Mushroom latte!? I know, it sounds crazy right? But bare with me…
Since I am limiting my coffee intake, I turn to Earl Grey tea and as my midday caffeine I have matcha. Lately I have been making mushroom lattes and adding it to my daily routine. I know mushroom lattes must sound crazy but let me tell you, it is delicious! I use Om’s Mushroom Powder powdered mushroom blend IMMUNE + Terrasoul Superfood lion’s mane powder.
Mushrooms are a great superfood that doesn’t break the bank. It is great for our brain, immune system, stress, fatigue, full of vitamins and antioxidants, well known for its adaptogenic properties (which helps stress), and I could go on! Nutritional benefits vary from mushroom to mushroom but you get the benefits for your health either way.

If I haven’t convinced you on mushroom lattes yet, how about this?
Single Species Mushroom Powders and Blends
If you have a particular health concern, a single species (such as those listed in the table above) may deliver the powdered mushroom benefits to suit your needs. If you’re looking to increase overall health, powdered mushroom blends can present a variety of benefits.
In addition to single species mushroom powders, Om Mushroom, for example, offers flavored and unflavored mushroom blends to support specific needs, including:
Beauty (Chaga, King Trumpet, Cordyceps, Maitake, Shiitake)
Immunity (Turkey Tail, Maitake, Shiitake, Cordyceps, Reishi)
Energy (Cordyceps, Reishi, Turkey Tail, King Trumpet, Maitake)
Restoration (King Trumpet, Cordyceps, Reishi)
Brain Fuel (Lion’s Mane, Reishi)
While convenience plays a major role, the ability to receive nutrients from mushroom powder also relies on quality. (Om Mushroom Powder)

Conveniently Incorporate Powdered Mushroom Into Your Diet
Mushroom powder is made from dehydrated and ground mushrooms to provide a higher concentration of nutrients, prebiotic fibers, amino acids, micronutrients, and antioxidants. To achieve powdered mushroom benefits for your health, incorporate the recommended dosage into foods like soups, dips, sauces, casseroles, chilis, stews, or pasta. The mild, earthy flavor of many powdered mushroom supplements is also well-suited for drinks like coffee, tea, hot cocoa, or smoothies.
For optimal immune support, it is recommended that those new to functional mushroom consumption double the recommended dosage of 2 grams per day for the first three weeks, as many supplements are bioreactive and it takes time for your body to assimilate. (Om Mushroom Powder)
I don’t get paid any affiliation from Om Mushroom Powder. I am simply a happy customer of theirs. The mushroom latte speaks for itself!

Boil hot water. Add all the ingredients to a cup, except for the milk. Add a few tablespoons of hot water to the mix, a little above the powdered mix.
