For anyone on-the-go, the easiest way to get your daily dose of vitamins and minerals might just be in your breakfast smoothie. And if it can improve your gut health, skin and hair, and energy levels — even better. From supermushrooms, to spicy, organically grown turmeric, and a digestion-friendly blend of enzymes, here are three smoothies that will work for you, long after the cup is empty.

Adaptogenic Chocolate Supershroom Smoothie

When is it okay to have chocolate for breakfast? When it’s blended into an all-natural, supermushroom-packed, nutrient-rich morning smoothie. Wylde One’s adaptogenic Immune Shrooms blend combines Chaga, Reishi, Turkey Tail, Maitake, Shiitake with herbs Astragalus and Ashwagandha to reduce stress, boost immunity and skin health, and give you a nutritious start to the day.

In a blender, combine:

  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 handful of frozen blueberries
  • 1 handful spinach
  • 1 packet of Wylde One Immune Shrooms
  • 1 tbsp cacao powder
  • 1 tbsp flax seeds
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1/2 cup coconut water
  • Optional: 1 pitted medjool date to sweeten

Blend on high for 1-2 minutes until creamy and smooth. Pour into a cup and enjoy. Sprinkle granola or cacao nibs on top for some extra crunch.
