Spiced Mushroom Elixir

spicy mushroom elixir recipe

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.***

I’m based in London in the UK. I’m a yoga teacher and also studying full time to become a nutritional therapist via the College of Naturopathic Medicine. I am passionate about helping people become more connected to themselves via yoga/movement and the cascade effect that this tends to have on nutrition and a general awareness for how to look after the body. I truly believe that we are able to recover from pretty much all chronic health conditions, once the emotional aspect has been processed and the environment and inputs (loosely nutrition and movement) have started to come into balance.I discovered the Real Mushroom brand from a podcast I follow and I have loved the product since. It is hard to find really good quality medicinal mushrooms over here in the UK so I ended up buying directly and even re-sell on to some people over here in London. I am fascinated by the health benefits and therapeutic use of medicinal mushroom products in both nutritional therapy and longer term chronic illness/disease management.
