ICED COCONUT TRUNORTH CHAGA TEA

If you don’t love the flavour of chaga by itself, mixing it with a few other ingredients will probably do the trick. Chaga is an acquired taste, so it’s not uncommon for new drinkers to want a recipe that dilutes the flavor to a degree.

Chaga has a natural vanilla taste, but adding some vanilla extract will bring out the flavor. If you have some TruNorth chaga ice cubes, you can add them to this drink or even blend them for a sweet treat on a hot summer day, like this iced coconut chaga tea recipe from Allison Smith.
