The best type of coffee I have ever found is BulletProof Coffee here but you can use any organic espresso coffee or my personal favorite, the Bone Broth coffee as our coffee source.
The coconut milk is meant to be the creamer, so simply use it as such. If you choose to use the bone broth protein than mix it in after the water and coconut milk are fully mixed. If the water is scalding, than it will damage the proteins in the bone broth protein. It should be warm enough to drink in a desired way when you mix in the protein powder.
Dr Jockers Comments:
Most coffee lovers could not possibly imagine giving up coffee. Although most natural health programs recommend avoiding coffee it actually contains some great health benefits. Coffee is very rich in chlorogenic acid which helps to stabilize blood sugar levels. Stable blood sugar levels will improve energy and brain function and reduce inflammatory stress.
The “darkness” of the coffee refers to the color of the bean after it has been roasted. The newest research has found that dark roast coffee has more anti-oxidants than light roast. In this study, it restored blood levels of glutathione and vitamin E more effectively. The dark roast also led to a significant body weight reduction in overweight volunteers.
Coconut milk is loaded with powerful medium-chain triglycerides that have a profound effect on metabolism, the immune system and brain function. You can use either full-fat canned coconut milk or the lighter carton variety. The canned is more concentrated fats that make this coffee a meal replacement that should sustain one for at least 3-4 hours after consuming. The lighter variety may not provide the necessary sustenance for a meal but you could add a tbsp. or two of coconut oil or grass-fed butter to add more healthy fats if you like.
You can use different forms of liquid stevia for flavoring. At a health food store or whole foods you can get chocolate flavored, cinnamon flavored, vanilla flavored and grape flavored. A slight pinch of pink salt provides key minerals and electrolytes and helps knock out the bitter stevia aftertaste that some do not like.
Add in the Coffee Bone Broth Protein for 20 grams of collagen rich protein that helps improve your joints, skin, hair, nails, gut and immune system.
