We’re just wrapping up our January Group Cleanse and as we transition into our 80:20 eating, we know we’re not the only ones looking forward to reintroducing a warming caffeinated beverage into our morning routines.
Our morning cup of coffee is one of the hardest things for many of us to give up during the 14-day cleanse, so we wanted to create a healthy take on this beloved energizing drink.
We’ve come up with the perfect way to up-level your morning cup of joe – Adaptogenic Coffee Creamer!
This creamer is packed with superfood properties and adds the perfect amount of creamy goodness to your favorite coffee.
The real star of this recipe is Lion’s Mane – an adaptogenic mushroom that can help support memory and brain function, helps mental sharpness and clarity, and according to some studies, it might help prevent dementia or alzheimers. We recommend the organic Om Mushrooms brand.
MCT oil provides extra energy and helps stabilize blood sugar. MCT stands for medium-chain triglycerides, which are dietary fats that are more easily absorbed and your body is able to turn into caloric energy right away. Adding cinnamon adds sweetness and helps support healthy blood sugar levels. Note: if you haven’t had MCT oil before, make sure you start out with the lower suggested amount. If you notice any digestional issues, consider decreasing the amount of MCT oil you’re using.
This creamer really does do it all!
Blend with or pour into your favorite clean coffee (look for organic, shade-grown, single bean coffee blends – we like Kicking Horse Coffee) and you’ve got a deliciously creamy adaptogenic latte!
Not a coffee fan? This creamer is also super tasty with matcha, chai, or black tea.
