Today, hundreds of thousands of people use and enjoy Kratom. This Southeast Asia native has become a daily substance for multiple people using the natural supplement to achieve a level of overall wellness and to alleviate multiple health conditions. But irrespective of this, Kratom’s taste is not the best and often leaves a negative aftertaste in the mouth of the users. This has caused users to branch out to using what is known as potentiators to mask the taste and make Kratom that much easier to consume.
And today, there are multiple Kratom based recipes that users can take advantage of to enjoy their favorite natural supplements. And today, we are going to be covering one of our recent favorite potentiators – Applesauce. Our Applesauce recipe is easy to make and does not require a lot of raw materials!
Mitragyna Speciosa, aka Kratom, is a tree within the coffee family primarily within Southeast Asia. Although it recently began to have a surge in popularity in recent months in the United States, it had been used by the indigenes of countries like Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia to deal with basic wellness issues including alleviating discomfort and overcoming synthetic substances craving. It also has antioxidant properties which is helpful to the body.
Kratom can be consumed in a wide variety of ways, it can be brewed as a team, taken in form of a capsule or taken in powder form through the toss and wash method. But most of these expose you to the not so pleasant after taste of Kratom which is why adding potentiators to the mix could be extremely important. And you could use anything from yogurts to juices or applesauce to cover up the taste of Kratom.
Picking the right Apple for your Kratom Applesauce
To get the right apple sauce (lower sugar content), we recommend either Fuji, Gala or Golden Delicious. If you want more sugar to your apple sauce, we recommend McIntosh apples as the way to go. There are also other variants you could pickup to get your Applesauce going. Of course, you can also use pre-made applesauce, but be aware these are typically very sugary.
How to Mix Kratom and Applesauce
- Your Personal Kratom Dose
- 2 Apples (We Recommend Using Different Types)
- ½ Teaspoon Of Cinnamon
- 2 Tablespoons Of Water
- 1 Teaspoon of Sugar (Optional)
- OR store-bought applesauce
Our decision to not include a certain amount of Kratom is because the amount of Kratom depends on multiple factors. Is your Kratom an extract or regular Kratom? What sort of effect are you looking to achieve? All these factors play a huge role into the amount of Kratom your mix will be getting.
And as you can see, sugar is optional here as well. With sugar, it is easier to mask the taste of the Kratom but if you do not like sweet things, removing the sugar is a better bet. Things like cinnamon or more apples to enhance the taste of your Kratom mix.
Making The Mix
To begin the process, you need to peel, core and cut up each apple into smaller pieces. If you do not know how to core an apple, there are several articles online you can pull up to learn how to do it easily. When you are done, place the apples into a bowl, add some cinnamon and sugar (if you want to use it) and add the Kratom and tablespoons of water. Cover the bowl with a plastic wrap with a little side left opened so steam can escape.
Place in the microwave and run on high for 3 – 5 minutes. This time could depend on the potency of your microwave so you might need to adjust as necessary. Remove the microwave and check if the apples are tender enough for your need. If they aren’t, keep microwaving till they reach the texture you desire.
Begin to mash with a fork till you achieve the texture you need.
Enjoy your kratom & applesauce!
