Hot Chocolate--Why mushrooms?

At Healing Earth, we believe hot chocolate should be a time to relax & de-stress. We chose to include the Reishi mushroom because it has been used for millennia in chinese medicine to relax the mind and bring the body into balance. So the mushrooms actually enhance the naturally relaxing experience of hot chocolate!

I came up with mushroom hot chocolate because I’m always cooking with mushrooms and love developing recipes. I couldn’t find a mushroom hot chocolate so I decided to make my own. I modified my Mom's 'Bienek Family Hot Chocolate' recipe to include the Reishi mushroom, known to enhance relaxation without adding a mushroomy flavor.

This hot chocolate is also dairy free, so vegans and people with dairy allergies, like myself, can enjoy it.

"It's rich, nutty, and smoothly coats my mouth. It has just the right balance of sweetness; hot chocolate is usually too sweet for me." -Zak Weinstein

The Reishi mushroom, which includes the Ganoderma complex including (Ganoderma lucidum, G. tsuga, G. orgense) is what is called an adaptogen. An adaptogen is a natural substance which is known to be non-toxic and helps the body adapt to stress as well as bringing balance to the endocrine(hormones) and immune systems. Reishi has been used as an anti-inflammatory, enhanced immune system support, respiratory support, and liver support. Researchers have identified that water-soluble polysaccharides are the most active element found in Red Reishi that have anti-tumour, immune modulating and blood pressure lowering effects.

I believe that fine ingredients and fresh local sources are worth it for good food. Our hot cocoa powder is fair-trade certified, so even though we cannot purchase from a local source we do what we can to ensure the human rights of farmers around the world.

Ingredients: Organic Fair-trade Cocoa Powder, Organic Coconut milk powder (Organic Dehydrated Coconut Milk, 2.5% Organic Tapioca Maltodextrin (Derived from Organic Yuca Root*) 0.5% Organic Acacia Fiber), Organic Reishi Mushroom powder.
