Water might be essential to life, and good wine can make a meal. But when it comes to an elixir that energizes and generally makes us perkier, more productive people, only coffee can claim that title. And if you’re anything like us, your first foray into the stuff likely started off innocent—a fondness for caramel Frappuccinos, perhaps. Then came a liking to lattes, and before you knew it you had a serious affinity (and at times, a NEED) for extra espresso shots. We’ve all been there. However on most days, we relegate our caffeine consumption to a plain old cup of joe. Nothing fancy, just enough fuel to get us out of that initial morning fog.
More recently though, we’ve been kicking our coffee up a notch. After catching wind that some of our favorite health food bloggers were blending coconut oil (!!!) into their morning cuppa joe, we knew we had to give the concoction a try. We already eat it, cook with it, slather it, swish it and scrub ourselves with the stuff. It was only a matter of time until we started sipping it, too. And while we can understand that not everyone is as coco-nuts about coconut oil as we are, we can earnestly say that this is one food trend worth trying. We’ve said sayonara to sugar, kissed coffee creamer goodbye, and fully converted ourselves to devout coconut oil coffee drinkers. Still not convinced? Well then keep reading, because we’re making a serious case for putting coconut oil in your coffee.
