Perfect Cuppa Coffee

I’d like to think of myself as a coffee connoisseur. But first, let’s go back to when I first my forever, faithful friend: Coffee.

Fifteen-years-old, puffy-eyed and exhausted from swim practice and studying for finals the night before, my dad told me to "drink this stuff, it will help." He assumed that would be my first and only cup during my vibrant teenage years. He was wrong. Very wrong. Years and 1,000 cups later, I’m a coffee addict. I drink it every day, multiple times per day and because of my job, sometimes well into the night. I live for coffee! I scour the states searching for the best coffee on the market from the best roasters. I’d like to think I know a thing or two about good coffee. Throughout my fitness journey, coffee has always been a staple. I use it as my pre-workout, I use it when I need an energy boost, oh who am I kidding, besides water the next thing I’m constantly drinking is, you guessed it, coffee!

A few years ago I discovered something akin to “bulletproof coffee” where one mixes grass-fed butter, and dark roast coffee using a blender. Here’s my spin on this delectable delight, and what I’ve coined my coffee version as liquid gold. Since I’ve started making my coffee this way, I’ve noticed more energy throughout my day, less lulls and cravings for crappy stuff, better skin, and a kick ass energy boost. I’ve also noticed the need for less cups of coffee throughout my day since this stuff is like a meal. No promises, though, this has been my personal experience with this liquid gold. So, why not give it a try and see for yourself! 

What you'll need:

  • Organic Dark Roast Brewed Coffee (the darker the roast, the better the taste.)
  • Organic Raw Honey 
  • Organic Coconut Oil 
  • Heavy Whipping Cream
  • Homemade Pumpkin Spice (recipe for that coming soon!) 
  • Turmeric
  • An immersion blender (you can find them cheap-cheap on Amazon.)

Let's make it!

  1. Grab your immersion blender cup and add a tablespoon of raw honey and 2-tablespoons of organic coconut oil.
  2. Add 3-teaspoons of pumpkin spice and a 4-teaspoons of turmeric. I usually load the turmeric in since it's tasteless and it's oh so good you! 
  3. Add your heavy whipping cream and 1-cup of dark roast coffee. 
  4. Blend on the high setting for 40-seconds until nice and frothy. You want it looking like a latte.
