Dope + Shroomy Cocoa Ghee

Belly of the Sun

Dope + Shroomy Cocoa Ghee

$39.00

With ingredients known to support harmony, mood, immunity, pleasure, and cognition, Dope + Shroomy is a rich, delicious, chocolately delight that deeply nourishes. Five medicinal mushrooms offer up their adaptogenic, immunomodulating properties (helping to cultivate our immune system’s resilience over the long-term), mucuna pruriens – also referred to as the “dopamine bean” – helps our bodies release more of the “happiness hormone” that connects us to our pleasure centers, cacao brings us into our heart space and is a potent mood-enhancer, and raw local honey supports immunity and is rich in cell-protective antioxidants. With a flavor profile that is perfectly balanced with a sweet dose of honey, we love to dive into Dope + Shroomy on toast, blended into a coffee/hot tonic, as frosting, or simply by the spoonful!

Belly of the Sun’s ghee is handcrafted on an open flame, per tradition, and made in small batches to ensure perfection. Co-created with USDA-certified organic, vat-cultured butter from local Northern California family dairies committed to pasture-raised practices, Belly of the Sun ghee is incredibly nutrient-dense: loaded with vitamins A, D, E and K, conjugated linolenic acid (which is indicated to slow the progression of heart disease and some types of cancer), butyric acid - a fatty acid that is deeply supportive of the gut's microbiome and gastrointestinal health, and Omega 3 and Omega 9 fatty acids, which have been shown as crucial to proper hydration and mama and baby’s health during pregnancy and lactation (Omega 3s are particularly depleted during this time). And with a smoke point of up to 480 degrees, this kitchen staple is as nourishing and nutritional as it is versatile.  

8oz

handcrafted ghee,* cacao,* mucuna pruriens,* 5 dual-extracted mushrooms:* reishi, chaga, lions mane, turkey tail + cordyceps, and raw local honey

With a flavor profile that is rich, chocolatey and earthy (perfectly balanced with a sweet dose of honey), try it on toast, blended into your coffee/hot tonic, as frosting, or simply enjoy by the spoon!

Founded in 2021 by Sheerlie Ryngler, Belly of the Sun found its origins in an herbal ghee making class offered by the creators of Kosmic Kitchen at the Spirit Weaver's Gathering in the summer of 2017. A tad obsessed with creating ghee ever since, Sheerlie infuses her training as a folk herbalist into her line: offering next-level botanical ghee in which she sources plants + herbs from local farmers (and soon her own medicinal herb garden!). Crafted in a commercial kitchen utilizing exclusively stainless steel equipment (Sheerlie is also a Food Safety Manager in the National Registry of Food Safety Professionals), Belly of the Sun ghee is the manifestation of Sheerlie's wholehearted belief in the power of food as medicine...and she was delighted to discover that clarified butter (semneh) is an ancient tradition from her own matrilineal Moroccan heritage.
