A supercharged brain-boosting mushroom smoothie to keep you focused and energized

Mushrooms are a functional food. Functional foods are foods that go well beyond simply providing calories and good nutrition. They have disease-fighting properties. In other words, they are medicinal, which we get pretty excited about here at Lakeside!

Mushrooms support the immune system, boost stamina and endurance, and enhance cognition. For more info on the top medicinal mushrooms, see this post.

Adding mushroom powders to your smoothies is an easy way to ensure you get your daily dose of mushrooms. I like Four Sigmatic and Host Defense powders.

Mushroom Cacao Immunity Smoothie


  • 2 tsps mushroom powder
  • 12 ounces unsweetened almond milk or coconut milk
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1 TBSP almond butter (or nut butter of your choice)
  • 1 TBSP cacao powder
  • 1 scoop plant-based protein powder (I recommend Sunwarrior)
  • 1-2 cups spinach
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • Few ice cubes
  • 1 TBSP cacao nibs (for topping)


Add all ingredients to a blender and blend on high until well combined. Add more liquid if desired. Top with cacao nibs.
