1/2 cup(ish) Chaga Mushrooms (can get at your local herb shop or online) (Make sure to check with your healthcare professional if you are on any medications and/or experiencing any conditions that chaga may be contraindicated for).
Ceremonial grade Cocao Powder :: 1-2 Tbsp
Local honey to taste (an alkaline FOOD) :: small spoonful
Coconut Oil (my fav is Dr Bronner) :: even smaller spoonful
1/2 to 1 cup of your fav, organic nut milk
Drop of liquid rose concentrate (can find at Natural Grocers, Central Market or Whole Foods) :: optional
Y'in my kitchen, I strongly connect with my intuition and rarely use measuring devices, recipes or step by step directions. I go with the flow 🙂 In putting together this delicious ensemble of goodness, simply steep a healthy amount of chaga herbs in 2 or more cups of the freshest h20 you can find on a low temp. (This allows for deep extraction of the medicinal propertea of the herb)!!! Once steeped and steaming, remove/strain out the chaga root + add approx 1 TBSP of cacao powder per cup of agua as well as your nut milk to your chaga tea concoction. If you happen to be using a Chaga tincture, simply add your cacao blend to hot water + then your tincture drops. You can play with this amount if desired. Spoon in a generous portion of delicious, local honey (or another form of sweetener if you’re strictly vegan or have other preferences), and a spoonful of organic, coconut oil.
When all ingredients are dancing together in a steamy, coco-aromatic swirl, either stir your elixir with a spiraling intentions or pour into a blender/ mixer to make it bullet-proof-style. If you go the blended route (hot chaga latte, haaay!), watch in delight as you pour your frothy cup of goodness into your most delightful, cherished vessel! Offer a prayer to the Earth, toast to all that warms your heart + imbibe the goodness!
Aloha & Enjoy the Magic!
