You are probably one of those that feel confused and even disgusted by the thought of adding fat and oil to your cup of coffee.
You would perhaps rather buy some non-fat coffee alternative, such as French Vanilla coffee creamer, and forget about the fact that its third ingredient is palm oil. However, we are here to convince you to stop counting calories and start improving your health instead!
If you add coconut oil to your cup of coffee, it will not cause weight gain, but it will boost your metabolism and help you burn calories instead!
This oil is high in medium-chain fatty acids, which are differently metabolized than long-chain fatty acids, found in other oils.
Researchers have found that the consumption of 1 teaspoon of medium chain fats (such as coconut oil) daily boosts energy expenditure by 5%, or up to 120 calories daily.
Also, it does not make your coffee greasy, but it creates a delicious and healthy creamy drink, and won’t cool down the coffee! It also preserves the strength of the coffee and does now water it down.
You can sweeten it with some honey, and enrich the flavor with vanilla and cinnamon.
Start drinking this coffee combined with a healthy breakfast every morning, and you will energize the body, and significantly improve your health and appearance!
This coffee is made a combination of 1-2 tablespoons grass-fed butter, 1-2 tablespoons of Brain Octane or XCT oil (these are 18x and 6x stronger than coconut oil), and 1-2 cups of coffee mixed in a blender.
This recipe has a delicious taste due to the grass-fed butter, which is 100% pure butterfat, and it contains no sugar, GMOs, and gluten. Grass-fed butter raises the good cholesterol levels and thus reduces the risk of heart disease.
It is high in Vitamin K2, which supports bone health and lowers the risk of developing osteoporosis.
The other ingredient, Brain Octane, is distilled from coconut oil, so it is rich in lauric acid that has potent antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal properties. It energizes the body and mind, improves the cognitive performance, and helps the body to burn fat.
Coconut Oil Coffee Creamer- Recipe
- 3/4 cup coconut oil, organic
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder, organic
- 1 tablespoon cocoa powder, organic (optional!)
- 1/2 cup raw honey ( leave it out if you do not like your coffee sweet)
In a bowl, mix all the ingredients, and whisk them together well until you get a homogeneous mixture. Transfer it to a glass jar with a sealed lid.
You should initially brew 2 cups of your favorite (fair-trade, organic) coffee. Then, while it is hot, add 1-2 tablespoons of the coconut oil coffee creamer.
Blend the mixture in a blender for 5 seconds. If you like, you can also add a teaspoon of grass-fed butter for more creaminess and even richer flavor.
