My Experience With Reishi Mushrooms
Like anything, you can easily overdo it on “too much of a good thing”. If you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, I’d definitely advise to avoid medicinal mushrooms. If you have any kind of blood diagnosis (high blood pressure etc) chat wit a doc first!
My introduction to any kind of reishi mushroom came from Four Sigmatic. You can read more about my obsession with mushrooms coffee, I originally fell in love with chaga and lions mane.
The reishi cacao mix though has been a nice addition to my week. It’s definitely delicious in this paleo smoothie recipe but I personally love it later in the day, just whisked into water with some almond milk.
I find that it helps calm my system, my mind, and just prepares me to wind down.
I grab a cup about once per week and I look forward to it. You can grab the Reishi blend from Four Sigmatic and use code mamabear to save %10
The Frozen Hot Cocoa
This healthy smoothie recipe is simple… but its also decadent!
It uses the Four Sigmatic Hot Cacao blend as a base to give it not only the cocoa flavor but a boost in nutrients also.
I then whipped up some homemade chocolate to drizzle around it and topped it with coconut whip cream.
This paleo recipe is great on its own as a midweek indulgence but it’s also a super tasty and speedy one to whip up and share with a friend.
And the best part? Now you can enjoy hot chocolate year-round!
If you haven't already, start making your own chocolate sauces and toppings! I've been dairy-free for a couple of years now (learn more about going dairy-free and not hating food) and with the benefits of cacao powder it's still to pay such high prices for pre-made chocolate.
All you need to make your own is cacao powder + a sweetener. It's that easy and that delicious. So, don't overlook the topping for this healthy smoothie!
Don’t forget to pin this indulgent and relaxing smothie recipe!
