One of my nightly rituals has become having a cup of Four Sigmatic Mushroom Cacao - it has a cinnamon infused dark chocolate flavour. The box describes it as a European style hot chocolate/sweet bedtime treat. I was skeptical at first, what business do mushrooms have being added to hot cocoa?!
This hot cacao mix has passed my taste test as a sweet treat while also proving to be a great way to unwind at the end of the night! Even my family members have given it the thumbs up. Mushrooms are considered an amazing functional food because of all the properties that benefit our well being. They have been studied to enhance brain health, cognitive focus, stress reduction, immune support, gut health and so much more!
The Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum mushroom) has been studied for years to have calming effects. Reishi has a long history of use in ancient China by Taoist monks and sages for cultivating spiritual energy, reducing stress, calming the mind, and transforming negative energy in the body.
This fills my cup with a healthy chill and chocolate fix. Make sure to follow the directions on the box, it's a small mug filled about 3/4's. As the summer approaches, you can pour this drink over ice or blend it with your favourite milk. It can also be used as topping over yogurt or on one of my faves halo top ice cream.
