3 Reasons To Add Coconut Oil To Coffee
By Lindsay Sibson
Lattes, mochas, cappuccinos…. oh, how I love you so.
Creamy, silky, steamy and sweet – what is there NOT to love about these delicious and decadent hot beverages?
For me it’s 2 key ingredients: milk and sugar.
My stomach doesn’t tolerate either, which leaves me feeling like I’m going to explode at any moment when I consume them both.
Sound familiar? This article is for my fellow sensitive stomachs out there. You can still ENJOY the essence of a creamy and frothy latte without the digestion disaster.
The simple solution is to replace the dairy products (milk or cream) with COCONUT OIL and swap out the refined sugar for stevia. Give it a whirl in a blender and you will be good to go!
Not only will this beverage hug you from the inside out, the coconut oil provides excellent health benefits.
