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


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. 🙂
