Vanilla Agave Nectar

We are sad to report that David Favor is not currently supplying the beloved Vanilla Agave Nectar. We are keeping this page here in case a new, reliable supply opens up, but none is foreseen at this time.

Other Options For Sweeteners:

  • Honey: We buy raw honey from local farmers markets to use in our Chocolate Bliss drink. Replacement with Agave is 1:1, however it is higher on the glycemic index so you may want to try other options or cut it with other options, especially if you are diabetic.

  • Stevia: We aren't big fans mostly due to taste, but many people are enjoying this low-glycemic sweetener option. If you have a preferred replacement ratio for Chocolate Bliss, please let us know. Most stevias are 30 times sweeter than Agave/Honey, so a little bit will go a long ways.

  • Coconut Palm Sugar: We love to use coconut palm sugar anywhere dry sugar or brown sugar is called for (e.g. dessert recipes). If you use it in your Chocolate Bliss drink you may need to use 1.5 times the amount you would have used Agave in order to have the same level of sweeteness. Coconut Palm Sugar is also low on the glycemic index.

  • Xylitol: This dry white powder is made from birch trees and is low on the glycemic index. Xylitol can be replaced with agave 1:1. We prefer honey for the mineral content and flavor, but xylitol is another viable option.

  • Maple Syrup: If you make sure you get pure maple syrup (no fake High Fructose Corn Syrup varieties), this is a flavorful, nutrient rich option. It's higher on the glycemic index, so you may want to cut it with other options, especially if you are diabetic.

  • Other Agaves: We've tried many other agaves in the past and had bad reactions. The challenge with finding a good quality agave is that many of them add High Fructose Corn Syrup as part of the manufacturing process to help it pour more easily into the bottle. Since it's part of the manufacturing process it isn't listed on the ingredients. To find an agave that works for you it's best if you test it on your own body.
    Here's how David Favor tests agaves on his body:
    mix 1/4 cup agave + 3/4 cup water + drink + then check blood sugar every 15 minutes for an hour. If blood sugar spikes up, then drink more water (1+ liters) to dilute blood sugar. Then just rule out all the agave brands that spike up blood sugar.

About Vanilla Agave Nectar

Pristine Vanilla Agave Nectar may be the perfect sweetener. Agave is flavor neutral and amplifies other flavors, while white sugar washes out other flavors. 1/3 Cup Agave replaces 1 Cup white sugar.

Agave's rich density of saponins increase hydration as their soapy, surfactant nature enhance its wetting angle, supporting most rapid cellular water uptake, especially when used with Sun Fire Salt.

Agave is low glycemic and rich in inulin, which resists digestion until the lower intestinal tract. This supports pancreatic enzymes for tissue regeneration, immune function and longevity rather than digestion.

 

Vanilla Agave Nectar Ingredients

Pristine, Natural State, Agave Nectar and pristine, 100% pure vanilla powder. Love and intention.

About the Ingredients
The product is free of: pesticides, cane sugar syrup, corn syrup, surfactancts, fillers, filtering and belaching/denaturing chemicals.

All ingredients are Pristine, Certified Organic or wildcrafted. Protected from irradiation, X-rays, truck/ship/plane exhaust fumes and overheated warehouses.

This agave nectar has been infused with 100% Pure Premium Vanilla Bean Powder (most vanilla is less than 1% actual vanilla bean).

Agave nectar and vanilla bean powder together have two primary synergies:
1. they amplify flavors more together than each do individually
2. when vanilla bean powder is cold decocted (flavors extracted) in agave nectar, the vanilla agave nectar seems to have even less of a glycemic effect than agave nectar by itself.

Because of the low glycemic index of Agave and since it is digested in the lower intestine (instead of the stomach like sugar), it is a natural for people with sugar metabolism challenges. Be sure to consult your health practitioner if this applies to you.

Levitation Lemonade

Levitation Lemonade

My friend Courtney Clay came up with this super hydrating, nourishing, yummy tasting lemonade that’s quick to make and easy to customize to your desired tastes and nutrient requirements.  She calls it Levitation Lemonade.  I didn’t ask her why – I was too busy levitating.

This lemonade has been a life saver for us in the over 100 degree heat we get during Texas summers, after workouts, after sweating at my favorite Korean spa, and especially when we were camping and hiking at high altitudes in Colorado this summer.

When you’re ready to re-hydrate, keep cool, and support your body’s natural inclination to levitation, this customizable recipe will be your best friend.
