Coconut Oil Coffee

During this time of year the sun doesn’t rise until well into the morning and waking up without the sun is not easy. The one thing I can look forward to is my morning coffee. Within the last 2 years I have become a coffee drinker, but an extremely picky one, so finding the perfect coffee has been a challenge. I finally found the perfect concoction to drink every morning and that is coconut oil coffee. I know this may not sound appealing, but trust me, one cup and you will be hooked. Coconut oil is a saving grace because I use it in every aspect in my life whether for cooking, beauty, or as a barrier for essential oils. Overall my favorite way to use this magically oil is in my coffee and I want to share with you all, how to make the most wonderful drink for you to enjoy every morning.

Step 1: Pick your favorite coffee and prepare it in your coffee pot and wait for that perfect cup to brew.

Step 2: Pour your freshly brewed coffee into your blender and add coconut oil and creamer and pulse for about 1 minute. I would use a spoonful of coconut oil for 2 full cups of coffee and go from there. As for the creamer I just add as much as I like, you can always add more later if you wish.

Step 3: Pour the blended coffee and foam into your cup and enjoy! I do every morning.

Beware the foam tends to leave a little mustache on your face! Let me know what you think and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Caffeine Obsessed at Luke’s

On this fall morning I walked to Luke’s diner to enjoy breakfast and cup after cup of steaming, hot coffee….I wish! Gilmore Girls is one of my all time favorite shows and this morning I was lucky enough to enjoy Luke’s coffee and be a part of the caffeine obsession. Coffee House on Cherry Street partnered with Netflix to celebrate the 16th anniversary of the Gilmore Girls premiere and I actually got to feel a part of the show. If you have ever watched this show you notice that coffee is a part of almost every scene and after you watch 10 minutes you crave a cup. The line at the coffee shop was out the door, but the crisp fall air and the anticipation of a nice cup of joe was beyond exciting. I would love to be part of the Stars Hollow community, stay at Lorelai’s Inn, drink coffee at Luke’s every morning/afternoon/evening, but for now this little adventure will have to be enough. I can’t wait for the premiere the day after Thanksgiving! I’ll be Netflix watching all day!
