4. Chaga Simple Syrup
Chaga simple syrup is easier to make than ever with ChagaNOW. Just whip up a simple syrup by combining ½ cup of water, ½ cup of sugar and heat while stirring until the sugar is dissolved. Then stir in 1-4 servings of ChagaNOW. You can use this simple syrup to flavor cocktails, drizzle over ice cream and bring an immune-boost to your pancakes or waffles. Here's the recipe.
5. Add to Soups and Stews
ChagaNOW can be added to your favorite soup or stew. While it can be added to any soup, I can’t get the idea of a Chaga-Butternut Squash soup out of my head! For a truly Adirondack meal, add your ChagaNOW to a hearty venison stew. Chaga is great for supporting digestion, so whether you’re a morning soup person or an evening soup person, Chaga added to soup can help keep you regular.
6. Enhance your Coffee, Hot Chocolate or Tea
It’s never been easier to boost your beverage! Chaga provides a delicious and well rounded flavor to any beverage. Hot Chaga Chocolate is delicious, for my fellow sweet tooths out there add a dollop of whipped cream and then sprinkle a tiny pinch of ChagaNOW on top, which brings us to the next use…
7. Garnish with ChagaNOW
ChagaNOW is a gorgeous material to behold, it sparkles in the light like black glitter. Garnish your whipped cream, cupcakes, or spooky libations with ChagaNOW. There’s no healthier way to add edible glitter to your goods.
8. Chaga Frosting or Icing
Spiced pumpkin cookies with Chaga frosting! Maple cupcakes with Chaga frosting. Spiced Chai Macarons with a Chaga filling. Is your mouth watering yet? Simply make your favorite frosting or icing recipe and add ChagaNOW when you add your liquid. Then use it to elevate your sweets.
