This recipe for Coconut Mushroom Ginger Coffee is a wonderful substitution for traditional caffeine-spiked coffee.

Made with fantastic superfoods like Reishi Mushrooms, cacao, and coconut milk, this beverage will provide you with wonderful healing properties and it tastes absolutely delicious.

Reishi Mushrooms boost the immune system and are anti-carcinogenic. A great source for the Reishi Mushroom Elixir Mix is a company called Four Sigmatic. Cacao is high in magnesium.  And coconut milk and oil are good fats for hormone production and are anti-microbial.

Reducing and/or eliminating caffeine is an important step toward rebalancing your hormones. For more helpful information on caffeine and it’s negative effects on hormones, check out this article.

  1. There’s a question I’ve been trying to answer….. Doesn’t cocunut have anti fungal properties which would have a anti reaction to the reishi mushroom spores perhaps even turning the spores into mercury which is very hard to remove from the body?

  2. What type of coconut milk are you using, canned full fat, canned light or refrigerated coconut milk beverage? Thanks. The recipe sounds delicious.

    • Hi there,
      You can use whichever you prefer. I typically just buy a carton of regular (full fat) coconut milk. Also, feel free to try other kinds of milk you find enjoyable, too.
      Healthy Regards,

  3. Replying to MR A MUMFORD:

    Medicinal mushrooms like Reishi differ from fungal microbes like Candida. Medicinal mushrooms boost your immune system and gut health thanks to the dietary fibers they contain. They’re also prebiotic, which means they support good flora and starve bad gut microbes. So Reishi and other such mushrooms are actually antimicrobial.

    Medicinal mushrooms are also quite different from the dietary mushrooms you’d throw in your stir-fry, which tend to be starchier.

    Lastly, how would antimicrobial action produce mercury, a heavy metal?

    Mercury might accumulate in wild-growing mushrooms. However, most commercial mushrooms are grown in controlled environments and cultured substrates, which are unlikely to have heavy metal accumulation. Hope this clears up the confusion.
