Mushroom

Mushroom coffee

II'm increasingly fascinated by mushrooms.  Mushrooms are gut friendly and contain high levels of antioxidants.  Evidence is mounting for their adaptogenic properties, meaning they can help bring the body back to homeostasis.  Medicinal mushrooms have been used for centuries There are a number of ways to make mushroom coffee but as I like coffee itself, my recipe uses normal coffee.  This recipe uses powdered lion's mane, almond milk, coconut oil a little maple syrup to taste (optional) and coffee. Lions mane is sometimes call the brain health mushroom and can help memory, mood and concentration.  

Simply add 1/2 teaspoon of powdered lion's mane to coffee the way you usually make it and then blend, adding 1/2 tsp coconut oil, almond milk and a little maple syrup.  I top mine with cinnamon.

(Lion's mane powder is easily accessible; I use Indigo Herbs).
