Chaga and chocolate...

Today, we're sharing our favorite, not-so-secret chocolate chaga smoothie recipe. It's a great way to add a boost to your morning routine - and it tastes amazing.

But first...

Why We Love Chaga in a Smoothie

Chaga is classified as an adaptogen, which is a natural substance that can help normalize and regulate the immune system.

Myco-chemicals in chaga include beta glucans, polyphenols, plant sterols and terpenes. All of these are recognized as pharmacologically active compounds and are being studied extensively all over the world.

Here are a few of the chaga benefits that come from these compounds: 

  • Antioxidant
  • Antineoplastic (anti-cancer)
  • Immune Modulative
  • Antidiabetic
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Antimicrobial

Our daily cup of chaga tea is a staple. But a simple tea isn't the only way to get those benefits.

Chocolate Chaga Smoothie Recipe

Ready to turn up the health factor on breakfast? Here's how to make our favorite chocolate chaga smoothie recipe.

Ingredients:

  • 2/3 cup of milk (you can use dairy or non-dairy)
  • 1/4 cup yogurt or kefir
  • 1 tsp chaga powder
  • 1 tbsp cacao powder
  • 1 banana
  • Pinch of cinnamon

Toss everything in the blender and blend until smooth and creamy.

Now, that's just a base. One their own, these ingredients make a deliciously smooth chocolate chaga smoothie. But, you can always add more to the blender to up the health factor or change up the taste. 

These are a few of our favorite additions:

  • Berries - blueberries especially - great for their antioxidant power
  • Spinach - packed with vitamins, minerals, and magnesium that support your immune system
  • Hemp hearts - rich in healthy fats and essential fatty acids
  • Flax seeds - high in fiber and provide good amounts of protein

    When it comes to smoothies, the sky really is the limit. Experiment with flavors to find your perfect AM fit. Enjoy!
