Medicinal Mushrooms in my coffee

Have you ever tried medicinal mushrooms before?

This is my go to for getting a good jump on the day with tons of benefits! You see in the picture my favorite coffee cup with some Lion’s Mane & Chaga Blend coffee. I use 3 tbsp. of the ground blend in my French press and add in 2 tbsp. collagen (for gut health plus benefits to nails, skin and hair) and 2 tbsp. heavy cream.

I used to not be able to drink coffee without issues regarding acidity. I don’t have a definitive answer to WHY this version is ok with me, but it is and I am overjoyed considering I do LOVE coffee for the warm roasted flavor!

I purchase mine from Four Sigmatic! They have options without coffee too like hot cocoa and tea. Go check them out and get some for yourself!

Here is $15 to go towards your 1st order! Click here!

My favorite blend includes Lions Mane and Chaga. I also have tried the instant coffee with Cordyceps!

I enjoyed my cuppa joe with these French Toast Chaffles! You can find this recipe in my 2nd cookbook, “Chaffles, Cast Iron, and The Crock”.

I sure do! Now you could make some with my Keto Chocolate Syrup and stir it in, or use this powder in a shaker bottle or blender.

Here I combine cocoa powder, monkfruit, stevia, & Bob’s Red Mill whey powder in the blender!

Reminds me of the chocolate drink mix as a kid with the rabbit!🐰

Keto Chocolate Syrup

I grew up on the famous chocolate syrup that also has a city named after it in Pennsylvania! It is also loaded with sugar.

Yes, I know there is a sugar free one. Not too excited about the ingredients though😣

So in the style of ME, I had to find a way to make it❤

Here ya go!!

It comes out thinner as listed, but decrease the water by 1/4 cup for a thicker version!


1 cup water

1/2 cup cocoa powder

3/4 cup erithrytol-or- monkfruit

1/2 tsp stevia

Pinch salt

1 tsp vanilla extract

Put all in medium saucepan, whisk often until it boils.

Take off heat, Turn down to low. Simmer for 5 min.

Cool then put in jar.

It will thicken as it cools.


Keto Mock Maple Syrup

Since starting keto I have found that there are many different companies catching on and making sugar free versions of the most beloved condiments. Ketchup, dressings and maple syrup.

I have and still do enjoy pancakes and waffles😋 They are the ultimate breakfast, especially when they are keto!

I have tried monkfruit maple syrup topping and walden’s calorie free maple syrup. They are ok. They work for what they are but I think they are too thin.

I figured I could get the ratios right if I tried and I DID!!

There are two odd ingredients in this recipe, one is glucomannon. I have brought it up before and you can get it online. I recommend the NOW brand one. Its a small investment that lasts as you only use a tiny 1/4 to 1/2 tsp per recipe. It is used in my baking mix as well. Its worth it, get some!

The 2nd is Organic Maple Extract. I get both of these online. The extract is not only good for this maple syrup recipe but also for my Keto Breakfast Sandwich recipe and make your own Keto Brown Sugar! I love adding a little to my Keto Pancakes too!

Keto Mock Maple Syrup

3/4 cup water + 2 Tbsp

3 Tbsp erithrytol

1/4 tsp stevia

1 tbsp butter

1/2 tsp maple extract

Pinch salt

1/2 tsp blackstrap molasses

1/4 tsp glucomannon

Put all in a medium saucepan EXCEPT for glucomannon. Bring to boil then sprinkle glucomannon in while whisking briskly.

Turn down to simmer while still whisking. Whisk 1 to 2 minutes until thickened.

Remove from heat and let it cool a little before putting in a jar, or recycled syrup bottle!

Keto Cinnamon Roll Shake

Who doesn’t like cinnamon rolls?? Ok, maybe there is someone, but I think a lot of people enjoy a nice, sweet, cinnamon roll with cream cheese frosting!

There is a bakery in our small mountain valley town that serves the biggest cinnamon rolls I have seen. They are so rich you couldn’t possibly finish one without getting a tummy ache!

One weekend we were camping and our friend brought a whole box of them. I had not had one in forever so I ate a whole one😮

It was a mistake. It was not long till my stomach started churning! It was too much sugar at once!! I regretted it!

This shake has all of the tastes of a bite of cinnamon roll with cream cheese icing without the stomach churning and regrets! It comes together quick and is high in protein, low in carbs and is the perfect snack, or dessert!

I purchased this protein powder on the recommendation of a keto mama friend! I am glad I did. I love it! I will be bringing more recipes to you using this great product!

Dairy Free Mock Maple Iced Tea Latte

With no sugar and only 1 net carbs, this is a great replacement for your afternoon latte cravings!!

Don’t get me wrong, I know its fun getting a special drink while your out, but if you are serious about your commitments, like me, you don’t want to deviate!! This is so smooth with the added collagen that it is like it has cream in it😋

I love cream, but with this being so low in carbs, it is my “feel-like-to-much-fat-but-it-isn’t” kind of drink. I honestly would rather spend my fat macros on whipping cream, or coconut cream….😍

Ok, so back to the drink😁

Super easy to whip up and filling as the collagen contains 5.5g of protien. Of course feel free to jazz it up with ginger, cinnamon, maybe some cardamon😊

Even use a different tea, maybe plain rooibos, or spice tea! Use what you have on hand and have fun with it! You could even make up 2 batches at once and have the concentrate waiting for you in the fridge!

Here we go!

1st make some tea. You will need 2 bags and a large mug, or use a saucepan and 2 cups boiling water if needed. Steep 8 minutes.

Pour into a blender once cooled enough to sip or it may be too hot for a regular blender! Add 1 cup unsweetened almond milk and 3 pkts stevia. Blend a few seconds.

Add all of the rest of the ingredients to the blender!

I use this brand since its Grass Fed and dissolves easily! Save 25% off of some here at Thrive Market!

A sprinkle of salt…..Himalyan salt preferred!

Plus 2 tsp. Vanilla extract….

Mix well, I just pulsed it a few times😊

Get a quart jar filled halfway with ice.

Pour and enjoy!!

You will probably want another😁
