This latte is delicious – it honestly tastes a bit like nutella!
Chaga is a medicinal mushroom that has adaptogenic and healing properties. It’s been used for centuries, is ultra nutrient dense and is an incredibly potent antioxidant. It’s anti-viral, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, immune modulating, and basically everything good for ya! I like using it in tea and tincture form. The tea has a very mild earthy taste and can actually serve as a great coffee substitute. When you ingest water and alcohol (tincture) herbal extractives, you‘re able to obtain a wider range of benefits from the plant as the different processes draw out different beneficial compounds 💫
Directions for Chaga Tea:
- Add 2 tbsp small chaga chunks or ground chaga to 1 litre spring water and simmer at a very low temp for a minimum of 1 hour.
- Strain the liquid and store any extra in glass containers in the fridge.
- Save the chaga and reuse it to make tea a few times, as long as the tea turns a dark reddish brown colour.
Directions for Latte:
- Blend all ingredients on med-high speed for 1 minute.
