My Favorite Coffees

Creamer Options

Good… 

  • Almond Milk (make sure it’s free of carrageenan, a seaweed-based thickener that causes gut inflammation!)

  • Nut Pods

  • Refrigerated Organic Non-Dairy Creamers (Soy and carrageenan free)

    These are classified as “good” because are a bit more processed than the other options,, and get your taste buds used to sweetness first thing in the morning!

Better…

Best!

  • Coconut Milk

    • Personally, I opt for 1/2 scoop of collagen and a splash of pure organic coconut milk in each cup of my coffee. I don’t use sweetener, either!

  • Organic Heavy Whipping Cream

  • Butter Coffee (I recommend a maximum of 1 tsp butter, 1 tsp. coconut oil/ brain octane oil).

    • Brew organic coffee, then add it to a blender with your fat(s) of choice. Blend until smooth. Add collagen once fats are incorporated and process for 10-15 seconds to incorporate.

      • Collagen is a fragile protein, to ensure it stays intact it’s best to blend it in at the end!

    • Why not “Bulletproof” Coffee?

      • Traditional “bulletproof” coffee recipes have much higher quantities of butter and coconut oil which encourage your body to use this external fat source instead of burning its own fat.

    These “best” options are all Real Food and just 1-2 ingredients.


The Skinny on Sweeteners

  • It is best to completely avoid sweetener in your coffee as it can increase cravings!

  • If you must have sweet coffee, use either liquid stevia drops or evaporated cane juice, and slowly decrease the amount so your taste buds can adjust.

I hope this cleared up some of the confusion around coffee! I’d love to hear about your winning coffee combo- and pictures are welcomed as well. Let me know what you put in your coffee in the comments below!
