Here’s how to drink your medicinal mushrooms
Updated: Apr 14
While the idea of mixing mushrooms into your favourite hot bevvie may seem strange, it’s a great way to dissolve mushroom powder for those who’d prefer their mushrooms to stay incognito. Here at Touchwood, we all consume our daily mushies in different ways. Here are three ways to start your day with medicinal mushrooms.
Cat’s ceremonial mixture
As a busy business owner and mum, Cat needs sustained energy over the course of the day. Not only that, she exercises regularly and runs the house while her husband, Duncan, works away. To give herself a boost each day, she uses Lion’s Mane and Reishi medicinal mushrooms and Sacred Earth Ceremonial Cacao.
Lion’s Mane can help Cat with focus and calm, while supporting her immune system and encouraging cell regeneration in her brain. Not only that, she finds it helpful to sustain gut health — which makes her feel good all over. For more information about Lion’s Mane, check out this post.
Known as the Herb of Immortality, Reishi mushrooms have been used for centuries to stimulate the immune system, fight fatigue and lower stress. Cat finds they help her recover when a particularly hard workout leaves her with aches and pains, too.
The Ceremonial Cacao is a special treat. Not only does it taste great, Cat finds it helps her focus and creativity. Sourced in Peru, Sacred Earth Cacao is ethically, sustainably and bio-dynamically sourced from a family run farm located in a powerful valley microclimate nestled between the Andes and the Amazon basin.
Each morning, Cat mixes Ceremonial Cacao with oat milk and hot water. She adds a teaspoon of Lion’s Mane and Reishi mushrooms and tries to take a moment out of her busy day to enjoy this restorative blend.

Lee’s spicy start
Cat’s mum, Lee, also starts the day with medicinal mushrooms. Her favourite mixture contains Lion’s Mane and Reishi as well, but that’s where the similarities end. Lee mixes her mushrooms with black pepper, ginger, cinnamon, honey, hot water and a dash of milk. She also includes Kintra Golden Blend Turmeric Powder. Lee loves turmeric and it has been used for thousands of years in the Ayurvedic tradition to promote healing in the mind, body and spirit.
Graham’s no-fuss yogourt
While the women in his life incorporate their medicinal mushrooms into a lovely ritual, Graham is all about speed and ease of use. His go-to morning routine includes Reishi and Lion’s Mane mushrooms mixed in with a dollop of yogourt. Graham’s got better things to do than savour a hot beverage in the morning. His yogourt method delivers the mushrooms to his stomach without delay. And that’s just how he likes it.
