Nourishing Chaga Latte

Chaga is a mushroom which grows on the side of birch trees in Siberia, Russia, eastern Europe, and some parts of the United States and Canada. 

Chaga resembles burnt charcoal in appearance and tastes nothing like a mushroom. In fact, it has the slightest hint of vanilla.

 Chaga is considered to be a 'superfood' and offers many health benefits to the body including:

It contains a high level of Beta-D-Glucans to support the immune sytem and is considered to be an adaptogen supporting the nervous system and endocrine system.

It also stimulates the production of digestive bile in the liver.

It also helps to regenerate cells and damaged tissue while promoting the growth of healthy cells.

Chaga is rich in nutrients such as  copper, calcium, potassium, manganese, zinc, and iron. It contains numerous B vitamins, flavonoids, phenols, minerals , and enzymes. 


Ingredients

  • 1-2 tsp chaga powder
  • 8 ounces water
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut milk, almond milk, hemp milk (I love BPA free Native Forest Coconut Milk)
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • pinch of cinnamon and cloves (you can always add more to taste
coconutmilk

Optional Ingredients

  • 1 tsp cacao powder
  • 1 tsp local honey for sweetness

Preparation

  1. Add chaga to water and simmer. The powder turns the water a dark brown color that looks similar to a cup of coffee. It is beneficial to steep the chaga for about 10-15 minutes.
  2. Add coconut milk (or milk of choice) and continue to warm.
  3. Stir in coconut oil and cinnamon.  
  4. Adjust spices to taste.

Sip warm. Enjoy!
