Golden Barrel Coconut Oil Coffee

Coconut oil in my coffee? Now why in the world would I do that? Maybe that’s what you’re thinking. Well I’m here to tell you why you need to start putting that healthful superfood in your cup o’ Joe every morning. First of all, let’s just take a look at that frothy top…


Coconut Oil Coffee

Besides the fact that it looks like you picked up your favorite latte at the local coffee shop, adding coconut oil to your coffee has health benefits. We’re all familiar with coconut oil nowadays (especially on this website…most of our baked good recipes feature Golden Barrel Coconut Oil in them.) Coconut oil is a great source of fat. Consuming fat helps you stay satisfied longer and also gives you a boost of energy. Almost 50% of the fatty acid in coconut oil is lauric acid, which also enhances the immune system. So for those reasons alone, you should try adding coconut oil to your coffee!

Coconut Oil Coffee

In order to achieve the look (and taste!) of an expensive coffee shop latte, brew your coffee as usual, then put it in a blender or food processor along with a teaspoon of coconut oil. I also added about 1/4 teaspoon cocoa powder to mine. You don’t necessarily taste the chocolate; it simply enhances the flavor of the coffee. And don’t worry about the coffee having a greasy feel or taste to it–when you blend it, the coconut oil gets emulsified and makes the coffee creamy. It really is delicious.

  1. It works great. I put a tablespoon in my oatmeal, along with honey and cinnamon, I don’t get hungry until late in the day.
