All I got to say is ....Coconut Cream.....stuff is AWESOME! I'm one of those people who can't handle coconut oil by the spoonful. I don't much love butter in my coffee either. I DO like heavy cream in my coffee, BUT the coconut cream lets me get that ever so valued coconut fatty acid profile that I've been missing . If you can I highly recommend using plenty of it in your coffee, especially if shooting for that ketotic kick. I'll be honest, I'm not exactly aiming for ketosis, but I find that coconut fat has enough positive attributes that just finding a way to have incorporated more of it makes me happy.
Oh, and I'm also not a fan of that coconut oil slick that you get when trying to put coconut oil in the coffee.....blah!
Make sure it's unsalted butter. Many use Kerrygold. I use an inexpensive battery operated frother. I use a tablespoon or a little less of the butter and put it in my cup, fill the cup about half full or a little less with hot coffee, froth and then add the rest of the coffee. It's not much different than using heavy cream except maybe a little fattier. I've also done this with the brewing chocolate aka Crio Bru, Choffy, or roasted cacao beans from Chocolate Alchemy (3 brands I'm aware of). This not something I do everyday. It's more of a treat for me.
When I first read about this coffee I thought you were all nuts! But I have to say, I tried it yesterday and I'm hooked! I thought, how odd that it tastes that good! anyway, I worked out this morning, then had the coffee and it's now almost 11:30 and I'm just now getting hungry. I really suffer from Low Blood Sugar ( I might even be Hypoglycemic) so it's very hard for me to go long without food. This might be a big help for me to get some more fat in my diet.
Thanks for this great tasting tip!
Coconut milk in mine, for the ketones. 420 calories, almost all fat - no insulin spike (conflicting info abounds!). Appetite not just curbed, but fuel provided for real life working energy. Often enough, I just eat it with my food, though, since the whole 'one meal a day' thing sort of dictates that. But I sometimes drink it while "fasting" since it's all fat anyway.
