Easy keto and paleo chocolate almond cups recipe | with added medicinal mushrooms!

We love healthy treat recipes but they’ve got to be easy to make! We get it, sometimes it’s fun to go all out and make the show stopper dessert. But we prefer to keep things super simple. And this is why we love this easy keto chocolate almond cups recipe. 

Because it’s the easiest healthy keto sweet treat recipe in the history of ever. Ok, we don’t know this for sure… but we just want to emphasise the easy factor.

It’s filled with some of our all-time favourite ingredients but we added something a little extra for this recipe. 

We added Teelixir Immune Defence Mushroom Blend.

And when you read about the benefits you’ll understand why we added it! This special little supplement is the ultimate supplement for gut healing and immunity-boosting.

It’s got 8 different kinds of superfood medicinal mushrooms: Agaricus blazei, Chaga sclerotia, Cordyceps militaris, Lion’s Mane, Maitake, Red Reishi, Shiitake and Turkey Tail.

If you’ve been looking to add a mushroom supplement this one is a great option as it has so many different kinds in one supplement. 

Teelixir Immune Defence Mushroom Blend is a uniquely balanced blend of eight certified organic mushroom extracts. Together they work to build and fortify the strength of the body’s defence shields.

This potent adaptogenic blend boosts immunity, increases energy, improves the gut, strengthens the mind, helps maintain peak performance.  It promotes a healthy response to physical, mental, and environmental stress factors.

What is an adaptogen?

You might have read the above and be wondering what the heck is adaptogenic!?  You’ve definitely heard of adaptogens before if you’re into health and wellness, and for good reason!

When you take adaptogenic herbs you’re taking a supplement to help your body deal with stress. These adaptogenic herbs, roots and plants… and mushrooms are not actually a new thing.

They’ve been used for hundreds of years in traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic healing.

Dr. Brenda Powell, co-medical director of the Center for Integrative and Lifestyle Medicine at the Cleveland Clinic’s Wellness Institute says “Adaptogens may tweak hormone production and physiological responses to stress to ensure that your body (from your mind to your immune system to your energy levels) functions as it should.”

This is why we love Teelixir and their amazing products.

What do you add Teelixir Immune Defence Mushroom Blend to?

Mostly we add it to our morning smoothies because it’s just so easy. 

But you can add it to your coffee, tea, granola and milk, you can also stir into soup, curries, veggies, casseroles. Pretty much if there is something a little liquid-y, you can add it.

Yes, water also works (haha). But it does have an earthy, bitter taste… so we like adding it to other stuff so we don’t even know it is there! Obviously a great choice is this easy keto chocolate almond cups recipe. 

Easy keto chocolate almond cups recipe. 

As we mentioned above we LOVE this recipe because it’s just so easy!

You know we love inventing and creating our own recipes, sometimes we see a picture of some drool-worthy treat on Pinterest or Instagram and we want to try it out (just for fun!).

We go to check out the recipe and then look at the essay of an ingredient list or see 3 too many links in the recipe linking to ANOTHER recipe. Or it is described as keto then includes an ingredient that has added sugar… even if it’s a small amount we prefer to use alternative sweeteners.

So off we go and make a Merrymaker recipe. Guaranteed, the recipe is going be simple and oh so easy.
