- 250ml Almond milk
- 1 tbsp cacao
- 1 tsp mesquite powder (optional but excellent)
- 1/2 tsp ground ginger powder
- 1/2tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2tsp Chaga mushroom powder
- Top with: cinnamon powder
- Optional: dash of maple syrup or honey
All ingredients into a saucepan to heat 3-4 minutes over a medium-high heat. You want it bubbling then turn the heat off, ensure all is thoroughly mixed together (no lumps) and carefully pour into a cup. Top with cinnamon powder.
No, it won’t taste like mushroom! The Chaga mushrooms will however do wonders for you adrenal glands, the poor glands that get hammered by stressful lifestyles and over consumption of caffeine. Chaga is a wondrous adaptogen that is beneficial for hormonal function and prevents oxidative stress (with its high number of antioxidants). This gorgeous winter treats makes for such an afternoon pick me up when the skies are grey and energy levels are dipping.
Hot tip: Play around with the flavours, swap the ginger for ground clove or the vanilla for peppermint. Be creative and make this winter yours.
