This Coconut Oil Coffee is my latest obsession! Yes you read that right coconut oil coffee!
Ever since I read about the health benefits of the Bulletproof Coffee I have been dying to try it. Bulletproof coffee is essentially coffee blended with grass-fed butter and MCT oil. Bulletproof coffee is meant to replace your breakfast and make you feel focused, and energized. Unfortunately I do not have easy access to grass-fed butter so I gave it a go with just the coconut oil. I feel like I’ve hit the jackpot with this coffee.
Coconut oil adds a hint of sweetness so many times I find there’s no need for additional sweetener. I often add a teaspoon of toasted carob powder which complements the flavour perfectly and further enhances the taste. If you are not a fan of carob add a teaspoon of Organic Cacao . I am hooked on this coconut oil coffee. The combination of caffeine and saturated fat really gives me a great and lasting energy boost.
How to make a coconut oil coffee that doesn’t suck.
The first couple times I tried to make a coconut oil coffee I simply added 1 tablespoon of semi solid coconut oil to my cup of coffee. That was a recipe for disaster! The coconut oil did not emulsify and I just ended up with an oily coffee. I have certainly learnt my lesson. The key to a creamy coconut oil coffee is blending. I recommend you prepare your coconut oil coffee the following way. I used my Nespresso Coffee Machine to brew my favourite Cubania capsule.
If you do not add milk or carob/cacao powder to the coffee then you may skip the microwave step. Simply add your coconut oil to hot coffee and blend. You may also warm the liquid through on the stovetop if you prefer, I often do this.
Adding coconut oil to your coffee is a great way to supercharge and give your body a burst of energy to make it through the day. Not to mention you get all of the other amazing health benefits of coconut! This coconut oil coffee is soooo good. I have even made it for my daughter sans coffee and she loved it!
