutes!
Note that any other herb(s) with a similar taste profile can be swapped out for this one in this recipe.
