Nutty tahini and creamy cashew butter form the base of this cozy, luxurious blender latte. Dates give it a caramel-like flavor and richness, pairing perfectly with the robust flavors in herbal coffee (which is usually made with ingredients like chicory, roasted dandelion root and/or roasted barley). Not a herbal coffee fan? Use regular hot brewed coffee instead.
New research on reishi indicates it’s a powerful prebiotic to feed beneficial bacteria in the gut. That’s in addition to its longstanding status as a medicinal mushroom linked with better immune function, longevity and greater mental clarity!
