We rarely drink coffee these days. That is, we rarely drink it black without doctoring it up with protein and superfoods or tweaking it Bulletproof-style. Espresso shots have become less of a beverage and more of an ingredient to us as we find ways to pack in more medicinal foods and nutrition into our diets.
Lately, we’ve been making tonic runs to the new Lifehouse Tonic bar in Hollywood. Their modern menu includes probiotic tonics and tea elixirs, but most notably, they’re blending up these coffee and nut butter shakes spiked with their own stock of medicinal mushroom powders.
We snagged this shroomy shake recipe from the team ahead of their Mushroom 101 class detailing the Chinese medicine, Ayurvedic practices, and herbalism that inspires their passion for these powerful adaptogens. Get the details below!
