One of my favorite items to order at juice bars are the shots and elixirs. Most juice bars have a variety of immune-boosting, antioxidant-rich shots that you can down in one gulp.
Recently, when Ben and I were in Kauai, we discovered the Kauai Juice Co. It’s truly the best juice bar I’ve ever been to. They make fresh-pressed juice, kombucha, nut milks and elixirs.
The first time we visited this juice bar, we came from a yoga class next door. The yoga instructor was in there and she ordered about 5 different elixirs. One happened to be a very strange concoction that I knew had to be super healthy, but I honestly thought it would taste like dirt.
This shot was called a Reishi River, and she highly recommended it. So, we decided we would give it a try.
Ben and I decided to split one, so we could each have a little taste. (Just in case in tasted like dirt.) Well, we tried it and ordered another one. Then we went back the next day and got another one! We were addicted! It was so good. It literally tasted like brownie batter and there was no chocolate in it!
Now we make our own Reishi Rivers at home and we show you step-by-step how to make it in this video.
A reishi river combines grass-fed colostrum, reishi powder, MCT oil, and honey. These ingredients offer powerful immune-boosting and gut-healing properties.
The quality of ingredients is also very important. You want to make sure you’re using a high quality grass-fed colostrum powder. I’ve tried a few and this one is my favorite.
Check out the recipe below:
Mix all ingredients together and enjoy!

Benefits of Reishi Spore Powder
Reishi Spores are the most concentrated form of Reishi Mushroom that nature gives us. In fact it takes around 1000kg of Reishi Mushroom to make 1- 3kg of Reishi Spores!!
Reishi Spores can be thought of as the pollen of Reishi which the mushroom uses to reproduce itself so it is in fact the Jing or (Life Essence) of the Reishi and contains high concentrations of Triterpenes and Polysaccharides which are the most important substances for our bodies in Reishi. Reishi Spore powder also contains adenosine, thirteen amino acids, Germanium, Selenium, lipopolysaccharides, ascorbic acid, alkaloids and trace minerals.
Reishi is known to be a most potent Superfood or Tonic Herb for our bodies immune system. Reishi has been shown to have profound effects on the human immune system as well as a wide spectrum of life enhancing qualities.
I love discovering nutrient-rich superfoods that support my body but also taste delicious. Do you use reishi or colostrum? I’d love to hear how you incorporate it into your diet. Please share in the comments below.
