Hey, y’all! This is a quick post to introduce you to my new fave morning coffee. My two besties, Dana and Andrea, and I have gone paleo as of a few months now. And since then I’ve learned so many of my friends have embraced the paleo lifestyle, some completely, some only on weekdays and some are just leaning towards it. All have declared how much better they feel and, here comes the lagniappe, how much better they look. Everything from shedding unwanted pounds to the quality of their skin, paleo seems to be one of the more healthful choices of the day. I was a fan of almond milk in my coffee until a few months back during one of our Girl’s Weekend when Andrea introduced us to a teaspoon or two of high-quality coconut in our coffee. It was delicious! But the oil was never fully incorporated and I know I’m über fussy but I truly cannot enjoy a cup of coffee with a spoon hanging out. Sorry, but it’s who I am. So in discussing this we took it a step further by zipping the combination in a mixer and voila! I wish I had taken a photo of the three of us. It was early morning, the sun was barely up and we were all still in our nightgowns, with bed-head, no makeup, blown away at the creamy, frothy libation before us. The foam on top had to be at least an inch thick and stayed in place just like a conventional latte. One of the few times we were all speechless. It was heaven! And here it is. This drink can be made with an immersion blender, conventional blender or Magic Bullet. If a Magic Bullet is used, don’t twist the cup to lock it in place or you’ll end up with hot coffee all over you, the counter, the floor and any nearby cabinets. I speak from experience. Just hold the cup down and pulse it. I don’t advise heating the coffee with the coconut oil in the microwave as the oil loses much of its nutritional value. Stove top is best.
Oh, and if you enjoy sweetener in your coffee, go ahead! But try it first without and see if don’t enjoy it.
