makes 2, 12 oz servings
24 ounces of boiling water
quart mason jar
2 heaping tablespoons of organic shade grown coffee
2 tablespoons organic coconut oil
1 teaspoon organic grass fed ghee
1 teaspoon organic coconut butter
While the water is getting hot, melt coconut oil, ghee and coconut butter by placing the jar in a pan with 1 inch of simmering water. Using a hand pour system make the coffee into the jar you melted the oils into. Using a hand mixer, blend the coffee in the jar until creamy. The more you blend the more froth you can make. Serve & Enjoy!
-coconut oil is the base
-ghee adds sweet
-coconut butter makes the creamy creamy
The amounts above are just a suggestion. Add more oil for more creaminess or less depending on your personal taste. Experiment to find your perfect cup:)
-Cardamom. Finely grind the cardamom pods then fill with coffee beans and grind together until fine. Store in a tightly sealed glass jar.
-Raw Organic Cacao. Add to the final stage right before blending.
-Ceylon Cinnamon. Add to the final stage right before blending.
~ Use your imagination. Add orange zest, more chocolate, less coffee, more cinnamon or cardamom. Add cloves, nutmeg… Let your imagination go wild.
~ Coffee Alternative. For those who don’t drink coffee, don’t despair!! Coffee replacement is made of water-soluble extracts of roasted roots of dandelion, chicory and beets, and the grains of barley and rye. (most health food stores carry this, also look in the spice & tea section.) Use 1 teaspoon per cup. When using just add the water and coffee replacement to the melted oil. Mix & Enjoy!
