Now that I’m “older and wiser,” and my priorities have shifted from “must be skinny” to “must to healthy,” I know that adding fat to your diet is not going to make you fat. Coconut oil, in particular, actually boosts your metabolism and helps burn calories!
Coconut Oil, unlike most oil, contains medium-chain fatty acids, instead of long-chain fatty acids (2). Medium chain fatty acids are metabolized differently than long-chain, which leads to a beneficial boost in metabolism (3). In this study, 1 to 2 tablespoons of medium chain fats (eg. coconut oil) per day increased energy expenditure by 5% — this totals to 120 calories per day.
But regardless of the health benefits, I’ve been adding coconut oil to my coffee for a couple years now because it just tastes SO good!
It doesn’t make your coffee greasy or coconut-y as one might think. Instead, this coconut oil coffee creamer will provide you with a rich and creamy coffee that is perfectly sweetened with honey and flavoured with cinnamon and vanilla. NO palm-oil, No preservatives, and No artificial sweeteners!
Pair this coffee with a nutritious breakfast and you’ve set yourself up for a pretty great day!
More Reasons why I LOVE my Coconut Oil Coffee Creamer:
This is not Bulletproof® Coffee, which you may have read about, too. Bulletproof® coffee contains 1-2 tbsp. grass fed butter, 1-2tbs of Brain Octane or XCT oil (these are 18x and 6x stronger than coconut oil, with no flavor), and 1-2 cups of coffee – all blended in a blender. Although I now know that fat is good for you, consuming them in this quantity can have it’s downfalls!
The ratios that I use are to my preferred sweetness and flavor. If you don’t like your coffee sweet, then leave out the honey or start using less.
Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl and stir or whisk together until they’re well combined.
Store in a glass jar with a sealed lid.
Brew your favorite (fair-trade, organic!) cup of coffee (about 2 cups).
Add 1-2 tbsp. of coconut oil coffee creamer to your hot coffee.
At this point, you can also add a teaspoon of grass-fed butter, which I like to do if I have it on hand. This is totally optional and isn’t part of the creamer concoction, but it will enhance the creaminess and flavor!
Using a blender or mini bullet blender, blend the coffee + creamer on high for about 5 seconds.
Pour into your special mug and enjoy
