Nothing is more comforting during the holidays than sipping a warm beverage around the fireplace. If you're looking to mix things up and try something new this year, Gina Ciaccio-Holmberg of Within Apothecary created a delicious mushroom & cacao recipe to try out!

"Life can be stressful! One of my go-to's at the end of a stressful day is a warm tonic with adaptogenic herbs. Adaptogenic herbs help you "adapt" to the stressors of life, boost your immune system, regulate your mood and relax you. I cannot "stress" (ha!) enough just how life changing they have been for me. Around the holidays, I like to make my tonics extra fancy by incorporating cacao and spices. And let's be honest, the Cap Beauty coconut butter makes everything better. If you're caffeine sensitive, I recommend omitting the cacao in the evening!"


8 oz hot water
4 oz coconut milk (warmed)
1 packet of Reishi Hot Cacao
1 tbsp Cap Beauty Coconut Butter
1/2 teaspoon Sun Potion Ashwagandha
1 tsp of maple syrup
1/4 tsp of nutmeg
1/4 tsp of powdered ginger
1 dash of vanilla extract
1 pinch of Cap Beauty salt


Place all ingredients in a high-speed blender and blend on high for 30 seconds. Enjoy!
