Reishi Coconut Coffee Creamer

As a big half & half in my coffee kind of gal, I’ve never really found a plant-based milk that does the job for me. I don’t have an issue with dairy, so it’s not a problem, but I came up with this recipe when I was looking to add more fiber and fat to my coffee. I wanted to be able to enjoy a cup before my breakfast without getting all wired and jittery. So I’ve started making this blender concoction and I’m a little bit obsessed with it. 

Reishi is a functional mushroom that’s also an adaptogen, meaning that it adapts to what your individual body needs in the way that it responds to stress. What I like about reishi is that it has a calming quality, which may seem counter-intuitive to your coffee, but I think it creates a peaceful energy that I really  appreciate throughout the day. 

Reishi is also called the “Queen Healer” mushroom, and I just love the idea of a mushroom being a KWEEN. 

Reishi Coconut Plant-Based Coffee Creamer

What’s in it: 

  • 2 tablespoons raw cashews*
  • 1 tablespoon coconut butter
  • 1 medjool date*, pit removed
  • 1/2  teaspoon reishi mushroom powder
  • 7 ounces warm water
  • Brewed coffee, to serve

What to do: 

In a high speed blender*, combine cashews, coconut butter, date, reishi, and water and process on high until completely smooth. Pour a large mug a little more than half-way with hot coffee and top with your coconut reishi creamer. 

*If your blender isn’t super high speed, you can soak your cashews and date in warm water for 1 hour to overnight (drain before blending) for a smoother, creamier drink.
