The reishi mushroom is a “superfood” with health benefits that boost mental clarity, immunity, longevity and combat inflammation. It’s especially helpful when you’re battling a respiratory issue like bronchitis.
This quick and easy recipe is not only incredibly healthy, it’s delicious! The reishi powder gives a more earthy, aromatic dimension to traditional hot cocoa.
Don’t worry! You don’t have to go out and find a Shaman. Nor do we recommend attempting to forage mushrooms yourself! That could be dangerous.
We recommend Terrasoul’s Red Reishi Mushroom Powder (get it on Amazon) and follow the simple steps below.
- 1 tsp reishi mushroom powder
- 2-3 tablespoons cacao powder
- 1 tsp coconut oil
- 1/3 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp vanilla
- pinch cayenne pepper
- hot water
- milk of choice
- organic honey (optional)
Slowly warm a cup of your milk of choice over low heat until it gets hot and a bit frothy. While it’s heating up, mix together the mushroom powder, cacao, coconut oil, cinnamon, vanilla, cayenne and a splash of hot water into a paste in the bottom of a mug. Add the hot milk to the mug and whisk well. If desired, drizzle in a bit of honey to taste. We find that this cocoa already has a mild, sweet taste without adding any sweetener.
