Dr. Rhea Mehta's Foffee Recipe - Featuring Wild Remedies Chaga
I'm so excited to share one of my favorite recipes of all time with you! That's Foffee. You might be wondering if there's a typo in there... No typos here. Foffee IS coffee for the non-coffee drinkers, or for those of us wanting to change things up for health, palate or other reasons. Adrenal fatigue is a real thing. So is coffee addiction. You might be nodding yes. I was once there, on both accounts, and that's when I decided to experiment with other nutrient-enriched superfoods, hot liquid, spices and love. That's how Foffee was born. My IDEAL way to make Foffee is with CHAGA tea or mushroom powder. I'm a huge chaga supporter because it's got antioxidant effects off the charts. That's right, OFF THE CHARTS! And to express how much I love this mushroom, I once yelled "CHAGA!" out loud in my sleep in a room full of humans, and I've been nicknamed chaga ever since :). Chaga is not only a super antioxidant (more potent than most foods you know), it's also an immune booster. One word of caution though: source matters. That's why I'm excited to endorse Wild Remedies' chaga because this product is made with such intention, critical thought and care.
Here's the recipe
• 2 cups warm chaga tea • 1/4 cup coconut cream or unsweetened nut milk • 1 tbsp coconut oil or MCT oil • 1 tbsp raw cacao • ¼ tsp cinnamon and chai powders • Optional: pinch cayenne pepper, pink salt, stevia • 1 small piece of fresh ginger and turmeric
To a high-speed blender, add tea, followed by the remaining wet and dry ingredients. Blend on high for 15-20 seconds and serve.
