Try this delicious, thick and frothy coffee made with coconut milk, coconut oil, medicinal mushrooms, and stevia for a healthy fat, vegan bulletproof coffee.

ELEVATE (verb): to bring to the next level, to improve, to make better, to lift up. We’ve all heard about bulletproof coffee, yeah? Essentially BP coffee is MCT oil and butter that’s been emulsified with high-quality coffee. Yet this is Coffee, Elevated – Nutrition Stripped style with a boost of inflammation-fighting medicinal mushrooms, maca, warming nutmeg, and MCT oil (which has heaps of health benefits you can read about here that emulsifies the coffee and ingredients together). Coconut milk rich in saturated fats and gives this a super creamy taste, plus a touch of stevia to taste makes it quite the treat. Not to mention, everyone can enjoy this since it’s completely dairy-free and vegan-friendly! Oh, and you can make it in 2 minutes?! Cheers!

The Recipe

Serves 1

Print

Ingredients:

1 tablespoon organic coconut oil ideally MCT oil

1/4 cup organic full-fat canned coconut milk

1 cup freshly brewed hot coffee

2-3 drops of stevia to sweeten to taste

1/4 teaspoon of each adaptogen: powdered Chaga mushroom, Reishi mushroom, Ashwagandha (optional yet highly recommended)

1/4 teaspoon ground Maca

Freshly grated nutmeg, to taste

Directions:

Step 1

In a high-speed blender, combine all ingredients making sure the coffee is still very hot.

Step 2

Blend for less than 1 minute or until a thick foam is formed on the top, this is from the coconut oil emulsifying with the rest of the ingredients.

Voila!

Enjoy hot.

Notes

Medicinal mushroom powdered are completely optional. If you have MCT oil, I highly recommend using that instead of just coconut oil. Make it a mocha! Add 1 tablespoon cocoa powder.
