Get a Superhuman Start to Your Day: Chaga Latte Recipe
by Amanda Beisel
Thanks to their superpower properties, medicinal mushrooms had a ton of buzz in 2017 and will continue to lead the way in 2018. I am personally a big fan of mushrooms. In powder and tincture form they are a daily staple in my superhuman nutrition routine. Today I want to highlight one of my favourite mushrooms—chaga—and show you how to make it into a delicious morning beverage.
Elevate Your Energy with The Chaga Mushroom
Chaga is prized in Traditional Chinese Medicine for its ability to preserve youth, increase life-force energy and create a general feeling of wellbeing. Chaga also contains Beta-D-Glucans which boosts and regulates the immune system.
Chaga Morning Latte Recipe
- 1 tsp chaga Powder
- 1/2 tbsp MCT Oil
- 1/2 cup cashew mylk (Unsweetned Vanilla is my favourite)
- 1/2 cup of water
- 1 tbsp manuka honey
- Pinch cinammon
- In a medium-sized pot, heat all the ingredients EXCEPT honey and MCT oil over a medium flame. Do not boil
- Add the heated ingredients to a blender with the MCT oil and the manuka honey. Blend for few seconds to make the mixture nice and frothy like a latte.
- Pour into your favourite mug and sprinkle with cinnamon.
