This is an amazing rejuvenation smoothie based on my recipe from the Brain Boost Diet Book. I have include lion’s mane mushroom powder which has been studied for its ability to support neuron health and growth. You can also find mixed medicinal mushroom powders which are equally delicious. Choose a high quality coffee or alternatively Yerba mate tea or green tea if you prefer. If Caffeine is a problem use decaf or dandelion coffee or chicory coffee.
Preparation Time : 5 minutes
