Spiced Mushroom Elixir

Caffeine is quite the substance. Some folks praise it and how much better he or she performs whereas for some folks it hinders their performance in a lot of ways. Both perspectives have equal merit. I think it’s safe to say that caffeine is very individual based and will vary from person to person. This leads me to our next topic of discussion. How do you still get that coffee like experience with that aroma, color, boldness, and stimulation, but without the stimulation!? This superb spiced mushroom elixir by Jonathan P. Shanks has just what the doctored ordered.

 

More details below!!

 

– Mug of organic brown rice milk (heated) (preferably sprouted brown rice)

– 1 tsp raw organic cacao powder

– ¼ tsp organic cardamom powder

– ½ tsp Real Mushrooms Lion’s Mane

– ½ tsp Real Mushrooms Cordyceps-M

– ½ tsp Real Mushrooms Reishi 415

– ½ tsp of decent organic coconut oil

– Pinch of Himalayan salt

 

***Blend it all together for about a minute after heating the milk and it’s good to go. You can use any milk you like and also swap out the cardamon for ginger, cinnamon, maca etc. The cacao and coconut oil give it a lovely thick chocolate texture.***

 

Medicinal Chocolate Bark

Medicinal Mushrooms are the perfect companion to boost the health factor of homemade dark chocolate. The natural earthy and bitter flavors of mushrooms compliments the notes of dark chocolate so well. The biggest thing to make sure here is that you select at least 70% or richer cacao to take of advantage of the polyphenols present in chocolate. Plus, these bark/bars will naturally be lower in sugar and dairy. This wonderful recipe by Heather Hendricks shows just that! ENJOY!!!

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

In a bowl, combine all dry ingredients and whisk together until all clumps are gone

Add your butter to the dry ingredients and cut or massage the butter into the flour until evenly distributed. It should look slightly lumpy.

In a separate bowl, whisk together all wet ingredients

Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and simply bring all of the ingredients together. Don’t mix. We’re trying to form a thick dough, not a batter.
