Hot chaga

Updated: Aug 6, 2019

Transform your warming cup of hot chocolate into an immune boosting potion.

[Serves 1 cup]


  • 1 cup plantbased mylk (almond, coconut, hemp...)

  • 1 tablespoon raw cacao powder

  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil

  • 1 teaspoon chaga poeder (I love the brand Sun Potion)

  • pinch sea salt zeezout

  • pinch cayenne

  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup or raw honey (if using honey, make sure to not heat it)

  • good pinch of cinnamon



Heat up the mylk to boiling point. Blend with the rest of the ingredients and serve.

It is normal to get some "dirt" from the chaga on the bottom of your cup, just eat with a spoon :-)




A note on chaga

I'm currently working on a guide to adaptogens, but here's the lowdown on chaga.

Chaga mushroom is a type of fungus that grows mainly on the bark of birch trees in cold climates, such as Northern Europe, Siberia, Russia, Korea, Northern Canada and Alaska. For centuries, chaga has been used as a traditional medicine in Russia and other Northern European countries, mainly to boost immunity and overall health. Please do your research or talk to your doctor/naturopath before introducing plant medicine into your diet as chaga might affect your insuline resistance.
