Mocha Coconut Oil Coffee Creamer
Why coconut oil for a coffee creamer? Coconut oil seems to be a trendy fad these days – bulletproof coffee, fatty coffee; it goes by many names. For every article you can find that lists the health benefits of consuming coconut oil and it’s MCTs, you’ll also find opposing articles telling you to stick with less saturated fats. So, if you’re interested in the health science behind coconut oil in your diet – I urge you to do your own research on the topic. (this is where I should insert a disclaimer that I’m not a health or medical professional – please seek professional advice for detailed nutritional information.)
However – I do consume coconut oil in moderation and I do like using coconut oil in my coffee as a great dairy-free and gluten-free alternative for coffee creamer. When blended with my coffee – the coconut oil creates a velvety coffee drink that reminds me of my old latte days.
How to make Mocha Coconut Oil Coffee Creamer
Time needed: 5 minutes.
- Combine ingredients in a small mixing bowl.
3/4 cup coconut oil – softened
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 Tbsp. cacao powder
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
- Using a spoon, stir to combine.
- Note – there may be small chunks of coconut oil but that is okay.
- Store in an air-tight jar at room temperature.
Coconut oil itself will not break your fast – however, the addition of the maple syrup may increase insulin levels which may break your fast. I would suggest speaking to a health professional for exact fasting protocals.
Great question! I suggest combining your coffee + the mocha coconut oil coffee creamer into a blender and blending for a few seconds. Or, if your cup is large enough, you can use a milk frother or immersion blender to blend inside your cup. Either
A very popular question indeed – and the answer is yes, coconut oil can act as a natural laxative and may stimulate muscle contractions on your bowels.
There is a lot of conflicting information out there regarding the overall health pros and cons of coconut oil. I would suggest speaking to a dietary or nutrition professional for personal recommendations. I highly recommend Cara at Street Smart Nutriton.
When using this creamer, I would suggest starting with 1 teaspoon per day if you’ve never used coconut oil in your diet and gradually increasing up to 1-2 tablespoons. I limit my consumption of coconut oil and use this creamer a few times a week in combination with my collagen.
