..just not always black and reliant solely on the flavor of the bean. It is difficult to find unaltered, non-processed additions to the morning ‘Joe’. The creamy texture we desire is usually the result of a fat-based components, or worse, artificial fat substitutes that fall way off of the healthy spectrum. The following is my recipe for my morning coffee flavor promoter:
-1 Can organic coconut milk (not light). Be wary of added thickeners (carrageenan etc.)
-2 Tablespoons organic pure Cacao powder
-1/2 Tsp. organic vanilla extract OR ½ Tsp. organic vanilla bean powder
-¼ Tsp pure stevia (optional for those who must have sweeter flavor)
Place all ingredients into micro-blender, blend for minimum of 2 minutes. Keep stored in refrigerator and add 1-2 Tbsp to each 8oz. coffee.
