Coconut Spice Latte

If you're trying to avoid dairy, or simply want a change to your daily cup of java, this recipe is for you. It is simple, fast and costs much less than the fancy coffee shops.


The key is to use a full-fat coconut milk (typically from a can). If you don't have, the boxed milk will taste just as good, but it just won't be as creamy (honestly, this is what I use).


The body uses coconut fat (a medium-chain-triglyceride) as a substitute for carbohydrates when we are reducing sugar and refined grains in our diet. This is one of the reasons why coconut is gaining considerable favour in many diets and natural products geared towards weight loss, athletic performance and managing blood sugar.


The healthy fat content also gives this homemade latte a creamy decadence, without the guilt. Serve it HOT or cold, depending on what Mother Nature serves up this week.


Serves 2

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups of prepared coffee (ideally fair trade and organic)

  • 1/2 cup coconut cream, full-fat coconut milk or coconut milk

Options:

  • Add a dash of cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg OR pumpkin spice blend for more of a "spiced" coffee

  • A serving of upgraded collagen protein (to help heal gut lining)

  • 1tsp of medium-chain-triglycerides (ketogenic version)


Preparation:

  • Pour coffee, coconut milk and whatever other options you like into a blender.

  • Blend on medium to medium-high for one or two minutes (depends on the power of your blender).

  • Serve warm or pour over ice for an iced-latte.
