Lion’s Mane Chai Elixir

Lion’s Mane is essentially mother nature’s gift to your nervous system. These medicinal mushrooms contain two nerve growth factors (hericenones and erinacines) which stimulate the regeneration and remyelination of nerves. These compounds help improve memory and cognition, and also show promise in the treatment of many conditions such as dementia, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, peripheral neuropathy, brain and spinal cord injuries, anxiety and depression.

Harmonic Arts’ Lion’s Mane Dual Extract Powder
is a convenient way to incorporate the benefits of Lion’s Mane into your life! The 
dual extract mushroom line is superior in that it uses both a water and alcohol extraction method to derive more medicinal benefits from the mushrooms than just a steam extraction alone. These extractions are more bioavailable for the body, meaning you will be getting more medicinal benefit out of the mushrooms. Not only does the Lion’s Mane Dual Extract Powder taste good, but it mixes easily into drinks like coffee or tea, stirred into oatmeal, added to smoothies or blended into a herbal elixir tonic like the following recipe.

This Lion’s Mane Chai Elixir is a creamy and delicious way to enjoy the benefits of this incredible mushroom.



  • Start by simmering 1.5 Tbsp of the chai blend in 500ml of water on low-medium heat for about 20-30 minutes, for a strong chai flavour
  • Strain off the tea and pour into a blender
  • Add the Lion’s Mane powder, coconut cream, tocotrienols, coconut butter and honey to the blender.
  • Blend on high speed for about 30 seconds
  • Pour into your favourite mug and sprinkle cinnamon and cardamom powder to top.

Elevated Donut Bites

Truth time – I made these healthy donut bites specifically so I could use the Elevate Elixir Blend. I’m obsessed. Ever since the weather turned, I haven’t been able to get enough of its creamy, rich, cardamom flavour! Last year it was our Activate Elixir Blend I put in everything, but this year it’s Elevate. I use it in my coffee, hot almond mylk, breakfast oats and most recently my baking.  If one of the other elixir mixes is your current favorite you can substitute it in favour of mine.elevated donut bites


⅔ cup rolled oats

⅔ cup dates (de-pitted)

⅔ cup nuts (soak for 1-4 hours and then rinse) – I used cashews

Pinch of salt

2 tablespoons coconut oil

2 tablespoons maple syrup

⅛ teaspoon vanilla powder

.1 teaspoon Elevate elixir

½ teaspoon 5 Mushroom Blend (or another mushroom powder)

To make the dough:

Add oats, dates, nuts, elevate, mushroom powder and salt to a blender or food processor and blend until the ingredients have turned into a moist dough.

Ball the dough into the size of your choice (I made bite size) and place on a tray covered in parchment paper in the freezer for 20 minutes

To make the glaze:

In a pot, melt the coconut oil over medium heat on stove

Once melted, turn off heat

Immediately add vanilla powder and maple syrup

Whisk together and transfer to bowl

To Finish:

Remove donut bites from freezer

Roll each donut bite in the  glaze

Place back on parchment paper

Once all bites are covered in glaze, place in freezer for 10 minutes

(If you have leftover glaze, repeat above process)

After the the glaze has frozen on your scrumptious Elevated Donut Bites, you can transfer them to a  sealed container and keep in fridge.

I was inspired by a recipe from This Rawsome Vegan Life  which I then elevated with a few awesome Harmonic Arts products!

Iced Maca Mylk

It’s August and we are well into the summer season. This month’s days are still long and usually hotter than the months before and the months to come.

Depending on your circumstances the summer has been packed with music, camping, friends, festivals and parties. Or maybe it’s been filled with summer camps, water fights, children screaming and gardening. Or a little of both;)  Either way the heat of the sun and the splendour of the season can be taxing and you may be feeling fatigued and low on energy.

If you’re in need of a cold pick me up then look no further! This chocolatey, cold use of this superfood will cool you down and give you that extra boost of energy to keep enjoying your summer!

1-2 tablespoon cacao powder

1 teaspoon maca

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

The Perfect Smoothie to Start Your Day

“I was asked at a Nutrient Dense Eating class recently to give up my daily smoothie recipe so I put to paper exactly what my first meal of the day is. I usually start with a glass of room temperature water with a half teaspoon of apple cider vinegar to prepare my digestion for food.  Then I sip the Full Meal Deal smoothie before my exercise and yoga routine.

The Breakfast Jam Jar

Weekday mornings can be pretty hectic; dragging yourself out of bed, getting ready for work, dogs to feed, kids and traffic- trying to fit in a nutritious breakfast can at times  seem downright impossible!

Enter this little savior: The Breakfast Jam Jar.

A breakfast jam jar takes 5 minutes to prepare and is an easy way to start your day off with an abundance of nutrients, fibre and energy. By preparing the jar the night before the oats will be more easily digested and allow for better absorption. This recipe is my Harmonic Arts inspired version of a jam jar- the majority of these ingredients are available on our website or in store.  You can be as creative and picky as you like with this – use your imagination!

Here  are a few of the many nutrients and benefits packed into this particular breakfast jar:

Magnesium, Fibre,  Manganese, Protein, Omega 3 and 6, Antioxidants, Iodine, Trace minerals and B Vitamins



3/4 Cup organic whole rolled oats

1/2 Cup milk or milk alternative (I used almond milk)ingredients


Hemp hearts


Sea Veg Blend



Activate superfood blend

Flax seed

Chia seed

Raw honey



Coconut shavings

Cacao nibs (I ran out and used chocolate chips!)




Place oats in first and then add other ingredients as you please.

You can add bananas and/or fruit to the top.

Pour almond milk into the jam jar.

Close lid.

Place in fridge.



In the morning amidst the hectic hustle just grab and go!

It’s easy, tastes like a (guilt free) dessert and is incredibly  filling.  Enjoy!
