Maitake Vanilla-Almond Frozen Latte

Earthy mushrooms and rich espresso pair perfectly in this coffee house-style drink—charged with immune power from maitake extract.

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.
