Easy home-made Reishi cappuccino is a real alternative to cappuccino. So lovely and easy, with its immune boosting properties. Hope the cafe’s starts serving this!
I love the old cappuccino, I use it as a treat after chores in the morning, I like what caffeine does to my body (initially). I spend a lot of time thinking where the best cuppa around Queens Park/Kensal Rise/Notting Hills is, as I am willing to move pretty far to get the perfect cup. However….there is always a but. Coffee is not particularly healthy, and I know it makes me more tiered by the end of the day, giving my liver some extra burden to work through.So today I tried something new I came across in Alejandro Junger’s Clean Eat cookbook- The REISHI cappuchino. It was delicious. Reishi mushrooms are medical mushrooms that can be bought in any health store. They have some amazing properties like strengthening the immune system, being an strong antioxidant helping fighting free radicals in the body. I am so excited by Reishi these days that I have signed up for a one day course to learn more about its specific capabilities. Will of course report back here.
- 1 cup almond milk
- 3 capsules of Reishi
- 1 tbs coconut oil
- ½ tsp cinnamon
- ¼ vanilla extract
- pinch of Himalayas sea salt
- 1 tablespoon coconut palm sugar
- I added all of these ingredients in my milk steamer,
- Alternately you heat the milk and coconut oil, and the mix in all other ingredients with a hand-held blender.
Back the the cappuccino. It was delicious and it served me and my liver well as an afternoon treat. Will have it again tomorrow.
