Imagine waking up to a sweet and smooth cup of coconut flavor coffee that is healthy and clean. Say “NO” to a coffee creamer that is full of chemicals and say “YES” to this healthy and clean coconut oil coffee/latte to start your morning strong!
How was your morning? Other than fighting my urge to wanting to stay in my warm and soft bed, mine was good. See, I am not a morning person but what made my morning good was this healthy and clean coconut oil coffee/latte! It is made with 5 ingredients. There is no preservatives, no food coloring, no ungodly amount of sugar, and no dairy!!
I was always slightly sensitive to dairy but it was never to a point where I need to avoid dairy products until……couple years ago. Thankfully, I still can enjoy creamy pasta, pizza, cheese, and some dairy products in a small quantity but it definitely needs to be a small quantity. I used to take my coffee with splash of milk but I slowly converted to non-dairy milk products.
I actually enjoy non-dairy milk product such as soy and almond milk in my coffee but the problem is darn curdling of coffee that makes the coffee look so unappetizing! The curdling of coffee is caused by the high acidity and hot temperature of the coffee. It is perfectly safe to drink this “curdled coffee” but not many people want to start their morning with that!
So I tried many many different non-dairy creamers but a lot of them were too artificially flavored, too sweet, and/or too thin. I missed the subtle sweet and creamy body of milk that pairs so well with my coffee. Then I found Califia Farms Hazelnut Creamer. I really liked the flavor but not a single grocery story near me carry this product so I have to make a long drive to pick this creamer. So I was back to unsatisfying non-dairy creamers. Then I saw something about adding coconut oil to your coffee on social media! I am all about trying different things so I gave it a try.
Many of these social media posts used magic bullet or high power blender to blend in oil so that it doesn’t just sit on top of your coffee. I don’t have magic bullet. I don’t even have a blender. What I have though is a battery operating milk frother! Ah-ha!! I poured some almond milk, stirred in about a teaspoon of coconut oil into my coffee and I gave it a go with my frother.
The result was simply AMAZING!!! My healthy and clean coconut oil coffee was creamy, smooth, no curdling what-so-ever and just absolutely heavenly! Then I wanted little more coconut flavor so I added splash of coconut milk in addition to my almond milk. Guys, I have been taking my coffee this way since the beginning of this year and it literally helps/motivates me to get out of bed.
During the weekday, I just add my pre-mixed almond and coconut milk mixture (that I bottled in my old coffee creamer container, haha) and coconut oil right into my coffee and stick in my milk frother to fix my morning coconut oil coffee. I add either agave nectar or maple syrup to sweetened my coffee. But if you want to really treat yourself by serving creamy and frothy coconut oil coffee/latte, try heating your milk and coconut oil in a separate cup in the microwave and froth it first then pour the perfectly delicious mixture on top of your coffee to create latte like coffee!
So there you have it, my healthy and clean coconut oil coffee/latte that has helped me get out of bed in these cold wintery mornings! Hope this coffee recipe can make your morning little more happier. Happy drinking, my friends.
