Adaptogenic mushroom coffee popsicles? Yes, my friend, quite the mouthful of words, but trust me on this one. I’m absolutely in love with Four Sigmatic’s mushroom coffees, so I was through the moon when afforded the opportunity to develop a recipe for the brand. I’ve become obsessed with making coconut milk popsicles and coffee is one of my favorite ice cream flavors, so for me, it was a no-brainer to craft together a frozen coffee treat.
What makes Four Sigmatic coffee so awesome, is the addition of adaptogenic mushrooms such as reishi, cordyceps, chaga and lion’s mane. For these pops, I used the coffee with chaga and cordyceps. While their exact functions are a little different, together these mushrooms are known for improving your body’s ability to respond to stress, improving brain function, skin health, liver health, digestion and more.
If you’re not into the idea of mushrooms in your coffee, fear not! These pops can easily be made with a couple of teaspoons of regular instant coffee. Heck, they can even be made with decaf instant coffee if you’re watching your caffeine intake. Either way, this is a ridiculously satisfying way to make it through those steamy summer evenings and is definitely a recipe you should make ASAP.
