Chocolate Reishi "milkshake"

Nurture Immune Boosting Smoothie Recipeby Alexandria Smith, Nurture

Reishi mushrooms have long since been recognized for their incredible wellness properties, dating back to ancient Chinese medicine. Reishi stimulates health, rather than treating illness, which makes it a superior adaptogen. I began to play around with small amounts of reishi powder in my children's daily smoothie, and quickly realized it pairs amazingly well with chocolate (but then again, what doesn't? ) ; )   The combination of the creamy frozen bananas, sweetness from the dates, and rich chocolate taste of the reishi and cocoa powder, paired with the omega 3 rich flax milk, made this adaptogenic smoothie taste more like a decadent milkshake... my kids agreed in the form of empty cups and chocolate mustaches.

combine the following in your blender:

-1 1/2 frozen bananas

1/2 cup of pitted dates

1 1/2 cups of flax milk

1/4 tsp reishi powder

1 tbs chia seeds

1 tbs fair trade cocoa powder

1 tbs chocolate almond butter powder
