My morning coffee ritual is muy importante. I personally prefer to have coffee at home rather than on the go, so I can put all my favorite potions in here to make my magical morning elixir. Unlike most cups of coffee, which are made of…coffee, water and perhaps some milk or cream, I like to add a number of different goodies into it to make it even more energizing and healthy.

Dietary fiber: In the event that you don’t eat enough fiber (or even if you do), I like to add in a healthy dash of tasteless fiber powder. You won’t even know it’s there.

Collagen powder: We’re all trying to stay young…even those who are in their 20s. Better to start early, right? So, I love to add collagen powder into drinks. Just a tiny scoop of this will do the trick. I hope.

Cinnamon: This is a powerhouse. This stuff is essential to reduce inflammation, improve your brainpower and helps to fight infection. I also love a good cinnamon herbal tea. Yum.

MCT oil: Here we go again with the oil. This stuff is already in liquid form so you don’t have to scoop it out of the jar and melt it. Just squeeze about a teaspoon to a tablespoon in there and prepare for a greasy mouth. You’ll just have to deal with it.

Coconut milk (unsweetened): I cannot drink my coffee black. No, no, no. But I’m really not a fan of cream. I have often used unsweetened almond milk as a substitute, but it takes a whole lot to get that milky look and taste. Soooo, I had some coconut milk lying around and decided to give that a try. Major success. This stuff makes the coffee taste great and you don’t need a lot. It’s almost as heavy as cream (in a good way)!

So now you see that coffee doesn’t have to be so simple! It’s entirely up to you, but I love to spice mine up in a number of ways.
