A REISHI MUSHROOM RECIPE FOR WHATEVER MOOD YOU’RE IN
Reishi mushroom has a deliciously bitter taste, reminiscent of rich dark chocolate. (It’s the mushroom for all you chocolate lovers out there.) Reishi’s bitter taste comes from its triterpenes, which support many functions in the body, including a healthy inflammatory response, brain function, as well as the nervous and immune system.* At Mushroom Revival, we love to use Reishi mushroom for sleep support, and as an overall daily support tonic.* Read on for some yummy and nourishing Reishi mushroom recipes that will satisfy any craving!
UPLIFTING REISHI “SNICKERS”

- 12 Medjool dates, pitted
- 48 raw or roasted almonds

- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Slice the pitted dates in half and place them on the parchment paper, cut side face up.
- Stuff two of the almonds in each date.
- Microwave the chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl for about a minute, pausing every. Once the chocolate is mostly melted, add the Reishi extract, coconut oil and sea salt to taste.
