Nothing quite hits the spot and soothes the soul like a warm drink on a cold day (or anytime of year!). Add in the incredible medicinal properties of Chaga mushroom and some special healing spices, and you have yourself a deeply therapeutic and delicious drink to enjoy. This recipe would be wonderful to serve to friends and family or to savor on a quiet morning or evening alone.
Chaga is one of the best sources of betulinic acid, which is known to kill cancer cells on contact. Chaga is therefore often listed as one of the top anti-cancer and anti-tumor foods and is highly valued in a variety of natural cancer treatments and preventative protocols. Research has shown Chaga to be particularly beneficial for colon, stomach, endometrial, lung, breast, and prostate cancer.
Chaga is also rich in beta-glucans, which can dramatically strengthen and reinforce the immune system making it an ideal choice for those suffering with autoimmune disorders such as chronic fatigue syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, fibromyalgia, irritable bowl syndrome, Crohn’s disease, lymphoma, bursitis, shingles, and PCOS.
Chaga contains the highest level of superoxide dismutase (SOD) in the world, which is an enzyme that promotes the breakdown of free radicals and has been shown to be highly effective in the treatment of Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s, Lou Gehrig’s disease, gout, scleroderma, osteoarthritis, and cataracts. Its anti-inflammatory properties makes it ideal for those with IBS, arthritis, colitis, cystitis, tendonitis, edema, asthma, celiac disease, and acne. The wide range of healing benefits found in Chaga makes its one of the most important and essential medicinal foods to be included in one’s natural health regime.
Spiced Creamy Hot Chaga
1 cup coconut milk
1/3 cup hot water
1 tsp Chaga mushroom powder
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon + more for sprinkling
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp ground cardamom
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
1-2 Medjool dates
1/2 tsp alcohol free vanilla extract
For the coconut whip topping (optional):
1 14-ounce can coconut cream or full fat coconut milk, chilled in the fridge overnight
2-3 tbsp raw honey
Place the coconut milk, water, chaga powder, cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, nutmeg, dates and vanilla in a blender and blend until smooth and frothy, for at least 2 minutes.
To make the optional coconut whip, chill your mixing bowl in the freezer for 10 minutes. When the bowl is chilled, remove the thick cream from the top of the can, leaving the coconut water behind. Using an electric whisk, beat the cream for 2-3 minutes until you get soft peaks. Add the honey and beat for another 2 minutes.
To serve, pour the latte into a cup and top with coconut whip (if using) and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Serve immediately.
