Mushroom Wisdom Maitake D-Fraction Liquid

Editor's Pick: Mushroom Wisdom Maitake D-Fraction Liquid

This power-packed latte is a better-for-you alternative to coffee shop frozen drinks. If your blender’s not super-powerful, use 1 cup crushed ice instead of the ice cubes. For extra indulgence, add 2 Tbs. of cacao nibs before blending, or top with vegan or regular whipped cream. Tone it down with decaffeinated espresso, or turn it into breakfast with a scoop of vanilla protein powder.
