the recipe i am sharing today is going to take your morning (or afternoon, or evening, i won't judge) mug of coffee to the next level. i have been putting coconut oil in my coffee for a year or more now, but this? this is turning it up a notch. i call it my SUPER COFFEE because it transforms my average cup of joe into a mighty, energizing, fat-burning, kick-starting power juice. it's HEALTHY + TASTY. a liquid gold force to be reckoned with.
what makes this coffee so super? this coffee has antioxidants, anti-inflammatory ingredients, can lower bad cholesterol, promotes heart health, supports joint and bone health, aides in weight management, contributes to a strong immune system and healthy digestion, does good things for your metabolism, and so much more. hello, SUPER COFFEE.
take a few minutes to Google "health benefits of coconut oil," "health benefits of raw turmeric," and "health benefits of collagen peptides." while you're at it, read up on the "healthiest way to drink coffee." all of that research and my findings is what led me to creating this recipe. if i'm going to be drinking coffee every morning (and believe me, i am) it might as well be doing something GOOD for my body.
when you are ready to take your coffee to the NEXT LEVEL, try my SUPER COFFEE recipe:
SUPER COFFEE INGREDIENTS**
// raw (green), organic, fair trade coffee beans, roasted and ground
// organic unrefined cold-pressed virgin coconut oil
// organic raw turmeric powder (not the spice)
// grass fed collagen peptide powder
// organic ground cinnamon (for flavor, optional)
brew a fresh pot of coffee, or a cup or two in a Chemex.
in your favorite coffee mug, pour 1/2 Tbsp coconut oil, 1/2 scoop of turmeric powder*, 1 full scoop of collagen peptide powder, and cinnamon* to taste. add hot coffee. blend well using a handheld immersion blender, or blend in a Magic Bullet. coffee will turn a pretty pumpkin color and have a little coconut oil froth on the top. *play with the amounts until you find the flavor you like best!
cheers and have a SUPER day!
"let me hear in the morning of your steadfast love,
for in you i trust, Lord. make me know the way i should go,
for to you i lift up my soul." -psalm 143:8
