Fall is pretty much here, but this weather is crazy. Last week I was in leggings and flannels and yesterday in my roomiest most breathable dress. I’m getting impatient for colder weather and warmer clothes. I want hot drinks constantly and roasting vegetables for soup. My partner has moved here from Australia and I’m so excited for him to experience the wonderful transition that is fall to winter. Watching the leaves change and the nostalgic smells of grass and dry plants that slowly get frosted over in the mornings will always remind me of my childhood.
With this balmy weather though I really wanted to make one last cold summer treat (that would actually still be really tasty to eat in the winter too.) I’ve been all about simplicity this summer, anything I can throw in my vitamix and poor into a pan and eat quickly makes me happy.
Caffeine has never really had a huge energy effect on me. I’ve always just loved the taste and the act of sipping on it in the morning. These little packs of Four Sigmatic Mushroom Coffee Mix though have really turned my world around. I can feel the difference drinking a cuppa every day before going for my run and I love it. And generally once I find something I love I try and throw it into as many things as possible. And how cool is it that you’re getting your dose of caffeine while also having a serving of chaga and cordyceps mushroom? Its great to say this fudge can help with stress, immune support and happiness, and that’s just a handful of the wonderful things mushrooms can do for you.
1 cup soaked cashews
1 cup cacao butter
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 tablespoons maple syrup
2 tablespoons strong coffee
