Yields about 2 servings 

Adaptogenic Mushroom Blend
1 tablespoon cacao powder
1 teaspoon maca powder
1 teaspoon reishi spore powder
1 teaspoon lion's mane mushroom powder

OR equivalent measuring of preferred mushroom blend of your choice
 1 teaspoon guarana powder (optional for extra energy)

1-2 teaspoons of coconut sugar or maple
1 tablespoon of ghee, coconut oil, grass fed butter or MCT oil
Pinch of pink himalayan or french grey salt


Heat two cups of milk, milk alternative (we love hemp), or water in a pan on medium-low 

Add all powders to hot milk, water or milk alternative and whisk continuously until well blended

Once heated through add ghee, coconut oil, grass fed butter or MCT oil and let it melt completely

Whisk in coconut sugar and pinch of salt to taste

Transfer to a blender and blend for 30 seconds for a creamy foam finish

Optional Ritual from our post How to Add Ritual to Daily Life: Use your favorite mug and decorate with edible herbs and flowers like rose or calendula and combine with your favorite morning ritual.

  1. Making a cup of tea/drinking anything at all: Before you drink, look at the cup and think about what you wish to infuse it with. Let the words find you and say a little prayer over the liquid and then drink it to infuse yourself with those properties. `

    Example: As you drink a cup of your favorite tea, out of your favorite mug, in your favorite chair, held in hands that are adorned by your favorite rings, close your eyes and say to yourself “May this drink warm my body and my soul, may it both ease my worries and ignite my passions, I am thankful for this moment of pleasure, and allow myself to truly feel it, with every sip I become more and more grounded in my being.”

Use this as a coffee replacement when on caffeine breaks and cleanses or to boost energy mid day without caffeine crash.
