5 Tasty Recipes For Magic Mushrooms And Truffles

6 min

We at Zamnesia just love yummy magic truffles and mushrooms—they are earthy and mushy, chewy, and even a little spicy. But we understand not everyone is that fond of fungus, so we came up with 5 tasty recipes to dress them up.

There aren’t many psychonauts who have good things to say about the taste of magic mushrooms. But don’t let the taste of them spoil your fun when you’re up for a shroom adventure. You can mask the taste of magic mushrooms with these tasty recipes.

The Taste Of Magic Mushrooms

No doubt about it, magic mushrooms or truffles can make for an awesome psychedelic experience. If it just wasn’t for their taste! For some, shrooms have an earthy, metallic taste that’s like eating a spoonful of dirt. Yuck! For others, they taste like eating bark from a tree or stale popcorn. Their chewy consistency also doesn’t help things…

With the taste of shrooms somewhere between "yikes!" and "absolutely awful", the best way to avoid starting off your shroom experience all grossed out is to mask their taste. Some grind them into a powder and stir them into a glass of OJ, or they take them with some hot sauce. But for even better (and tastier!) ways to take your shrooms, find out how you can integrate them into awesome magic mushroom recipes!

5 Tasty Recipes For Your Shrooms And Truffles

So, now that you know how to prepare and be safe for your mushroom trip, let’s take on the unpleasant shroom taste with five of the tastiest recipes for your shrooms and truffles!

Important note: psilocybin degrades at high temperatures and can thus make your mushrooms less potent. If you’re working with shrooms in your kitchen, only add them once your foods have well cooled down. This way, you can enjoy your mushrooms’ full potency.

Magic Mushroom Chocolate

Magic Mushroom Chocolate

The Aztecs already enjoyed “xocolatl” (chocolate) and its energising effect, thanks to the stimulating compound theobromine, which literally means “food of the gods”. With our easy magic mushroom chocolate recipe, you can turn your mushies into a godly, energising snack!


  • Dried magic mushrooms or truffles
  • Several bars of store-bought chocolate (dark is best)
  • Large saucepan
  • Glass bowl
  • Sharp knife
  • Chocolate moulds (alternatively, non-stick baking tray)

Magic Truffle Pesto

Magic Truffle Pesto

A great pesto with strong flavour that does a very good job of masking the not-too-pleasant taste of your mushrooms. Great as a dip with toasted pita bread and/or carrot sticks.


  • Magic truffles or magic mushrooms (fresh is best, but dry works too)
  • Kitchen blender
  • 2 cups fresh herbs to taste (parsley, basil, coriander, etc.)
  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese (vegan version: substitute for nutritional yeast)
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts or pine nuts
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp. lemon juice
  • Pita bread, carrot sticks, tortilla chips, etc. for dipping
  • Himalayan pink salt (or regular) to taste
  • Fresh ground black pepper to taste


  1. Add all the ingredients into your blender. Process until just a little chunky.

  2. Ready! Put into small serving bowls for dipping. Enjoy!

This recipe isn’t just super-easy; as there is no heat involved, none of the psilocybin in the truffles will degrade, so you can enjoy shrooms with maximum potency.

Xoconacatl: Magic Mushroom Energy Balls

Xoconacatl: Magic Mushroom Energy Balls

Awesome magic mushroom (or truffle) energy balls. The Aztec word for chocolate is xocolatl, and the word for magic mushrooms is teōnanacatl, so we named these xoconacatl. Chocolate is already great at masking the mushroom taste, but you can add all kinds of other tasty stuff to these choco balls to make them really, really tasty.


  • Magic mushrooms or truffles (dried)
  • 150g quality chocolate with high (80%+) cocoa content
  • Non-stick baking paper
  • Extra ingredients: dried fruit pieces, crushed nuts, marshmallows, cornflakes…
  • Salt
  • 100g organic, cold-pressed coconut coil


  1. Chop truffles into very small pieces or use a truffle grinder.

  2. Chop up your extra ingredients and mix in a bowl with the chopped truffles.

  3. Create a double boiler by filling a saucepan partially with water and fitting a heat-safe bowl on top. Gently melt your coconut oil in the bowl as the water simmers below. Don’t let it boil. You can lower the melting point of the oil by adding some salt.

  4. Gently stir in the chocolate until it's completely melted and your mix is smooth.

  5. Wait for the mix to cool, then stir in truffles and other ingredients. Keep stirring so that everything is evenly distributed in the mix.

  6. As soon as the mix starts to solidify, form it into bite-sized balls. Place your choco truffle balls on a tray covered with non-stick paper.

  7. Place in the fridge for several hours.

You can store xoconacatl balls in a container for quite some time if kept in a cool, dark place.

Bonus: Magic Mushroom Capsules

Magic Mushroom Capsules

Maybe you don’t want to cook, or maybe you don’t like the taste of magic mushrooms at all. No worries; there is another good way to enjoy shrooms without the taste: put them into capsules!

For magic mushroom capsules, you need a capsule machine and the matching size gelatine or vegetarian cellulose capsules. You can get both of these at Zamnesia. We recommend size “00”, which holds about 750mg of powder per capsule.


  1. Make sure your magic mushrooms or truffles are very dry.

  2. Using a coffee grinder, grind your mushrooms into a very fine powder.

  3. Use the capsule machine according to the instructions to fill the capsules with your powder.

Tip: As the capsules first need to dissolve, the magic mushrooms will take a little longer to kick in as compared to just eating them. But you can speed this up by taking a needle and poking some small holes in the capsules beforehand.

You can use a digital scale to weigh how much is in each capsule. This way, you can more precisely dose your magic mushrooms.

Tripping On Magic Mushrooms: What To Consider

Tripping On Magic Mushrooms: What To Consider

  • Set and setting

You can get the most out of your mushroom experience if you’re well-prepared and take them safely and responsibly. Most importantly, if you want a great experience, mind how “set and setting” can play a big role in how your trip will go. Set and setting is an expression that comes from the flower power era. It means your mood and mindset (set) and your environment and surroundings (setting). So, if you’re anxious, depressed, or are simply in a bad mood, or you don’t feel good vibes at a place, your trip will amplify these negative emotions and will likely not turn out well.

  • Take the proper dose

When you’re taking magic mushrooms or truffles, it’s important to take the proper dose. If you want to get the most out of psychedelics, it is always better to start with lower doses and then gradually work yourself up. Doing “heroic doses” right from the start is foolish and may even be dangerous. The proper dose depends on several things, like your body weight and whether you’re taking dried or fresh mushrooms or truffles. With our Magic Mushroom Dosage Calculator, you can easily find the best dose with just a few clicks.

  • Get a trip-sitter

Lastly, and particularly if you’re new to taking shrooms, you should have a trip-sitter. A trip-sitter is a trusted person who will be there to watch over you as you’re tripping. Should your trip go bad for whatever reason, the trip-sitter can calm you down and help turn your trip around. The trip-sitter should be experienced with the effects of psychedelics, but they need to be sober while overseeing your trip.
