I’ve been making “bulletproof” coffee for a few years now and I find myself constantly sharing it with people so I figured, why not share it on the blog? Just recently I’ve starting putting Collagen Peptides in my morning coffee and I’m noticed a huge difference in the hydration of my skin and hair and nails, and my joints. There are 2 different ways to make a healthy pumpkin spice latte so I’ll share both ways but my favorite way is to use a good coffee (like this Trader Joe’s one) instead of adding the pumpkin spices to my coffee.
Here’s what you’ll need:
1. Coffee (regular or pumpkin spice flavor)
If you don’t use pumpkin spice coffee, use a pumpkin spice blend
2. Healthy Fat (I use coconut oil about 2 tablespoons worth)
4. Vital Protein Collagen Peptide
Blend all the above in a blender until nice and creamy then ENJOY!
This recipe is Whole30 approved as long as you don’t add any sugar. I drink this coffee every morning and if I want a second cup of coffee I’ll drink it black. I’m trying to cut back to one cup a day and replace it with a herbal tea in the afternoon, as long as I drink all my water for the day. This is a great alternate to a fatty latte everyday (I’m looking at you Starbucks). I tried to drink a caramel latte after our first round of Whole30 and I got SO SICK from it, must have been all the sugar so I’ve given up Starbucks altogether pretty much.
Anyone else have some great coffee tricks for the morning? Any favorite coffee beans I should try out? Always looking for a new one!
Have a great week everyone and stay caffeinated 😉
