BAD BOY of all Mushrooms!


Itโ€™s Honestly Magical (& non-psychedelic)

So I've been building a love-hate relationship with Chaga for the past year or so, but I think I've finally found the perfect Chaga combo in this really easy Hot Chocolate recipe.


Chaga is a dark, woody type of mushroom that offers a wealth of health benefits.

Most famously, Chaga is known for its highly potent antioxidant content and immune-boosting properties.


Known as 'kreftkjuke" in Norway, (which translates as "cancer fungus") Chaga has been used in folk & botanical medicine backdates right back to the 16th century to treat & prevent illness. To this day Chaga is still a popular and profound medicine used in holistic treatments.


Being a big fan of mushrooms in general and impressed by its nutritional content, I was really excited to start incorporating this into my PlantBased diet.

Typically, Chaga is dried and grounded into power which can then be brewed and ingested as a tea.



On it's own, I'm not gonna lie, it doesnโ€™t taste great.

It's quite a thick consistency with a pretty bitter taste, but the botanical benefits of this plant really do make it a very worth-while taste to get acquainted with.

And Iโ€™m going to tell you how...






The Recipe


โ€ข 1tsp Organic Chaga Powder

โ€ข 1tsp Organic Raw Cacao

โ€ข 1C Water

โ€ข Drop of Maple Syrup

โ€ข Coconut Milk

โ€ข Fresh Nutmeg.



The Method

Simmer a tsp of Chaga in 1C water, covered & over a low heat for 40mins.

(This is necessary to activate the nutrients in the Chaga)

Towards the end of brewing, add the Cacao, Milk (I just use a splash, but you can make it as milky as you like- just add less water when brewing the chaga), a grating of Nutmeg and Maple Syrup (sweeten to taste).

Give it a good stir and return to the simmer for a further 3-5mins.

Serve and Enjoy!
