Iced Coconut Chaga Tea Shake

DSCN3809

This week’s recipe is inspired by Thursday’s blog post on Chaga mushroom.

The most popular way to consume Chaga is by making a tea from ground Chaga powder. You can buy Chaga powder from the health food store. But, instead, I choose to find my own wild Chaga. I store the wild Chaga pieces in a cookie tin : )

Of course, you can drink Chaga tea as a hot beverage. And I certainly do that during the blustery winter months here in Canada. But since summer is here, I would rather make a lovely iced coconut Chaga tea shake. It’s just so delicious!

Chaga has a nice earthy taste to it, with just a hint of vanilla. Don’t be intimidated by what the mushroom looks like or where it grows. Chaga has a nice, mild flavour.

Serves: 1

Ingredients
  • 3/4 of a glass of cooled Chaga tea
  • Add 3-5 ice cubes
  • Add 7-10 drops of vanilla liquid Stevia (NuNaturals)
  • Top the glass up with coconut milk and stir

Instructions
  1. If you have wild Chaga, place a 2 x 2 inch piece of Chaga into a spice grinder. Pulse until a powder is created.
  2. Place the Chaga powder (approximately 2 tablespoons) into a pot with 4 cups of water.
  3. Simmer the tea with the pot lid on for 20 minutes.
  4. Strain the Chaga powder out. BUT DON’T THROW IT AWAY. Dry the powder out, and make more tea from it. You can repeatedly simmer Chaga powder until it doesn’t release anymore of its dark brown colour.
  5. Chill the tea or serve hot.

Notes
You can absolutely put the ingredients into a high speed blender (Vitamix) and make a Coconut Chaga Tea Slushy.
