About the Recipe

Reishi is often referred to as the Queen of medicinal mushrooms and is revered as one of the greatest immune boosting fungi on the planet with it's use being dated back to over 4000 years. It's immune boosting benefits are noticed when it is consumed regularly, so finding an easy and enjoyable way to weave this into your life is best way to embrace Reishi's life enhancing benefits. While this warming elixir is quick and easy to make and has a lovely flavour, it also acts as an immune boosting tonic while calming the mind. On top off that, the compounds in the cinnamon verum are known to stabilise blood sugar levels, so it's a great companion for anyone wanting to get on top of their sugar intake and cravings. Taste wise, Reishi has a similar bitter taste to coffee which makes this drink the perfect replacement without giving you the buzzy highs and lethargic lows that caffeine can sometimes bring. I recommend sitting down to enjoy this Reishi latte either after breakfast, to kick start your working day or to enjoy with friends or family. Your body, mind and spirit will love you for it!
