My Three Favorite Fatty Coffee Recipes
A “Fatty Coffee” is a great way to start the day for a plethora of reasons. Firstly, we have to consider what it prevents us from eating as part of it’s “benefits”. If your current “breakfast” is processed, refined, or contains sugar - consider yourself woke.
Next, the fatty coffee fills us with calories, satisfies hunger, supports healthy metabolism of caffeine, provides a vehicle for superfoods, and kicks our brain into a higher gear.
If you need more reasons that that, please consult Google. Otherwise, here are my three favorite recipes:
Crab Shack Delight
A satisfying, energy boosting vegan fatty coffee for daily consumption. Beginning with homemade almond milk - or otherwise the highest quality we can find with no crazy ingredients, we add coconut oil for fast-acting energy and ketone production, stevia for sweetness, and a double-shot of espresso to perk up the engines.
4oz hot almond milk (or other nut milk)
1 tbsp virgin coconut oil (cold-pressed)
2-3 drops organic stevia
2 shots of espresso
This brain-boosting, anti-inflammatory concoction is loaded with ingredients that have been used medicinally for thousands of years. Turmeric, the star of the show, has been shown to reduce pain and inflammation throughout the entire body, but we don’t stop there. We then add grass-fed ghee for butyrate, which plays a central role in gut health via the microbiota, coconut oil for fast-acting energy and ketone production, astragalus for stress redox, and lion’s mane for mental acuity and focus. Zing!!
In a blender, combine:
4oz boiling water
1 shot espresso
1-2 tbsp coconut cream
1 tbsp grass-fed ghee
1 tbsp virgin coconut oil
1-2 tsp organic turmeric powder
1 packet FourSigmatic Lion’s Mane
1/4 tsp astragalus
1/8 tsp vanilla extract
3 drops organic stevia
The Swole Patrol
A protein-based fatty coffee for your hardest workout days. Catapulting the Crab Shack Delight into a unparalleled muscle building, joint repairing, immune boosting nectar, I take the “everyday brew” and add a blend of highly bioavailable collagen peptides, protein and colostrum, plus MCT oil and chaga mushroom.
If this doesn’t raise you up to the next level, nothing will…
