I LOVE coffee. I originally tried adding coconut oil to my coffee when I was eliminating dairy from my diet. I love the taste so much now that it’s hard to have coffee any other way!
There are many benefits of coconut oil but here are a few of my favourite reasons for adding it to my coffee in the morning;
- it increases satiety
- it decreases the coffee caffeine spike
- it is energizing
- it boosts brain power
Once your coffee is made, throw it in a blender (make sure your blender is able to release heat), with a good heaping teaspoon of coconut oil. Sometimes, I throw in a small heap of ghee too (but it is not needed). Blend on medium intensity for 15-30 seconds and you should have a rich, creamy, delicious coffee. Finally, I usually top it with cinnamon because it helps regulate blood glucose.
