Coconut Oil Coffee Creamer- recipe
– 3/4 cup coconut oil
– 1 teaspoon Ceylon cinnamon powder
– 1/2 cup raw honey
– 1 tbsp. raw cacao powder (optional)
– The ratios for this recipe can be adjusted to your taste, so, in case you don’t like your coffee sweet, you can skip or cut back the honey.

How to Use Coconut Oil Coffee Creamer
Brew your favorite [fair-trade, organic] cup of coffee (about 2 cups). Add 1-2 tbsp. of coconut oil coffee creamer to your hot coffee. After this, you can also add a teaspoon of grass-fed butter, which I like to do if I have it at hand. This is optional of course and is not part of the creamer concoction, but it will definitely enhance the creaminess and flavor of your coffee!
You can use a blender or mini bullet blender to blend the coffee plus the creamer on high for about 5 seconds. Pour into your special mug and enjoy!
The beneficial effects of coconut oil are due to the medium-chain fatty acids it contains, instead of long-chain fatty acids. A study found that eating 1 to 2 tablespoons of medium chain fats, such as coconut oil, per day increased energy expenditure by 5%, which totals to 120 calories daily for an average person.
Namely, medium chain fatty acids are quickly used for energy a soon they enter the body, which significantly boosts the metabolism.
