    Coffee and Coconut Oil??

    Shop Now
    Okay, so I've been reading a lot of posts and when people talk about their coffee a lot of them mention adding coconut oil to it. What does this do to the coffee? doesn't the consistency get strange? Anyone who has tried it care to give their opinion? I'm really curious about this!

    I put coconut oil in my coffee every morning. (1 cup) Luv Luv Luv it. I've really don't even like to drink coffee any more without it. I use about 1/2 teaspoon + to one cup. Consistency is about the same just alittle bit oily, makes your lips feel good IMO. LOL!

    Though I like butter a little bit more, 1/2 tablespoon of coconut oil to a 12 oz mug of espresso is yummy. I blend it in the blender. It only gets a little oily if I let the coffee get cold.

    It's much better blended, as in using a blender. Adds flavor and froth.

    The fat will keep me full until afternoon. So it's also my breakfast.

    I have butter AND coconut oil. Blend/whisk it. While hot it just tastes creamy, but will get a bit of an oil-slick if you let it get cooler ....

    My usual breakfast

    1/8 cup unsweetened coconut or almond milk (to soakup the gelatin while coffee brews)
    2-4 tbs gelatin (gelatin makes it very frothy)
    2 tbs kerrygold butter
    2 tbs coconut oil
    2-4 squares 90% dark caco bar
    12-16 oz coffee
    3-4 packets stevia to offset the salted butter (wish I could source unsalted Kerrygold in AK)
    blender it until caco is melted, about 30 seconds

    This tides me over for 5-6 hours and then its not the MUST EAT NOW hunger like I use to get on CW.

    I'm trying this! Gelatin in coffee. How perfect. I've been wanting to incorporate gelatin somewhere. Thanks for sharing.

    Coconut milk for me. Just makes more sense and tastes better. And I don't have a magic bullet or time to clean a blender every day.

    Gelatin is an incomplete protein, you need to consume eggs etc with it to make it complete.
