When I wake up in the morning I always look forward to my first cup of coffee. Not because I'm addicted to it (okay, maybe I am), but because I enjoy going to my cupboard and picking out my cup or tea cup I will use that day, smelling the scent of coffee as it brews and fills the house with its aroma and then taking that first sip. Hmm... so good!
I used to have my coffee plain, with just sugar and milk. Nothing fancy as I owned no espresso machine. I had my coffee that way for years. Recently I heard about the bulletproof coffee that many people are drinking now. I tried that, but didn't really care for it.
After my failed attempt at enjoying bulletproof coffee I started playing around with my own version. After a few month of my version, I don't like my coffee any other way! My recipe is simple and easy. I brew a dark roast as it has less caffeine and I can drink more of it without a big caffeine high. Then I add the brewed coffee into the blender with milk to preference, a 1/2 teaspoon of pure organic coconut oil, sugar (I like my coffee sweet) then I blend that together for about 50 seconds until the sugar, coconut oil and coffee have really mixed. When I pour it out into my cup there is a pretty foam on top to which I sprinkle cinnamon on as cinnamon has great health benefits and makes my coffee taste that much better.
This is what I drink in the mornings and it's what I will be drinking once we hit the road in our airstream. If you try it, let me know how you like it or if you made it your way.
PS. I do not like coconut oil in any form, but have fallen in love with it in my coffee and the only way that I enjoy coconut oil. My next goal is to fall in love with coconut water, wish me luck!
