Oh, coffee! The magic little bean that fuels us so! It’s delicious and complex flavors… its seductive aroma.
It truly is the only (real) way to wake up in the morning!
But if you love coffee as much as we do, you probably need to curb your caffeine intake from time to time.
Most people think that decaf is caffeine-free, but that’s not the case. Most decaf has about 1% caffeine. So def not what we are used to, but still a tad of caffeine nonetheless.
So how can we still get some of the benefits of coffee with caffeine in it by drinking coffee with only 1% caffeine in it?
Easy: Add Mushrooms!
Our Wild Shroom line does the trick. Medicinal mushrooms, in case you haven’t heard, are revered for their mental benefits as well as their long term health-promoting benefits. (Learn more about them here.)
In summary, mushroom coffee is a great way to get similar caffeine-like benefits of mental clarity and stamina without the caffeine load. (And if you aren’t in the mood to give up caffeine, try mushrooms in your regular coffee for a near-life-changing combo!)
The following recipe can be adapted to any coffee and with a mix of ingredients… so feel free to experiment! (And don’t forget about the Wild Butter Brew recipe since it should be a standard in your drink repertoire.)
Deliciously brewed, blended with superfoods and coconut cream; this creamy coconut mocha decaf will leave your regular cup of Joe in the dust!
