Happy Frenchie Friday everyone! "Stella" is taking a vacation day... just kidding. She's actually fighting with my laptop right now for space on my lap;)
Today I want to tell you how I take my coffee these days. No dairy and no sweet creamers doesn't have to mean you have to drink your coffee black...which is what I used to think!
I loved Bulletproof Coffee as soon as I tasted it...but these days I'm doing no dairy, so I've tweaked it a bit and it's so tasty I want to share it with you...
Depending on the size of your mug and how much coffee you're making, you can adjust these ingredients to your liking...because I make smaller cups of coffee than most;)
I started using an immersion blender or stick blender because the coconut oil can separate and cause oily droplets in your coffee... so by blending it and emulsifying it, it makes it creamy and frothy instead! Don't freak out about putting coconut oil in your coffee... it tastes amazing and adds a healthy fat that will help you feel full longer! Healthy fats do NOT make you fat. Period. Try it;)
A mason jar works perfect for blending... you just want to get the right size that's large enough so it doesn't splash out. Once you get your amounts down, it'll be quick and easy.
Put these ingredients in the mason jar:(adjust amounts to taste, I put the amount I use for an 8 oz coffee cup in parentheses.)
- brewed coffee (6 oz)
- coconut oil (~1 tsp)
- raw honey I left this out while on the Whole30...still tasted amazing (~1 tsp)
- coconut milk unsweetened, canned, full-fat (~1.5 oz or 3 tbsp)
- cinnamon or Trader Joe's Pumpkin Pie Spice (sprinkle)
Put the immersion blender all the way to the bottom of the jar and turn on high for 20-30 seconds. Pour coffee in your favorite mug! Sprinkle with extra cinnamon and you're done!
This might sound involved to make a cup of coffee, but it's not. Once you get your routine down... it's super quick. I keep my designated mason jar with my coffee cups and the immersion blender is so easy to clean...just rinse it off! Way easier than using a blender.
I hope this enhances your "non-dairy" coffee experience! :)
