On Shrooms: Yes I Put Mushrooms In My Coffee & You Should Too!
I know you read that title and thought, "That title must be a mistake!" Well, I ain’t lyin! I love drinking my "shroom coffee," as my hubby & I call it, every single day and enjoy the wonderful benefits of other mushrooms in my smoothies, hot chocolate and even baking. No, I am not putting portobello or shiitake in my cashew milk lattes.
These aren’t the same types of mushrooms you would order on your pizza. These are medicinal mushrooms. WAIT! It’s not what you think. These aren’t the kind of “shrooms” that make you hallucinate or do strange things. These are legit, functional mushrooms, superfoods and adaptogens, that boost your immune system, help with stress, sleep, energy, brain health and more.
Adaptogens are herbal substances that are used to improve your health and aid in helping the body to “adapt” to what it needs. They boost the immune system, support healthy weight, increase mental focus, encourage a happy and healthy mood, aid in reducing stress and more.
Let’s talk about Shrooms, baby: specifically the shrooms that my husband and I enjoy on a daily basis.

known as the “king of mushrooms”
Four Sigmatic makes drinking mushrooms and superfoods that are tasty and easy to use. You just add to hot water (or hot flax milk/nut milk of choice) a smoothie or whatever your heart desires. Each packet or serving from Four Sigmatic is the most potent product on the market. That means you are getting the highest quality product with no fillers or added unnecessary junk.
My husband and I have been drinking our mushrooms since March. We have tried all of their Elixers and Mushroom Hot Cacaos. The Mushroom Hot Cacao with Reishi is wonderful to have before bed for a good night sleep, while the Mushroom Hot Cacao with Cordyceps is a great pick-me-up.
The Mushroom Coffees are energizing without giving you the jitters. When you drink coffee without the jitters, it gives a balanced stimulation. The Mushroom Coffee with Cordyceps gives body energy, and the Mushroom Coffee with Lion’s Mane is great for brain energy.
I believe in the healing benefits of these incredible mushrooms! They help you sleep better, adapt to stress (the Lord knows I have stress), balance hormones and maintain healthy energy levels. They also balance inflammation levels in the body.
Chaga, specifically, gives your body an extremely high antioxidant boost. Chaga has the highest ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbent Capacity) ever recorded. We know that blueberries, acai and pomegranates are known as high antioxidant fruits, and that we should incorporate more antioxidants into our diets on a daily basis. Antioxidants can protect your cells against the effects of free radicals which play a role in cancer and other diseases. “Scientists developed something called an ORAC scale, which is a standard recommended by USDA to measure antioxidant capacity. ORAC is the strength with which a given substance wipes out free radicals. Obviously, the higher the ORAC score, the more free radicals that certain substance can destroy.”
Chaga scored 6.5 times higher than acai, 10.5 times higher than pomegranate and 46 times higher than blueberries! This means that Chaga is much higher in antioxidants than the fruits that are perceived to be high antioxidants and that Chaga's capacity to wipe out free radicals is much stronger than any other. You can order Chaga, HERE.
All of that info should encourage you to add Chaga, as well as other mushrooms, to your daily routine. I enjoy adding a packet of Chaga to some hot homemade cashew milk with a scoop of Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides and sometimes I add a little honey or maple syrup to sweeten. I also enjoy adding it to my smoothies.
I joke and tell people that our “gateway shroom” was the Mushroom Coffee mix with Lion’s Mane and Chaga from Four Sigmatic. Now we enjoy Reishi and Cordyceps, along with Lion’s Mane and Chaga, on a daily basis. There are just too many wonderful health benefits that these amazing “magic” mushrooms have to offer.
Peep at my Instagram stories to watch me make my delicious Chaga Latte or Shroom Coffee Latte on the daily! It's my favorite thing to drink in the morning, plus I can start my day ON SHROOMS that have so many benefits.
