I recently started adding organic, unrefined coconut oil to my coffee in the morning. I use it in addition to my creamer, but some people use it alone with honey or other natural sweeteners. The trick is to Coconut Oil Coffee is to BLEND it using a blender or bullet type device. The result is frothy, creamy, delicious coffee! Try it! Blending it instead of stirring it keeps it from separating. **Update… I stated adding about a tsp-tbsp of organic grass-fed butter to my coffee as well. It gives it a wonderfully creamy texture!
Not only is it delicious, but Dr. Oz recommends it because “Studies have show that intake ofcoconut oil can help our bodies mount resistance to both viruses and bacteria that can cause illness. Even more, it also can help to fight off yeast, fungus and candida. Coconut oil can also positively affect our hormones for thyroid and blood-sugar control. People who take coconut oil also tend to have improvements in how they handle blood sugar since coconut can help improve insulin use within the body. Coconut oil can boost thyroid function helping to increase metabolism, energy and endurance. It increases digestion and helps to absorb fat-soluble vitamins.”
His view on Coconut oil and Weight: “One 2009 study found that women who consumed 30 milliliters (about 2 tablespoons) of coconut oil daily for 12 weeks not only did not gain more weight, but actually had lowered amounts of abdominal fat, a type of fat that is difficult to lose, and contributes to more heart problems.”
Does it work? I am down 96 pounds as of today… coincidence? Maybe. Either way the coconut oilhas a wonderful flavor in the coffee so I will keep doing it!
** A few people were wanting step by step instructions so I made an info-graphic for you! I now add grass-fed, unsalted butter to my coffee and coconut oil! It makes it so creamy and it is a great, healthy fat to get your day started!
