Spiced Mushroom Hot Cocoa Recipe

Amy k |


For the Powder Mix:

  • ⅔ cup of Orange County Brain Food Mushroom Cocoa Mix (You’re off to a great start with this unique blend!)
  • 3 tablespoons of turmeric (Known for its anti-inflammatory properties)
  • 6 teaspoons of ground ginger (Adds warmth and depth)
  • 6 teaspoons of ground cinnamon (A comforting spice)
  • 3 teaspoons of ground black pepper (For a subtle kick)
  • 3 teaspoons of cumin (Rich and earthy)
  • A dash of cayenne pepper (Optional, for those who like it spicy)

For One Mug of Spiced Mushroom Hot Cocoa:

  • 1 tablespoon of the prepared powder mix
  • A mug of warm milk of your choice (Almond milk, oat milk, or even coconut milk work well)
  • Sweetener of your choice: honey, raw sugar, maple syrup, or agave (Adjust to your desired level of sweetness)


  1. Prepare the Powder Mix:

    • In a mixing bowl, combine the Orange County Brain Food Mushroom Cocoa Mix, turmeric, ground ginger, ground cinnamon, ground black pepper, cumin, and a dash of cayenne pepper.
    • Mix thoroughly until all the spices are well incorporated.
    • Store the powder mix in a sealed container away from damp areas. Label it with the date so you can keep track of freshness.
  2. Heat the Milk:

    • Warm your milk in a saucepan over low heat or in the microwave. Be careful not to scorch it.
    • The warm milk will help melt the powder mix and infuse the flavors.
  3. Whisk It Up:

    • Once the milk is warm, remove it from the heat source.
    • Add 1 tablespoon of the prepared powder mix to the warm milk.
    • Whisk vigorously using an automatic whisk or frother to create a smooth texture.
    • The frother will also add a delightful foam top to your hot cocoa.
  4. Serve and Savor:

    • Pour the spiced mushroom hot cocoa into your favorite mug.
    • If desired, sweeten with honey, raw sugar, or your preferred sweetener.
    • Take a moment to appreciate the rich aroma and the comforting warmth of this elixir.
    • Sip slowly, allowing the blend of mushrooms, chamomile, ashwagandha, and 5-HTP to work their magic.

Creative Twists:

  • Chai-Infused Variation:

    • Add a chai tea bag to the warm milk while heating it. Remove the tea bag before whisking in the powder mix. The chai spices will complement the mushroom blend beautifully.
  • Coconut Bliss:

    • Use coconut milk for an indulgent twist. The natural sweetness of coconut pairs wonderfully with the spices.
  • Top with Whipped Coconut Cream:

    • Whip up some coconut cream (chilled coconut milk solids) and dollop it on top of your hot cocoa. Sprinkle a pinch of cacao powder or cinnamon for an elegant finish.

Remember, this spiced mushroom hot cocoa isn’t just a drink—it’s a ritual. Sip it mindfully, and let its soothing properties envelop you. 🍄🍫✨

Enjoy your cosy evenings with this elixir of relaxation and rejuvenation! 🌙🌟
