Green Mushroom Smoothie Recipe



Mushrooms have become the craze of functional and tasty foods, including mushroom baconchili, soup, and even delicious cocktails

So, how can get a quick and delicious way to get your greens and functional fungi in a single drink? Well, you are in for a treat. Our green mushroom smoothie recipe is a tasty way to get tasty greens, fruits, nuts, functional ingredients, and adaptogenic mushrooms all in one go, without having to worry about getting all the correct shrooms. 

We’ll also go on some swapouts and different parts of this recipe you can tweak based on your dietary goals or restrictions, so don’t worry; you can personalize this recipe as long as it keeps the three basics. With that out of the way, let’s start this recipe.


Key Takeaways

  • Our green mushroom smoothie recipe has three key components: greens, fruits, and TUNE IN, a powdered drink with the power of adaptogenic mushrooms like lion’s mane and cordyceps.
  • The serving size for this drink can vary anywhere between 20 and 30oz, so make sure to prepare accordingly and adjust the portion to your liking.
  • While you can store this smoothie for up to a day in an airtight container, it is best advised to drink it fresh and right out of the blender.
  • Remember you can swap out ingredients to your dietary needs, like taking out cereals or grains, or switching honey for other sweeteners.
  • The magic behind this smoothie is TUNE IN, a delicious and all-natural drink with adaptogenic ingredients, mushrooms, and nutrients that make consuming functional foods super easy.

What to Know Before You Start

Before we start, there are a couple of things to understand about this mushroom smoothie recipe. The base for this recipe is to mix greens, fruits, and the adaptogenic mushroom powder from TUNE IN, as it will save you time and effort in preparing the ingredients separately.

TUNE IN currently has powerful mushrooms, nootropics, and adaptogenic ingredients, including lion’s mane and cordyceps mushrooms, while greens will give it the fiber you need, and fruit will contribute with vitamins and simple carbohydrates.

So, while we recommend certain ingredients due to taste, we also prepared a small dietary preferences section so you can swap out certain ingredients based on your needs or liking.

The next thing to know is that you’ll have to use your blender on the smoothie setting, and if you are using another type of device, just make sure the “heating” functions are turned off for the smoothie.

Lastly, before we start, we fully recommend drinking this immediately. Since the greens and fruit contain fiber, they can separate from the liquids with time, making it look less appetizing. If this happens, you can always keep it in the fridge and reblend it, but it is always best to drink right after blending for the best results.


Serving Size

This drink usually serves around 20-30 ounces, so make sure to prepare your glass or jug accordingly. You can also double up the recipe if you want a larger portion for more people or cut the ingredients in half the size of these ingredients (except the TUNE IN portion) to give it a try before tweaking certain elements.


Time 

The prep time for this can be less than 10 minutes, including blending and chopping some bigger ingredients (like bananas).


Dietary Preferences

As we mentioned before, this smoothie can be tweaked depending on your current dietary preferences or needs. Let’s go over some ingredients that can be added or swapped out if you don’t want certain ingredients for your intake.

Dairy-Free

This is one of the easiest swaps you can get. We actually recommend this smoothie with almond, soy, or oat milk. In general, you can swap out the almond milk for any non-dairy alternative that’s available and tasty.

Gluten-Free

Our green mushroom smoothie recipe is completely gluten-free, so don’t worry about having to look for buckwheat swaps or other types of flour. The smoothie itself already has a lot of fiber due to the greens and fruit, so there’s no need for any extra gluten-containing ingredients here.

Sugar-Free

Now, while the base recipe is originally sugar-free due to the fruits added, sometimes they cannot be as ripe as we’d wish for. So, while the recipe is sugar-free, you can also add the sweetener of your choice, like dates, honey, agave syrup, or monk fruit.

Vegan

The three key components of our recipe make it naturally vegan, but depending on the extras you add, you might want to swap out a few ingredients. Some people might not want dairy or milk-based products, so almond or other nut-based drinks are available, and you can swap out honey for other sweeteners like monk fruit or agave syrup.

Vegetarian

Lastly, let’s tackle how this recipe can be vegetarian-friendly. This recipe doesn’t need any special tweaking for it to fit a vegetarian dietitian regime, and it can even turn into vegan, as we mentioned above, by swapping up the honey for other sweeteners. 

So, if you want a delicious morning treat to keep your intake of vitamins, minerals, and adaptogenic ingredients in check, this is the right recipe.


How to Store Your Smoothie

The best way to store your smoothie is using a cup with an airtight seal. That said, it might be possible that the fiber from your drink floats while the liquids stay at the bottom. You can give this a second blend to get it back to its original shape, but it is best to drink your smoothie the same day you made it.

Alternatively, you can prep the ingredients in different containers and use them as you need them, only saving the mushroom and adaptogenic powder, TUNE IN, and your favorite liquid medium (juice, milk alternative, or water).

Drink Immediately

While keeping your drink in the fridge for up to a day is possible, the best way to get all your vitamins, minerals, and functional ingredients is to drink your smoothie immediately. 

So it is important to consider this when you make this recipe and the portions, as you might want to cut down the size if you feel you won’t have the time to drink this.


Equipment

For this recipe, you’ll only need a blender and a tall glass or jug. If you are saving it for later, you’ll need an airtight jug or container and keep it in the fridge.


Ingredients 

Jar of VYU TUNE IN.

  • 1 scoop of VYU’s TUNE IN

Optional Sweeteners

Method 

  1. First, make sure to wash and chop all of the non-powder ingredients. You can also prep the bananas and fruits and freeze them the day before.
  2. Put all your ingredients together in the blender and secure the lid.
  3. Start blending until the smoothie has no visible chunks and is smooth in consistency.
  4. Serve and enjoy! Make sure to drink immediately if possible, or keep it in an airtight jug or container and drink it throughout the day.

Final Thoughts

And that’s the recipe for the perfect green mushroom smoothie. It’s the best way to add adaptogenic fungi to your diet without compromising flavor, fiber, vitamins, or any of the delicious ingredients we’ve mentioned above.

Remember that you can swap out ingredients based on your dietary restrictions and that you can swap the fruits or flavors for a different twist. 

If you like meal prepping, you can prepare all the non-liquid ingredients in containers for the week and simply take them in the morning to save yourself some hassle, especially if you plan on using fresh greens and fruits that might need washing, peeling, and chopping.
