If you dig through the internet every mushroom coffee drink recipe is just people pouring hot water over Four Sigmatic mushroom coffee packets. This recipe is intended to be a copycat of their drinks for a fraction of the price.
Pre-made mushroom drink packets cost about $2 a serving. This DIY method is under 40 cents a serving (not including the coffee).

On our 9 year wedding anniversary I decided to splurge on mushroom drinks. We were out of town and getting lunch at Whole Foods so my brain told me it was now or never. If I wanted to buy some high dollar mushroom drinks I better do it now ’cause YOLO and vacation and blah blah blah.
Funny thing, the mushroom tea I brought to the counter wouldn’t scan because it was supposed to be removed from their shelf so they gave it to me for free! The second box was caffeine free mushroom hot cocoa packets. Within the first sip I was instantly sold on needing to make a DIY mushroom drink video to share with the world.
By the magic of the internet I crossed paths with Naked Nutrient and they offered to sponsor this post. Shut the front door. This was seriously meant to be 🙂 If you have Amazon Prime then you can order and receive your own Organic Mushroom Powder Blend (not affiliate link) within one day shipping!
A 60g bag of mushroom powder is about $20 and has 60 servings. The expensive packets I bought at Whole Foods were $15 for only 10 servings. Insert crying emoji face here. Just kidding those expensive 10 servings made my day. But this organic 60 serving mushroom blend will make my year!
Random side note: if you’ve ever bought powdered supplements like protein powder then you know the scoop that comes with it does not properly measure out the serving size. Protein powder will say a scoop weights so many grams but it NEVER scoops accurately. My mushroom powder came with a scoop and it actually measures out 1g as the serving size suggests. Round of applause please!
Vegan Mushroom Coffee
Yes this is easy. You’re welcome. Actually, the expensive packets are cool because I think they have freeze dried coffee or instant coffee in them. You can absolutely make homemade mushroom coffee packets with instant coffee! For every serving of coffee add 1/4 ts (1g) mushroom powder to it.
cup of fresh coffee, 1 serving mushroom powder (1/4 ts, 1g) + sweetener & coffee creamer of choice
- Mix mushroom powder into your coffee and drink as usual. ENJOY
Vegan Mushroom Hot Chocolate
Dude hot chocolate is getting me through this winter. Never in my life has that been a thing til now so I’m beyond pumped to have Mushroom Hot Chocolate become the cornerstone of my calories 🙂 So pump!
PS: I make a pint of hot chocolate at a time. 16 oz is my “cup” size. Feel free to cut the cocoa, sweetener and almond milk in half.
2 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk (16 oz), 1/4 ts mushroom powder (1g), 1 TB cocoa powder, 1-2 TB sweetener of choice (syrup or powder, maybe 16 drops if you do stevia???)
- Mix powders together
- Heat almond milk (I microwaved for 3 minutes)
- Stir powders with almond milk. ENJOY
