Chocolate Reishi Latte

Chocolate Reishi Latte

As you might have noticed, Maria and I have been into the whole adaptogen movement lately. Adaptogens are basically any herb, spice, or mushroom that helps decrease stress and balance your body and your hormones. Anxious? We’ve got a shake for that. Need to increase energy and stamina? We’ve got balls. 😉

I myself have had to slowly start introducing adaptogens into my life to prevent getting overwhelmed. Besides ashwaghanda and maca powder, reishi is the third adaptogen I use most often. 

Reishi mushroom is known as the “ultimate balancing adaptogen.” Like many of the adaptogens, it has so many amazing benefits that you want to try and find a way for it to become a regular part of your diet.

Reishi Benefits

Anti-Inflammatory

Helps prevents tumor growth and cancer

Improves liver function and detoxification

Supports cardiovascular system for heart health

Balances Hormones naturally 

Supports immune function 

Improves cognitive functioning 

 

Reishi mushroom is a mild adaptogen, and (according to research) it’s benefits are most often noted after it’s been taken regularly over a long period of time. So for me, I either add it to my morning shake or make this Chocolate Reishi Latte which is so so delicious! I love making this at night to wind down with something warm and chocolatey. 🙂
