Motherhood Blend - with Ārepa, Faba Bean Protein & CordycepsFranjoskitchen
Bye Bye Brain Fog
An enriching elixir to energise your body and calm your mind. Powered by Ārepa, the ultimate brain food.
This is not just another smoothie powder. It’s the Rolls Royce of maternal nutrition. Expertly formulated by our naturopath Jo, the potent combination of protein, superfoods and herbs will bin your brain fog and replace it with optimum mental clarity.
If you want to feel more alert, positive and energised without caffeine, pills or sugar, this is the brain food you need in your life.
As mums, our minds and bodies are put through the wringer. Pregnancy, childbirth, sleep deprivation and the general relentlessness of motherhood can take a toll. A big one. Sometimes our brain has so many tabs open, we find ourselves rocking an empty pram, forgetting appointments and spending way too much time searching for car keys.
With six kids between them, our founders Fran and Jo have been there and got the spew-stained t-shirt. After years of researching and finetuning, our Motherhood Blend represents the latest advancements in improving brain function the natural way.
Add it to your morning smoothie, include it in a baking recipe, or simply mix it with your preferred milk to give your brain the boost it needs to deal with the daily grind.
Whether you’re preparing or recuperating from birth, running after a toddler or dealing with a petulant teen, our Motherhood Blend will help you stay fueled, focussed and (almost completely) sane.
Every spoonful gifts your body the vitamins and vitality it needs to meet the demands of mum life. Add it to your daily routine to help:
- Improve mental clarity and function.
- Eliminate brain fog and mental fatigue.
- Strengthen your body and calm your mind in preparation for birth.
- Assist in the healing and recovery process post-birth.
- Increase energy levels and stamina.
- Reduce stress and feelings of overwhelm.
Address adrenal fatigue and aid digestion.
Our Motherhood Blend combines the best traditional and new superfoods to optimally support your mental and physical wellbeing.
Ārepa Nootropic Powder
(Neuroberry® Blackcurrant, Pine Bark Extract, L-Theanine)
Sourced from Fran’s homeland, New Zealand (NZ), this clinically tested formula supports cognitive function, reduces mental fatigue and enhances immunity. NZ blackcurrants rich in vitamin C are combined with a rare amino acid found in green tea and an ultra-pure extract of bark from NZ pine trees. Formulated by a world-renowned neuroscientist, it’s the ultimate brain food and based on decades of research.
Faba Bean Protein
Our faba bean protein is sourced from Country Victoria where Jo grew up. The manufacturing plant in Horsham is the first to bring an Australian plant-based protein to market. Faba bean protein assists with muscle recovery and repair which is especially important after pregnancy and birth. Packed with essential amino acids, highly soluble and neutral in taste and colour, it’s no surprise faba bean protein is in the superfood spotlight.
Cordyceps Militaris Extract
Cordyceps Militaris is an adaptogen sourced from fungi that can help improve your stamina, memory and libido – three things that tend to go AWOL when you’re growing and looking after babies or young kids. High in antioxidants, studies have found it can reduce cell damage, fight inflammation, and improve both heart and liver function. Cordyceps has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries and is becoming increasingly popular as people discover its many health benefits.

Woke up feeling like a geriatric tortoise due to pregnancy or a child with an aversion to sleep? It’s time for a supercharged smoothie.
Combine 1¼ cups of your preferred milk with ½ a cup of frozen blueberries, ½ a frozen banana, 1 fresh or dried date, and a handful of spinach. Depending on your boost requirements, add 1 to 2 heaped tablespoons of our Motherhood Blend. Blitz for 20 to 30 seconds and enjoy.
No time to make a full smoothie? Simple grab a shaker or blender and mix our Motherhood Blend with some cold milk. If you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, we recommend plant-based milks for happy tummies (both yours and bubs).
Voila! A simple and delicious way to summon the energy and mental clarity you need.
