There's no better time to start thinking about our immunity. Diet, exercise, stress and environmental factors all play a part in the state of our immune function and how it defends itself against foreign invaders.
I have recently started to pay even more attention to all the above and finding ways I can
support my immune system in a variety of different but natural ways.
This hot chocolate is the ultimate luxury chocolatey taste that also offers to support my immune system by the added addition of medicinal mushrooms.
Medicinal mushrooms such as cordyceps, chaga, reishi, maitake, shiitake and turkey tail are powerhouses of nutrients providing many positive health benefits.
They have many health benefits such as stimulating energy production, reducing anxiety, anti-parasitic, anti-bacterial, anti-oxidant, anti-viral and anti-inflammatory! The list goes on as science starts to unravel their amazing power.
For this hot chocolate I used Golden Greens Mushroom Complex (reishi, maitake and shiitake).
2 tbsp cacao
2 cacao butter buttons
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp mushroom complex
2 tsp maple syrup (or as much as you like)
add your favourite milk.
For this one I used Oatly chocolate oat mylk.
place all ingredients except the milk in a mug and add a small amount of hot water to melt the cacao butter, leave for a minute until its melted, top up with hot water and add your chosen milk.
