    Urban Remedy is a brand that has made a name for itself in the health and wellness scene, with its products frequently gracing the shelves of health stores, organic grocers, and Whole Foods. Today, I had the pleasure of trying their Shroom Coffee, a pretty unique concoction that combines cold brew coffee with the power of adaptogens like Lions Mane and Reishi mushrooms. It's also organic, gluten-free, dairy-free, and non-GMO lineup.

    Conclusion: way better than expected!

    The ingredients listed on the label include Cashew Milk (filtered water, cashews), Coconut Nectar, Coffee, Vanilla Extract, Lion's Mane Mushroom Extract Powder, and Reishi Mushroom Extract Powder.

    My first impression of the Shroom Coffee was positive. It had a smooth and velvety texture, which is quite an accomplishment considering it's made with cashew milk and contains mushroom powder. The only minor drawback was a slight clumping issue, likely due to the coconut nectar, that persisted even after vigorous shaking. While this didn't significantly impact the overall experience, it's worth noting and not super visually appealing.

    In terms of flavor, the Shroom Coffee delivered a pleasant surprise. It had a subtle sweetness, thanks to the coconut nectar and vanilla extract, without being overly sugary. There wasn't any hint of mushroom taste, htful pick-me-up.

    Lion's Mane is renowned for its cognitive-enhancing properties, with studies suggesting it may support memory, focus, and overall brain health. Reishi, on the other hand, is celebrated for its adaptogenic and immune-boosting qualities, helping the body better cope with stress and potentially reducing inflammation.

    At $7.99 per can from Whole Foods and a list price of $8.99 on their website, it's undoubtedly more expensive than your average coffee shop iced latte. However, the premium ingredients and the potential health benefits of Lion's Mane and Reishi Mushroom extracts may justify the splurge for health-conscious individuals.

    Cupping Method:I bought it from Whole Foods in Cambridge, MA and drank it the next day.

    I think the thing thats often most telling with these shakes is that I drank the whole thing. Every once in a while when Im at Whole Foods, I pick up one of these types of drinks as a breakfast substitute. I had previously liked Urban Remedys shroom coffee so I gave it a shot.

    Verdict is its pretty good. Taste like a coffee milkshake with a banana blended in. Worked well as fuel for the day, and didnt taste too sweet.

    Only real downside is the aftertaste which really lingers and feels like youre sucking on a banana runt for half an hour. I use that as an excuse to drink more water.

    Not coffee ha ha.

    I think I like the coffee-based Urban Remedy drinks more, although this isn't bad. It's hard for me to get turmeric. I don't love the aftertaste, but some of these drinks are much, much worse. This has good mouthfeel and is very coconutty.

    Cupping Method:Bought a bottle at Whole Foods as a partial meal replacement and drank it over 2 days at home.
