Ingredients

MUSHROOM HOT CACAO LATTE

  • 1 tsp mushroom powder (we love Four Sigmatic Superfood Blends Reishi Spores or 10 Mushroom Blend*)
  • 1 tsp maple syrup (or other sweetener of choice, plus more to taste)
  • 1 tsp almond butter (optional // or other nut / seed butter)
  • 2 Tbsp cacao powder (or unsweetened cocoa powder)
  • 1 pinch ground cinnamon
  • 1 pinch sea salt
  • 1 cup dairy-free milk (such as cashew, coconut, or almond milk)

MUSHROOM COFFEE LATTE

  • 1 tsp mushroom powder (we love Four Sigmatic Superfood Blends Reishi Spores or 10 Mushroom Blend*)
  • 1 tsp maple syrup (plus more to taste)
  • 1 tsp cacao powder (optional)
  • 1 pinch ground cinnamon
  • 1 pinch sea salt
  • 1 cup dairy-free milk (such as cashew, coconut, or almond milk)
  • 1 shot espresso, or 1/3 cup strong brewed coffee

Instructions

For the hot chocolate:

  1. Add mushroom powder, maple syrup, almond butter (optional), cacao powder, cinnamon, and sea salt to a small blender (we like the NutriBullet).

  2. Steam or heat dairy-free milk until hot and add to the blender. Blend on high for 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until frothy and well blended.

  3. Taste and adjust flavor as needed, adding cinnamon for warmth / spice, more sweetener to taste, or more cacao for rich chocolate flavor.
  4. Serve as is, or top with coconut whipped cream, cinnamon, and/or cacao powder. Best when fresh. Store leftovers covered in the refrigerator up to 2 days. Reheat in the microwave or on the stovetop until hot.

For the coffee:

  1. Add mushroom powder, maple syrup, cacao powder (optional), cinnamon, and sea salt to a small blender (we like the NutriBullet).

  2. Steam or heat dairy-free milk until hot and add to the blender along with the espresso or coffee. Blend on high for 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until frothy and well-blended.

  3. Taste and adjust flavor as needed, adding cinnamon for warmth / spice, more sweetener to taste, or more coffee or espresso for a stronger coffee flavor.
  4. Serve as is, or top with coconut whipped cream or cinnamon. Best when fresh. Store leftovers covered in the refrigerator up to 2 days. Reheat in the microwave or on the stovetop until hot.

Notes

*The Four Sigmatic blends we love are the Reishi blend and the Superfood 10 Mushroom Blend. In our experience, the Reishi blend is better for evening time or when you're wanting a calming effect while the 10 Mushroom Blend is more suitable for daytime as it provides a boost of energy.
*Nutrition information is a rough estimate for 1 of the hot cacao lattes. The mushroom coffee will be similar in nutrition but will vary based on the ingredients you add.
