How do you like your coffee? Have you ever considered adding coconut oil or any other type of fat to it? if this grosses you out, maybe you should just finish reading this article.
Most of you like to buy fat-free coffee alternatives. Vanilla coffee creamer maybe? If this is your favorite, maybe you should know that its third ingredient is palm oil. Instead of counting calories and using this type of creamers, we suggest that you try our own version.
Adding coconut oil to your coffee won’t make you fat, but will stimulate your metabolism and turn your body’s calorie burning mode on.
Coconut oil is rich in medium-chain fatty acids. Unlike long-chain fats from other oils, your body metabolizes these in a different way. By taking one teaspoon of coconut oil (or any other oil rich in medium-chain fats) every day, you boost your energy expenditure by 5% and burn 120 calories more than you used to before.
The oil won’t make your coffee greasy, and will turn it into a tasty and healthy creamy drink. No, it doesn’t cool down your coffee. Coconut oil preserves the strength of the coffee, and won’t water it down.
Add honey to sweeten it. Vanilla and cinnamon can improve its flavor.
Drink your coffee along with a healthy breakfast every morning to boost your energy, improve your overall health and look better.
Here’s a nice suggestion for you.
For your coffee, you need 1-2 tablespoons of grass-fed butter, 1-2 tablespoons of Brain Octane of XCT oil (these are 18x/6x stronger than coconut oil), and 1-2 cups of coffee prepared in a blender.
This coffee tastes great due to the butter. You get 100% pure butterfat, and no sugar, GMOs and gluten. Grass-fed butter elevates good cholesterol levels, thus reducing the risk of heart disease.
Vitamin K2 is important for your bones. It also reduces the risk of osteoporosis.
Brain Octane is distilled from coconut oil. It’s packed with lauric acid, known for its strong antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal effect. Brain Octane energizes your body and mind, fixes your cognitive performance, and enhances the fat-burning process.
You can also try the following recipe, and your coffee will never ever have the same taste again:
Coconut oil coffee creamer
- 3-4 coconut oil, organic
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1 tsp cinnamon powder, organic
- 1 tbsp cocoa powder, organic (optional)
- ½ cup raw honey (optional)
Whisk the ingredients into a bowl until everything is well combined. Transfer the creamer into a glass jar with an airtight lid.
First, brew 2 cups of your favorite organic coffee. Add 1-2 tablespoons of the creamer while it’s still hot.
If you like butter, ad a teaspoon of butter for extra creaminess. Blend for 5 seconds, and enjoy!
