Beyond the brews – four recipes using our functional Flow State blends
Despite the longstanding popularity of our initial mushroom brew, the maca mocha with shrooms, we feel inspired on the regular to think outside the mug and explore the versatility of our functional mushroom blends.
Yes- they are damn tasty in your morning elixir to supercharge your day, and yes, we enjoy them in this liquid form on the regular.
However, we wanted to plant some seeds of creativity and get you thinking of the many ways you can enjoy your flow state blends and to spread the mushy love throughout your diet and your day.
Because our mushroom extracts are dual extracted, heating them up in cooking doesn’t affect the nutritional profile. Win win!
Here are 3 ways to incorporate your Flow State into your breakfast, lunch, and dinner!
Hope you enjoy these simple recipes!
Afternoon pick-me-up peanut butter fudge
Mmmm when we discovered this recipe, we started filling our freezer with glass jars of these delectable chocolate delights. Smooth, creamy, the perfect balance of bitter and sweet, and full of mineral-dense cacao and our OG functional mushroom 4-blend.
You can either use chocolate moulds for this recipe or pour the fudge to settle in a baking-paper lined small baking dish (the smaller the dish the thicker the pieces- if your smallest baking dish is 8X8, I would double the recipe). You may want to double the recipe anyway as you’ll quickly wish you had more.
¼ cup smooth peanut butter
3 Tbsp maple syrup
2 Tbsp cacao
2 Tbsp melted coconut oil
½ tsp vanilla essence
2 tsp Flow State 4-blend
Pinch of salt
Mix all ingredients in a bowl with a spatula until completely smooth. Gently pour (or use a spoon- depending on bowl) into silicone moulds or into lined baking dish. Place in freezer for 3-4 hours until solid (moulds should easily pop out). While firm, slice or place moulded fudgy bites into a jar and store in the freezer. Enjoy anytime you need a wholesome afternoon pickup.

For dinner, I couldn’t decide between 2 recipes I wanted to share, so here you go!
Flow State PM blend 2 ways, for all your evening entertaining needs!
One of our favorite summer meals is sautéed fresh veggies, soba noodles, tofu, and this amazing Asian dressing! Super simple and makes for a delightfully colorful and healthy dinner, which can utilize whatever veggies are fresh and in season! Get creative and use whatever’s in your fridge, garden, or from the farmer’s market.
3 Tbsp tamari (or low sodium soy sauce)
2 Tbsp rice vinegar
1 tsp sesame oil
2 cloves garlic, minced or crushed
2 tsp maple syrup
1 tsp Flow State PM blend
Chuck everything together in a jar and shake it up (or use your sexy whisk from our Flow State bundle)! Serve over soba noodles and lightly sauteed veggies and tofu. An easy meal to chuck together quickly! Garnish with sesame seeds for extra presentation points.
This is a regular go-to evening meal for us when we’re not sure what to eat. Can be served with white basmati rice or fresh bread. We’re also big fans of those instant organic papadums! The warming spices in this dahl are anti-inflammatory, support digestion, and are a super nourishing way to support your body as it winds down for the evening. You can also add a couple chopped carrots and finely cut spinach or silverbeet to bring some veggies into the mix.
1 cup red lentils (rinsed and soaked for 1-4 hours)
1 Tbsp coconut oil (or ghee if you’re into it)
1 large finely chopped onion
3-4 cloves garlic, minced
1-2 inches fresh ginger, minced
4 cups water or veggie broth (we like Rapunzel organic veggie stock powder)
½ tsp cumin seeds + ½ tsp black mustard seeds (can omit if not on hand)
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp ground turmeric (or fresh minced if you’ve got it!)
¼ tsp cardamon powder
¼ tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp cayenne (optional- if you like it hot!)
2 tsp Flow State P.M. blend
2 Tbsp tomato paste or puree
¼ cup coconut cream or milk
Salt and pepper to taste
If you don’t have time to soak your lentils, just rinse the crap out of them in a strainer.
In a medium sized pot on medium heat, add coconut oil, and cumin and mustard seeds, if using. Once they start popping, add onion. Sautee until soft. Add ginger and garlic, sauté until fragrant. Add cumin, coriander, turmeric, cardamon, cinnamon, and cayenne if using. Add a couple Tbsp of water if starting to dry out, until it forms a colorful and fragrant paste like texture. Add rinsed lentils, water or veggie stock, coconut cream, tomato paste, and Flow State. Let it come to a boil, and reduce heat to a simmer. Stir regularly until lentils are soft. Add salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy!

As you can probably tell, you can basically add our Flow State blends to anything. We add it to pizza sauces, salad dressings, soups, satay sauce, hummus, and raw deserts. I hope you’re feeling inspired to get creative in the kitchen and expand the scope of your flow state blends from smoothies and hot drinks (but keep doing that too they’re badass delicious, we know).
Mush love from the Flow State kitchen,
Hi guys, love the recipe ideas !! As a very new shroom-ie founder, I was wondering if you can have too much shrooms per day, and if so, what’s the limit?
Thanks, much love, Kim xoxo
