I heard this great quote that puts things in perspective regarding my January sugar/dairy detox: Losing a parent is hard. Childbirth is hard. Beating cancer is hard. Drinking your coffee black is not hard.
Ok, I'm not drinking black coffee. But I am drinking it without my coffee creamer indulgence! I'm actually enjoying it blended with ghee (clarified butter) and a dash of cinnamon. It makes a frothy, latte-like drink. You could also add coconut milk (the canned stuff) or almond milk (but check the label for added sugars!!)
Here is a great recipe!
- 1 teaspoon ghee
- 1 teaspoon coconut oil
- 1-2 cup hot coffee
- 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon unsweetened almond milk (remember to read the label) or canned coconut milk
1. Put the ghee, coconut oil, almond or coconut milk, cinnamon, and coffee in the blender.
2. Blend for 5-10 seconds. The coffee turns a foamy, creamy colour. Pour into your coffee cup and enjoy!
