Healthy Coffee Drinks

Coffee is one of the most simple pleasures in life. In the past, I’d add Stevia, a splash of milk, and our favorite sugar-free creamer, Italian Sweet Cream, to my coffee. That was until I realized the coffee creamer had Splenda and many other harmful chemicals.

So, I started looking for new ways to drink my morning java that would be equally (or even more) delicious and much less harmful to my health. I wanted to make a healthy coffee drink that tasted amazing!

When researching coconut oil, I learned that some people like to add it to their coffee. I tried it and liked how it tasted, but I couldn’t get past the oily and less-than-appealing way it looked.

Then I learned that people mix their coffee, coconut oil, and add-ins in a blender (I use my NutriBullet), so I decided to try it too…and boy am I glad I did! This was a major upgrade health-wise, and it also tasted yummier and richer.


Why You Should Try This Health Coffee Drink Recipe

(And here are the bullet points…)

  • Because it’s amazingly delicious, homemade, and rivals anything you could buy at the overpriced Starbucks
  • Because coconut oil is a rich source of saturated medium-chain fatty acids, it can help you lose weight – if that’s something you’re going for (1).
  • It is quick and easy to make
  • It gives you a boost of energy that lasts all morning
  • Ahem…who doesn’t love chocolate for breakfast?

If you’re looking for a homemade energy drink to stay awake, you’re in the right place!

Please note if you’ve never tried coconut oil, you’ll probably want to start with one teaspoon and work your way up. If you’re not used to it, you may notice some mild side effects because coconut oil accelerates your metabolism. Woo hoo!

I’ve never experienced any side effects, but I want to make you aware that this is possible.

    1. Hi Mary! Correct. If you are strictly adhering to a fasting schedule, as a general rule, you don’t want to go over 100 calories while fasting.

      That said, if you’ve been fasting for a while and do hard workouts you might be able to get away with drinking this coffee if you keep the calories low. I do intermittent fasting daily and know what my body can handle at this point. I drink Keto Kreme (an exogenous ketone supplement from Pruvit) most mornings in my coffee now and enjoy this coffee drink also. I simply try to be mindful of the total caloric intake in the beverage so it doesn’t break my fast.

      I hope this helps!

  1. This recipe sounds good! I plan to try it. Also, I did not know you can get some fiber from coffee. Thanks for the article!
