Reishi Mushroom Powder Recipes: 5 Delicious Drinks and Snacks

Reishi Mushroom Powder Recipes: 5 Delicious Drinks and Snacks cover
Written by Real Mushrooms - Updated: June 14, 2024

Despite their sterling reputation as a potent medicinal mushroom, reishi mushrooms have far less prestige in the culinary world. They are rarely used as the star ingredient in dishes because reishi’s flavor is commonly described as an “earthy bitterness,” while the texture is chewy and rubbery. Overall, not exactly pleasing to the palette, so it’s no surprise that it isn’t stocked at your local grocery store. Not to worry, reishi mushroom powder to the rescue!

While some Chinese cuisine has managed to utilize the actual mushroom to some degree, it’s far more convenient (and tasty!) to use our reishi powder extract to boost delicious recipes.

Fresh or dried whole reishi mushrooms have a texture that is too dense and fibrous for use in recipes. However, reishi extract powder is an easy way to level up your daily drinks and meals.

Recipes with Reishi Powder Extract

Here are some convenient recipes from our collection that show off our Reishi 415 Organic Reishi Mushroom Powder.

Mushroom Nighttime Golden Milk

Imagine that when bedtime rolls around you experience no “tired & wired” or restlessness. You fall asleep easily and even get the good stuff- the deep REM sleep, where true healing lies, all without sleep aids. No sedating “drugs.” Our delicious golden milk recipe for nighttime uses reishi mushroom powder to help you nod off and get the restful sleep you need, while also supporting your immune system.

Paleo Special Brownies

Reishi’s natural bitterness needs to find some balance somewhere. This bitterness plays perfectly with the sweetness of cacao in this delectable dessert recipe. The taste of reishi mushroom powder is very reminiscent of a highly concentrated dark chocolate, so including it in chocolate treats is a natural pairing.

Reishi Bounty Bars

Coconut fans are already familiar with the delicious Bounty chocolate bars. This recipe will help you make a healthier version that provides all the immune-boosting benefits of our reishi mushroom powder. A perfect snack to take with you on a hike!

Fungi Chia Seed Pudding

Chia seeds are a nutritional superstar in their own right, and this recipe for a delicious pudding pairs them with both reishi and cordyceps extract powder for an amazing, nutritional dessert or snack. Flavored with raw cocoa and your choice of vanilla or peppermint extract, this pudding is not to be missed.

Nourishing Mushroom Elixir

To help kick-start your immune system to support a healthy inflammation response, this elixir features our reishi mushroom powder along with a host of other beneficial ingredients. It’s an especially potent drink for the colder winter months.

Reishi Mushroom Coffee Recipes

If you want to keep it simple, you can add a ½ tsp of our Reishi 415 Organic Reishi Mushroom Powder to your favorite morning coffee or tea and adjust as needed.

The method you use to get your reishi mushroom benefits is totally up to you, but you may want to peruse our DIY mushroom coffee recipes for inspiration!
