Fully Charged Coffee
I used to think coffee was the drink of the devil, until I was introduced to this.
You get all the flavour with a steady and longer-lasting caffeine hit, without feeling over-stimulated or heavy like you do after a regular coffee with milk. After my morning stretch and oil pull, this is how I start my working day.
1 espresso shot (or 1 serve ground coffee)
2-3 cardamom pods
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 small tsp organic butter
½ tsp vanilla extract
granulated or liquid stevia, to taste
sprinkle of ground cinnamon
Place your coffee shot in a glass or cup, then top up to almost full with boiling water. Transfer to a blender and add all remaining ingredients, except the cinnamon.
Blend for about 20-30 seconds until well combined. Place a small strainer (I use a cone-shaped wine strainer) over the glass or cup you were using and pour the coffee into it. Use a teaspoon to help push all the liquid through the strainer, as this also helps create a frothy effect at the top of the glass. Sprinkle with ground cinnamon and enjoy!
Like me, you may like to heat the coffee up for an extra 10 seconds or so before drinking if you find it has cooled down too much while blending. I personally like my coffee HOT!
