Have you ever wished there was a magical coffee drink that burned fat, was low in sugar, and made the caffeine last throughout the day instead of requiring multiple cups of coffee to stay awake? What about a cup of coffee that put you in calm control of your emotions instead of making you jittery, anxious, or stressed-out?
My friends, today is the day I bring you that magical cup.
I introduce you to (pause for dramatic effect) The Supermom Coffee drink (aka, homemade keto coffee).
Bulletproof coffee has been around for a couple years, and is especially popular with the paleo community. Featuring the addition of butter and coconut oil (or MCT oil) to your coffee, blending these ingredients with hot coffee creates a latte-esque foam at the top, similar to what you would experience from a latte at any coffee shop.
The butter and coconut oil contain high fats, which bind the caffeine molecules. This slows down the absorption of the caffeine into the bloodstream, which means the effects are extended throughout the day instead of a peak and crash.
As for hormone support? Hormones are actually specially-built fats. So a diet with quality fats like grass-fed butter and coconut oil are beneficial for building quality hormones. Quality hormones = a better control on emotions. This is generally a plus if you’re going to be a Supermom (or Super-person, whichever you prefer).
Finally, bulletproof coffee is generally popular among the paleo crowd because the good fats stimulate the metabolism to burn off fat. Sounds counterintuitive, but it’s true!
So it’s a metabolism-boosting, hormone-regulating, energy-prolonging drink. If that’s not worthy of the Supermom designation, I don’t know what is.
BUT WAIT, it gets better! I add some extra goodness to this drink to make it truly a Supermom drink:
- A teaspoon of raw honey helps add natural sweetness, while also providing immune support and allergy relief.
- A scoop of powdered collagen adds protein, as well as joint-lubricant and connective tissue-strengthening benefits.
- A 1/4 tsp cinnamon provides a warm, comforting layer of delicious, as well as aiding in blood sugar stabilization.
I told you, it’s Supermom coffee. Was I right or was I right?
Here’s how to make it:
- Fresh, hot coffee (16-ish ounces)
- 1 TBSP butter
- 1 1/2 – 2 TBSP coconut oil
- 1 TBSP collagen hydrolysate
- 1 tsp raw honey
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
Put all non-coffee ingredients in blender cup (I use my single-serve Ninja blender cup), and pour in coffee to the fill line. Blend 10-20 seconds. Enjoy!
I love making specialty coffee at home. Thankfully, this recipe is easily made in the blender, however, we currently lack the ability to make other specialty drinks. I’m very much looking forward to getting this incredible coffee bar system for Christmas. Visiting coffee houses is fun, but I can’t wait to be able to enjoy all these features!
