This nighttime latte is our go-to when we can’t seem to decompress enough in time for bed. It’s also a useful elixir to promote good quality sleep, say if you are traveling or have to spend your night in a less than comfortable bed, airplane, bus, or sleeping bag.
- 1 tbsp Skullcap herb and/or Chamomile
- 1 cup almond or other non-dairy milk
- 1 teaspoon honey
- 3 dropper-fulls of Mushroom Revival’s Reishi Mushroom fruiting body extract
- First brew the tea for 5 minutes in about 5 ounces of water, with the top covered to retain all the oils.
- Warm up milk in saucepan or small pot, stirring in the honey.
- Combine the liquid in your jar, mug, or thermos.
- Add 3 dropper fulls of reishi tincture and stir.
- Top with cinnamon.
Tip: Prep this tonic well before you’ll need it, especially if traveling, and keep in an insulated bottle so it’s hot and ready when you are.
Reishi Mocha Latte
Reishi can also be enjoyed in the morning, promoting focused energy and anti-inflammatory properties. Level up your coffee, make this casual drink supercharged and full of potent medicinals. Reishi goes wonderfully with chocolate, so we’ve created this divine recipe for a Reishi Mocha.
- Ground coffee or espresso
- 1 tbsp cacao powder
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- ⅓ cup coconut cream
- 3 dropper fulls of Mushroom Revival’s Reishi Mushroom fruiting body extract
- Optional sweetener: 1 tsp raw honey, 1 date, a few drops of stevia extract
- Brew your coffee or espresso as normal. If brewing regular coffee, try using less water (same amount of beans — this will result in a stronger concentration) so you can combine with cream.
- In a saucepan or pot, heat the coconut cream to just before simmer.
- Combine the cream, coffee, coconut oil, cacao powder, reishi extract and sweetener into a blender.
- Blend on low until you get a nice frothy layer on the top.
