LION’S MANE CACAO SHAKE

LION’S MANE CACAO SHAKE

I am a big fan of Lion’s Mane Mushroom Powder. The studies on this medicinal mushroom are quite remarkable particularly for brain health and nervous system support. Apart from vitamins and minerals, Lion’s Mane also contains some specific compounds including hericerins, erinacines and specific glycoproteins and polysaccharides. Studies suggest it has anticancer, neuroprotective properties. It may also protects against stomach ulcers, boost mood and combat depression, improve memory and may help prevent conditions such as Alzheimer’s.  Readily available as a powder it is delicious added to drinks and soups. Try this fabulous cacao shake for a brain boost

Difficulty – Easy

Time -5 minutes

Serves – 2


What’s good about it?

In addition to the health benefits of using Lion’s Mane powder, lucuma powder is a natural sweetener rich in fibre to support digestive health. Almond nut butter provides plenty of healthy fats, protein and vitamin E known for its antioxidant properties. Adding a scoop of maca powder helps nourish the adrenal glands too making it an ideal drink to reduce the impact of stress on the body.

Simply place all the ingredients in a blender and process until smooth and creamy.

Best served Immediately
