The rain pitter-patters outside, the blanket is knitted and cozy, the movie is playing and the evening is early… all the perfect things for a quiet night in – expect you are missing one thing; this Cacao Super Elixir warming on the stove and a gorgeous mug to sip it out of.
Cacao is not a new ingredient, but it is one that will forever be enjoyed and admired (even if that’s only by me). It is a powerhouse of antioxidants, minerals and nutrients. When we eat and enjoy it, it makes us happy and encourages nostalgia.
Medicinal mushrooms; such as reishi, have been used amongst different cultures for centuries. They boast an array of benefits; with stress support and immune support on the list. Mushrooms tend to have a bitter strong taste which pairs deliciously with cinnamon and honey.
