A fun variation from a morning coffee, this mushroom latte from Upgrade your Immunity by Dr. Joseph Mercola is a great way to introduce the immune boosting effects of mushrooms without having to cook them into a meal.
I made two variations, once with SKORDO Porcini Powder + once with SKORDO Dried Shiitake mushrooms that I ground into a powder. The porcini powder cut out the step of grinding the mushrooms, and allowed the drink to be ready in just two minutes. However, shiitake mushrooms have a much earthier flavor and an abundance of health benefits that you won't get from a porcini. Both were delicious! I also made sure to use SKORDO Ceylon Cinnamon as it is full of antioxidant, anti inflammatory, and antimicrobal effects as well as a deeper, more complex flavor compared to other cinnamons.
