Why Add Mushrooms To Your Smoothies

  • Nutrient Density: Mushroom powders are rich in essential nutrients. They typically contain various B vitamins, including riboflavin (B2), niacin (B3), and pantothenic acid (B5), which are vital for energy production and brain health. They also offer minerals such as selenium, potassium, and copper.
  • Immune Support: Many mushroom varieties, like reishi, shiitake, and maitake, are known for their immune-boosting properties
  • Antioxidant Properties: Mushrooms are good sources of antioxidants, which help combat oxidative stress and reduce inflammation in the body. 
  • Convenient Source of Vitamin D: Some mushroom powders are high in vitamin D.
  • Adaptogenic Properties: Mushrooms such as cordyceps and reishi are considered adaptogens, which means they help the body manage stress more effectively. Incorporating these into your diet can help improve resilience to physical and mental stress.
  • Low in Calories: Mushrooms / mushroom powders add minimal calories to smoothies, making them an ideal ingredient for those monitoring their caloric intake but still seeking to enhance the nutritional profile of their meals.
  • Versatility in Flavor: While some mushroom powders have a distinct taste, many are mild enough to blend easily into a variety of smoothie flavors without overwhelming them. This makes it easy to enhance the nutritional content of your smoothie without significantly changing its taste.

What Mushroom Powders Are Best For This Smoothie?

The mushroom powders you could use in this smoothie include:

  • Lion’s Mane Mushroom Powder
  • Seven Shroom Powder
  • Coffee Mushroom Powder
  • Chocolate Mushroom Powder
  • Reishi Mushroom Powder
  • Porcini Mushroom Powder

And many others too.

How Much Mushroom Powder Should I Add In Smoothies?

For single serve smoothies, stick to 1 teaspoon of mushroom powder. 

Most mushroom powders have a strong mushroom smell and taste. You don’t want to add too much, otherwise it will overpower your smoothie.

Mushroom Powder Smoothie Variations

You can customize the recipe if you need to.

For example, you can swap:

  • The banana for mango or other fruit.
  • The peanut butter for other nut butter.
  • The almond milk can be substituted for other milk of choice.
  • The cacao powder for cocoa powder.
  • The instant coffee for cooled brewed coffee.

Add-ins:

  • Boost the protein by either adding yogurt or portion powder.
  • Add more superfoods, such as chia seeds, flaxseeds, maca powders, etc. 
  • Another source of fruit. Try adding a fresh apple, it adds sweetness and cuts through the strong mushroom flavor.

Using Whole Mushrooms Instead of Powder

If you don’t have mushroom powders, you can make this smoothie with raw mushrooms instead!

If using raw mushrooms to make this smoothie, 1/2 cup of diced mushrooms is plenty.

However, do make sure they are preferably organic and washed thoroughly!
